What makes a muscle car a muscle car? In the simplest of terms, a machine defined by its cubic capacity. Okay, so it’s a bit more complicated than that. But beyond the big power, aggressive styling and 8 cylinders of Detroit fury, a muscle car is the automobile at its most fun. To many collectors, Barrett-Jackson is the proverbial home of the muscle car, and some of the finest and most legendary examples have made the journey across the block. The inaugural Houston Auction was no different – plenty of powerful machines from all makes and models starred on the block in Texas. Check out the gallery below of the 10 best-selling muscle cars from Barrett-Jackson’s debut in the Lone Star State.
