You wanna know which is the fastest musclecar of all time? When the bench racing reaches wide-open throttle, you want—you need—the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth. That’s where Musclecar Review magazine comes in.

Since 1984, we’ve kept a running list of the fastest musclecars of all time. The list has undergone periodic revision when a faster car comes along or when a reader alerts us to road tests we didn’t know about. Until now, we’ve included late-model musclecars in the list, letting them take their place among our ’60s legends. But enough readers wrote to protest their inclusion, so we’re omitting them this time and reserving our Top 10 for vintage iron only.

So strap yourself in for a quick spin through the Top 10 fastest musclecars of all time.
