The important thing in the OP's pic is that everyone is parked correctly. Well done.

Look at it on the bright side. You are parked beside two nice cars and don't have to worry about getting your doors beat in.

You're right, 2 Dodges don't make it right, but 2 Wright's made the airplane.

There were also 2 5.0's and another Challenger elsewhere in the lot. They all pulled through, which I guess is the same end result as backing in.

Three muscle cars, and not one a V-8. Yet every single one is faster than the V-8 cars they pay tribute to.... And that charger has an autobot sticker on it's fender near the marker light.

I was wondering how long it would take someone to notice that. Lol

I love digging into my reference

2012 Camaro ZL1 12.0 sec @ 119 mph (SuperChevy.com http://www.superchevy.com/features/c...12_zl1_camaro/)

1969 Camaro COPO, ZL-1 (427) 12.76 sec @ 107 mph (Muscle Car Review, 1987, presumably on drag tires. Classic Auto Restorer reviewed one in August 1994 [Vol 6, #2] that ran 13.16 sec @ 110 mph)
1970 Buick GS455 Stage 1 13.38 sec @ 105.5 mph (Motor Trend, 1970)
1963 Doge Ramcharger 426 12.00 sec @ 117 mph (Muscle Car Review, 1987)
1970 Dodge Challenger R/T (426) 13.62 sec @ 104 mph (Car Craft, 1969)
1964 Fairlane Thunderbolt 427 11.76 sec @ 122.78 ph (Butch Leal, 1964 NHRA Nationals)
1970 Mercury Cyclone (428CJ) 13.94 sec @ 100.89 mph (Car and Driver, 1969)
1968 Hurst/Olds 442 (Olds 455) 12.97 sec @ 108.167 mph (Car Craft, date not cited)
1963 Plymouth 426 Wedge 12.69 sec @ 111.97 mph (Hot Rod, January 1963)
1966 Plymouth satellite 'Street Hemi' (426) 13.8 sec @ 104 mph (Car and Driver, April 1966)
1970 Plymouth Hemi 'Cuda (426) 13.70 sec @ 101.2 mph (Motor Trend September 1969)
1971 Pontiac Firebird Trans Am (455) 13.90 sec @ 104.6 mph (Car and Driver, 1972)

Unless those V6 models are dipping into the upper 13s (and lower 13s too), stock, then they aren't faster than many muscle cars from back in the day. And for some of the cream of the crop, well, a '63 Dodge in street trim could do a sub-13 second 1/4 mile...if you knew which boxes to check off

When we think of 'muscle cars' today, we forget that if you bought the right one, you were going very, very fast. What's really cool is that today, my 2012 1SS with a 376 is 426 bhp, while the very exotic aluminum block 427 in the '69 COPO made 430 bhp. The depressing thing is I carry over 9lbs per bhp, while the '69 has just over 7 lbs per bhp. Something tells me that COPO wasn't hooking when they tested it in 1994.

Nothing wrong with either of those cars. I owned a 2010 Camaro, but was not practical for me with my family and where I live. I know own a 2013 Charger R/T AWD and I love It. Way more practical now...
