The photograph does not show the shaker hood at all well. Surely  there had to be a better picture in the Chrrysler press kit

Pony Cars...so named because the Mustang (pony) was the first.  The Plymouth Barracuda was out around the same time, although the first Barracuda was a Valiant model.  Then the followers:  Camaro, Firebird, Barracuda, Challenger, Javlin and arguably the AMX and the Dodge Dart of 64-66.   The formula was light weight and good handling (for the day), and although they started out with smaller engines and were raced as "trans-Am" class in SCCA racing with 305 cubic inches (max), it wasn't long before the big block V8's made their appearance.  The first really fast Challengers weren't a "5.7" or even a "392".  They were 440's and 426 Hemi sluggers.

Scat is probably not the best name to use.

I keep waiting for them to put in a full compliment of gauges then we are talking Pony/Muscle car, and now that Ford has dropped them in favor of video game nonsense, that only leaves the Camaro.  I've owned 6 MOPAR vehicles, so I like the brand, but they haven't put out anything in awhile that I want to buy.  Here's hoping they get it right with the new 'Cuda.

I've seen way better looking challengers on the road than that, not very good pictures of the shaker hood.

C'mon Man! Those black wheels are soooo boring. I'll be glad when that fad passes; that and those stupid flaming skulls people stick on too many otherwise 'hot' cars and motorcycles. I can't be too long before some guy that has skulls on his car of bike appropriately scents it with the smell of rancid wildlife road kill. That would be real 'street cred'.

I was lucky enuf to find the original '70 purple convertible that was used to promote the "Plum Crazy Challenger is no Shrinking Violet" magazine ad. Found it in '75 and still today is far more original than many of the "original" cars out there.  Don't drive it much but when I do the standard factory dual exhaust will still turn a few heads, even at an idle.  There's a lot of great muscle cars out there from the '60's & '70's but I still love my RT.
