The 5 Fastest Muscle Cars
The smell of rubber burning and exhaust spewing, the scream of tires grinding against pavement and the crowd cheering on their favorite, and the heat and sweat of a summer night filled with adrenaline – that, my friend, is a drag race.
While everyone likes an exhilarating and exciting drag race, seeing no one in front of you when the checkered flag is flashed, holding the coveted trophy or just the having bragging rights shows you are the winner, you have the fastest car – everyone lusts for a taste of that! That is why I bring you the Top 5 Fastest Muscle Cars according to Muscle Car Review Magazine, ranked based on their elapsed time on a quarter-mile track.

Masters of Mileage: Car Longevity Standouts
Carmakers are in the business of making money by making cars. In order to sell cars, people need to have cars. Cars need to be replaced as the parts of the cars only work for so long. Car longevity has changed over the years. In the mid-century, cars were expected to last for about 100,000 miles. Now, they should last for at least 200,000 miles. Even though most cars will only last for so many miles, there are some people who work hard to be able to drive their cars for an impressive amount of miles.
Masterpiece Vintage Cars
Just south of Indianapolis, Indiana is a car lover’s dream: the Masterpiece Vintage Cars showroom. Like a candy store for classic car enthusiasts, this showroom is stocked with a variety of refurbished and restored classics, like 1930s Fords, 1950s Chevys, and 1960s American muscle cars. Even if you aren’t sure you’re ready to buy or sell, this showplace is well worth a visit.
The owners and operators of Masterpiece Vintage Cars brought together decades of experience and a passion for older cars to help serve fellow car enthusiasts with buying, selling, consignment, shipping, financing, and even in searching for that elusive dream car.

They work with first-time buyers and experienced car collectors alike.
Long Live the Last Dealership
If you have ever wondered what happened to dealerships after automotive brands shuttered, you no longer have to wonder. In many cases, the dealerships either close or adopt a new brand. When Oldsmobile stopped production in 2004, dealerships took on Buicks or GMC instead. You will be hard pressed to find any Oldsmobile dealerships anywhere in the United States and the same goes for Pontiac dealerships, too. Those dealerships expired in October 2010. While General Motors seems to have a stronghold on the status of its shuttered brands, other manufacturers were not so tight fisted.
