10. Pontiac Goat
Without question Pontiac’s GTO is one of the most iconic muscle cars from the glorious 1960s and ‘70s. This midsize two-door featured rear-wheel drive, sporty styling and a roster of muscular V8 engines. You might say it was all that and a satchel of crisps.
The car also had an unusual nickname, well, two to be precise. Arguably the strangest title it earned was Goat, a crude anagram of its three-letter name. It was also called The Great One, a name created, of course, by jumbling its letters.
But today none of this matters. Pontiac’s in the big parking lot above along with Oldsmobile, Pope-Toledo and a bunch of other orphaned brands. The legendary GTO lives on in our hearts and cruise nights at Big Boy restaurants across the country.
