Right now, classic muscle cars are extremely expensive and the muscle car boom is getting hotter than ever. But some classic cars aren’t worth a dime. The 1970s were an especially tough time for the muscle car industry because of all of the new EPA smog regulations.
A lot of these cars are still exorbitant in price, but if a driver looks closely, the actual quality and value just aren’t there. Like with most financial bubbles, the current muscle car boom is pushing a lot of these cars well out of the fair pricing realm. Read on as we take a look at 20 classic muscle cars that aren’t worth a dime.
20: Chevrolet Camaro (1970-1981)
The ’70s were a tough time for the Camaro. The classic muscle car went from being a pony car to a watered-down slab. The new emissions regulations crippling the automotive industry sucked nearly every bit of power from the Camaro. The high price tags currently accompanying this generation of the Camaro are vastly overvalued.
The second-generation Camaro, as it’s known, is not a bad car by any stretch. But when you think about how limited one of these Camaros is, the high price tag just isn’t worth it. There are much better Camaros from other generations of the make that have far more power to offer.
