Ive owned tons of cars over the past 20 years, just about any hot European sportscar a crazy car nut would want from Alfas, Healeys and Jags to Porsche and Ferrari. However, I have NEVER owned an American muscle car. I actually know very little about them, and for some unknown reason always sorta looked down on them. I think that attitude is changing. I have a guy who seems to want my 308 more than I do. I had pretty much decided to keep it, but now im leaning toward selling it. That of coarse got me to looking around at other cars. Someone I got to looking at muscle cars. If your going to mess around.... why mess with anything but the big dogs, right? So I started cruising the MOPARs on ebay. Hmmmmmmmmmm 1969 Dodge Charger R/T with a 440 6-pack and 4 speed. Somewhere around $35K it seems. Maybe more. Maybe lots more, I really dont know. Big power..... no brakes. It has a rear seat. Its bound to be loud. Hemi? Sure...... $125K... Uhhhhhh NO. The Charger sure is a mean looking car. Then again, so is the Barracude from around '69 to '71! Hmmmmmmmmm 440 and 4 speed 'Cuda anyone? Am I losing my mind? What to look for in these cars? Where to start to learn about them? Whats a "fender tag"? Are they junk? Should matching numbers and such really be worth 3 times as much? Would a Ferrari/Porsche kind of guy be happy laying long black marks with a huge V8?
