The Street Fighters True muscle cars make no apologies. They had one primary job: get the driver from Point A to Point B as fast as law, and the driver's driving ability, would allow. They started off in the early 1960s as mid-size sedans and coupes stuffed with oversized engines - Bel Airs, Catalinas, and Tempests - and it wasn't long before crazy hi-po machines came in all shapes in sizes. Mustangs, Camaros, Chargers, Chevelles, 4-4-2s, Gran Sports ... they all had one thing in common: big engines, and big performance. In Nothin' But Muscle, you'll find 199 of the greatest American performance cars ever built. From the earliest 1964 GTO, to the Shelby-built muscle/racers of the late-a60s, to the ferocious Buicks of the 1980s and 500-plus-hp Viper and Corvette rocketships of today. Nothin' But Muscle brings you the most memorable and beloved pavement eaters ever seen on American soil.An AZF six-speed manual transmission was mated to the engine. This transmission was also offered as optional equipment on 1989 Corvette coupes, but it was mandatory in the ZR1, which did not have an automatic transmission option.
