CNN has published a list of the "Top 10 Muscle cars" - the fastest-rising muscle cars in terms of auction values. The list includes many cars that are rare and valuable today because, when they were new, nobody wanted them. The list was compiled by Phil Skinner, collector car market editor at Kelley Blue Book.

Of the top 10, four are convertibles with big race-tuned engines. Two others cars on the list are "homologation specials," created specifically to qualify a model for the stock-car racing circuit.

  • 1971 Plymouth "Hemi" ’Cuda convertible.
  • 1969 Dodge Charger R/T-440 hardtop.
  • 1969 Chevrolet Camaro Z-28/SS coupe.
  • 1970 Chevrolet Chevelle SS-454/LS-6 convertible
  • 1964 Shelby Cobra 289 roadster
  • 1968 Shelby GT-500-KR convertible.
  • 1970 Plymouth Superbird-440 hardtop
  • 1969 Ford Torino-Talladega hardtop
  • 1969 Pontiac GTO "Judge" convertible
  • 1970 Oldsmobile 442/W-30 hardtop
