This an interesting, albeit love/hate sort of car. I have to admit that when I first saw this thing roll past, a few days before I shot these photos, I thought to myself, “Are you kidding me?”. However, up close the car is really well done and it kind of grew on me after I was able to look at it for a while. I can certainly appreciate where this car is coming from, and I give the owner credit for doing a great job on it. I still find it a little forced, and a little too short compared to the real Plymouth Superbird, which I saw in traffic at the same time as this car. This new Superbird certainly turns heads though, it will get you noticed for better or worse. I can’t fault someone for making their idea happen though, so I’m glad this exists.

The Challenger is big heavy and comparatively underpowered compared to many of its rivals, but for some reason I find myself still loving it. This video from Motor Trend does a good job of summing up why the car is still so cool despite lagging behind somewhat on performance.
There is a lot of bickering that goes on between car enthusiasts about cars of different regions, saying European cars are this, American cars can’t do that, Japanese cars are this, etc. With the advent of the Internet this bickering has only expanded and now people are arguing their views with folks all over the globe. While it is interesting to witness, there is a huge amount of ignorance and a lack of appreciation (on everyone’s part) for how different cars came to be the way they are. I am starting this mini series here to take a look at how the automobile developed in different parts of the world, and hopefully enlighten some of the very opinionated people out there so that they may at least respect cars from all regions and their purposes.

Ever since Dodge rebooted the Challenger in 2008, muscle car enthusiasts have been absolutely rejoicing. From the ho-hum V6 model (which, despite its faults, does sell) to the tire-annihilating SRT8, the lineup has always drawn my attention. Meanwhile, across town, the boys at Chevy created the hot-selling new Camaro, which, with 432 horsepower from the SS, makes a clear (and powerful) case for itself. The SRT8 happens to be one of the best performance bargains on the market right now, but the Camaro SS may be even better. Read the rest of this entry »

Check out Motor Trend’s comparison of old and new Detroit metal
Nothin quite like these cars, especially the old ones, they just have a character that is all their own.
