1970 Dodge Challenger
Made famous in its appearance in the 1971 film "Vanishing Point" and in Quentin Tarantino's "Death Proof", the 1970 Dodge Challenger is a muscle car icon and a seriously popular collectible today. The Challenger lives on with the SRT8, but we'd take a first generation Challenger over a new one every day, and especially if we could have one with the 7.2-litre RB V8, although we would settle for the 6.9-litre Hemi V8 version, if push came to shove.
The first-gen Challenger was available as a convertible or hardtop and with three gearboxes, a 3-speed manual, 4-speed manual, and 3-speed automatic. It was actually launched to compete against the 1967 Mercury Cougar, but Dodge went overboard with a car that wiped the floor with it in terms of luxury, practicality, and speed.
