Throwback Thursday: Top-5 Investment-Grade Chevy Muscle Cars

Once again, another week is already nearing completion. That means Thursday has landed on our doorsteps. Typically, I reserve the Throwback column for technical subjects that can really help you guys with your projects. Let’s face it, we all need a little help now and again when it comes to our cars, and hopefully, this column does that.

This week, however, I decided to take a different route and take a look at an older article that talks about what could possibly be your next project. Back in November of 2013, Bobby Kimbrough put together, Top-5 Investment-Grade Chevy Musclecars You Can Still Afford. The title is self-explanatory, and I wondered if the selections he highlighted are still viable.

I don’t want to make the decision for you. Rather, I want to hear if you think they are still viable options. You’ll have to check out the original article to see what vehicles he chose in order to make your decision. Since he was referring to investment-grade cars, he focused on what were deemed affordable muscle cars that had a reasonable price tag, and would hopefully increase in value at a steady rate like the most desirable collector cars.

The first-gen Monte Carlo was an upscale hot rod.

Like many top-five lists, some simple guidelines were established. First, what was the definition of a muscle car?  Webster’s dictionary defines musclecars as “any of a group of American-made two-door sports coupes with powerful engines designed for high-performance driving.” It goes on to state that musclecars, “have a V-8 engine fitted into a two-door, rear-wheel-drive, family-style mid-size or full-size car designed for four or more passengers. Muscle cars are intended mainly for street use and occasional drag racing.”

Some of his choices might surprise you, and some might not. So, check out Top-5 Investment-Grade Chevy Musclecars You Can Still Afford, and let us know if you think the hot rods chosen are still viable options, and why.
