Muscle cars are a touchy topic. While some swear by them, others simply dismiss them as ill-handling heavy vehicles disguised as cars which change direction as easily as getting that horse to drink water.

The striking Mustang logo – and not the blue oval – graces the grille; surely one of the more revered badges.
