Maybe I'm getting into my Old Fart years, but despite the horsepower and dependability of the newer technology, I'll take old iron any day. 700 ponies are great, but in the real world I deal with pot holes, Amish buggies, cops and kids on cell phones who aren't paying attention... so I need don't need to do 160.
Plus I like the rumble and smell of the old iron. Nothing catches my ear like a rumbling muscle car or a radial airplane engine - old school!
Can the Hellcat waste me on the strip or on the interstate? Oh heck yeah!... but there's nothing on this earth cooler than a late 60's Mopar.
Yes but will Fiat still be make parts for them in 15 years and will the aftermarket pickup the slack on parts ?I guarantee the HC could be around in 50 years if the same amount of inflation adjusted dollars were spent on it as the 68!!!
The 68 was spent and used up.
And I ordered the HC the way I wanted it with a red gut to match my coronets original scheme.
Best of all the worlds.
And I'm envious of the 600/650 493" going into my brother's 70 rt/se Charger.
To be fair 'my' 440 is a sum of it's parts and those parts made sense when it was my dad's as performance wasn't as important to him.Sorry to hear "your" 440 , is a slug.
You could just solve the problem like chrysler did with the 6.2, put a blower on it.

The 383 in my fury is turbocharged, the 6.2 supercharged, the 440 eventually will be stroked. Best of all worlds to have ICE's of different flavors
