instead of buying a high performance race car that people will respect?
Sounds like a stupid idea so far, cut the car in half and rename it and maybe it will pass as a custom racecar.
You know it would also be easier to supercharge a 2nd gen, instead of the 1st, most ppl dislike the look of the first gen anyways.
Even with that in mind, a twin turbo kit would cost more than any 2nd gen out there is worth and not have have any resale value or practicality in a 4 speed auto tranny.
HERE, HERE !!!!!
You speak blasphemy. First gens. are as beautiful as much as seconds (depending on your taste).
Changing times and concepts be damned.
You think a '69 'Cuda was ugly? How 'bout the Challenger, Charger, Coronet "Super Bee", etc.
Funny how those names are being brought back, and the new lines mimic the old for more recognition (marketing/sales, yes, but still).
If "most" people liked the second gen. better, why do we have a first gen. section with tons of posts from folks that have them?
There are some awesome looking second gens. on here and elswhere, but at the end of the day, personally, I think the seconds look like they got kicked in the ass, then got it cut off.
I don't care for the squared off rear.
My opinion is mine only, but to state that "most people dislike the first gen. anyway" is like saying "most people would rather have a dollar instead of 8 quarters"
