There's nothing like the open road, a powerful car and a beautiful Spring day.
This week's 5 Cars suggests grabbing a muscle car. What's that? According to Merriam-Webster, it's one of "a group of American-made two-door sports coupes with powerful engines designed for high-performance driving." We're talking a huge, honkin' V6 or V8 engine, rear-wheel drive, something you'd imagine Fonzie driving in a drag race. Best of all, a muscle car can make its driver look like she or he shouldn't be messed with: These powerful, though fairly inexpensive, vehicles can make you look and feel tougher, stronger, sexier and richer than you probably are.

Insurance brokers say crime rates, population density figures and racial breakdown figures account for the lower insurance rates. Conversely, residents in the Caldwells and West Essex pay $1,550 (27.3 percent below the state …
