Comments: Numbers matching 383 automatic, just one of 516 produced of 1,070 R/T convertibles for the 1970 model year. The only year an R/T convertible was available. The car is an absolute joy to drive especially on mountain roads with the top down. The car never fails to win a trophy at whatever show it is at which is quite a feat as it is no trailer queen.

Comments: At the young age of 19, this car has been Mike's daily driver for two years come November. Rain or shine. It runs very well at the strip and the videos are a blast to watch. Mike built his first motor and transmission that are now in this car. Its the original 318, .030, J-heads, Comp Cam, Alum intake, Headers, and a few other goodys. It's turned so far a best of 14.0 with 5,800ft of air. So with decent air it's got mid/high 13s written all over it for a 3,600lb, 318 powered daily driver.

Comments: Jacksboys got this 1971 Dodge Challenger in 1995, when he was only 17. The car received a new paint job, new engine, and a few other upgrades. It served as his daily driver for the next two years, and then served as a special occasion vehicle until 2001. In late 2005, after a four-year hiatus, the 360 was rebuilt with a little performance in mind, with some help from family and friends. With a few more additions, the car should be in the 13's when finished. It is a fun, low maintenance car to drive and got 17+ mpg on the highway while on the 2006 Hot Rod Power Tour

Comments: Jim and Pam purchased this car while it was still on the trailer of a salvage dealer. The entire car was taken to bare metal and all repairs were made before the beautiful white satin with fine blue pearl and clearcoat paint was applied. So, there she now sits in her "renewed glory" as "whitesatinmopar". Some of the changes/upgrades include a built 360 pursuit engine, bored .030 over with a .450 purple shaft cam and a 600 cfm Carter carb. The car has the original interior except for the carpet and upholstery. A beautiful car owned by one of the nicest guys on the board!

Replaced the rear-end with the correct 489 case and 3.55 SureGrip, plus lots of miscellaneous odds and ends. No wonder this car gets a lot of attention while cruising!

I have headers, electronic ignition, edelbrock aluminum manifold, and a BG Mighty Demon Carb. I also just put in 3.91s with a suregrip in the back. The car has recently been repainted and upholstered inside. The car had a/c in it but the entire heater/ac box and lines are pulled out. I'm going to put a new ac system in and I also want to do a 4speed swap. There are still a bunch of little trim and electrical issues I need to work out but overall I love the car.

Here we have a fine example of a 1970 Dodge Challenger R/T which is an original restored N-96 car, 440SixPack, Console delete, Trak-Pak, Hurst Pistol gripped 18 Spline Transmission and it is all numbers matching driveline. The engine makes great torque and is bog-free with the addition of a Pro-max billet adjustable metering plate system on the factory six-pack. Also incorporated is a full TTI ceramic coated exhaust system with 1 7/8 Headers and X-pipe exhaust to stainless tips. It sounds very good.

Here is a 1970, 340 performance package Challenger. It's an LA built car with all the pre smog stuff and has lived in CA since day one. It started out Metallic Tan but now has a Burgundy finish. Features include 340 performance package, front disks, rallye suspension, dash, hood, 15" wheels and the # matching 4-speed. Hope to restore the color back to tan someday but the lacquer is still holding tough.

This member is lucky enough to have a 1970 Dodge Challenger T/A, Plum Crazy, 340 Six Pack! Owned by his dad in 1987 and then sold when he passed away. He found it in Japan in January of 2013 and bought it back. Currently having the original number's matching engine put in the car, hasn't been with car since 1972 when the original owner had it swapped out. One cool story!

Owen Todd Burrichter - Feb. 5, 2009 - July 24, 2013

The August Car of the Month is dedicated to Owen Burrichter, son of Darren (Burdar) and Julie Burrichter. Last December, his father Burdar shared the sad news that Owen was sick and had just had surgery. He remained brave and happy, and fought on. To the members of the Cuda-Challenger group, Owen was like family. Some members showered him with hot wheel cars, which he loved to open and play with. Darren would provide frequent updates on Owen's exploits, his endearing spirit, and his prognosis. For many members, checking up on Owen was the first stop when visiting our site. He had many people praying for him, and offering words of support and encouragement to his family. On Wednesday, July 24, 2013, Owen died peacefully at his home after an heroic battle. The memory of Owen, and his love for cars and trucks, and helping his dad work on their car will live on, in each of us as we share in our love for our family, friends, and as we enjoy the cars of our hobby.

Originally a Tunisian Tan 318 Barracuda, it was remade in 2003 into a 440-6 barrel Cuda. Limelight green, shaker hood, 4 speed pistol grip, close ratio A-833, 3.54 Dana rear, Rallye gauges with white faces, and a few creature comforts like power brakes, steering, windows, and vintage air for the tropical climate. The engine build is relatively stock, and supposedly puts out a dyno tested 378 hp, with headers and a full 3” TTI exhaust system. Beautiful!

The car will be painted in Sublime and will have the AAR front black out with ‘Cuda tips through the valance exhaust. The interior will be black and somewhat stock looking. The idea is to make a slightly upgraded version of an AAR just without It the AAR stripes. Some details are 340 stroked to 416 (MRL kit, TTI headers, Edelbrock RPM heads, Crane cam and lifters) EFI 6 barrel (F&B) A833 23 spline Homemade hydraulic clutch, Reinforced 8 3/4 with 3.55 gears!
