This year’s edition of Muscle Car Match-Ups pitted old school rides vs. new school rides.
After the first-round match-ups where one classic faced off against the best modern muscle cars on the planet, half of the MCMU field was eliminated, and 100-percent of those left standing were classics.
RIP, modern muscle.
Everyone knows modern performance machines are second to none on the track. But in an online popularity contest decided by votes, the classics figured to fare well. And understatement, as it were.
So, in memoriam of our fallen new-school rides, we honor them with a gallery of reader rides submitted on Summit Racing’s Facebook page.
