    This is what we are using..

    Modern Muscle (82-present) (includes newer Mustang, Camaro, Charger, Challenger)

    I would also include Vipers, GTO’s and the like

    I’d agree with your class so far. Mustangs, Camaros/Firebirds/Transams, Chargers, and Challengers would all fit. It could also include Monte Carlos and Grand Nationals in the grey area.

    Corvettes definatly can have their own grouping.

    I wouldn’t really consider the GM G-Body vehicles “modern muscle”. Sure they had big names like 442, SS, and Hurst on them, but all those v8 cars put out less than 200 hp stock. The intercooled GNs (86-87) were rated at 245 hp, but they were a 6cyl engine. Even though they can be quick, I still don’t consider them a ‘Modern Muscle’ car.

    IMHO, the Modern Muscle class should be cars 1995-current model year. The mid-late 90s is when the American companies started pushing the hp back up, i.e. The LT1 (300hp), LS1 engines in the ’97 corvettes and 98-02 F body GM cars (325 & 345hp depending on application), The 4.6L 4V Cobra’s from Ford, etc. I would put the GM/Ford cars of the 80s and early 90s in either the stock or modified classes.

    Vipers and Vettes are not muscle cars. They are sports cars or super cars. Two seats.

    Mustangs, camaro, t/a, challengers, Gto = modern muscle cars.

    And even srt-8 chargers, magnums, 300c. Even though they are 4 doors.

    Any front wheel drive car is not a muscle car. Muscle cars are rwd v-8 American performance cars only by definition.

    95 and up would be considered modern day.

    What about 90 and up? I still don’t think of early 90’s as classic. Is there a void between classic and modern (for a certain range of years)?
