9. 1964-1967 Pontiac Tempest
If big muscle cars are your type of thrill, then your records should read that the mighty GTO drew its inspiration from the Pontiac’s midsize Tempest. Even though the machine’s standard offering was an inline-six with 140 horsepower (different engines were also available), you could also go for the 326 cubic inch V8 which offered 285 horsepower. The GTO beat it by about 75 horses and with some slight tuning and an almost-similar resemblance to the Pontiac muscle car, the Tempest could do speed wonders.
