By the time the 70’s came to a close, Chevrolet and Ford (as well as some other enthusiastic parties) had plenty of vehicles to carry the muscle car moniker.. Mustang, Firebird, Camaro, Nova, Chevelle... the roster list was pretty substantial. Even Dodge had quite a few participants in the horsepower war with the Charger, Coronet, Dart, and Barracuda. 1970 was a tough year to start a legacy, but that didn’t stop the newcomer from leaving a powerful mark on the industry.
