well, out of the given choice, it would be the Mustang for me too, although it would help to know which models we're talkin about here. As I presume its the V8's of all of em, then it'd still be the mustang! It jsut looked so much better and more modern than its rivals of the day. The other were just too huge and ponderous.

Hey aadix,
I came across this Dodge Charger at Mumbai's Chor Bazaar about six years ago. The car was fairly well kept and everything seemed to be working fine. The interiors were original and good too. However, its taxes were not paid for 2 or 3 years and its tyres were mediocre . The guy was asking for Rs. 40,000, but, I was sure I could beat him down to 25K or so. I would have surely bought this beast, but, for two things: 1. I wasn't working and earning anything then and 2. My parents were away on a long vacation. When I went back to Chor Bazaar after two weeks, the behemoth had disappeared. *
Cheers,
Addy.

P.S. Locate all your favourite American musclecars over here: Classic Americana
For my sake, check out the 1958 Dodge Kingsway. My grandpa owned one.

Hey chargerman,

Welcome aboard. Trust me, you are a lucky chap to own american muscle from the initial days. The charger has the most aggressive look of any muscle cars from that era. Seen that awesome example in the movie "Bullitt"?

Hey Chargerman,

Welcome aboard!!

Go to the Announcements Section and click on the link about posting photographs.

As for the sound...hmm...maybe you could try renaming it from .wav or .mp3 to .jpg and uploading it on imageshack (as mentioned in the link above).... or just upload it onto an angelfire page?

cheers

I know what you are talking about. With legends like the Charger...its not really what the car can do. Its how the car makes you feel.

And awesome sticker you got there..
