Any discussion about American muscle cars starts and end with these three models: the 2015 Ford Mustang, the 2014 Chevrolet Camao Z/28, and the 2015 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat. Any other mention of any other car is irrelevant. These three objects of mayhem are the pinnacle of American muscle.

Each model does come with its own set of pros and cons. We’re not going to single handedly pinpoint each of the things the three muscle cars are good and bad at. For that, we turn your attention to this episode created by Automobile Magazine, featuring editor-at-large Arthur St. Antoine, contributing writers Jason Harper and Marc Noordeloos, and of course, the three muscle cars that are largely credited for bringing a lot of attention back to the American pony car market.

The objective of the episode isn’t about finding out which one is the best among the three. Instead. St. Antoine, Harper, and Noordeloos, each spent some time talking about their respective rides and what makes them worth your money. Each one makes a case about the Challenger SRT Hellcat’s power, the Mustang’s versatility, or the Camaro Z/28’s track ferocity. But at the end of the day, all three cars are awesome in their own right, they were created with the purpose of thrilling their owners with an unyielding combination of power and noise like the true muscle cars that they are.

Kirby’s first exposure into the world of automobiles happened when he caught Knight Rider on television as a five-year old boy. David Hasselhoff didn’t leave much of an impression on him (that happened later on in Baywatch), but KITT certainly did. To this day, Kirby remains convinced that he will one day own a car with the same ‘spirit’ as the original KITT (not the 2008 monstrosity). He doesn't know when that will be, but until then, he’s committed to expressing his love for KITT, and all cars for that matter, here at TopSpeed.  Read More
