Things seem to have new and different meanings today, than during the sixties and seventies.

Good question. I picked this topic because I know very little about true muscle cars, I wanted to pick something I don't normally draw and something I can learn about. I read on Wikipedia that it has to be an American made car, mid-size with a back seat and a good amount of horsepower. I guess it could be a fuzzy line between what is a muscle car and what isn't. Wikipedia also says that the Camero (which I consider a muscle car) is a pony car and the Chevell SS is the muscle car. I don't think it necessarily needs to have a big block. I would say it can be as modified as you want... this is art. Dream Big! ;-) I would say draw what you think is a Muscle Car.... unless it is a 1970 Pacer!
