Click above for a high-res gallery of the Dodge Challenger R/T Classic

For the most part, the lineup at the Chrysler stand here in Detroit is like an advertisement for Zoloft. There are a few exceptions, however. The blue Ram R/T is one, and here's another: the Dodge Challenger R/T Classic. As appearance packages go, this one's a winner. 20-inch Torq-Thrust replicas fill the wheel wells, old-school R/T stripes run down the flanks, and best of all, the classic script Challenger badge adorns each fender. Hey Chrysler -- they should all get this treatment. As you can see, the one parked on the Detroit floor is painted HEMI Orange. We'd order the B5 Blue. Ultimately, it's cool either way.

      Perfect. Simply perfect.

      B5 would be my choice as well, until the unlease Plum Crazy or Sublime :D

      R/T, 6speed, gas prices be damned.

        Memphis, the nice thing is that gas prices don't have to be damned, the R/T 6-speed gets 25 mpg on the highway :)
        • 6 Years Ago
        my pick would be sublime. and with gas slowly rising i totally agree- gas prices be damned
        • 6 Years Ago
        Plum crazy: +1

      White, R/T. No strips.

      Make sure KOW is preset.

      Thx.

        KOW probably moved to FM though. You also may want to grow some sideburns with that ride.

        Forgot to add that I love how it looks, but it would have been nice if they made it a proper sports car with good handling and much lower weight

      Here's the problem with Detroit. They're still building yesterday's cars today. No one (or at least very few people) are still interested in Chargers and the like. Detroit needs to move on.

      Mopar needs to start offering matching small diameter wheel pairs for the rear, so you can mount up some proper DOT drag radials. Rally wheels would be cool, too. I really like the styling tweaks in this package.

      Got to love that vintage color trim.

      Tell Chrysler to cut the crap and tell us when the hell you can order one. I’ve been asking since sept and get the same crap from every single dealer..... I don’t know, I don’t know, I don’t know......well maybe ill spend my money somewhere else and "I don’t know" why your dumbass went out of business!!!!

        If it makes you feel any better, I get the same thing when I ask about the Suzuki Equator at the local Suzuki dealership. It's just the recession, all these vehicles on the lots mean that dealers are reluctant to order new ones they might not sell.

      The AutoRama happens in February!

      what's up with the Mustang wheels on this thing?? Mustang V6 wheels, to add insult to injury
      • 6 Years Ago
      Best in class ground clearance.
      • 6 Years Ago
      Oh man oh man, the cursive font nameplates, the RT paint stripes, chrome fuel filler, lack of nonfunctional spoiler...

      This thing is classy.
