Car: Plymouth Hemi Roadrunner
What makes it special: The 1969 Plymouth Road Runner Hemi was the quintessential muscle car. Very few high-performance offerings from any competition were as savage as it. Accounting for 35 percent of its midsize car sales, Plymouth didn't tamper much with the winning formula created in 1968. A Convertible joined the hardtop and pillared coupe, the grille and taillights were revised, and the cartoon bird insignia was now in full color. A center console, front buckets, and power windows were added to the options list.
