Mine has to be the 1970's Air Cooled Beetle. It might not be a muscle car, but I think it's one of the best cars ever made. You might freeze for a while in the winter time until the engine warms up, but you have a rear engine and rwd car. And lets not forget, if this vehicle wasn't made, then Porsche would not exist.

Great thread, Tyler!

Mine would also be the air-cooled Beetle, but I won't limit it to just the 1970's models. Here is the 1974 my dad and I have:

Other than that, I really like the late 50's, early 60's cars as well. I actually had the opportunity to wrench on an original stunt car used in "The Love Bug" this past summer. I also got to ride in it and another original car used in "Herbie Goes To Monte Carlo" and "Herbie Goes Bananas".

The Love Bug car #6 is on the left and Monte Carlo car #12 is on the right:

Riding in car #12 (1962 with a 1776cc engine and rediculous exhaust) This video is like what Don Knotts would have experienced riding in the car in the movie.

Definitely the VW Beetle. The air cooled ones in particular.

It's actually my favorite car. About 90% of my toy and model cars are VW Beetles anyway

I am kinda partial to the Volkswagen Beetles that were done up like Dune Buggies. I am also a fan of the Corrado. It was a pretty quick car for it's time.
