That's a great looking car, but I kinda prefer the pre-fastback style (pre-68) of the GM mid size car a little better.

Oh yes! That's real nice! There's just something about black lacquer on an automobile, that sets it apart.

My first car, 62 Olds Starfire. The interior was leather and chrome, power everything with buckets and center console. It had a 400 CI engine, about 6 mile to the gal if I remember.
I only had two baby moons so they went on the front. affraid

My Grandfather had this car back around 1964... I was 4 years old and still remember it. It was Antique White with the "Continental kit" too.

1957 Mercury Turnpike Cruiser.




It had a unique ventilation system with vents at the top front of the roofline and a "Breezway" rear window. My Grandfather used to tell me how a carload of his buddies could all smoke cigarettes while driving in a rainstorm.. just by opening the roof vents and cracking the rear window down a couple of inches.

Mark,

If you look very close you will see the GM and Fords are actually moving as well it's just the Challenger is that much quicker!

Seriously though I love all makes and models, heck I currently own 2 Chevy's a Dodge and an MG.

I even drove Mustangs for a couple years.... Shh

Roddie,

That Riviera is a beaut! But we both know that Challenger would give it a bare bottom spanking at the strip. tongue

My first car was a 1969 Chevrolet Kingswood station wagon that was my Dad's. It was originally this red color (mine had a roof-rack though.. and plain steel wheels/hubcaps) I "spray-bombed" it black... ditched the hubcaps, put chrome trim-rings/lugnuts on the wheels, a Holley replacement 2bbl and "Cherry Bomb-Q" turbo muffler. The 327 V8 it had, was a great motor. An old buddy of mine (God rest his soul...) named my car; "The Steel Pussy"...  Laughing

In my opinion there is no sweeter sound than a 327 with Cherry Bombs, add a mild cam and even better. I used to idle mine down so you could hear each cylinder firing.
Aaaaaahhhhh that was fun.
