34. 1971 Oldsmobile 442 i
The Oldsmobile might not be the most recognizable name in car history but it is rated as the best car by many classic American muscle fans. The number 442 stands for the 4 barrel carburetor, 4-speed gearbox and dual exhaust which made this monster the ace in drag racing for years. Hitting the quarter-mile distance in a mere 14.8 seconds this car churned out an amazing 365 horsepower. This car was so intensely competed in that dealers rarely saw it around let alone buyers. The engineers who worked behind this car were so focused on making it the best drag racing car that sometimes it lacked basic accessories such as heaters, radios etc. Although they can always be fitted in later along with other modifications for the tires and the body. They sell today for in or around the $30,000 figure but when you consider the lack of any technology in the car, this seems like just a basic price with a lot of add-ons for potential buyers!
