Iconic Muscle Cars - American History

By GaugeMagazine
Posted 08-01-2016

Iconic muscle cars of America are the ultimate expression of asphalt fantasies. Germany might go for extreme engineering while Italy goes for design elements. But for the American muscle car manufacturer, raw power is what matters (or at least it did in the past). To provide an overview of the most iconic American muscle cars that have left a solid tire track record behind, we have compiled this list for your convenience.

1. AMC Javelin

The first generation of the AMC Javelin models appeared in 1968 as two-door rides. They won several titles in the 70s, with the second generation known as the AMX being the first pony car to be used in highway patrols. You’d probably picture the cop and bad driver movies, except for some real prison time or a ticket charge as a reward.

It's with this same single-minded focus that the team at Forgeline has decided to build their own pro-touring style 1970 Camaro.

"We're a long-time supporter of this segment of the performance aftermarket and have been the wheel of choice for many of the builders and the cars that have made these pro touring events so popular. But now, this year, it's our turn to participate."

 
A quick tour of the paddock at any pro touring event is literally a rolling catalog of Forgeline's expertise in fabricating custom wheels that can stand up to the rigors of autocross, speed/stop and timed lap competitions, all while looking like forged and machined aluminum works of art. So it really should be no surprise that Forgeline Motorsports' '70 Camaro will be constructed using components from top-of-their segment manufacturers.
 
The foundation of any pro-touring machine is the suspension. For the Forgeline '70 Camaro, a Detroit Speed hydroformed subframe along with tubular upper an

When discussing America’s historic gangsters and mobsters, the first topic that readily comes to mind is their choice of guns - naturally, it doesn’t get much more iconic than the popular Tommy Gun.
