    I saw a post about selling some G1's for a new Challenger. And a post about car shows... So I will be an attention whore and post my car. This is my '71 Dodge Challenger. My uncle and I did all of the work. It has an automatic with a 360. Those are not the original colors but they ARE original 1970/71 Dodge colors: Moulin rouge/panther pink with white interior. It was originally pretty much a base 318, auto. It ended up as a partial R/T clone but that's mostly because it came with a '70 R/T hood on it. And I found rally gauges. Oh, and of course I wanted duel exhaust.

    Nice. Classic cars are awesome. Not to say that modern cars aren't awesome either, but there are some cars from days past that are totally sweet.

    Oooh, Dodge Challenger! my Mom likes those cars. No offense but the color totally makes me think you got a Barbie Car. And I mean that in the nicest way possible. I can only hope to get my dream Muscle Car (Right after I earn my drivers licence).

    Old cars were built to last. I used to be a member of a Chrysler Imperial club and they used to call today's cars "Plastic Econo-boxes".

    Heh, I remember my mom saying that when she was driving a Chevy Camaro back in the late 70s -- and she had a couple of them -- they were a maroon color. She could have had one that was blue, but some African American woman threatened to sue the dealership if they won't let her have it. Mom was working at the dealership then, and she relented. She was not going to argue, nor allow a potential customer walk away unhappy.

    NO! Sub-lime green is even worse than the color it is right now. He needs to paint it Plum Crazy Purple.

    Personally, I'd like a 71 Javelin AMX, with white Crager rims.

    That's a nice challenger. My cousin has a '70 r/t in yellow. Great car. This is my project, it's... officially a classic.
