Who cares what it's "called?" What difference does it make??

A muscle car is an automobile with a high horse power engine, modest weight, capable of producing high levels of acceleration.[1] The term principally refers to American, Australian and South African models and generally describes a 2-door rear wheel drive mid-size car with a large, powerful V8 engine and special trim, intended for maximum torque on the street or in drag racing competition. It is distinguished from sports cars, which were customarily considered smaller, two-seat cars, or GTs, two-seat or 2+2 cars intended for high-speed touring and possibly road racing.WIKI
So lets see..

2 doors: Last I checked, still no 4 door Camaro's

midsize: Bigger than an Aveo smaller than an Impala

rear-wheel drive: Pretty sure the back wheels are the one peeling rubber when I activate pro-racer mode

big V8: LS3 367cc 426 HP

Any questions?

That would be cubic inches not centimeters otherwise they really get a lot of horsepower out of a smaller engine than my motorcycle.

Muscle car is basically stuffing the biggest most powerful engine into the lightest possible shell. I read once that a 9:1 or better HP to weight ratio is a muscle car. But thats a 60's explanation. My old STi had a 8.7:1 hp/weight ratio. So technically it is a muscle car too?

Definitely a Muscle Car.

From Wikipedia....

Muscle car
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

This 1966 Pontiac GTO is an example of classic muscle.

Muscle car is a term used to refer to a variety of high performance automobiles. At its most widely accepted the term refers to American 2-door rear wheel drive mid-size cars of the late 1960s and early 1970s equipped with large, powerful V8s and sold at an affordable price for street use and drag racing, formally and informally. As such, they are distinct from two-seat sports cars and expensive 2+2 GTs intended for high-speed touring and road racing.

Well, lets see.

Sport cars are considered 2 seaters so it is not a sports car.
Rice burners are considered foriegn turbo-charged 4 cylinders, so not a Rice Burner.
Luxury sedan's are not known to have power, so not a Luxury Sedan.
Has no bed that I have seen, so can't be a Truck
Doesn't seat 7+ passangers so not a SUV or Van
Bigger than a toaster, so can't be a compact.

So if it's not any of the above, the only thing left would be.......MUSCLE CAR

Can't argue with logic. One point me! I win!!
