I love this car! It's Dodge's Best! (Besides the Viper, of cou

Discussion in '1970 Dodge Challenger R/T' started by GIWASAViperGuy, Sep 19, 2002.

  1. I have a 1/25 model of this car that I can't seem to find the time to put together. lol 425 horsepower! This only disappointment in this car is that it doesn't have more hp that torque. p.s. what color should I paint my model?

    I like chargers better,I think it'd look cool with a darkish green and black racing stripes.

    425 HP was an understatement by dodge, and more torque than horsepower isn't such a bad thing with a car of this size <A BORDER="0" HREF="http://www.supercars.net/emoticons.html"><IMG BORDER="0" SRC="http://speed.supercars.net/cboardhtml/emoticons/wink.gif"></A>

    duh! *smacks self in head* I meant to say that it's too bad that it didn't have more torque than hp. sorry

    Challengers are better for four reasons:

    1. smaller - fit in garage/driveway, whereas charger doesnt.

    2. lighter - faster, handle better.

    3. better looking - enough said.

    4. i have one

    The Viper is the better looking car, but here's some stats that may surprise you!!

    When the HEMI was first introduced in 1968, it was in the '68 HEMI 'cuda, and only had one engine package, rated at 450 hp(really 500hp), rather than two. Later, chrysler introduced a second HEMI, called the Street HEMI, used for better street performance than what the '69 Race HEMI offered. However, the original '68 HEMI 'cuda only weighed 3000 lbs!! This makes it THE fastest 1/4 mile time Dodge has ever produced, and that includes the Viper!!

    I like Charger's slightly better for some reason. This Car is still good though.

    Aswsome 1/4's get cranked out of this machine i have found. They're r cheap to. Restoring is a bit of a ***** though. Me freinds got one and it sounds like a voice from above in an exagerated tone. Just sex i say . . .
     
  12. Re: I love this car! It's Dodge's Best! (Besides the Viper, of

    Theyre not cheap... i bought a Challenger R/T without an engine for $5000. It was originally built with a 383 magnum. This car is WAY more expensive to rebuild than a Camaro or Mustang. Challenger were the most rare and expensive Dodge ever built.
     
  13. Re: I love this car! It's Dodge's Best! (Besides the Viper, of

    You got that right!

    I bought my mint condition '66 Impala with a 454 bored and stroked to 468, COMP Performance parts 400 tranny etc for 11 grand...The same condition Challenger would be twice as much....
     
  14. Re: I love this car! It's Dodge's Best! (Besides the Viper, of

    Challengers...... You gotta love them. But are they the most rarest of the bunch? No. A lot of Challengers were made durin 70-74. R/T's T/A's a lot of other differant variations. Just like its sister car, the Cuda. But what is the rarest of the rarest? Ehh well it depends on your own opinion. But i mean, when was the last time you saw a 1970 Plymouth Superbird? Or a 1967 Hemi GTX? Or a 1970 AAR Cuda? OR a 1970 Hemi Coronet R/T Convertable? (most rarest mopar ever built. Rated by Mopar Muscle. Only 2 were built). Challengers and Cudas are both one the greatest aspects of our culture. Pure hard driven muscle. Though, they were one of the most abundant types of cars you can get. The only thing that i dont like about e-bodies is that everyone or mostly everyone thinks they were the fastest of Dodge or Plymouth fleet. Or you will find somone who has a Hemi Cuda or Challenger, but when you go and look at the vin number and realize the car should have a 318 in it than the Hemi, you start to get a lil pissed. Not another clone! But next time just think on which mopars you havent seen in a long time. Then those are the rarest.
