Superhero Muscle Cars

Jay-Z and Linkin Park. Chicken and Waffles. Each of these things are fine separately, but for some reason people feel the need to combine them. While some people swear they go better together, the rest of us wrinkle our brows in disgust at the idea.

Such is the case with superheros and muscle cars. I think they’re fine separately, but definitely not better together. My opinion is that the end result is not twice as good, but only half as good as it could be.

To give you a better idea of what I am talking about, let’s take a look at some examples. Exhibit A is a fifth-generation Ford Mustang that has been built by Roush Performance. The car exhibits the trademark Roush wheels, bumper, and supercharged V8 engine. This is a fine vehicle that any muscle car enthusiast would be proud to own.

For some reason, the owner felt the need to plaster Batman emblems on the front grille. I feel that the cartoon logos on this car distract from the seriously awesome nature of this high-performance vehicle.

2003 Toyota Tundra Terminator 3 Edition

I didn’t think this was real at first- Wikipedia doesn’t even mention it in their entry for the Tundra, but after some digging around I did find a couple facts about this truck.

Most sources I’ve found say that 850 “T3” Tundras were produced, with 250 going to Canada and the other 600 being sold here. Supposedly, they were only officially offered in black although I did find a guy on a forum swearing he has a factory green one. The truck is pretty much a normal Tundra except it’s got special wheels, all the chrome and aluminum (except for the special wheels) is black, it comes with factory dual exhaust (which actually sounded pretty good), its got some special leather seats and that’s pretty much it. It’s nothing really nothing all that special, other than it’s limited production. I don’t see why Toyota didn’t do it right an at least offer that supercharger they are so proud of as an option or something. It wouldn’t be a bad looking truck if it just didn’t any of those decals on it. Ok, let me rephrase that: compared to the new Tundra, It wouldn’t be a bad looking truck without the decals. There, I’m glad I cleared that up.
