Love Owning This Car, Love Driving This Car, Bottom Line I Can't Sell It...... Ever — Performance- With the relatively small 383 and the huge rear tires it has good acceleration from a stop, but really comes to life from 55 mph to 100+ mph Build Quality- Mechanically the car is built with great quality, I've never been left stranded or had to put anything but typical wear parts into it (Brakes, shocks, Etc) Appearance- The 71 is one of my favorite styles, it has broad shoulders, and beefy looks. the mileage isn't bad if you keep your foot out of the 4 barrels, and it is a fun car to drive, it gets looks everywhere you go, and they are finally starting to offer replacement panels for the restoration of them.

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

Pros: Its a manly musclecar that can still be bought reasonably priced

Cons: They cost too much to buy a restored one, but cost too much to restore

It Is A Must Have — This 1971 Dodge Charger is a Superbee, on of the only years they made it for the Charger. It has a 440 Magnum in it. It is a really fun car to take out on the streets. This car can handle just about anything that goes up against it. And definitely will be a huge threat once we put a V10 under the hood. The downside to driving this car is the gas mileage. If you don't have the money to go out driving every now and then, then don't get it. It gets a whopping 8 miles to the gallon without your foot in it.

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

Pros: The fact that it has a 440 Magnum should be enough to get most people to get one

Cons: The only downside to this is is the gas mileage

Great And Fun Car... Not A Lot Of Them Around Anymore. — Long front end but classic mopar. Raw and in your face power combined with sweet 70's mopar style. From a time when we didn't worry about the fuel prices.. this was before the crisis hit. I remember this car with a lot of fondness.

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

Pros: Power

Cons: Gas

Another Mopar — Same as the Challenger, needs restored; don't ask, it is not for sale either. It is top of the line SE with leather interior. I would like to know how many were built with leather interiors because I did not realize that it was an option. I bought it wrecked, one of the previous owners hit a deer.

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

Pros: "Coke bottle" design, brut force(440-4bbl)

Cons: Not running at the present time.
