Muscle cars are wonderful things. They inspire fantasies of between-the-lights drag racing, cruising through summer nights and Hollywood car chases. However there are times when manufacturers got muscle cars very, very wrong.

1982 Pontiac Trans Am

This Trans Am might have saw Hollywood glory in Knight Rider, but the baddest one you could get had a wimpy 5.0 V8 that charmed out a measly 165 horsepower. Lame.

1976 Dodge Charger Daytona

A Charger in name only, Chrysler basically slapped some stripes on a Cordoba and called it a day.

1974 Pontiac GTO

The GTO was actually just an option on the Pontiac venture in 1974. Gone were the mighty RAM AIR motors of old, instead replaced by hum drum Chevy 350, making all of 200 horsepower.

1980 Chevrolet Corvette

Ladies and gentlemen, I give you what is possibly the worst Corvette ever made. With only 180 horsepower, it’s not like it was outclassed by the days standards, but miles away from the Corvette Stingrays of old.

1978 AMC Gremlin GT

Yes the Gremlin has lots of charm, but it looks like a foot and the fastest one had a super lame 120 horsepower from a 304 V8. No thanks.

1976 – 1980 Plymouth Volare Road Runner

Another name desecration from Chrysler. The Road Runner moniker was slapped onto a Plymouth Volare in attempt to move more units. The 360 V8 was good for 195 horsepower on a good day.

1978 Ford Mustang King Cobra

The Mustang II was absolutely terrible, but what’s worse is that Ford sullied the great Cobra badge by making this nothing more than a Trans Am wannabe. The best 5.0 V8 offered made all of 140 horsepower. Gross.
