The Meaner Rake

Which one has the tougher stance for you '70-'74 or 08-13...and from which perspective, front, rear, or sides.

Sometimes you have to go the extra mile yourself because the dealer won't

My 71 Challenger had a crazy rake. Air shocks at 100PSI and spring shackles running N50 tires.

The best rake was on the 1970.5 AAR 'Cuda and Challenger T/A. I liked the look from both the back and the side.

No factory car has a good stance, Stance is made not bought.

Horsepower without control is nothing but a wick in a keg of gunpowder!

By today's standards, my 72 was too high. But back in the day, I remember loving the look of high-boy Impalas and Econoline axeled Gassers.




Plum Crazy is more than just a color. It is a way of life.

I love old school rake. They should have kept the new R/t's with the current back but with a drop in the front.

It's not too high - your '72 is what a muscle car is all about. This is the reason that I won't lower my car.

It amuses me when Challenger owners who are older, claim to be hard-core old school, but insist on touchscreens & lowered cars.
