    ...the more it grows on me. I picture it with a drop in classic Mopar colors like Plum Crazy with retro style black Hemi stripes on the back and it looks right.

    Am I insane? :hs:

    id like it better as a 2dr with some long ass doors like the old muscle cars had...

    where you had to be 5' + from anything in order to open it enough to get out :)

    It would actually look cool in that bright lime green, yellow, pink and purple color the Mopar classics wore. DCX should offer those. :eek4:

    I am just not a fan of the 4-door. If they want to ride the whole retro craze, they should do it right and get some nasty coupes out in the 60's colors like you said.

    I didn't say anything about the doors, in fact they're smarter doing a sedan since coupes are a bust in the US. Just ask Pontiac (the Mustang is the exception).

    I would have if it looked like the concept, but I don't hate it anymore.

    The Charger should be the GTO and the GTO should be the Charger. If you get what I mean, forgetting that they are made by different companies of course.

    I think its crap. First of all, it doesn't even remotely look like a Charger, it just looks plain awful, and almost looks like a BMW in that ugly, flat, cut-off front. Also, it's a 2-Door! They should have just named it something different...

    I was visiting my folks last night and showed my father these pictures. He likes it, and think it resembles the old Chargers. It does.

    the charger's not supposed to be a sedan. Knock it down to 2 doors, crunch it a bit and it's still meh
