    Just a quick one
    I guess you can't copyright colour schemes but those two cars look very Mustang/Carol Shelby. Is that Dodge's way of saying they're after Ford (Mustang) market share? Or are they both under the same roof now? I've no idea where the US motor industry is these days

    Even though 392 is a nice number for a Hemi, why not 426?

    Nice, but I'd stil rather have a 1970 Dodge Challenger R/T. But that's just me;) Probably cost about the same?

    No Bucky, I agree....

    I'd also rather have a '70 Hemi Challenger or Hemi Cuda, both with shaker hood though, manual or automatic....doesn't bother me. 8)

    I wasn't implying that they should
    simply that I tend to recognise those livery schemes as Shelby/Ford

    Cool looking car. The Viper GTS cars used the same paint scheme. So did some Chevelles in the muscle car heyday.

    Some of the AMC AMX's that were called Big Bad colors had stripes going over the top too.

    You got the color name correct Lucky but at the factory it was known as Statutory Grape. No joke.

    I hear ya Njaco. I sure regret trading off my '70 Chevelle. But then again, my dad had a '55 Belair convertible and a '57 Belair hardtop......in '55 and '57. When he went into the Air Force, he had his dad sell them. :(
