Have you ever see a Dodge Road Runner? No??

Now you have!

Wouldn't you like to own this one-of-a-kind collector's item? I wonder how much it would go for at Barrett-Jackson?

P.S. Check out those "eye-catching" wheels. Imagine those on your Challenger!

that's the sort of stuff I've seen at cars shows in the NW...

If its a local club's car - they'll win the award. Even where there were better examples in the show...

This kind of stuff is not confined to the Northeast. The car was spotted in Louisiana.

I'll admit it doesn't appeal to me, but how is it so much different than a Dodge 'Cuda?
I am a purist and don't like the Dodge 'Cuda conversion. Maybe it's because I owned a 1971 'Cuda. At least the 'Cuda conversions that I have seen have replica front grills, tail lights, spoilers and fender gills. The "Dodge Road Runner," just looks clownish with its super large Road Runner decals and horrible looking wheels.

Looks just as good as the Dodge 'Cudas that all the cool guys Rave about. Bah, Plymouth is dead and gone. GET OVER IT!

I can appreciate that, I'm much the same way.
To be candid, I think Dodge could have done a lot better than throwing a SRT hood on a R/T and calling it a T/A too.

looks as good as the Daytona and Superbird kits on Challengers...... Next we'll see Coronet R/T conversions......
The Daytona and Superbird kits have replica front end noses, high rear spoilers, etc. The Dodge "Road Runner" just has a large cartoonish decal. A very cheap way to mimic a Plymouth Road Runner. How can you compare the two?

This is true with most local car shows...... How's that saying go again.....? "All politics is local". :|

Really?? Look at that Fugly POS... If I saw that at a show I would look for the owner so I could personally ask them why they ruined a good car.

I didn't say that I liked it. All I was trying to say is that a lot more effort and money went into these Daytona and Super Bird conversions than the big decal Road Runner.
