I love seeing wagons. Love seeing stuff that's out of the ordinary & built beautifully! Congratulations mate! Fine example & awesome work! Well worth all those years of trouble during it's build. Persistence has well & trully paid off 👍👍
Cheers Cliff

Dragfreak... You're entitled to your opinion. You're also entitled to purchase & spend money on a beater to try to be better than any super car, for considerably less money. You wouldn't be the first & you won't be the last to do something like that.

Take for example Peter Klutt's Super Cuda. Built to rival & compete against the Ferrari Enzo - A super car. I believe he spent well over $300K to build the Cuda. I'm a Mopar guy & I love that Cuda.... But... The Cuda, in 10, 20, 30+ years isn't going to be worth anymore, and probably less actually, than the $300+K he put into it. The Enzo, in today's market is worth well over $1 million. In 10-20-30+yrs.... It's going to be worth anywhere north of $5-10million. This my friend is the difference between a stock supercar & a custom made supercar wannabe.... 😉

But then there's the whole "I put enough money into my Mustang/Camaro/Challenger to purchase a stock Ferrari/ Lamborghini/ Porsche only to be able to beat a STOCK super car" argument. It all boils down to this: Get what you want with your money to make yourself happy, but don't forget there will always be someone with a faster car.

I was kind of expecting the Mustang to be on that list.


Funnily enough so did I Harry. It would have to make a Top 20 list, surely?

Just makes me laugh that everyone thinks this car will be a world beater with 707 hp. Most forget it's almost 4500 lbs. don't get me wrong. I will very likely get one as it's a bad habit for me.


Far from it. I don't think it's a World beater, but neither is the Mustang or Corvette or Camaro. There are way too many foreign exotics such as any Lambo, Ferrari, Pagani, Bugatti, Mercs etc that will cream any of the "big 3s " best. Yes they cost waaaaaay more than the big 3s, but they're waaaay better in every sense of the word - better. But your everyday guy doesn't have a few million to spend on them. The Mopars/Chevys/Fords are great value for money. That's the point.

I posted the video because that noise... That beautiful, brutal noise.... 707hp of Supercharged Hemi brutality! Not to brag. Not to say it's a world beater. Just so others could hear that sweet noise. It's the only way I'll ever get to hear it because Dodge doesn't sell them here in Australia. Such a pity.
