    My A, B & E. My first love is to the B-body. A&E are really Pony cars. B-bodies are the only legitimate Mopar muscle car.

    This debate of course is highly argumentative. But I think I'm right. The term "Muscle car" gets thrown around too easily in today's discussions.

      I love the look of a 70/71 E body (not the 72-74 though), love the engine and paint/graphic options, but the interior looks cheap and unwelcoming. The tuff steering wheel and pistol grip are the money, but the rest of the interior is unimpressive.
      I'd still like one though. A T/A Challenger, or a Kowalski looking Challenger, or a 70/71 Hemi Cuda.

        E-bodies are great to look at but I’d rather drive a B. Similarly 68-70 B-bodies look and drive great but the Early B-bodies have better interior fit and finish. A bodies never did much for me, 68-69 Barracudas excepted. A few C-bodies I’ve liked too, ‘66 300, ‘67 Polara. In convertible form C-bodies are a blast.

        Ok I think I'm going to donate my '70 Challenger and get a tax right off. Not!!!!:lol::lol:
        It's got the most sexiest Ass of any Mopar. The way the tail lights fill the back panel.
        I do miss my '70 Charger. That car was a really nice driving car. I think the perfect recipe is one A,B, and E. :thumbsup::steering:

          I picked up my 71 Charger R/T that I got from my friend. He brought the car back from the Arizona desert, it's rust free and ready for blocking and paint. The car was EV2 Hemi orange with a white vynal top. 440 auto,ac power windows and disc brakes. 20210522_111417.jpg 20210522_131726.jpg 20210522_155949.jpg

            Almost all of my B Bodies are second or third generation Chargers, except for this one, it's a 66 Belvedere. 20210522_091440.jpg 20210522_091450.jpg 20210522_091504.jpg 20210522_112512.jpg
