“In the sizzling ’60s, rude, crude muscle cars snarled along Mockingbird Lane near the old Charco’s drive-in, burning rubber and spewing raw horsepower.

There is a growing interest in hot-rod muscle cars like the 1968 Chevrolet Camaro on this lift that have been highly modified, but remain more or less true to their roots.

Today some of those rough old outlaws – Chevelle Super Sports, GTOs, Mustangs, Camaros and Road Runners – grace museum floors. Moreover, they’ve become the unlikely new stars of classic car auctions.

As wealthy middle-aged baby boomers hotly pursue a dwindling supply of the vehicles of their youth, muscle car values are going up 25 percent or more a year.”

The article goes on to name the top 5 1960’s muscle cars:
1. 1971 Plymouth Hemi Cuda
2. 1969 ZL-1 Camaro
3. 1970 Chevelle Super Sport LS6
4. 1965 Shelby Mustang GT 350 and 1967 GT 500s
5. 1964 and 1965 Pontiac GTOs
