Muscle cars have a reputation for being raw, crude, basic machines with big wings and orange stripy paint, designed for leaving black skid marks at the exit of the drive-in or on a country two lane road. But there are some that take a more suit and tie approach. Take one of the earlier muscle cars, the Chrysler 300B. The 355hp 300B, and in fact all of the 300s of the 50s, featured massive, powerful Hemi engines that made them a force to be reckoned with both on the road and on the track. Yet they were still classy, understated luxury cars, or overstated in the case of the later models. Loud and brash is all very well and good, but what would be your first choice if you had to show up at a cocktail party one day and a drag race the next?
