1976 Pontiac Bonneville Brougham 18,000 orig. miles
1977 Corvette 350 (getting its new interior)
1985 Z-28 400 SBC A/T (new engine going in soon)
1987 Corvette 350 TPI (getting new interior)
1988 Olds 442 (clone) 403 Olds (only one done!)

While it's a year too late to be considered muscle, I have a red '65 Buick Wildcat Conv with a 401 nailhead.

The 10.5 class is sickening when you think about it.
Its going with a new Shannon Jenkins [Fulton] 704 with 4 systems.Should rotate the Earth.
