2009 Dodge Challenger R/T: Who's Your Daddy?

March 29, 2009

Driving home Friday night in our still new 2009 Dodge Challenger R/TI spotted this 1971 Challenger parked on the street near our Santa Monica office and could not resist the photo op. The car is not an R/T,but it is in awesome unrestored condition and appears to still be somebody's daily ride. The vinyl top, rallye wheels and hood pins are cool bits, and I swear that's the original paint.

Notice how the race car style gas door is on the passenger side on the '71, but on the driver's side on the new Challenger.

By the way, am I the only one that thinks the old car looks better?
