I like it.  These challenger/superbird things are kind of growing on me.  I could see driving this car to a show or a nice sunny day off, but I don't think I would feel comfortable being seen in it as a daily driver.

I am wondering why they use the Challenger for the mod.  Why not use a new charger?  Is it because it has four doors?

I would have to agree it's probably the 4 doors.

I guess it's sort of like back in the early 70's, people think the design is too radical...

I like it!   Love the wing conversions.

I do wish they had stayed true to the dodge theme.  A daytona clone would be better in my opinion.

However, the superbird ( plymouth ) is still better than the daytona ( dodge ) look in my opinion.

So, I understand why a dodge guy would want to have some plymouth provenance on his dodge!  :poopoke: :poopoke: :poopoke:

It just looks wrong, IMO. A new charger with a 2 door conversion would look much better.
