They have the names with ugly product to put the label on. The new Charger is no classic in the making.

It depends on which one. Only the '68-'70 ones were good looking. '66-'67 were okay but somewhat odd, and '71-'80s were all horrible, ugly monstrosities.

68-70 was the best, mainly 68/69 didnt like the 70 wrap around grill chrome trim. 71s are cool too, no 68-70 but its a Charger. 75+ was a waste. 66/67 was a decent start. 68/69 wasnt just the best Charger...it was the best car design there ever was in American history to this day.

How lame would a '68-'70 Charger be with Auto-Stick?
You know, probably 90-95% of those came with autos. Manuals are not a good solution for a true muscle car like the old Chargers. Do you have any idea how much effort the clutch pedal required? More than you would want to cope with for more than a 5 mile commute, that's for sure. Also, the automatic cars were often faster because the Torqueflite was such a good tranny.

So, my question would be, can you imagine how lame a '68-'70 Charger would be with a 4-speed?

(runs out to check) Damn, my 68 Cougar XR-7 390 has a C6 in it, might as well burn it:(

(resolves to spend more time in the 99 Cougar forums, freaking out about how it doesn't match the one in my garage)

(Then decides "Screw it, I'll just find a car I LIKE, and hang out there")

Bye now, Swif:) Go hang out at the GTO forums.

+ 90% Came with 225/318/383 2bbl engines with weenie 14x5wheels and 78 series tires under those bulging fenders, kind of lame. Everone remembers the Hemis, they only built handfuls of them, and even the 440's were a minority back in the day. even the 68-70s look pretty lame in pea green with those skinny little tires and full hubcaps.

How lame is a 225 3 spd (On the column!!) 69 Charger with G78-14 inch tires and dogdish hubcaps in pea green with a green interior! Ugh, but they probably built more like that than Hemi 4spd lol Murf
