For the records, Corvette is considered Americas sports car, the Mustang Americas pony car, the Challenger, Barracuda, AMX and Javelins were pony cars.
Wasn't the AMX a sports car since it was a two seater? BTW, my favorite pony car was the 340 Cuda. This new Challenger looks more like the Cuda than the Challenger. And that's ok with me.

Should be interesting to see cars which look somewhat like the good old days of late 60's and early 70's. By 2008, perhaps the Challenger ( 'Cuda ) and the Camaro are being produced to challenge the Mustang. Wish there was an AMX or a Javelin car too. And gone is the original make of a muscle car, Oldsmobile. The rocket 88 model with a power V8 was the first lighter weight car which could have been called a muscle car. The car dominated NASCAR for three years running back in the early 50's, I think it was. Anyway, most think of the modern cars, like the 442 era.
Will there be a 'Cuda? Can't a Chrysler use that name just as well. I realize Plymouth is gone. There sure were many variations of the Barracuda over time. Ah, the good ol' days.

#251 of 526 Where do I sign-up????

I've always said that if I were a few years older, I'd have a Hemi Cuda/Challenger. I was too young to go to a dealership back then. Now is my chance. When will we be able to put an order in? I've had numerous Mopars through the years and won't buy anything but Mopar and definitley would never buy any of those hamster powered imports.

Concur 100%. Was that a Challenger that Don "the Snake" Prudhomme raced against that Duster in 1970? Hells no! It was a '70 CUDA baby! Was my favorite white Hot Wheel funny car a Challenger? No sir! How 'bout that silver Sizzler from '71? Yup, that was a Cuda, too. That's the car I'm going to buy, WHEN Chrysler makes it! All they need is a single bezel headlight setup, cleft grille, straighten the accent line on the rear quarters, and my favorite, the 3 horizontal tail lights ala '70 Cuda. I'm ready to relive the dream! Check the flashback: http://www.snakeracing.com/photos/old_school.asp

Man, I'm annoyed about seeing these new 'Cudas, Challengers, Chargers, Camaros and even the 2005+ 'Stangs.
My first new car was an '85 Mustang GT. Loved it! Always wanted another big V8, but, with gas costing what it does, and, let's face it; it's not likely to go down to the old levels, it just seems like a very bad idea to buy a car that gets such poor fuel mileage. I fully expect gas to cost $5/gal within two years.
It's like 1974 all over again, sad to say.
