I like three things:

The Challenger front end replacing that ugly Charger truck front.

The purple color on the lower half (but not with the pink, please...)

Finally, I like that I will never look at it again after I post my comments!

What's going on with those gawd-awful wheels? Bozo's Clown Car. I do like the wing doors - they're good for chopping off limbs.

talent misguided by the need to create. Very Dangerous thing. Recovery is possible though. Intervention is a must.

I would tell you what I think about that but my mother said "If you can't say something nice don't say anything at all". I do like my Frankenstein much better. My first car I bought in 1978. It's a 1957 Oldsmobile Rocket 88 with a J2 tri-power and manual transmission. It was about to be hauled off to the junkyard when I got it. We named it Frankenstein because we used parts from 7 other cars to rebuild it and 80% of the floor has been replaced as well as both rocker panels. He is still going strong after an engine transplant this spring my dad and I swapped the 371cid with a 394cid Rocket engine he has had under his workbench that he pulled out of a 1959 Super 88 convertible before he scrapped it in the 70's. He wanted to put some miles on it and make sure it was still in good condition and I had pulled the engine from Frankie to rebuild it after nearly 200,000 miles.

How much money would it take for this car to be your daily driver for one year? Also, you would have to take it to at least two car shows.

Hmm...


Even if it breaks down?


Assuming it runs without issue for a year, at least $50k.
