Ya the green one I'm sure I will see again at my car clubs cruise night. This one was the next night at another cruise about 30 min from my house. Both are outstanding. Has me thinking sometimes selling my car and buying one of these beauties. I like to run my car hard sometimes and wouldn't feel right doing that in this car lol. I couldn't resist this beauty either.

This is for certain people saying the retro look shouldn't have happened...mine and a couple of buddies I think prove otherwise.

I don't run my cars hard, but I haven't tinkered with a carburetor in years & I don't miss it.

Yup, park a 6th generation beside any of those cars & ask a kid which they prefer. Why is it important? They'll be the collectors 30 years from now.

That damn Challenger gets all kinds of attention lol.The gentleman that owns it is retired but owned cars in the hayday of muscle cars and is am old time drag racer. All people do is compare it to the old version. Alot of kids are attracted to it as well.

I'm seeing first hand from a buddy at work that had a 455 4 spd Trans Am.Never really got it runningright so he sold it. Then he goes out and buys a 78 Vette with the tall intake and dual carbs....side pipes and some other goodies. He picks it up today....lets see if this one runs.

The day I bought my first Challenger, I pulled into the driveway & my neighbor who happened to be outside, came over to ask how much I spent restoring it.
Dodge did a helluva job on the new Challenger; if only their quality was on par.

I took it as a huge compliment to Dodge's retro design of the modern Challenger.

Maybe if there is a Gen 8 the turbo 6 will be tops, but Gen 7 will still have a V8
