Challenger Week: Here's A Few We Did Earlier

A Challenger on the front page of TTAC is like a blonde on the cover of Maxim: it gets all the nerdy dudes excited. Self included. So here are some of our most exciting Challenger reviews from years past!

Derek got his hands on a HEMI R/T Shaker and kind of liked it. Kind of.

Murilee Martin checked out the 392 SRT8 and was ironically impressed.

TTAC reader favorite Alex Dykes also reviewed the 392.

Automotive Traveler’s Richard Truesdell went to Willow Springs and ignored his mirrors for a very long time while I swerved and honked behind him. Thus, the one lap review of the 392.

Ed Niedermeyer was in fine Farago-wannabe form when he blasted the pre-Pentastar V6 model.

Last but not least, here’s the five-year-old review from when I took a Challenger R/T to Summit Point. I raced it against a Miata — and won.

    Speaking of Mr. Dykes... where's he been (wrt the pages of TTAC)?

      @tuffjuff You can find one of Alex's reviews on my website, I'm hoping to have more up in the future and to work with Alex more closely.

    I would say the Challenger is more like April Flores on the cover of Bizzare* than a blonde on the cover of Maxim. But there ain't a damn thing wrong with that. *Warning: The Google results from this search are potentially NSFW.

    Isn't there an old TTAC review wherein Lieberman rips on an SRT8 Challenger for not being much faster than a LeMons Sentra or something like that?

    Truly the best of the three Detroit pony cars. By an extremely large margin. What a good week.
