One of the weathering/diorama guys here could maybe use an idea for a project.

It's been neglected, but it looks like it can still be saved.

Not worth $2500! Sad to see a classic looking like that!

Never heard of a Chia Charger- that thing's got to be rare.

That's the reason why these classics worth as much today!!

Everyone is looking for one, but only a few remains!!! :( 

And about half of the Chargers of this generation have been destroyed during Dukes of Hazzard show.

Sad to see this paticular one, my favorite Muscle-car, my favorite color!!

I don't thik it's salvageable since it rest in a swamp.

But i still like DOH a lot!!

There isn't enough parts on there to add up to 2500 bucks.  I hate it when people try to make a killing on

something like that. Hope he's into it big time and has to sit on it. With it sitting in all that water. The floors

are junk.  The gas cap and about a foor around of sheet metal is gone. No help for that car.

I see you to enjoy  the rusted muscle over at cars in barns.com

To all those who say it isn't worth $2500 dollars, have you seen the prices people are getting for these things online?

Wow, thanks for telling my about carsinbarns! Although it's really sad to look at, for some reason I like it...I've always thought'd be cool to completely go through a car and restore it, except for the body, leaving rust/dents/bodywork showing and what-not. It's not the non-functionality I like, it's the body damage.

As absurd as this sounds , I'd rather see this swamp thing instead of another victim of Dukes of Prunes (or whatever that show was called) .
