It was time to face facts. My middle aged body could not keep up with the timeless lines of my 440 Barracuda. It was hot to the extreme, uncomfortable, and cornered worse than my Suburban.
Fuchsia...The perfect color! Unusual and as hot as it gets. Aside from the exterior pallet, the interior was the perfect compliment of white leather, fuchsia stitching, and led lighting bliss. This car is what a true muscle car should be. Obnoxiously beautiful!
The performance of the car was true to the Edmunds' review, fast yet comfortable to the extreme.
The Canadian plant that built her absolutely botched the paint. Actual drips under the door mirror, and dry haze along some seams. (?)
Slapstick shifter, a true joy to drive.
Monster brake calipers, and the ear candy that only the Hemi can produce.
The car is a dead on tribute to the 70's offerings.
In this day and age, I was shocked how bad the paint application on the Challenger (Fuchsia) really is.
I wonder if it was systemic, or limited to the small run of this unusual color? We alumni who bought the Fuchsia,
paid a premium to get it.
Too Bad, it is reminiscent of the quality applied by Earl Sheib of yesteryear!
