I agree,From the first photo I can't say which one is the fastest but I can sure tell you which one hurts my eyes the most...:lol:
As much as I dislike GM, it aint the Pontiac.....
Although it is true a 1971-7X Javelin may have to grow on you, the first generation factory painted RWB Javelin is a much more conservative car style and paint wise and doesn't require the "growing on you". I agree 100% that the 1971+ cars do grow on you... But it took me 15 years to warm up to them.I agree,
when you first see an AMC R/W/B car, it may be a little much. It is a little much on the eyes.
But the SS AMX, TA Javelins, Rebel Machine, and the like just grow on you.
Count me in on the Roadrunner bandwagon. Had a '73 Richard Petty Blue, black stripes with 340 engine; sold it when I got married. Got a '74 used a few years later with the 400. Neither one was anywhere close to performance or MPG of today's Challenger, but I liked 'em! Wish I had both of them right now! Would be a nice addition to my retirement funding.Are you sure your not my twin down there?? Lol
The only difference is you've kept yours, while I've had to sell mine down the line.
I had a 74 Roadrunner as well. lol Same car just white with the green RR stripe. I haven't thought about that for a while till you posted the picture.
Unfortunately, I wasn't able to start driving til the early 80's. Due to my age and budget, a lot of my muscle car were already 15 - 18 years old and pretty used up. You had to be handy with a wrench or you were walking.
I'd say we're pretty lucky to walk in into a dealership and buy one brand new. Loved my old cars, but then I had more time than money.
I always invisioned when I was young with these cars..... "Wonder what it drove like new?" Now I get that chance. Very lucky indeed.
