Muscle Cars: America's Greatest Love Affair

Real American Heavy Metal

Since the invention of the automobile American has maintained and happy and obsessive love affair with cars. When sports cars came to life the affair intensified creating an overwhelming need to make them better, stronger, and faster. The introduction of fast cars solidified in America’s great love affair with American Heavy Metal.

The Corvette, the Mustang, and the GTO made hearts race, palms sweat, and successfully turned a large portion of the population into adrenaline junkies. The vibration of the engine sending shivers down the driver’s spine. The colors like cherry red, marina blue, and sunfire yellow that just screamed fast even when these machines were standing still. The feel of the shift as the engine gained speed. The slight G-force gained as the cars hugged the road while taking turns handling like the vehicle was on rails. These are the things that fuel our love for interactive vehicular machinery.

Driving a muscle car is an experience like no other. There is no room for fear only the rush of pushing limits. You are sitting behind the wheel listening to the sound of the engine; applying pressure to the gas pedal and feeling the car move. Reaching that back road, you know the one. As you come into the stretch you accelerate to achieve a much power as you can. The well tuned engine vibrating everything around you. The only sounds you hear are the car and the road. As you take the corners you feel the pressure, you brain says “slow down” but your foot just gives her a little more gas as you come out of the turn. The car grips the road like a lover’s hand gliding across you leg. You feel your heart beat a little faster and you like the feeling. The vehicle obeys your every command seducing you even further into its exotic haze. You go willing and find that you will be forever at your first love’s beck and call. That is what it’s like to drive a true muscle car.
