My first choice for the Best of American Muscle Cars segment is the awesome 1977 Pontiac Trans AM. Nothing says “Ugly American” like this gas guzzling Pontiac. Although slightly outside the range of what purists may consider the true era of Americam Muscle Cars-Pre Early 70’s Arab Oil Embargo, (another reason for hating them…killing off the muscle car era ) it’s my blog and I can do what I want. Nah! Who likes purists anyway? I absolutely love this car. It’s typically American. It’s big, it’s fast, it’s loud and it’s black with a huge screaming chicken on the hood. Best of all its got all the bells and whistles that make driving it just a blast. Unlike some muscle cars that lack the creature comforts, Pontiac figured that we’re Americans and not only do we want to go fast, we want to do it comfortably. And why not? Back then gas was under a buck and Leonard Nimoy was telling us we were all going to die in the upcoming Ice Age. So there wasn’t much else to do except blast around in this true piece of American craftmanship and wait for the end. CaptaindAmerica

We shall go on to the end. We shall fight in France. We shall fight on the seas and oceans. We shall fight with growing confidence and growing strength in the air. We shall defend our Island, whatever the cost may be. We shall fight on the beaches, we shall fight on the landing grounds, we shall fight in the fields and in the streets, we shall fight in the hills; WE SHALL NEVER SURRENDER! -Winston Churchill

Courage isn't the absence of fear. Rather it's the judgment that something else is more important than fear.
