"Muscle Car" is a term saved for cars from the 60s and early 70's- they had lavish amounts of brutal horsepower, couldn't stop or corner, but could gather speeding tickets like bankers gather money- your Monte is just another pretender trying to cash in on past glories-

The 3.8 V6 in the 2003 Monte Carlo puts out a break-neck 180HP. The engine in my Corolla is 1/2 that size and puts out 130

no it is not a muscle car. I have the SS LS4 & don't consider it a Muscle car. Pony cars back in the late 60's & early 70"s are now considered modern muscle Mustang GT, Challenger RT, Camaro SS & GTO. Basically it's an oversized engine in a smaller coupe. Where the Monte SS is off is its FWD not RWD. If it was RWD it would meet all the requirements to be considered modern muscle.
