Chevy Chevelle SS – State St, Santa Barbara

March 12th, 2010 by Nick

So Sick. Super Sexy. Sensationally Stylish. Simply Smashing. Sensually Seductive. Sinfully Smooth. Assign what words you will, the SS is worn like a badge of honor on all worthy bowties, and worn with pride. This drop-top Chevelle was sitting pretty in a bank parking lot when I ran across the street to capture its powerful, nonchalant stance. Like the silent man with a double black-belt, leaning calmly against the bar — he doesn’t need to talk about the fact that he can kill you twelve different ways with his hands — but he can. Of course, when your muscle car comes with its own guard dog, who cares what color the belt is.

Father and Son Dodge Challengers – Corona, California

March 10th, 2010 by Stu

You don’t see this everyday – papa Challenger, in all his original glory, alongside the younger, svelter offspring. Harder to believe, the cars are painted in near identical color schemes. But this automotive encounter wasn’t planned, I swear. Our Pal Andy was cruising in his Hemi Orange SRT-8 (left) and caught an eyeful of vintage Mopar staring back at him (right). Driving by without taking a picture is like sticking up a bank and not taking the money. Perhaps the best part, this is not the first time we have spotted such a righteous muscle car pose. Hopefully it won’t be the last.

Thanks Andy! Great find.

Muscle Car Trifecta – Harriman State Park, New York

March 6th, 2010 by Stu

I was going through my files and stumbled onto these amazing pictures taken during a muscle car comparo I wrote for the Summer 2009 issue of Men’s Fitness. The photo editor decided against using these images, instead opting for stock photography to accompany the review. He fed me some line about the gloomy weather not being sunny enough. Does anyone know what he was thinking? We all know that wet muscle cars look better than dry muscle cars any day of the week. They have more attitude. And the grey skies add a menacing effect to the trio’s already aggressive styling. I hope you enjoy them.

Dodge Dart – Puerto Morelos, Mexico

February 19th, 2010 by Stu

This fourth generation Dart 270 coupe was spotted at sundown in Puerto Morelos, a quaint little town and seaport 22 miles south of CancĂșn. Good to see American muscle is alive and well in Mexico. More after the jump.

Chevy Camaro Z28 Type LT – Holt Ave, Los Angeles

January 5th, 2010 by Nick

CAMARO Z28 TYPE LT - HOLT AVE, LAThe dented rear fender from prom night ’77. The cigarette burn from a drunken night at the disco on new years ’80. The scratch down the passenger door from shopping kart bowling on a warm night in ’83. The stories these survivors tell through their scars and battle wounds get silenced during a restoration, and the soft whispers of debauchery fall on deaf ears under a glossy coat of candy.

Ford GT – Staple Street, NYC

November 6th, 2009 by Ian

FordGT2

Unlike marine biologists studying Great White Shark movement and migration, we at ManOnTheMove cannot tag our vehicle subjects for tracking purposes. And owners of fine rides like this Ford GT thoroughly appreciate that. But this particular piece of American exotica looks familiar, like we have spotted it before. We usually don’t like to snap the same ride twice, but exceptions can be made for something as sexy as this.

Ford GT – Avenue of Americas, NYC

June 9th, 2009 by Ian

ford-gtNeck snapping looks aside, exotic vehicle sightings are ultimately special for their infrequency. Ford only made about 4,000 of these thoroughly exotic GT supercars between 2003-2006 so it’s not everyday that we spot one parked on Ave of the Americas.
