These new Challengers WILL be collectors items in the future.
I have to disagree with that. This is an open debate, both sides of it will be voicing opinion and only time will tell but I don't think any of these new cars will be collectors items. The Charger, 300C, Challenger, etc. All nice cars in their own right, don't get me wrong, wonderful
cars but they have one thing against them, all the same engines. Sure, a few old retro colours and some old name tags slapped on grabs a few buyers but there isn't much going for it in terms of resale in years to come, in my opinion. Every car has a Hemi, 5.7 or 6.1. That's it, end of engine choices (V6 ain't performance, ain't counted). The E-Bodies as everyone will know had 340s, 340 SIXPAKs, 383, 440 with 4 or 6bbls and of course the 426 Hemi which unlike today's engines were very
few and far between.
They can't afford to put the Hemi under a limited amount of hoods as possible in todays world/market. They need money, something that will sell, enter the legend - the Hemi. The E-Bodies also had a huge range of colour options and add-ons available. These new cars kick arse, no doubt, they're awesome but to me anyhow, not in the same league. Good current day thrash cars but don't bank on getting anything back if you're thinking of buying 3 orange 6.1L Hemis and putting them in the garage for 30 years. The odd model may sell better but at the end of the day, like most modern cars (no matter the brand) they sell anything with "limited" or "special edition" badges on it to drive sales and interest, some are good ideas/cars, some are just badges.
