    Default What do you think?

    Would a 1959 El Camino with a 454 be considered a "muscle car" or just a "hot rod"?

    Probably a hot rod, I don't think the muscle car era started for about couple more years. One thing is for sure, it would an El Camino with muscle!

    I would say a hot rod. At any rate, a '59 Elky would be rare.

    I agree 100% with this statement.
    If winning was easy, then the losers would be winners.

    Well buddy I have one, with a 454 no less. It's not perfect, but it's mine.

    I think that after the last couple weeks, just about every generation of El Camino is now on this site. Too cool....

    I would say it is a "hotrod". It is my recollection that the 64 goat was the first to become a"muscle car. Quickly followed by the 65 "a" body lineup in chev, olds, opontiac, buicks and the big block mopars.
