Knudsen's Pontiac Division probably deserves to be credited with introducing the first bona fide Muscle Car, the mighty and magnificent GTO. Based on the Tempest, the Pontiac GTO was as fast, if nor faster, in a straight line than the Italian stallion whose initials it had cheekily usurped. The motorists of America simply revelled in it combination of style and potency. Soon everyone was in on the act, furiously pumping iron - and a lot of gas. The Oldsmobile 4-4-2 and the Chevrolet Impala Super Sport were followed in '67 by the Camaro. Ford soon added the splendid Shelby Mustangs to its celebrated 'Pony Car' line and Chrysler rounded out the decade with their incredible Dodge Daytona Charger and Plymouth Superbird.
