Iran....and F-bodies?!?!

Check this out:

While checking out Bahman's flawless '76 Camaro, I noticed this weird demographic anomaly: for some reason, 2nd-gen Firebirds and Camaros are disproportionately represented among Iran's top rides. In fact, these 70's muscle cars occupy the top three spots, and there are five Camaros and three Firebirds (along with a Valiant, a Ford Granada, and even a Cadillac) in Iran's top 20. While I realize that the idea of there being even any GM muscle in Iran might strike some as a little odd, the fact that Camaros and Firebirds seem to enjoy a solid following there is nothing short of awesome. Turns out there's a pretty considerable car-culture in Iran, and a lot of it centers around barely-vintage American rides. Check out Iran Trans Am, a Persian Trans Am site run by CarDomain member kamran! I say, build these guys a NASCAR track—there's hope for world peace after all.
It's not a very intricate fact it barely tells you anything, but it's kinda neat to think about....
