Beautiful Work From Mopar — Dangerously fast car for some who never drove a car with 500 hp. Safe to say it is easy to get into trouble with this one. But it is a blast to drive. It may be on the auction block in the near future.

Pros

The looks, sound and performance when you drive

Cons

still runs on leaded gasoline so a special (expensive) lead addative needs to be mixed with the gasoline

Challenger T/a — My first car when I turned 16. Bought it in April of 1997 and still have it. Original numbers matching car with 35,000 miles. (32k when bought in 97') Only driven for fun a leisure, multiple national show winner and featured in several magazine articles over the years. Very rare, very flashy and very fast muscle car.

Gas guzzling.

Dodge '70. — Well... as muscle cars go, this one is quite unique. Lots of power and torque. Has a really solid frame. Interior needs work but exterior is really beautiful. Drag racing this thing is good stuff. Its a gas guzzler though.

I Will Not Give This Car Up For Anyone. My Exwife Proved That..... — Well, It's Triple Black, fourspeed, 440 Six pack, Aside from hot as hell in the summer, It will burn the tires in all four gears.I need to do a full resoration on it, to finish up the little things it needs. It has the normal Challenger tinny door shut sound. OH And check this 18 miles a gallon. Eat that Obama....

Dream Car That Is Reliable, Stylish And Somewhat Attainable — My 1970 Challenger is a basic small block version but still packs in tons of fun!!. Most older muscle cars have great brawn reputations but lack in the handling department. I upgraded my E-body Challenger with Hotchkis Total Suspension that literally transformed my car. It is now a world class handling machine that circles the skid pad at .93g. The new SRT8 Challenger can only manage .84g. Aside from the suspension upgrades, my car is pretty much stock. It is reliable, tough and very attractive. It's the ultimate muscle car.

Looks fast, reasonably comfortable bucket seats, synchromesh trans, limited slip differential, Rallye wheels, chick magnet

Cons

AM radio only. reverse lockout, Lucas electrics. low mpg, tendency to over heat

My First Car — One of the most beautiful cars ever built, but unless you had a big block engine or a Hemi, it wasn't a really fast car. Suspension was stiff and the mileage was terrible. But this is a beautiful body, who wouldn't want it.
