As much as I like my Challenger, there's one "retro" touch they left out they really need to bring back - the Highland Park Hummingbird. That distinctive sound told everyone you were driving a Chrysler product every time you started your car.

(For you youngsters out there, "Highland Park Hummingbird" refers to the distinctive high-pitched sound made by the gear-reduction starters Chrysler used in the 60s and 70s.)
