Worst Conversion

And here is the worst conversion. This guy just tacked on a Superbird rear spoiler and called it a day.

looks like it has a nose cone too but, they are all horrid. Do a 'Cuda conversion instead.

Actually the Rain Prisk one is a rendering, not a kit.

You're right. From the side angle I didn't spot the "Superbird" nose cone. It's nice that guys want to pay tribute to the 1970 Superbird, but these conversions are all wrong. The body styles between a 1970 Road Runner and a modern day Challenger are totally different.

I like them all except the first blue one with the shaker scoop... it does not fit; and the last one you put in.

A couple of those are freaking cool. I like them even though it is on the wrong car... but, they are undeniably cool at least to me! Thanks for the post!

The last one on your first post is the best. The black one needs to lose the stripes.

that black car made my eyes cross and started a headache...

Superbird wing, 'Cuda hockey stripe, lower body strobe stripe and the "standing bird" on the spoiler - it was just everything thrown together.

As @Cuda 340 mentions the body proportions were longer on an B-body vs. E-body (Challenger) and it just looks strange.

I've seen a few of these in person and it just doesn't work very well.

That B5 Blue one with the shaker stuck on top of the hood bulge = FAIL.

no, no & no..just walk away!
they may make lil kids go "ohhh aahhh" because they are flashy and different. real car guys will roll thier eyes and girls will think you are compensating for something..lol but to each his own.
The only one I looked at close up ( on display at a dodge dealer none the less) was atrocious..fit and finish everywhere was deplorable, had a mix of dodge & pymouth emblems and decals (??) and had 425HP call out decals acrossed the hood, but was on a stock sxt platform...."poser" decals all over it, would have been more honest.
