Traditionally Muscle Car Review has covered cars built between the mid 1960s and the early 1970s, but for this issue we’re breaking the mold and taking a look at some of the hot cars that came out of Detroit during the 1980s. Readers have been asking for prime examples of newer muscle, and this month we deliver.
Our cover car is the stuff of legend among Buick collectors, the final GNX built in 1987, No. 547. This car has achieved mythic status because it disappeared almost immediately after being sold and has been seen so seldom since that there are some who question its very existence. We have it, and we’re sharing its unusual story.
Also in the cover section is a feature on the hot Camaros that bookended the decade: a 1980 Z28 and a 1989 IROC-Z. And we have a look at what we think are the 12 most collectible muscle cars from the decade.
Elsewhere in the issue you’ll find stories on a very rare-and gorgeous-1970 Olds 4-4-2 W-30 that once was a basket case; a tribute to Shirley Shahan’s SS/AMX drag car; the inside story behind the Hurst Hairy Olds, one of the wildest exhibition dragsters ever built; a look at the muscle cars of the 2016 SEMA Show; and a buildup and dyno test of a 428 Cobra Jet engine.
All this and more can be found in the Feb. 2017 issue of Muscle Car Review, on sale Jan. 13.
