Yeps, but the first one ends up pretty expensive, I know, and I absolutly dont like the Bumblebee stripe - makes the car shorter.
If I wanted a short looking car, - I would buy a Cuda...      :smilielol:   :roflsmiley:

The second one....  4 Speed..     ???     :poopoke: :poopoke: Aint got the energi for all that messing around while driving..   :roflsmiley: :smilielol:

Ahhh...diff. strokes for sure.

I absoluetely LOVE the bumble bee (when applied correctly) for the very fact that it does "shorten" the car.  I'm in the small camp where I can't STAND the '70 longitudal stripe.

The '71 stripe (aside from the T/A stripe) is the coolest on Challengers, w/the '72-'74 "strobe" decals a close 2nd.

'71s are definitely tasty, even w/the grille/taillight assembly not quite as clean looking as the 1970s.  E.g.:



Stance is everything on Challengers.  Must have a rake!
