For a Mopar.... not bad at all.
What a fine job of capturing the classic.

It's a sweet looking ride. It's on the cover of one of the auto enthusiasts mags out. I thumbed through the magazine and was impressed by what I saw of this car.

Damn, that looks cool.
Is it available in Hybrid? With Nav system and iPod hookup?

Very nice.


Automobile suggested that the 510 horsepower 6.4 liter 392 Hemi might be used

Holy crap.

HemiEd and I are going to the Chicago Auto Show next month. I'm really stoked about seeing this car in person (as is Ed, obviously :D ).

I used to have a Dodge Charger Superbee-man I got a lot of love in the back seat of that car. Won a lot of street races too.

This is what the Charger should have been. I still can't believe they brought back the Charger and made it a 4 door. :shake:

This well sell like crazy.

There is also a new/old Camaro in the works. I think this looks better than the Camaro though.

My pops had a 'Cuda. '66 I think. He tells me I used to say when I was a youngun': "Daddy, make that go-fast sound!" (burnout)

They did a lot better job with that remake than they did the Charger. That actually looks a lot like the Challenger - I hear the interior is also supposed to be like the old Challenger with with a few improvements.

I love the look of that Challanger. Hopefully they will keep the actual car they sell looking close to that. It's to bad it weighs 4160 lbs. That's 300lbs more than they did back in 1970. :shake:

if so, and it's affordable, mopar is the greatest car company known to man

I'd be stunned if it isn't. This is obviously Dodge's answer to the revamped Mustang. I would image you'll be seeing these racing reborn Camaros in about a year and a half.

I'm sure the people who can afford to buy the upper end versions of these cars won't care.

Especially if they request one with the 500HP + Hemi..... :drool:

Actually, I think the lines on it look a lot like a late 60's Camaro, except for the very front.

How long till Ford re-sells the Model T again to improve upon dismal sales?

Actually, it's pretty sad that American car companies have to go retro to compete with Asian and European cars, design and innovation-wise. When was the last time you saw an American Sedan that was really inspiring? (other than the Chrysler 300c and maybe some of the new Cadillacs). Most (all?) of the Ford, Chevy and Dodge sedans are boogers.
Okay, so maybe ANY sedan is not inspiring, but other than the Ford Focus, even their compacts are blah.

Don't get me wrong, I love these cars. I think they're super-rad. But while companies like Nissan are making the new Z, and Audi with the TT and Porsche with the boxster, or the Lexus IS. These are truly new designs.

Just sayin' it's a bummer the big three have to do this to get our attention.

Sweet.

And life comes full circle as Bob Dole's last car can be the same model as his first.

I hope it's easy to steal.

I'd like to have one.
