Performance Where You'd Least Expect It
Here are some monster cars that may look like what grandma would drive, including a station wagon.
1994-96 Buick Roadmaster Estate Wagon
We promised you a muscle station wagon, and the Buick Roadmaster is it. Its faux-wood panels and Vista Cruiser roof mask a Corvette LT-1 V8 engine. Churning out 260-hp, the Roadmaster would go 0 to 60 in 7.8 seconds. At 5,000 pounds of vehicle, that is impressive.
1984-85 Ford LTD LX
The LTD LX is a 4-door Mustang. Carrying the same 5-liter V8 and rear-wheel drive, the LTD came in just a bit slower than the Mustang. It went largely unnoticed in the muscle car world because of its mandatory 4-speed automatic transmission, and it went out of production with the release of the Taurus.
2005-08 Pontiac Grand Prix GXP
The predecessor to the G8, the Grand Prix GXP was a V8 sedan that followed Pontiac's traditional formula. Stock your standard, boring sedan with a powerful engine, call it by a different name, and you have a muscle car. At 303-hp, the 5.3-liter small-block V8 would hit 60 mph in 6.7 seconds. Not bad for a front-wheel drive.
1987 Ford Thunderbird Turbo Coupe
Ford's attempt to bring muscle car performance to a 4-cylinder engine, the Thunderbird Turbo Coupe lived up to expectations. It won Motor Trends Car of the Year in 1987 with a turbo-charged 190-hp 2.3-liter engine and 5-speed manual transmission.
1985 Lincoln Mark VII LSC
The Hot Rod Lincoln comeback car boasts a slew of American firsts- onboard trip computer, anti-lock brakes, and composite headlights. The 1985 model included the Ford Mustang's V8 with 165-hp. The Mark VII was the sleekest and best performing Lincoln attempt and performed quite well in the marketplace.
