If you have a piece of American muscle and want to show it off at the Pageant of Power, simply upload a pic of your car with the details at the bottom and then get voting. Simple as that.
The chosen lot will be given four complimentary day tickets for the event and the drivers will also be invited to the racing club for breakfast, lunch and afternoon tea courtesy of the Marquess of Cholmondeley.
Voting will close on 15th May.

I'd like to give it a go!

Chevrolet C6 Corvette
I have a Borla straight through. I won't be setting the best sprint time, but I will provide some lovely V8 American ambience for the crowd!

Well I've already driven it most of the way around the world; Cholmondeley would certainly make a fine homecoming adventure for the 'V8Nam 'Vette'- after all, it's earned it!

Name: Fivetenben
Model: Corvette C4 with a few minor war wounds, a ZR1 exhaust and some other choice mods...
Why? Well, its recent UK-Singapore drive makes it probably the most well-travelled Corvette on the planet, and hence a piece of Chevrolet history. It's fast, garish, sounds a bit like a warzone, is totally unique and perfectly encapsulates the glorious tangents of logic which makes Pistonheads so fascinating...

American muscle cars are one thing. Cars with American muscle are another. IMHO all the best looking of the latter are styled in Italy. And arguably made in West Bromwich. And of those the best of the best is the Jensen FF Mk II. It has a 383 under the bonnet. Is it the only four wheel drive American V8 powered street car? It would look pretty spectacular on the parade, and if it is a rainy day will probably get along respectably briskly too? Mine was the factory showcar for mag slots. There is nothing else quite like it. Vote for Elvis. Seb.

Bit last minute entry, but I'm having to post these for a good friend who is currently over in America on holiday, but he wants to apply for consideration for the CPOP.

Double muscle:



Dodge Viper GTS
V10 8 litre
Sounds every bit as good as it looks, and is a true American legend.






Dodge Ram truck
NOTE: the sheriff decals were for a charity run and have now been removed, so it now beautifully "matches" the Viper in silver with Blue viper stripes front to back.





The pair of cars show both extremes of American muscle and are both owned by User name: Phoenix Viper or you can contact me, as I'm sure he can't drive both of them round and I'll kindly help him out. wink
