The 1960s were the most memorable times for Dodge and this is the time when they placed the Dodge Challenger R/T. it was a direct competitor to the Chevy Impala SS that was introduced in 1969 but the Chevy was a hidden muscle, not like the Challenger out it the open. When people saw the Challenger R/T on the TV commercials they were aware that they are about to buy an American muscle that is going to be performing like the race cars at the time. And they still were buying them, a lot. Even though the MPG was a thing to show off with the Dodge Challenger R/T, the pleasure that this car placed on the table was overseen by the fuel pumps.
People didn’t care about the money that they are going to spend on gas as long as that powerful HEMI engine under the hood was running like a racer and sounded like a racer too. The 1960s were the golden age of the American Muscle cars. These are the years when all the muscle cars got popular and they were largely bought by the masses. Driving in one of the 1970 Challenger R/T was the dream of the average American worker. And as the prices that Dodge placed on their cars were not that big as nowadays, people were able to buy one and still have money for some upgrades too. First to come were the rims that they were changing and after that the age of customization and tuning came along.
Nobody is going to forget the streets of America full of the Dodge Challenger R/T series, running wild at the traffic lights trying to make a street race worth without the police chasing them. Now we only get to see a Challenger R/T so rare but it is still worth seeing one.
