Survivors? Even with a roll bar I'd imagine a severe rollover in any of those older cars would be like a piece of popcorn in the air popper! Lol

Very true, steel bends no matter how rigid it is.

It was an entertaining show and I enjoyed it as a kid, but it wasn't worth the destruction of all those Chargers.

i disagree, the charger wouldn't be quite as world-wide famous if it wasn't for the show and not nearly as desirable. besides, at the time they were just 8-9 year old cars (would you cry over a 2002 dodge stratus being destroyed for a fun tv show?)

Its kind of hard to compare a generation 2 dodge charger to a 2002 dodge stratus that I dont think even has an american made drive train in it. I couldn't even compare it to the new dodge charger because it has 4 doors. A better comparison would be the new dodge challenger, its very similar to the 2nd generation charger in that you can get it with a v6 (comparison of a 318 in 1968) or a hemi (comparison of a 440 6pack or hemi in 1968).

 You are correct though in that when they made that show dodge's were pretty much throw away cars back when they started that series. I know when I turned 16 in 1986 I was able to purchase a 1973 Charger SE factory 440HP magnum car with 76,000 miles with my $3.35 an hour taco bell pay for $1700.

Kerry - this is just terrific!!  I imagine there were several Chargers about like your rendition scattered about during the show's run. Excellent tribute!  I've done a little melting and bending of plastic. Usually when it's hot, I press a rough rock into the panel - helps with the texture in the bend. Excellent work on the Charger!

Nothing that a little bondo won't fix. Nice job on the damage.
