Weekend Edition – May 1st Cruise: The Ponies and the Muscle


Now that we’ve gotten the older and the more ostentatious vehicles out of the way, here are some of the more muscular and sporty American cars seen on May 1st. It probably won’t surprise you if I tell you there’s going to be a lot of Mustangs.

The Camaro, with its eyes closed, was a sure thing to stand out. The colour combination is just excellent.


This 1967 GTO displayed a Hurst logo on the rear deck. It looked like it just wanted to pounce off the curb.


I was sure to post a shot of this Mustang over at the Brown Car Appreciation Society. And those are Penta wheels on it, mostly seen on Mercedeses and Volvos. Right next to it: the Alfa Romeo Hot Rod.


This jade green Mustang was my girlfriend’s favorite.






After the classic Mustangs, the Foxbody is such a nice change, right?


I’m not the one to miss a shot of a classic yellow Camaro.


Or this blue one.


And this 6.6-litre Trans Am is a logical way to finish off the bodystyle streak.


This Corvette has been on these pages before. The occupant seemed either suspicious or bored.

    I noticed a lot of American cars but none have American plates on them.
    can anyone tell me where this took place?
    Just curious.

        So much beautiful vintage iron on your side of the country!
        Here in southern Finland a "car guy" is too often considered as an owner of the newest Audi in company parking lot.

          Thanks for the comment! Over here, Volvos are more plentiful… 🙂

    The yellow Camaro is a Type LT, wearing fender vents from a later Gen II Z-28. And that '79 WS6 Trans Am? I almost bought a used one just like it one time, for $6500, but the salesman (ironically a German) made me an insultingly low offer on my '78 Audi Fox. He derisively compared the Fox to the 2-stroke DKWs he remembered from living in Germany.

      Oh, I just noticed the Trans Am says "6.6 LITRE" on the shaker scoop, which means an Olds 403, and not the Pontiac 400, which would say "T/A 6.6". The one I looked at in '81 had the Pontiac 400, along with a 4-speed and 4-wheel discs – a true WS6.

    Those original Mustangs are still one of the classiest all time designs. They never have gotten dated.
