There's an entire crop of neo-ponycars, including the Ford Mustang and Chevy Camaro. While there's a level of retro baked into each, the Challenger is the most nostalgic of the bunch, with the look and feel of the old days. From the blocky body and retro trim, to the rumbling Hemi V8, it's an extremely convincing time machine. If Pops was hot to prowl the street in a brand-new Challenger back in 1970, he can have his chance once again. One turn of the key, and all of a sudden, Nixon's still president, Archie Bunker's on TV and the Pentagon Papers are fresh in the news. As delightful as the nostalgia may be when you slip into the tuck-and-roll style seats and mash the pedal to the floor, the Challenger is still best on straightaways. Cornering will remind you that this is a big, heavy car, larger than the E-Body it pays homage to, with more than 4,000 pounds of mass. While it's relatively well behaved, the suspension has a tendency to float at speed and the heavyweight handling leaves the Challenger behind its reborn contemporaries. The big footprint does give you a large trunk, a comfortable back seat and makes for a nice highway cruiser.
