Car Spotlight: 1970 Dodge Challenger R/T

When I hear the term "American Muscle",  this very car comes to mind. The 1970 Dodge Challenger R/T 426 HEMI. I love these old MOPAR cars, though you wouldn't know it based on my post history...


Of all the colors you could get the Challenger in, this, known as "Plum Crazy Purple", is my favorite.

.

This car had the legendary NASCAR-developed 426 Hemi V8 making 425hp and 490lb-ft of torque.

.

Looking at the rear of the car, you notice a few features that are carried over to the current Challenger. The taillamp shape and the rectangular exhausts, for example.
