Pros

ran 12s with a different motor
orig. color is eye catching
gets 20 mpg

Cons

slow....like as in 14.30s with the stock 340.

55

Challenger — Its slower than the '64 by a bunch. Mainly because its heavy. Fortunately, unlike the '64, it has sway bars and easly handles as well as many new cars. Even gets 20 mpg.

This Is One Badass Car — this car is built for street or strip. the proformance is wonderful due to the 440 under the hood backed up with a holly car. this car is nice to drive in town , pretty cool when people break their necks to see it

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros

Great American ingenuity for a pony car.

Cons

Needs restored

25

Mopars Forever — Needs a restoration. Don't ask! It is not for sale. I had a '70 back when it was new. Should not have gotten rid of it. Should have stored it and taken care of it. They are fun cars to drive and enjoy. Back seat area is for small people, it gets a little cramped for adults after awhile. It is AMERICAN made!

Pros

Brash, bold, LOUD, fast, very american and very manly

Cons

needs a ground-up restoration before it rots away completely.

45

Its Old, But It Aint Dead — My car has had a rough 35 year existence and still needs lots of work. If you look beyond the pretty paint, its actually not that pretty. It has more rust than I probably even know, everything except the radiator leaks, anything electrical is a disaster, and it basically was restored very badly. Having said that, it is still a challenger. It is very fast although considering what it is I wish it was faster (and it will be soon), it handles surprisingly well although the steering is a little vague, its good and loud, and its an American Icon. It gets looks everywhere I take it, and it scares all the little kiddies and thier riced-out imports.
