Great Old Muscle Car — Bought from thrid owner in Oregon, needed lots of work. Fun to do, no real damage, some rust but not bad, great looking done. Always gets notice and pics take going down the road and shows. Fantastic to have around.

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

Pros: Last of real muscle cars, good power even with small V8, fun to drive, get positive reactions all the time, unique body style for the era.  Parts are everywhere, no shortage there - even today.

Cons: Seats sit low, rear vision limited, not much seat adjustment available.

My Baby — Cant say much about the car, its in rough shape and needs a lot of work. I inherited it from my uncle when he passed and it had a blown engine already when i got it. When i get the money I will fix it up and make it an awesome car. Parts are expensive for it because it is a pretty rare car anymore. I need an engine, transmission, paint job, interior,brakes, and some body work. its a pretty solid car considering its been setting for years. hopefully before too long I will get enough money to get started on it

Pros: great body styling and looks fast setting still

Cons: that i cant drive it till i fix it

My First Love. — This car was a blast to drive, great on gas mileage and rarely needed servicing. It never got stuck in the snow and the acceleration was phenomenal (70 to 120 in under 5 sec). Bought it back in the early 1990s for $2,500 and put almost 50,000 on it.

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

Pros: So fun to drive and was a fairly unique vehicle at the time I owned it.

Cons: parts got hard to find

Enjoy The Ride And Relive Your Youth. — There is nothing I dislike about my Challenger. It's performance is not like my 340 Duster I used to own, but it's a fun ride that see's lots of summer use. Its the car I wished I'd owned when they wher new. The car hasn't cost me much to own. It needed tires (ones on the car when I bought it where new in 1979, a tuneup and a good cleaning. As I only drive it in the good weather, it costs me about $500.00 for gas. It's a late production date (mid April 1974) and while I can't prove it, many have told me the triple green color combnination(interior, exterior and vinyl roof), may make it the last triple green Challenger built. A final note..NO RUST.

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

Pros: Great ego booster for me.

Cons: None really.

Old School Muscle — Its my dad's car but I drive it more than him for some weird reason. Its got a big block 440 in it so its got ridiculous torque. Gets like 8 mpg. If you stand behind it while its idling, the raw fuel will choke you and make your eyes water.

Pros: Torque and looks.

Cons: Horrendous visability and gas mileage

Challenger — Just finished painting it, looks amazing for a very unprofessional job. Engine is working incredibly, but the tranny could use a bit of work. Love to drive it around town, but it would be nice ig it had a stereo in it or something along those lines. Also some headers and maybe a new carburetor.

Pros: My Car

Cons: Transmission
