Does anyone know if the plum crazy for the new Challenger is exactly the same as the '70s color?

You decide..  I will point out the fact the new one is 25% bigger.... :smilielol:

All right!
I hear the roads can be a handful of fun over there.
I'm going to have to make it to Citluk one day to see the old family homestead.

Yeah, the roads over here can be a handful, you got that right! The only thing is that it can be a handful of fun or terror...  :naughty:

A friend of mine asked me what it's like to drive it. I told him it is a deadly mixture of terror, adrenalin rush, panic and pure testosteron! :ylsuper:

Vacation - absolutely!! Coast in the summertime is fantastic! If you need some tips and hints, just let me know...

I'll post pictures after a few drives of course. First I have to sort out the engine (there are some leaks), change oil, filters etc.

Well, just once I saw a '69 Mustang in Zagreb (Croatian capital). No Mopars, no Chevys... there are certainly some, but they seem to be well hidden.

It was fun to drive from Netherlands to Croatia, at every petrol station I got people asking questions about it and taking photos. Even on the motorway I would say every other car had a person with a nose stuck to the window taking a peek, especially kids.  :bigshades:

Your Challenger looks awesome! If it was me......I would spend some serious time driving it and enjoying it before tearing it down for a repaint. Good luck with her   :2thumbs:

A must-see destination on a road trip through Croatia: ancient city of Dubrovnik. Among other things it was used for filming Game of Thrones and now the new Star Wars movie.
