Alright, I'm a studying engineer and the owner of 1969 Roadrunner. I have been working on a project to get the Roadrunner back on the streets. The new car will be loosely based on the Interpid/LHS body style, but it will be a true-to-life muscle car with a big block V-8 also making its return and two doors, not four. There will be a bare-bones version available, as well as a top-of-the line model that can compete with even the imported luxary cars such as Lexus and Jaguar. There would even be a Superbird version. Mopar needs to take the momentum it's got and the shifting of the market to get on top of the industry. The Roadrunner would help. Of course, to be correct, the Plymouth name would have to be reborn as well, unless the Roadrunner were to be made independent of any brand like the Prowler is. This is no joke. I have everything drawn up, and I'm working on making a 3D model of it as we speek. For about $50K I could probably make a rough prototype. I need to know if there is interest though, if there isn't, then I won't be able to make it work, so why bother for other than a personal version? No offense to Dodge, 'cuase I love 'em to death, but the new Charger is going to flop. It has none of the mistique of the old Charger and the only thing to make it appear as one is the nameplate. To me it looks more like a 4-door 'Cuda. Look at what happened to the GTO? No nostalgia, no reference to the past:: no sales... So what about it, is there interest? Should I pursue this? Just a question for all of you out there...

I think it would be awesome! I don't know much about the auto industry, but nostalgia def. sells (i.e. thunderbird/mustang vs GTO - huge sales differences)
If I had an extra 50G, I would be game, awesome car, and it sounds like the plans are really good too!
