Barrett-Jackson 2011: A tale of two Challengers *Update: w/video

2010 and 1970 Dodge Challengers at Barrett-Jackson 2011 – Click above for high-res image gallery

A 2010 Dodge Challenger would be a wonderful addition to any garage. A limited-edition version painted Furious Fuchsia is an excellent way to pay homage to the Challengers of yore. Another way to pay? Buy lots 1251 and 1251.1 at the 2011 Barrett-Jackson auction; a 2010 Dodge Challenger SRT8 listed as #135 out of 400 Furious Fucshia examples and a 1970 Dodge Challenger T/A wearing a similar paint scheme.

The two Challengers are being auctioned off together and the winning bidder will have a garage that Mopar fans across the country will drool over. The 2010 Challenger is fully loaded, sports the same pink, black and white color combination as the 1970 example and has just 1 mile on the odomeeter. The 1970 Challenger T/A has a 340 six-pack V8 under the hood and it's paired with a four-speed manual transmission. The car is a numbers-matching example and comes loaded up with options.

Since the 2011 Barrett-Jackson Scottsdale auction has so far been a middle-finger to the recession, we expect this double-car lot to fetch a handsome sum. Make your guesses in the comment section... we're hoping to see $200,000... but we may be a little high.

Check out the official auction listing for the 2010 Challenger and the 1970 Challenger T/A, and head on over to Speed to watch live streaming coverage of all the festivities.

*Update: Video of the Challengers crossing the block is available after the jump.
