The first muscle car of that generation, but the first muscle car was the 1949 Oldsmobile Rocket 88.

I like the one they picked for 1966, but I would have rather seen a 66 427 Vette.

1966 should have been the Oldsmobile Tornado. It changed the entire automotive landscape.

Not that I was born in 1963, but how do you not pick a SWC 327 fuelie?

1980 is an American Eagle...wow, too bad you didn't realize Ferrari was selling a 288 GTO Twin Turbo that year.

List is garbage /rant.

The list is of the historically most significant cars of each year. While many seem to be incorrect, it's not about the best cars of each year.
Also, I think the Ferrari 288 GTO began production in 1983.

Sounds like 81 got the most significant car of all time, the Delorean.

The Prius is also on the list twice.

My comment stands, there are a ton of very insignificant cars on that list.

I don't disagree with that point.

Good point, forgot about that one. Prbly because I was born in '54 so that's the first thing that came to mind.
