2009 Dodge Challenger Long Term Road Test


2009 Dodge Challenger R/T: In the Air Tonight

October 26, 2009

CotW_05.jpgChallengerHood_01.jpgAs a child of the 80's, I was struck by the visual richness of Miami Vice. One scene in particular stuck with me through the years. It was from the pilot episode, a Tuxedo-black Daytona Spyder zooming down the streets of Miami, with Phil Collins' In the Air Tonight playing in the background.

Here is my photographic homage to that scene with our Challenger R/T.

And here's the original scene, complete with kitschy 80's style and weak dialogue. Click through to see the other two shots. I really wish I had a stronger camera rig to get the nose back shot that Michael Mann had on the Daytona, though. And for the record, yes, I was listening to In the Air Tonight as I shot these.
