Cars in the Park, Chevrolet Muscle Cars, July 2, 2011

Be sure to check out a pretty good compendium about the term muscle car and muscle cars themselves at Wikipedia. Now for the photos of these vehicles whose owners consider them their muscle cars! These are D50 photos.

1962 Chevrolet Corvette, not listed as a muscle car in the article, but who cares? It is gorgeous. For me this paint job has the most beautiful flames I have yet seen.

All about Yenko at Wikipedia.

1971 Chevrolet Chevelle Convertible. The placard on the dash said, "Car was in storage for 20 years. Purchased in 1971 for daughter graduating from school." Great gift!

DSC_0251
The same 1971 Chevrolet Chevelle Convertible--it's an SS which, according to the Wikipedia muscle car article's facts, is an actual muscle car in general, with this particular year showing up on one list as a mid-size muscle model.

1970 Chevrolet El Camino Super Sport, a muscle truck, according to the Wikipedia article. I saw this same vehicle at Cruisin’ Sherwood. Scroll through the other yellow vehicles to find those photos of this gorgeous muscle truck! Since I had just put that post on the blog the day before this car show, I took out my iPhone and showed it to the owner who got a kick out of seeing the photos I had taken in Sherwood. If I remember right, he had the only El Camino at Cars in the Park. (I know, you're thinking, well, Lynette, look at your photos; I didn't take a photo of every single vehicle there, only the ones that hollered, "Lynette!")

See the muscle truck again.

1964 Chevrolet Malibu SS

1969 Chevrolet Camaro--see the SS on the rear of the car. In the Wikipedia article the Camaro is listed as a pony car. Here's a definition of a pony car, n affordable, compact, highly styled car with a sporty or performance-oriented image.

Another logo on the car--the dots are the reflection of the pavement.

No paper in the window, so no facts to share about this Nova. In the Wikipedia article, it says that the 1968-1969 Chevy II Nova SS396 is a muscle car, in fact Car and Driver listed it as one of the 10 best muscle cars in it's January 1990 issue. Does anyone know which year fits this car? I found an advertisement for a 1963 which is certainly what this one resembles.
