According to the sports honks at CBS, the “Road to the Final Four” leads to Atlanta for this year’s NCAA basketball championship game. However, you’ve made it perfectly clear that your pathway to the final four begins and ends in Detroit, MI and is crammed with vintage Chargers, HEMI ‘Cudas, Boss 429s, and Shelby Cobras.

After two rounds of the OnAllCylinders Muscle Car Match-Ups tournament, you have voted these worthy rides to the Final Four:

Final Four Pairings

1969 Mustang Boss 429 vs. 1969 Dodge Charger R/T  69-Boss-429-vs-69-Charger

The Boss 429 was able to get past the 1970 Dodge Challenger in the previous round, but now faces another tough battle against a Mopar: the 1969 Charger R/T. The Charger has proven to be a GM killer in this competition, taking out the ’64 Pontiac GTO and the 1970 Buick GSX. Can it exert its will over the Blue Oval brand, too? Vote and let your voice be heard.

1965 Shelby Cobra 427 vs. 1970 Plymouth HEMI ‘Cuda

65-Shelby-Cobra-vs-70-CudaThere were many who questioned why the 1965 Shelby Cobra was included in the tournament at all. Yet, the polarizing Snake continues to devour its prey, knocking out the powerful 454 Chevelle SS in the last round. Meanwhile, the HEMI ‘Cuda has proven to be lethal for the Ford Fairlane Thunderbolt and “The Judge” in the first two rounds. Now it comes down to the brute power of the HEMI versus the quick-strike potential of the Cobra 427. Vote and make the call.
