    2nd Best Car I Ever Owned — only call the challenger "2nd" best because i over-restored a '68 hemi coronet and added a bunch of suspension upgrades to make it ride/drive better than stock. my 1971 challenger r/t was my first 'real car' back in the late 80s, it was a 383 car with a transplanted 440, the original 4-speed, 8.75" axle with 3.91 sure-grip, front and rear sway bars (part of the hemi suspension and cooling package) and was a very capable car around corners and it was my daily driver for several years when i didnt even own another vehicle....i still beat on it mercilessly. had to replace a few clutches and a timing chain...but otherwise it was a great car that stood up well to all the abuse a 21 year-old could throw at it.

    Pros: shaker hood, 4-speed, plum crazy, white stripes, white interior, decklid spoiler, 440

    Cons: no a/c....was pretty rough in south texas in this thing
