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.)

Pros: Big, great looking, different. Don't see many.

Cons: Rust, unibody, lean burn. All easily remedied.

1978 Dodge Magnum XE Review
William says:
I got this one in the early 80s, so she was not very old at the time. Sweet ride based upon the Chrysler Cordoba. Cool concealed headlights. Nice leather upholstery. 360CID engine, 2BBL. I ran into a blood-sucking female who caused me to neglect the car, eventually resulting in me losing the car. I still miss that car -- and regret ever having anything to do with the woman.
