Overkill: Chevrolet Camaro American Pride

The muscle car is a product of the American car industry adhering to the hot rodder’s philosophy of taking a small car and putting a big engine in it. A classic example of the muscle car is the Chevrolet Camaro.

Patriotism is a devotion to one’s country, and the owner of this Camaro is very devoted to his country. The car received a paintjob full of American icons, historical events and military pride. More pictures of this car are available here.

What do you think, is this overkill?

  1. it is funny that the pride of the country is war.

    but cannot deny the many many many many hours of crafstmanship and art gone into this car. absolutely amazing

  2. That is one ugly propaganda machine. lol

    BTW, the American hot rod tradition isn’t about “taking a small car and putting a big engine in it.” Its about taking any car and putting a big engine in it. And that might be the universal definition of “sports car”. Now there is a such thing as the “pony car” which is a smaller sports car of American origin.

  3. Well we in Europe call sports cars a cars that can actualy go around corner without killing you. And some of the best of them have engines not bigger than 2 litres. Your universal definition of “sports car” is just american nonsense.

  4. Well, Wikipedia gives the following definitions:

    – Muscle car: The Merriam-Webster definition is more limiting, “any of a group of American-made 2-door sports coupes with powerful engines designed for high-performance driving.” The term generally refers to 2-door rear wheel drive mid-size cars, and sometimes full-size cars equipped with large, powerful, V8s, and sold at an affordable price for street use and both formal and informal drag racing
    – Pony Car: Pony car is an American class of automobile launched and inspired by the Ford Mustang in 1964.[1][2] The term describes an affordable, compact, highly styled car with a sporty or performance-oriented image.
    – Hot Rod: Hot rods are typically American cars with large engines modified for linear speed. (…) Roadsters were the cars of choice because they were light.
    – Sports Car: A sports car is a small, usually two seat automobile designed for high speed driving and maneuverability. Sports cars have been either spartan or luxurious, but good handling and high performance is requisite.
