I have owned every model year of charger made, except the 1966 and 67 models and they are beautiful cars as everyone above suggested.
I wished now I would have made keepers out of all of them, but my favorite models were the 68-70 style.
The 1971 to 74 models still had the performance looks. If you own one of these classic American muscle cars, hang on to it, if you're like me, you will regret it if you don't.
"Yeah, Chargers rule!"

The 1968 dodge charger r/t is my favorite car in the whole world. especially in black. I'm almost getting my licensce and it would be an awesome car to have, except for the fact that it's an American car and I'm in australia...
So I am trying to get an Aaustralian valiant charger E49 instead, but I'm still trying to find one...

I want a 69 Awfully bad.
I liked the Chrome split and tail light design better than the 68's, but id take a 68 to.

I live in SW England and we don't really get too many muscle cars here unfortunately, especially Dodge Chargers as they are old now and probably pretty rare.
On my way home from work today I glanced briefly into an industrial estate and had a moment of instant recognition and excitement as I spotted the back end of a charger.
As these have always been my favorite cars since I was a kid (probably because of the General Lee), I quickly pulled over and turned around to go and inspect it.
I was not disappointed, it was like looking at one of my childhood hero's. I don't know what year the car was, but it looked as mean as I had expected them to. The guy who brought it just had it imported from the states, he said the engine needed serious work. It looked tidy though and it was done out in lime green and black. I filmed it on my video phone and consider myself lucky to have actually seen one down here.
What I wouldn't do to get my hands on one of them. They are the toughest looking cars ever made, Dodge got it just right.

Bought an R/T new. Still warms my heart to think of my youth and that beautiful machine. Factory ordered I left off the bumblebee stripes to keep it a sleeper, but the square dumps told the whole story. The 440 Magnum and auto trany ate GTOs and Chevy Zs like they were standing still. Am now looking for a (restored) stock for my son, within a reasonable price range. (Paid only about $5700.00 for mine in late '67) Lukewarm about the 2006 version, because in my opinion the styling doesn't hold a candle to the gorgeous '68. Also owned a '70 R/T. Oh well,... it certainly was not a '68.

I bought my 68 R/T back in 1970 sure wish I still had it.
I beat the heck out of the car like any 18 year old.
And talk about top end with the 323 gear I hit 145 with 5 of us in the car, well according to the speedo.
I now have a 69 coronet R/T I bought in 1986 and love the car though I wish I had the old charger back.
What can I say I love mopars.
