Default Overlooked Muscle Cars

Post muscle cars that have been overlooked.

I think the AMC Javelin was overlooked.

It all depends on your definition of "good". Whoever owns that Javelin must thing it's a great collector car otherwise it wouldn't be in such great condition. In fact cars in general are put to a matter of opinion when talking about collectability, drivability, and overall contruction.

Personally, I like the look of the Javelin. It looks like a cross between a DeLorian and an Camaro SS.

Small block V8(If I owned one, it'd be an 8K capable 289 Ford), manual transmission, mid engine rear drive. Absolute DREAM to drive, and my god do they sound delicious.

Very easy to work on, too. Google image them, you'll find plenty of engine shots. There is absolutely NOTHING anywhere near that thing. You could probably rebuild the friggin' engine with it in the car!

1985 Ford F150 | 4x2 | 300ci OHV inline six | 4-speed OD manual | 310K | No power brakes | Running 100% - It hasn't driven this good in 15 years!

1984 Ford F150 | 4x2 | 300ci six | granny four | 3.55 rear end | 210K | Brakes shot. Rear drums are doing most of the work. Not fit to drive due to that.
1997 Ford Explorer XLT | 4.0L Vulcan V6 | 5-speed automatic | shift-on-the-fly 4WD | 210,000 miles | Running 95% - Needs brakes on all four corners + bald tires
1989 Ford F150 | 300cid six...again | 5-speed | 4x4 | 160K | Needs brakes done as well. Oi!
