Do we drive a Sports car? Grand Touring car? Muscle Car?

I'd like to think I have a muscle car. But is it more of a Grand Touring car?

426HP, 6spd manual, and all that but heated leather seats, navigation and sunroof.

What am I/We driving?

This Again? j/k

I still want the T Shirt that has the big picture of the Camaro. And in real big bold letters says "Detroit Muscle." And then under the car, smaller letters, it says "Engineered in Australia, Built in Canada."

It's combined, imo. But I do believe it is considered a "Sports Coupe"...

They are pony cars too... "The term describes an affordable, compact, highly styled car with a sporty or performance-oriented image." Not so sure about compact, since these cars are tanks... But I like substance.

How about exotic Super Car, especially the ZL1 and Z/28. The C5 has some styling cues from the 69 Camaro, but I see a lot of Italian in it, like a super car from the late 60's early 70's.

And here I was thinking I was the only one that had a meteor hit the mobile home and a robot crawled out of the crater, felt bad, and turned into a bad ass car for to make up for destroying my abode.

It's a muscle car. This has been debated several times on this site.

No, they were not.

Chevelles, Road Runners, GTOs, etc. were muscle cars.

Camaros, Firebirds, Mustangs, Challengers, Cudas, and the AMC Javelin were all "Pony" cars.
