1970 Dodge Challenger Convertible vs. 2015 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat

Incredible as it seems, after gold was discovered in California in 1849, it was free for the taking. While I’m not quite old enough to remember those days, I can report that the streets were similarly awash with collector cars in the mid-1970s, and many were also practically free for the taking. That’s because at the time, the 1950s through 1970s models so coveted today were just old cars – often left in disrepair in side yards and alleys, carports, streets and driveways. They were in essence gold nuggets, begging to be harvested by enterprising youths. And my buddies and I were just that.
