It is so easily recognisable, even people who aren’t particularly into cars can recognise an early Corvette when it rumbles down the street past them. As GM’s crowning jewel, the ‘Vette has had more than 60 years of production and 8 generations and has been, in the most part, incredibly ...


Oldsmobile 442 – Classic Muscle Car Review 2020

Author Elise  |  25th November 2020

By Jamie Wills As there was Beyoncé Knowles, so there was Solange. As there was Michael Jackson, so there was Jermaine. And as there was Gary Lineker, so there was Wayne. The sibling fame bandwagon may have mixed results, but it has always been an irresistible lure. So it was in 1964 when Oldsmobile saw General Motors stablemate Pontiac GTO being released and hit pay dirt ...

Author Elise  |  20th November 2020

By Chris Williams Selecting the name ‘Cougar’ for the badge of your car was always going to be a double-edged sword. Frankly, it would not have mattered so much if the Mercury Cougar had been a harmless hatchback; the name ‘Cougar’ would have given it some feisty spice.  Instead, the Mercury Cougar was designed as a grown-up muscle car and therefore completely analogous of its target market: ...


AMC Javelin – Classic Muscle Car Review 2020

Author Elise  |  12th November 2020

By Niamh Smith ‘And They’re Off!’ The AMC Javelin was one of the last pony cars to leave the stable. They had already been pipped to the post by the big three (GM, Ford and Chrysler) and had already “been there, done that, got the t-shirt!”.  But for AMC, being late to the party wasn’t the disaster you would think. In fact, it saved them by the skin ...

Author Elise  |  11th November 2020

By Charlotte Iggulden Since the arrival of the first automobiles, automotive design has become an art form and an indelible part of culture and history. Through the decades, visual artists and art collectors across the world have been inspired by their pleasing lines and curvature, as both machines and works of art.  Nowadays, automotive art is everywhere.

Lawman Mustangs and the 1970 Military Performance Tour

Author Elise  |  9th November 2020

By Charlie Fuller When I was invited to write for Muscle Car UK, I wanted to start with a bang. When I think about classic Mustangs and American muscle cars, this extraordinary story of American wartime solidarity always jumps to my mind. Picture the scene: it’s the late sixties and the Vietnam War is raging on with no end in sight.  At this time, there was a ...

The Best Aussie Muscle Cars Ever Produced

Author Elise  |  2nd November 2020

By Chris Williams Having recently arrived in the UK from New Zealand, I have been taken aback at the popularity of muscle cars here. The classic muscle car scene is healthy in seemingly every county; those who do not own any American muscle still drool over them; one can even buy the new Mustang with a medium-rare, T-bone V8 no less.  I shouldn’t be surprised. Muscle cars ...

Kennedy’s inauguration—the Thunderbird is practically a celebrity in its own right.  Spanning eleven generations of models with over 4.4m T-birds produced, Ford’s sporty, sophisticated and elegant Thunderbird established its own market segment: personal luxury cars.
