Ford Mustang for me. I spent my early teenage listening to Jeh Wadia's '69 Mustang. It was absolutely intoxicating.
And yes, I am the same idiot who missed an opportunity to get myself a Dodge Charger at a throw away price.
As a consolation, I have a Pontiac GTO, albeit a 1:18 scale model. I love it!

For me its the Dodge Charger. Love it.
Viper isn't exactly a muscle car.......its more of a sports car and besides its not from the same era. (Correct me if i'm wrong)

The Mustang - Coz there is only one original muscle car.

And since you havent mentioned year and spec, it will be the Gt350 for me. White with blue racing stripes!

Stratos I don't know which period you're talking but a Viper is all time hit muscle car for me. Essentially the '97, '98 breed. V10 engine producing 450 hp at 5200 rpm and with a torque rating of 490 pound-feet at 3700 rpm. This according to me was the higest at that point in time amongst any American cars. And the look?? Well., One of the best looking car for me. Will post some shots if I can manage to find them from my archive.
