My vote goes for the 1979 Olds 442. You gotta hate the ugly fastback and the totally wimpy 260.

I really didn't care to much for the last of the old GTO's in the mid seventies or the 71 and later Javelins , but this is just my opinion.

I had a buddy in high school that had a mustang 2, I thought that it was really ugly...

we have to establish what is a muscle car. I would not say that the mustang 2 or any car after 1974 meets the bill. You could argue about the Trans Am, but as a guide I dont believe in anything after the demise of the E-body mopars. 1972 could really be called the end of the line.

With those criteria in effect, I must say the Buick Riviera with that body style that could not tell its front from its back. Butt ugly!

I would have to say, any of those early 60s Mopars......

Of course, now, they are so collectible, even if they were ugly.

I never really liked the Gremlin (sorry HG, just looks to much like the pacer) or the Hornet.

I do like the Javelin and the AMX though :D

I guess that "muscle car" was not an appropriate term to use. I think that perhaps the proper thing would be to say any car. My original intent was that the 442 started out as a muscle car but really got watered down until it's worst year 1979.

That being said, I really don't care for the 69 cuda (sorry to Mopar guys), I just didn't care for the fast back...

Dude that car doesn't deserve to be called a muscle car.

71-72 Charger R/T gets my vote.

73-later Chargers are to slow to be allowed in the category.

Any Pre 70 Torino was ugly
Pre 68 Chargers were ugly
early barracudas were ugly (the first ones blech!)

And it took a long time for me to warm up to my chevelle and I still think it looks bad from certain angles. It isn't a 70 thats for sure.
