The best upgrades for a muscle car are the ones that offer an improvement, add to the style, or increase comfort for the driver and passengers. From a high-tech stereo system to complete auto body kits, upgrading your muscle car with the right modifications will increase its value and, more importantly, your enjoyment of the car.
Why not take the seating from pretty good to spectacular? There’s no need to replace seats completely. A lot of seat cover options can add padding, style, and comfort.
Installing seat pads that contrast with the current color of your seats adds a cool effect. For example, add padded black leather seat pads over tan leather seats. Leather is luxury, but seat pads come in all types of materials for fabric and leather lovers alike. There are even massaging seat covers available. Get a back rub while you drive—there could be worse things.
If cranking the tunes is your thing, make a stereo upgrade your first modification to enjoy every ride. Speakers and Bluetooth improvements bring ease of use and great sound. Both are easy to install on your own, but if you aren’t comfortable with that, have a professional install them.
Auto Body Kits
A complete auto body kit is the ultimate for big-impact modifications. A full auto body kit comes complete with spoilers, bumpers, side skirts, and bonnets. Installing one at home is an option if you know what you’re doing, but professional installation is often the better option for an entire auto body kit. These kits give any muscle car a sporty style and improved aerodynamics.
A New Paint Job
If jaw-dropping looks are what you are after for your car, then a custom paint job is the place to start. Give your car a unique color scheme, differentiating it from all others. A specialized paint job makes your car easy to spot in a crowded parking lot and the envy of appreciative car lovers as you drive by.
On the right car, racing wheels look super cool and offer great handling. Not all racing wheels are legal on the street, so research regulations in your area, and get the ones that won’t get you pulled over. Weight and treads make the difference with racing wheels, and their wider stance looks sharp and gives your tires a better grip on the road, making handling smoother.
In conclusion, the best upgrades for a muscle car are the ones that create a ride that best reflects you. Comfort and style are unique to each car owner. Let yours shine through with the upgrades that make the car of your dreams.
