    I’ve owned a ’70 GTO Judge. Great car. Also I have had a ’68 Camaro and a ’70 Chevelle big block, both great cars. I think I’ll have to go with the 69 Boss for style and sheer power. By the way, my favorites are the ’68, ’69 and ’70 Hurst Olds and 442, sw-30 and 31.

    429 my grandfather had a cobra jet in his 70 model f100 pickup and I never seen one car or truck that could take it on a long or short road ( I wish I had that old truck ) and I love my fords Mustang has to be my pick here. But the Pantera was sick and I have always wanted one

  • michelle Logsdon 6 years ago

  • Aaron Ripperger 6 years ago

    The GTO is the first and best muscle car. Camaro ,Chevelle and charger are good but the Mustang is a pos. Fords suck and always will. The Mustang is made for girls or girly guy’s

  • Tommy 7 years ago

    1969 Charger is great, it appear in Fast and Furious 🙂

    easy trick question their all the badest and best…………………..

  • Trevor 7 years ago

    the Mustang makes the best Muscle car. say the word Mustang, it sounds Masculine. You say Camaro, challenger or charger.. they don’t as much. I am not saying this because I am bias.. I am saying it because it is true. Now I’ll probably get people commenting with bias statements but it was worth it.

    The Boss 429 was a great looking car, but you had to do some work on them to get them to run great. I own a 1970 Boss 302 and bought it in 1971 from my brother, and it turns 10.08 in “B” Stock Class, so if you want a Boss to run, get rid of the Fomoco parts and buy TRW or name brand that can take high rpm’s and heat. That is what I did to my car and it still runs consistently after 43 years. The moral is: When you buy a new car, you either get a LEMON, or you get a great-running car. I was lucky to get the 2nd option. My wife says I love The Boss more than I do her!
    I simply continued where Ian left off, only saying that with the right parts, the Boss 429 is a good motor. But not as good as the high-revving Boss 302!

  • Cassandra Heddy 7 years ago

    The Charger….if it was like mine 😉

  • Joseph Drew 7 years ago

    The Boss is King.

  • Mark Mcgill 7 years ago

    I love the 69 camaro z28. I has always been my favorite. But i think the charger has more potential for the most horsepower

  • Dave Gardner 7 years ago

    The Boss 429 Mustang, Big Daddy lost control of one on the strip, in 69.

  • Russell Henderson 7 years ago

    The BOSS 429 obviously…

  • Francis Steele 7 years ago

    I like GTO’S , then the Boss 429 then the Charger then the Camaro etc.

  • Meistermon 7 years ago

    Silver ’67 GTO (not pictured)

  • Ron Taylor 7 years ago

    i had a 440magnum 0 to 70 4.5 sec so the charger is the fastest for me

  • Ron Taylor 7 years ago

    the 1969 charger

  • Scott Thackerson 7 years ago

    Boss 429

  • Jonathan Knowles 7 years ago

    I’d take any one of them,but if I had to pick one I’d have to pick the Mustang.

  • Lucille Marable-Clayton 7 years ago

    The Mustang Boss will always be my favorite. The remainder are tied for 2nd place.

  • Chris Smith 7 years ago

    The 1969 Camaro….Z28 for the track…ZL1 for the strip.

  • george clarke 7 years ago

    the best Muscle car wasn’t pictured it would be the 69 Chevelle SS .

  • Ian Norburg 7 years ago

    The Boss 429 Mustang is a prime example of a blown opportunity. The initial run had a relatively mild cam with hydraulic lifters and NASCAR style connecting rods that really kept it from being a drag strip contender. These were rectified half way through the the year, but there was one thing that wasn’t corrected and that was the hoodscoop. As good as that scoop looked it was pretty inefficient and didn’t get enough air to the carb. Unfortunately NASCAR Super Stock rules wouldn’t allow for modifications to the scoop. Now had they put a 427 side oiler in that puppy with a better scoop it would be a different story.

  • Jay Sperry 7 years ago

    Mustang all day long.

  • Dean Siehr 7 years ago

    Boss wins, hands down!

  • Don Loughridge 7 years ago

    If you’re running at 7000 rpm for hours at a time, then the Boss 429 is the ticket. If you’re flying through the twisties and/or trying to pick up the babes, then the ’69 Z/28 (looks exactly like mine) is the way to go. Goat is nice, but weighs a lot (if it was made in Canada then it has a Chevrolet 427 or 454 under the hood). Charger could have a 225 Slant Six or a 318 under the hood, Muscle Car? Puleeze!

  • Jim Marshall 7 years ago

    I have a tie. One is not on the list but I’ll list it anyhow. The 69 Boss 429 and a 70 Olds 442 W30.

  • Mark Slack 7 years ago

  • NativeNE 7 years ago

    ’68 is my favorite, but you are missing the ’70 Dodge Challenger, which is what we have in the garage. And, it is a convertible.

  • Fast Freddy Suess 7 years ago

    The 429 Boss is the BOSS!!!

  • Scott Cox 7 years ago

    The Boss is mine!

  • Chi Edwards 7 years ago

    My husband would say the Charger! But me I Love the GTO!!!!! <3

  • Dean Cook 7 years ago

    Out of these? Well, the deck is kind of stacked in favor of the ’69 BOSS 429. But, put a Plymouth HEMI ‘Cuda or SuperBird into this mix and I think you would find your outcome would be far different…

  • randy 7 years ago

    big engine or not mustangs are slow. allways have been even with twice the money. bet the camero would smoke it, chevelle needed to be done differently but is my choice!

  • Ralph Anderson 7 years ago


  • David Southerland 7 years ago

    1969 BOSS 429! But if there was a 1971 HEMI Cuda’ up there,I’d have to go with that first!

  • chris 7 years ago
