1978 Dodge Magnum Review
Big, great looking, different. Don't see many.
Rust, unibody, lean burn. All easily remedied.
Dare To Be Different — The look grabbed me right away. Of course having bought one early in life really brings back a lot. Big block 2 door doesn't hurt either. I've grown tired of small and big block chevys, not that they aren't great but its funny how we end up back at our roots. Never got to drive the first one so this one starts where I left off years ago
Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Great Car,.fun To Own. Never Regreted Buying It.
This car impressed me from the first day I took it home, and I always liked it. When you consider how much power it has it is hard to believe that it also gets over twenty miles per gallon of gas on t... Read More
I love this car, I sold my Magnum RT to get a Magnum SRT8! Car has nice power, great features, tons of space. Only issue was front end. Tie Rods and tension struts were the weak link. I was averaging ... Read More
Good solid car, has the 318 V8, in my opinion one of dodge's better engines. Roomy, I wanted an old cruiser, and this car is perfect for that. The GT is what you want if you want more power and more o... Read More
