The Birth, Death and Resurrection of the American Muscle Car

When it comes to muscle car action, it doesn’t get much more iconic than Steve McQueen as Bullitt in a 1968 Ford Mustang GT 390 CID Fastback chasing two hit-men in a 1968 Dodge Charger R/T 440 Magnum. From the guttural roar of the engines as experienced from inside the cars to the jaw-jarring seesaw of suspension up and over the hills of San Francisco, the chase encapsulates the muscle car experience – and it’s fast, mean and dirty.

The Roadrunner – BEEP BEEP

Fast and Furious 4 – Trailer Fast & Furious 4 features a 1970 Plymouth Roadrunner called Hammer. The Roadrunner features in my YA novel Autodrome. This is my favourite muscle car of all time.
