    Oh, how I miss these exciting times when one looked forward each year to see what the new models held in store for us. Plus, it was fun to see these cars on the road and listen to them burn out and accelerate.

    The awesome high impact colors and odd and rare stripe packages are worth mention too I've also seen some high impact colored stripes that are pretty rare. My dad had a 70 r/t se challenger 440 mag 4 speed vitamin c orange with a yellow bumblebees stripe on the tail it was that way in 74 when he bought it

    NOBODY did muscle cars like Mopar. Had a 69 Roadrunner 383/727 auto(my favorite car I ever had) and a 73 Duster 340-4 speed. Even with the low compression 340 that featherweight Duster was really quick. It wasn't totally stock though. I bolted on headers and a more free flowing exhaust and shit canned the smog equipment and it was a totally different car than it was bone stock. The 340 Duster and Dart Sport 340 were maybe the fastest car you could still buy in 1973 other than an SD455 T/A. Ford and most of GM had nothing by that point and the 383, 440/6, and Hemi were gone. And the 440 4 barrel was just a heavy smog choked boat anchor by then like the Ford 429 and Chevy 454 had become

    Six pack or six barrel were only offered on 340 TA or AAR engines for 1970 and of course 1969 1/2 through 1972 440 cid engines not on the 383 cid

    Absolutely beautiful! Excuse me while I clean the drool from my mouth...
    Besides driving my various Dodge's and Chrysler's I've driven the other (as IF there's a comparison) makes of vehicles over the years, but my heart always brings me back to my beloved beautiful, sexy, fast, loud, and rebellious MOPARS!! I just can't stay away!

      I own both, Mopars and Pontiacs. If you are talking about performance then you would be wrong. Straight off the showroom floor the 440 powered cars were quicker and faster than the 400 or 455 powered Pontiacs. If you're talking quality of build then you might have a point. I've owned my '69 GTO since 1983 and I owned a '69 Charger R/T when I bought it. The 440 in the Charger was much quicker than the GTO and the Charger had A/C and power everything. The GTO didn't even have power steering or brakes. I sold the Charger and kept the GTO because it drove down the highway better and I knew I could put a 455 in it that was hopped up, which I did. But I still regret selling that Charger.

    The only two engines that got the 6pack/6brl arrangement was the 340 and 440. The 383 didn't ever get it from the factory.

    Drawbacks of Mostly Odd Parts Assembled Randomly:
    1: they're Junky. Seriously, the interiors and all the odds and ends were very shoddily made compared to GM and even Ford of that time
    2: Mopars can't turn
    3: They're heavy land yachts
    4: The motors are boat anchors compared to anything GM
    5: Speaking of motors, have fun paying premium for all parts. Cost MO for PARts!
    6: Prices for the cars in any condition are through the roof! Might as well just buy VIN and Fender tags at this point. For a good example of this, check out: tvclip.biz/video/WMdKR_TBka4/video.html
    7: Gas hogs, even compared to other muscle cars. The hemi's are a poor choice for a street machine. They are optimized for all out top end

    Every manufacturer has some or many great vehicles to offer! But Mopar really does rule.. and never owned a Ford or Mopar yet.
    Keeping as brief as possible, in 2003 I was 6 years old. HotWheels movie came out. Had a 1970 Plymouth Road Runner in it (and '55 Nomad and '59 XP-87 Stingray, and '63 Stingray Coupe,etc.) That Road Runner had quite abit of screentime and the car was absolutely awesome. I've had 10 vehicles, 5 were Pontiacs and I had a Camaro, all 70s cars, one 68 Pontiac. My favorite car of ALL TIME is the 1964 Shelby Cobra Daytona CSX2287, but my dreamcar is the '70 Road Runner all the way. 383, 440, 426 no matter. (Prefer a 440, though) It is INEVITABLE, I ABSOLUTELY WILL have that car. I literally have more Plymouth toys than Pontiac, which is kinda surprising. I love my T/As and such, but Road Runner all the way. Don't care for the Satellite, no need for a GTX. *road runner* is the only car I need. My "dream garage" has many things, but I'm sure it will turn out the way I plan, unless greater:
    '70 Road Runner, Burnt Orange, '69 A12 style hood 440 6 BBL
    '78 Trans Am, Martinique Blue
    '68-'72 Stingray
    2019 Toyota Tacoma TRD PRO 🇺🇸
    ....Those 2002 WS-6 Trans Ams would be a cool ZooM car. Didn't care for them at first, but grew on me. At least 1998-2002. 3rd gens suck. Will never appreciate a 3rd gen
    And a bicycle
    Actually would be cool to have a vintage Harley or Indian motorcycle, but I'm not really a motorcycle guy. I do like the style, though

    The 1971 indy 500 pace car was a Dodge Challenger The pace car driver was driving about 100 mph down pit row and hit the brakes. The car went sideways and slid into a photographer stand putting a bunch of people in the hospital. This was a brand new car. They were junk the day you picked it up from the dealer.

    • 1967davethewave
      1967davethewave 2 months ago

      @John Nix That is piss poor. But like I said, if you are saying that Mopar is the only car to ever have a failure form the factory then you are a Yankee. I am a mechanic with 35 years work experience mostly in GM dealerships. How about the '87 Firebird that had the steering box come loose with 85 miles on it because it was assembled with bad bolts that stripped the box when installed, or the '98 Buick that went 147 miles before it threw a rod because someone forgot to tighten a rod bolt? All I'm saying is if you go on a Mopar discussion with a bunch of Mopar fans just to call the cars crap you probably voted for AOC

    • John Nix
      John Nix 2 months ago

      @1967davethewave Only 2 of the brakes worked, both on the left side. The dealer who donated the car for use at the race was driving. If that ain't piss poor I don't know what is. F#@k Bernie. I spend all my time educating yankees.

    • 1967davethewave
      1967davethewave 2 months ago

      Yeah right, I'm sure that Mopar was the only make to ever have a brake failure in 1971 on a new car, lol! Don't you need to go solicit donations for Bernie or something and stay off the computer?

    Chrysler was the first to incorporate fully electronic ignition into all their cars beginning in 1973. It took two more years for the rest. No more fighting to get the perfect dwell angle and all but eliminated the need for frequent timing. Oh happy day.

    For the golden muscle car era 64-71, what if the Hemi was never built? Where would Mopar be? Take away just one engine, that's all.
    Could the 440 seriously compete with Chevy's 427 or Ford's 427? I kind of doubt it, it's heads couldn't breath enough to produce the necessary HP. The 383 was pretty much a 15 second dog. The 340, a fine high revving engine that could do well was limited to tough small block competition.
    Mighty Mopar in the day is really a romanticized fetish over one quite limited production engine.

    • Steve Donovan
      Steve Donovan 2 months ago

      @1967davethewave Horsepower. Dave, I'm not a Mopar hater I just don't relate to a car manufacturer for my self-esteem. I'm not insulting you. If you like the 440 then good, enjoy.

    • 1967davethewave
      1967davethewave 2 months ago

      @Steve Donovan Produced as much what? If you mean there were a lot of 396's produced you would be right. So there were also a lot of 383's produced and the performance between the 2 motors was similar until you stepped the 396 up to it's 375 horse version. The rectangular headed 375 hp version again gets into the rare category. The Hemi wasn't a highly produced engine but the 440 was and it had the performance. But a lot of Mopar guys from the old days say that there literally dozens of mildly tweeked 383 cars out every Saturday night burning up the local cruise spots and local drag strips. 440 Magnums and Commandos, 383 Magnums and Commandos, 440 6 packs and even 340 4bbl Demons, Dusters and 'Cudas were all know as fast cars back in the day. Mopar had wonderful marketing with things like "The Scat Pack" and high impact colors. Take the Hemi away and they still would have sold a buttload of cars. If you're a GM or Ford fan you might not be aware of all of the popular Mopar cars and engines but Mopar fans are.

    • Steve Donovan
      Steve Donovan 2 months ago

      @1967davethewave Chevy's 396 produced as much.

    • 1967davethewave
      1967davethewave 2 months ago

      Uh, the 427 Ford is way more rare than the 426 Hemi. The 427 Chevy is pretty common in the Corvette but was way more rare than the 426 Hemi in an actual muscle car (only in COPO Camaros, Chevelles and Novas). The 906 big block Mopar head flows about the same as most other muscle car heads from the era so I think you don't know what you're talking about.

      Only on the 340 in the AAR Cuda and Challenger T/A in 1970 and on the 440 in the A12 Roadrunner/Super Bee in 1969 and most B and E Bodies in 1970-71. I think the 440/6 mightve been an option in the Chrysler 300 Hurst and Plymouth Fury GT but not sure if any were actually built. Also there was actually a 440/6 Roadrunner and two 440/6 Chargers built in 72 before it was dropped as an option. Never knew that until recently

    We used to laugh at some of the Mopars, especially the winged Dodges.. We thought of them as gimmicky stupid looking cars. The six pack cars never ran worth a crap on the street as they were finicky and slow.
    Today, the same people who used to laugh, look at these cars and realize what we had back then and really appreciate them now.
