1968 Dodge Charger R/T 440 from North America
Just a big red toy.
Nothing the buyer of a 30-year-old muscle car shouldn't expect. Front end worn out. Valve guides worn. Transmission shot. Incorrect parts everywhere. Cruel and unusual paint job in the engine bay, courtesy of previous owners who were apparently lacking a complete set of chromosomes.
It's all fixed now, no big deal.
Compared to the Charger, modern cars have lower emissions, better handling and brakes, better gas mileage, and are quieter and safer.
I couldn't care less. The Charger is a beautiful car and a blast to drive. It gets plenty of waves and shouts of "Nice car!"
Just don't try to drive a four-speed and eat a Big Mac at the same time...
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

I once owned a '68 Charger, and I too felt like a bad-ass, that is until I blew two cylinders in it and couldn't get it repaired due to lack of funds.But, the one thing I did learn was that a car of that caliber, was not to be abused, but to be taken care of properly. If I had done this, I'd still be behind the wheel of my '68 383 V8 kick-ass machine, named Charger, by Dodge. So take care of yours, and you won't end up like me full of regrets. Thank You.
