This has probably been asked before, but what was your previous sport/muscle/performance car prior to the Challenger?

For me, due to a string of Jeeps afterwards, I have go back to my 2009 Ford Mustang GT.
987295

Before that, due to a string of trucks, I have to go all the way back to my 1986 Toyota Supra.

My previous was a 2009 Challenger R/T. The one before that was a 1966 Chevelle. Yeah, a l-o-n-g gap between the Chevelle and the 2009.

2007 Dodge Magnum, 1986 Monte Carlo SS. 1985 Porshe 944. 80's Acura Integra, 80's Audi Quattro.

I always wanted an old 60's Charger so when they brought out the new Challenger it took 10 years to get one, definitely not disappointed. The only bad thing is now I want a Scat or Hellcat. I would lose my butt as I owe more then what the car is worth even with 4227 miles on it. If I go out to the car lot they are selling for much more then what they tell me mine is worth. That's what we get for buy brand new I guess.

It looks like a standard issue Firebird with Trans Am fenders by the time you swap out the hood and wheels. Did you remove hood and shaker or did you buy it second hand with the hood in place already?



I remember those L88 hoods. Seems like the aftermarket made 'em for virtually any car you wanted to put one on.

This takes me back. I had a 1970. Mine never looked so good though. Bought it in my senior year of high school. Faded orange paint and a ton of money spent on the 400 build left not enough for new paint when I was still just a kid in my teens and then the car was gone by the time I was just 21. In my 3rd year of college a door man at a local night club I'd see at the drag strip wanted it more than I did and I sold it to him in 1981. He painted it.......I'd see it parked around town where I was in school. I like to think someone still has it and it lives on. Horrendous MPG but a strong runner that could hit mid 12s on street tires when I sold it. In 1980 I was running the car a Cayuga just about every weekend all summer long. Just typing that makes me realize how very ago that was. I can't say I remember most of the runs but I can still hear that engine ring with it's open headers. Wildest cam profile I ever had in any car I've ever owned.
