The Mighty Plymouth GTX

Tuesday, October 2nd, 2012
The shapely new intermediate Plymouth was the basis for the GTX and the new Road Runner, part of Plymouth's "Rapid Transit System." While the GTX combined 440 and Hemi power with a classy interior, the Road Runner reinvented the muscle car with a lightweight, bare-bones car with 383 Magnum, 440, or Hemi engines and catchy graphics. During the 1968-69 seasons, Plymouths struggled to keep up with the sleek Ford Torino and...

The C-1 Corvette

Tuesday, October 4th, 2011
In the early 1950s, GM wanted a sports car to compete with Europe's offerings. Chevrolet's response was the Corvette—Harley Earl's cross between Italian and American dream car styles, executed with a fiberglass body. But after GM's planners got their hands on the car, the result was more boulevard cruiser than racing stallion. The early (1953-1955) Corvettes suffered at the dealerships from the weak 150 hp Blue...

Keith Martin's Sports Car Market has chosen the 1969 Pontiac GTO of Glen Hull as the Chubb Collector Car Insurance Car of the Week. Pontiac’s GTO is generally credited as the first muscle car, and thanks to the GTO’s formula, stuffing a full-size car’s engine under a mid-size car’s hood became the thing to do in the mid to late ’60s American market. Glen proudly states that nothing is original on this car....
