muscle car.
i red a book that said the definition of a muscle car is a rwd coupe with 2+2 seating. and a sports car was a 2 seater coupe. but this was speaking on the old days.

what are you describing to you wife that a sports car is? and what is she describing a muscle car as ?

I've always thought of muscle cars as being great for straight line acceleration, but not much for handling the curves. Whereas, a sports car can handle both well, which describes the 5th Gens. I don't know if that fits a dictionary definition, but its why I voted "Sports Car" on the poll.

When reading definitions of both, whether it be the classic or new age versions, or past experiences in both, your statement applies, and is why I voted Sports Car. The 5th Gen combines both realms of performance...

I'm voting Muscle, because V6 & V8's have always been in muscle cars, sports cars don't some of them only have/had inline 4's or smaller
Plus come to think of it, some peoples are saying; coupes are muscle cars & verts are sports cars, I also remember some peoples debating that Men drive muscle cars & Woman drive sports cars, same thing could apply to Manual vs Auto or the Youth vs Seniors .
5th gen, brought up the definition/fact, witch I agree with
