Transmission Repair in a Muscle Car

Transmission repair is part of owning a car, even a high performance car like a muscle car.  First off though, what is a muscle car?  Well according to this Wikipedia article excerpt: Muscle car is a term used to refer to a variety of high-performance automobiles.[1] The Merriam-Webster dictionary defines muscle cars as “any of a group of American-made 2-door sports coupes with powerful engines designed for high-performance driving.” A large V8 engine is fitted in a 2-door, rear wheel drive, family-style mid-size or full-size car designed for four or more passengers. Sold at an affordable price, muscle cars are intended for mainly street use and occasional drag racing.

Wherever your car comes from, it will need to have transmission repair done, preferably in advance of any problems.

Why Would a Muscle Car Need Transmission Repair?

The reason lies in the term “high performance,” as you expect a lot more out of your muscle car than someone who just drives his car to the office every day and church on Sunday.  The last thing you want is your clutch to pop while you’re driving or experience transmission slipping.  Street drag racing is illegal in most parts of the country, however, there are places even in Arizona where you can legally race.   If nothing else, the mental picture of your car’s engine roaring should make your morning commute enjoyable.

Keep up your car proactively so it can stay high performance, and not be a clunker. Change your oil and your tires periodically, and check your belts and hoses.  Above all else, get transmission repair done as soon as you can.
