What Muscle Car Matches Your Personality?

24th Feb 2011

You have one. We all do. So do your favorite muscle cars. But which muscle car personality is a close fit to yours?

Are you shy, reserved, consider yourself willing and able to get from point A to point B in whatever fashion might be the least intrusive?
Are you quiet and unwilling to make a scene, even when you have the right of way? The chances of you and your personality matching that of a muscle car are likely rather slim.

Good news, however is if you are interested in getting into a muscle car of your own, there are plenty of personality types for you to choose from. And it is not unheard of for folks to reshape themselves and use the power and image they get from a souped up, super car as well. First things first. Muscle cars are historically true blue American made automobiles, so while it’s okay if you don't fall into this category, you muscle car personality is going to have to, so break out the Mustang apparel!

The good news is there is plenty of moxie to go around, so you're sure to find the exact match to whom you are or would like to be. Depending upon who you ask, the debate between cars made by Ford and Chevrolet are likely to stir up quite the conversation. Classic muscle cars from Ford include the Mustang, of course, as well as the Thunderbird with or without her top. Of course, you don't need to shed your top in order to identify with a Thunderbird convertible, but should you understand the feeling of daddy taking your T-bird away, this might be the perfect car for you! Generally perceived as a little loud, brash and possibly obnoxious? Well, the Ford Fairlane might be just the car for you.

Of course, if you're hoping to identify more with the leather clad, cigarette smoking standup comedian, be sure you choose the 2 door model and not the 4 door version! Chevrolet has had a string of muscle car success for many years. Back at the very beginning when all the auto magazines referred to them as super cars, Chevy was pumping out a wide variety of cars that fell into this category. Each, with its own personality and appeal, attracted specific types of drivers and those wanting to call them their own. One of the earliest 2 door sports cars from Chevy, their Nova was actually somewhat unassuming, but yet, had the power under its hood to squash its competition right off the starting line. If you like to move through life having others think you're less than you really are a classic Nova might be just the way to blow them away with your true colors.

The Chevy Chevelle really began to flaunt its nose at other cars especially when you combined is power, good looks and forward facing features. Fat racing stripes were a common addition to the Chevelle at a time when most cars simply had one color and were done. Do you feel a bit flamboyant and aren't scared to show it off? You might feel right at home with a Chevelle.

One final personality laden muscle car that would be remiss to leave out is, of course, the Corvette. Even back to the late 1950's when it was released as a 2 door, 2 seater and in convertible format, this slick, fast, and just totally hot muscle car is worthy of only the biggest and boldest personalities in its drivers. Its fiberglass exterior demonstrates that it has a vulnerable side, but that vulnerability is also a light weight shield that allows all those horse power to rip up the competition. Are you raring to go and unwilling to settle for less? You may just be a Corvette and not even realize it.

Whatever your personality type, whichever muscle car you go with, remember always to be safe, and fair to those who are less fortunate; like all of the slow, sub-compact drivers of the world!
