    Due to the recent budget cuts,
    the rising cost of electricity, gas, and oil, plus the
    current state of the economy, the light at the end
    of the tunnel has been turned off.

    This one is EXACTLY like the one a classmate of mine drove our senior year (albeit with a considerable amount of rust by 1983-4). This was my first experience of a car with a "slap-stick" transmission. What a blast it was to drive compared to the slugs everyone else was driving at the time.

      Dude, I have a 2019 SKT Challenger and it's only a six, and poop you not it is fast!!! That six gets thirty miles to a gallon on the interstate and has a top end of a 155 I think. I love Dodge and I went as far as getting myself a tag for my mustang that says my other car is a Challenger for laughing out loud. I'm getting the tag from slimebag today. I wish I could take a picture with it on my mustang but it's in the shop getting a Drag Package installed. After installing the Supercharger it has a hard time hooking up if I give it the get the heck out of dodge treatment. Thanks for looking.

        I hear you Daniel! The V6 in modern muscle cars will outrun most cars from the 70's. I have a 2012 V6 Mustang that is a fast of a car as I'll ever need. Maybe it was growing up in a horsepower-starved era, but to me a 0-60 time around 6 seconds is still quite quick. Click image for larger version

          Yes that's what the car does 0 to 60 in six seconds but it's so smooth you think you are going faster.

          By the way, those Mustangs are killer. Why haven't you posted them before?

            That's a good looking Rallye Challenger.

              I like that plate frame

              I did post one of those pictures in the real rides section last summer after my son got the white Mustang. He since traded that in for an Escape and more recently a 2021 Supra....I tend to keep cars a LOT longer than he does.

                That Supra is sexy and I still can't get over it utilizing the M3 BMW Motor. Very cool. Keeping cars I love my 05 Mustang and she isn't worth a dime but her parts contained on her have to be 20,000 plus for lol that's counting labor too.

                  That Challenger is a nice change from the hemi & 440 equipped ones.

                    John!!!!! I am insulted that my 1959 Renault Daphine with electric clutch was a slug driven by everyone else at the time!!

                      That Renault sounds like it would have been a good drag racing match for my automatic transmission equipped 1986 Toyota Tercel!

                        Wow! This is a nice one, Daniel! I may have to add one of these to my own diecast collection! Great to see that Auto World did the Rallye trim version of this old Challenger, too!

                          I have this red one and this gold one with different color tops. Never seen a Challenger with that style of stripes.





                          I do have this one in a solid blue. That white one is awesome for sure...
