      I've owned a few new dodge trucks, I hopes it's safe to say I like it, because I do! I just really like the way the reliability of transmission has gotten better since the mid 90's.

        I remember when that building went up.
        If I recall you had a R/T Challenger 70,71?

        If it will pull my car trailer and the latest 62-65 B Body I might be dragging home, or going to fetch the neighbor’s ‘32 Ford with the $10,000 flathead that over heated making a Saturday morn biscuit run, who cares what they look like.....Look up MoPars 1962...........

        A few notes-

        The 93/94 Ram- That truck changed the truck industry esp design for ever.

        vw rabbit vs Omni- The first gen Omni/Horizon actually used vw/audi sourced 1.8l engine blocks!

        ...and I agree the truck design school seems to have come down with something previously known as "ugly van contest" syndrome.

        However, IMO the Ram is currently the least offensive despite having an early lead.

        It was my late little brothers' T/A Challenger, which I sadly don't own anymore.
        In fact, it was the source for the money that made Fred possible.
        Turns out, a T/A in need of full restoration is worth more than a GTX halfway done already...
        Good news is, that car is only a couple miles from me right now, in the hands of a gentleman
        I consider a friend (and had the wherewithal to do a proper job of restoring it).
        I have full visitation rights and right of first refusal should he ever decide to sell it.
        Still....that was a really tough call, but had I not made it, the car would still be in pieces in my garage -
        and Fred as we know him would not exist.

        In the end, I made what I thought was the best decision based on being a good steward for the T/A -
        I knew he'd have a much better home with my friend.

              Mine is. I just grabbed a picture of no car in particular off of the interwebs.

                Right!

                We just picked up a ‘20 Scat Pack Charger. Front end reminds me of a 70 Plymouth front end, RR and GTX.

                  Sadly, I had to settle for a 2020 R/T without a 392 since none were available back in June.:(

                            I've owned numerous 1973-1993 dodge trucks.

                            As far as I'm concerned nothing compares as far as stone ax reliability.

                            This is my current truck, and it has been hammered mercilessly, with a 360/833 OD.

                            I've had 2200 lbs in the bed and the only issue was that it crushed the tailpipes.

                            What happens to all the current model trucks and cars when their software flakes out in 10 or 20 years ?

                            I would like the comfort and convenience of a modern truck, but since I do not make a living with my truck, I'll stick with the old stuff.

                              Not quite. They were 1.7 l blocks with Chrysler heads
                              And daytime running lights weren't ripped off anyone. They were mandated.
                              Besides, motorcycles had them before cars.
