Father and Son Dodge Challengers – Corona, California

March 10th, 2010 by Stu

You don’t see this everyday – papa Challenger, in all his original glory, alongside the younger, svelter offspring. Harder to believe, the cars are painted in near identical color schemes. But this automotive encounter wasn’t planned, I swear. Our Pal Andy was cruising in his Hemi Orange SRT-8 (left) and caught an eyeful of vintage Mopar staring back at him (right). Driving by without taking a picture is like sticking up a bank and not taking the money. Perhaps the best part, this is not the first time we have spotted such a righteous muscle car pose. Hopefully it won’t be the last.

Thanks Andy! Great find.

  • Ahhh, serendipity… Cool pic…. but I’d say that the Papa Challenger is actually the svelte one. Much like in our society today, Junior needs to go on a diet.

  • Yoav – nicely said my man.

  • yeah, the original one is way cooler…

  • i just read that honda went back to the drawing board with the next generation Civic because it was to heavy and dimensions had grown too much – i think other automakers should follow their lead and improve cars without making them bigger every time there is a redesign.
