General Comments:

1971 Dodge Charger Super Bee

This is the funnest car I have ever owned. I used to be a Chevy guy. Since I have ventured into the world of MoPar back in 'the early 90's, it's MoPar or no car now baby!

This car is a great example of what America used to deliver: POWER - PERFORMANCE - STYLE - QUALITY!

Put a Dodge in your garage!

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
