Eighty-three is­sues – and count­ing – of Aus­tralian Mus­cle Car mag­a­zine is tes­ta­ment to this coun­try’s rich her­itage of home­grown high per­for­mance. Three is­sues ago we pro­vided an in­tro­duc­tory guide to the top 25 clas­sic Amer­i­can mus­cle cars. We thought it was an ap­pro­pri­ate way to kick off our ‘Top 25’ sec­tion given that the United States, as the birthplace of the mus­cle car, has had such an in­flu­ence on our own scene. This time we’re stay­ing right at home with a list, in chrono­log­i­cal or­der, of the most de­sir­able Aus­tralian-built per­for­mance cars of the clas­sic mus­cle car pe­riod – 1967 to 1978. It’s a mix of cars from the big three: 10 each from Ford and Holden, plus five from Chrysler. In each case we at­tempt to sum up why each model is de­sir­able – and it’s not purely about 0-100km/h and Bathurst re­sults.

We’ve capped our list to cars any­one could have walked into a dealer’s show­room and bought if they had the cash, in­cli­na­tion and, in many cases, were quick enough off the mark. Have

your say and you could win one of five DVD copies of Mad Max: Fury Road, cour­tesy of Road­show En­ter­tain­ment. MM:FR is avail­able from Septem­ber 2 on DVD and Blu-ray. We’re of­fer­ing a copy for the best an­swer to each of the fol­low­ing five ques­tions: A) What clas­sic Aussie mus­cle car (1967-1978) not in our top 25 list should have been in­cluded and why? B) What clas­sic Aussie mus­cle car (1967-1978) in our top 25 list didn’t de­serve to be in­cluded and why? C) What was your favourite story pub­lished in AMC in 2015 and why? D) What story not pre­vi­ously pub­lished in AMC would you like to see in these pages and why? E) What Aussie clas­sic should be in­cluded in the next Mad Max movie and why? HOW TO EN­TER: For your chance to win, an­swer the above ques­tions in 25 words or less and send your re­sponse to am­ced­i­to­rial@chevron.com.au be­fore 31/10/15.
