Hey everyone...

Now that the Bullitt is out and since the Camaro, TA, and FB are on their way out, Dodge might be wise to release a new Charger into the upcoming vacuum. I know my brother would like that a lot. Then Bullitt owners like myself could encounter something worth racing.

While we're on the subject of new and limited releases... How about a new "Eleanor" for 2003? Yellow with black striping?

Just some whimsical thoughts...

I just hope that they don't do it a disgrace by slapping a 4 or 6 cylinder in it. If I remember right, didn't they have a Charger in the early 90's that was a little bitty thing. It was about the size of the Daytona and Sundance. Anyone know what I'm talking about?

I remember reading an article on the new Charger concept. It had a real mean look to it, but if I remember right.... it ran off of natural gas or something. Of course their not gonna put that into production, just makes you wonder what else their gonna change. (Us Bullitt owners know about that)

My dad used to own a 70 or 71 Charger with a 440 6 pack. He ended up giving it up when I came along. :sad: He loved that car and I know it would drive him crazy to see it with anything less than a v8 now. As much as I love my Bullitt, I'm still an old Mopar fan. I'd like to see some more, affordable, Mopar products on the road, i.e. not the Viper. If I remember right, the Viper originally sold for around $45,000 and was supposed to be the new "affordable" sports car.

To bad they aren't going to make it. It kinda looks neat. I could go for something like that. (only if it is not wrong wheel drive)

CoolerKing, yes the early 80's Charger was a 2.2 4 cylinder. It was the same platform as the Plymouth 024 if I remember correctly. Dodge did have a wicked commercial when it came out, though, showing a 68-70 Hemi Charger coming at the screen then the new 2.2 Charger coming around and along side of the Hemi. Let's do the math: 7.0 liter V8 vs 2.2 liter I4. Who passed who?

And knowing Dodge, if they do bring the Charger Concept car to life and do a tribute car like our Bullitt, it won't be the black Charger from Bullitt, but an orange Charger with a Confederate flag on the roof (Dukes of Hazzard).

LOL. It would be nice to see it come back as a muscle car again, BUT NOT ORANGE!! A metallic orange maybe, but not orange! jk :smile:
