muscle car era

The 1971 Dodge Challenger R/T with the legendary factory optional 426 Hemi V8 engine rated at 425 horsepower (that was a lowball factory number, its actual horsepower output numbers were significantly higher as many owners happily found out). One of the true streetbeasts of the American muscle car era. Just one look at that front end and you know this is one mean Detroit Badass! ⚡️

The Chevrolet Camaro’s Horsepower Over the Years

Since its 1967 introduction, the Camaro’s engine output has ranged from a low of 88 horsepower to a peak of 580, as the pony car rode the highs of the muscle car era in the late-1960s and the lows of the oil embargo-influenced 1970s to the emergence of modern technologies in the 1980s and the power and efficiency offered today.

Top five muscle cars

1. 1969 Dodge Charger

To me the Charger is the quintessential American Muscle car.

2. 1969 Ford Mustang BOSS 429

Yeah, yeah, the Mustang is a pony car not a muscle car. I know, but once you drop a fucking 429 big block in a mousetank that lines gets real blurry really fast.

3. 1968 Dodge Dart with a motherfucking HEMI.

It’s a little tiny car (relatively speaking) with a really, really big fucking motor in it. What more do you want?

4. 1963 Ford Galaxy Thunderbolt

Another one that’s not technically a muscle car, since the Muscle Car Era officially started in ‘64 with the introduction of the Pontiac GTO, but you can eat my shorts.

5. Plymouth Roadrunner

The HEMI killer, the everyman’s muscle car, the budget racer for the discerning gentleman. They did everything they could to cut cost without cutting performance. Who needs shit like power steering anyway when you’ve got horsepower?

Can you recommend me any good carmilla fanfic? Please and thank you.

A HSAU where Laura, Perry, Lafontaine, Danny, Kirsch, JP, and Will are in the band and Carmilla, Natalie, Betty, Elsie, and SJ are in orchestra. A bet is involved, hearts get crushed, friendships are made, and new relationships are formed.
+ its sequel:
If you thought high school was a mess than college is a hurricane. 

The one where Kirsch finds out that losing a leg isn’t all bad when your nurse is Danny Lawrence

In November, Carmilla Karnstein turns 25. In November, she becomes the new chairman of Karnstein Industries. In November, Laura will part ways with her. After November, she’d never see Carmilla Karnstein again.

50 Shades of Grey but better & Hollstein

Carmilla is a bounty hunter who decides to pick up and move across the country to be closer to her brother Will, who’s living in a small-town called Silas. Laura is a journalism student who’s just trying to get through her last semester of college while sorting her feelings out for her best friend Danny. One night Laura runs into some serious trouble and Carmilla winds up saving her life and maybe stealing her heart in the process.

Laura’s busy at a business dinner with her dad when she receives a text from a stranger – A very drunk and horny stranger called Carmilla.

Laura owns a lube shop where Laf, Danny and Perry are her employees. Kirsch is a regular customer with an ever breaking down vehicle and Laura’s love for cookies is only rivalled by her love of classic era muscle cars. When a gorgeous 68’ Camaro drives into her shop one day Laura has to get her hands on it. What she doesn’t expect, is the owner of said car being just as jaw dropping.

Perry and LaFontaine want to introduce a new friend to Carmilla, who at first is not very excited about the idea, given the failed attempts the ginger twins they have made with other girls in the past. But this new friend might end up being not as bad as she thought. Or even worse than she could have imagined.

In a world in which slavery is lawful, Carmilla has just turned seventeen, the legal age of an adult, which means that she can now own a slave. Going to the auction house with her mother, she ends up finding a girl that she hopes will be able to fill the void in her heart.

Carmilla has sustained a pretty bad injury, but it’s okay. She has a pretty hot doctor.

Laura’s dating Danny. Carmilla knows that. It doesn’t stop her from wishing, wanting, waiting. And when the opportunity knocks, you let it in, consequences be damned.

Laura walks in on Carmilla’s alone time, which sets off a chain of horrible sinful events. They’re both going to hell.

Carmilla Karnstein is the new history teacher at Silas High. Laura Hollis is the overly enthusiastic senior that is VERY excited to “get to know her”.

Carmilla comes back to town for Will’s stag night. Things turn out a little different than she was expecting.

Carmilla is hanging onto her happiness by guitar strings and sold out concerts. Laura’s in the right place at the right time to maybe help her out and jump start her journalism career.

Laura and Carmilla have always been inseperable, from the time they tried to murder each other in the sandbox to the day they accidentally kissed at a pre-highschool-graduation party. It makes sense that they’d add a few “benefits” to their relationship, especially after they move from their small town to live together in the city. So what happens when Laura goes to college and meets someone new?

Laura’s mother leaves and Laura has to deal with the fact that she’s unwanted. Also known as: Carmilla bright & shiny au.

AU in which Carmilla seeks out Laura’s reincarnations throughout the centuries. Feat. Reincarnated!Laura (in many forms) and a series of murders that draws her to Carmilla for the last time.

Carmilla is a firefighter. That’s basically it.

Carmilla had a girlfriend, a degree from NYU, and dreams of Broadway stardom. Now she’s dumped and praying she can just pay back her student loans and get out of her old high school as fast as possible. But when her old mentor asks for her help directing the spring show, things get complicated. 

or like literally any of drabbles written by marzo2theletter

They see the sirens and move out of the way. Time is important in this line of work and not everyone knows that. Laura has been given a chance to shine a light on the sacrifice of the emergency workers that keep the city safe. When she works with paramedic Carmilla Karnstein on her story, she doesn’t realize just how much they sacrifice or what its like to fall in love with a medic.

Laura Hollis ran out of her wedding. With no place to go, she returns to her home town where things are far from how she left them. After years away, she has to face the reality that she no longer knows where she fits. Her friends have all moved on. Lafontaine and Perry are getting married. Kirsch and Danny have a child. And Carmilla? Well, Carmilla is something else entirely. They were in love, once. Can they fall in love again? Or is their history just too much? (ouch)

The one where Carmilla and Laura go travelling through Europe during summer break. And have sex. A lot.

At 10 years old, Laura made a promise. If neither of them were married in 15 years, they’d get married. 15 years later, and Laura won’t stop getting these texts and calls. Finally, she answers. “So, you married, cupcake?”

Laura and Carmilla have known each other for years, but unfortunately for their friends Lafontaine and Perry, they’ve disliked each other for just as long. A feud as old as it is pointless, Lafontaine and Perry long ago stopped trying to reconcile the two girls. That is until Lafontaine gets the idea of a lifetime. Or maybe it’s just a recipe for disaster…

“Friends with benefits” is a pretty easy concept when you’re barely friends with the other perpetrator in this holy mess, right?

(Hasn’t been updated in forever, but) Carmilla is a photography student at the University of Chicago, Laura is the girl she’s noticed around campus.

there’s so much more i could list but these are just the ones i found first!! hope this is alright!
