    Just Read It. — i own a 1959 vette, 67 Oldsmobile Cutlass S convertable (330 Ultra High Compression) 1966 Chrysler 300 and a few other junkers (per my wife) and while the Olds is the eye opener, the Dodge is the most fun to drive. It has Mopar dependibilty, (where else can you buy a "junked car with chunks missing from the cam and 3 cam bearings missing which still runs great and carries oil-pressure). For me at least I bought the Dodge in 1985 and still drive it. It is time for some motor work as the cylinder heads need work with only 389,000 miles on the original 318. With the Crane cam and the Wieand intake and a Thermoquad, it still runs the quarter in 14.37 @92.6 on pump (87)gas. Now if I can just get it to stop rusting around the rear window.

    Mopar Monkey Bouncin Off The Walls. — Love the look, rareity, and performance of this car. I am a first time mopar owner and so far it has been fun. I drove the car for about a month and now is getting disassembled in my garage for the restoration. Removed all interior to get a good look at the floor in which it was all solid. Just put down all of the sound deadner and waiting for carpet to come in the mail. Update: car is done!

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

    Pros: This is a 72 Challenger with the orginal 318 and also the orginal transmission.  Now has elelbrock maniford and carb. with headers and a shift kit. Also a ac car.

    Cons: Parts are hard to find then if you do find them be ready to throw out some cash.

    Tracy Challenger — Just bought my dream car! Top Banana yellow with the rallye edition black stripes, has a 340, 600 edelbrock carb, 10 1/2 to 1"s, balanced and blue printed, 521 lift cam, aluminum rad, manual valve body, reverse pistol grip shifter, 727 trans with shift kit, 8 3/4 posii with 323 gears, restored to origingal. The interior is all there in nice shape, the clock even works, it's the best Challenger I have ever had... Indy 500 firehawk tires that I just purchased makes it hook up nice... I love this car, it handles like a Challenger, so it is a bit sloppy on the ass end, but over all I have to say it's awesome! I am a die hard Mopar girl, and the challenger has always been my favorite car.. I LOVE IT!

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

    Pros: It's fun, fast and nice to look at!

    Cons: I can't think of any reasons to avoid this car!
