The American muscle car, introduced in 1949, is an essential component of the car industry.  In response to the sudden demand for faster cars at this time, Oldsmobile débuted its Rocket 88.  The Rocket 88 had a high-compression overhead valve V8 in a lightweight Oldsmobile body.  The body was the same platform as the Oldsmobile 76, which was designed for a six cylinder engine.  This combination created the definition of a muscle car: a car with a light body and a powerful engine.  The Rocket 88 dominated the NASCAR circuit in 1950, escalating the craze for speed.

The need for fast cars started with prohibition in the 1920s.  Moonshiners and bootleggers wanted to be able to outrun police vehicles, so they started modifying their cars.  As the years passed and prohibition ended, the Southern moonshiners became infamous for their modified cars.  The moonshiners transformed their cars due to the demand for speed, handling, and cargo capacity.  By the 1940s, these cars progressed to be more efficient.  The moonshining business was not nearly as profitable as it was during prohibition; the moonshiners started to use their cars for racing.  These remodeled cars dominated the street racing circuits and thus inspired the Oldsmobile Rocket 88.
