AMC AMX Review – Classic Muscle Car Review

Author Elise  |  1st March 2021

By Owen Pham American Motors Corporation (AMC) was born after the largest corporate merger at the time (merger of Hudson Motor Car Company & Nash-Kelvinator Corporation in 1954). The amalgamation was Nash-Kelvinator President, George W. Mason’s strategy to revolutionize AMC into the next big thing and compete with the Big Three (Chrysler, GM, Ford). AMC was famous for producing safe and economical cars. However, their products were ...

Chevrolet El Camino Review – Classic Muscle Cars Review 

Author Elise  |  22nd February 2021

By Charlotte Iggulden ‘El Camino’ translates from Spanish as ‘the path’ or ‘the way.’ It is an appropriate name for a car that signalled a new direction for General Motors (GM). From 1959-60 and 1964-87, the Chevrolet El Camino was a vehicle hybrid, combining the practicality of a pickup truck, passenger car comfort, stylish design, and, with the Super Sport package, high-performance muscle. According to The Drive, ...

Owner’s Review and Roadtrip Preparation—Jonathan Bee

Author Elise  |  5th February 2021

In this blog series, MCUK interviews the owners of classic muscle cars. We sometimes discuss the cars themselves and their performance, but also the memories they create and how muscle cars fit in our busy modern lifestyles. Joining us this week is Jonathan Bee, an ex-RAF civil servant with a 1965 Ford Mustang. He tells us about his roadtrips in the US and Europe, along with ...

 Car and Classic Review—Magazine and Website Review 2021

Author Elise  |  20th January 2021

By Niamh Smith What annoys me about classic car magazines is that it’s all too easy to only celebrate the perfect concours examples or the nut and bolt restorations that the owner will have a breakdown if you so much look at the car. Don’t get me wrong, it’s important to have pride in a vehicle that you’ve put a lot of time, effort and money ...

Classic Ford Maverick Review—Classic Muscle Car Review 2020

Author Elise  |  15th January 2021

By Charlotte Iggulden Maverick definition: An unorthodox/independent person who acts free from constraints and organisational guidelines.  The Ford nameplate refers to an unbranded form of cattle. Maverick also applies to the free-roaming mustang and Ford’s pony car, a symbol of the pioneering spirit of the American west. Ford’s compact car, Maverick (Americas, 1969-1977), was an instant success that would unexpectedly rival the Ford Mustang. Not to be confused ...

Muscle Car UK’s Baby Driver Film Review

Author Elise  |  11th January 2021

By Niamh Smith When I first walked out of the cinema after seeing Baby Driver, I immediately declared it my new favourite film. The combination of an amazing soundtrack, perfect for an old soul like me, along with engine-revving high-action scenes just made for such a good watch, so much so that I went and saw it a second time on the big screen. Three years on, ...

Auto Express Car Magazine Review

Author Elise  |  8th January 2021

By Jamie Wills Many motoring magazine publishers live under a class delusion. They imagine their readers reside in a Hampshire pile and go to work in a Jaguar F-Type. They foresee city boys buying a 911 Carrera. They appeal to enthusiasts who own a separate garage in which to undertake a five-year Chevy Camero restoration project. Reality for many, of course, is cheaper. Whilst a feature may ...

Pontiac Firebird – Classic Muscle Car Review 2020

Author Elise  |  6th January 2021

By Charlotte Iggulden The mythical Firebird appears in cultures around the world. Slavic folklore tells of a prophetic glowing bird from a distant land; beautiful and dangerous, it is simultaneously a blessing and harbinger of doom to its captor.  Meanwhile, Ancient Greek mythology records a Phoenix, an immortal bird that regenerates from fiery ashes and has come to symbolise renewal. The Pontiac Firebird Trans Am’s decal is arguably ...

Classic Cars Magazine Review 2020

Author Elise  |  11th December 2020

By Niamh Smith I remember dragging my parents to the magazine aisle of Tesco’s when I was a kid, to flick through the Volkswagen magazines. I was THAT kid who took Volksworld into secondary school to read on my lunch break (and I distinctly remember doing a slideshow presentation on my parents 1972 campervan, Dorothy, in year 7).  Thankfully, as I grew up, my taste expanded and ...

Chevrolet Super Sport – Classic Muscle Car Review

Author Elise  |  9th December 2020

By Charlotte Iggulden Super: Latin (preposition and v. prefix) meaning above, beyond, or in addition to an especially high degree; akin to Greek hyper. Before Louis-Joseph Chevrolet (1878-1941) co-founded the eponymous car manufacturing company, he was a mechanic, car designer and race car driver. You would not be wrong in saying performance runs in a Chevy muscle car’s veins.    This is our classic Chevrolet SS review on the ...
