My friend posted up a video on facebook of a Kizashi breaking a new record & I commented that its a Japanese Muscle Car. Then I got verbally attack by a bunch of his friends saying to never use the words Japanese, muscle, & car in the same sentence. What do you guys think of muscle cars? Should we only consider American cars as muscle cars?

Eh, I don't know. Jeremy called the Vauxhall VXR8 a muscle car, and I can't say I disagree.

I guess for Aussie cars because they we use and they use some of the same platforms and what not we have here. Its kind of debatable. I think it really depends on what car were talking about.

The Kizashi is not a Muscle car.

Nissian is rumored to be putting a V8 from mercedes into the new 350Z so that would def. in my opinion be a japanese muscle car.

and plus one on the supra, my boy at work has one that puts down around ~1100hp and does the quarter in 8's.. lets see a camaro/mustang do that
