Another comparison, Growing up in the 60' and 70's, I never liked these cars. They were poorly made, rattled over anything and you had to roll down the windows to get the door to close, but they were fast. The Challenger was painted in Ford Candy Apple Red from Ford parts dept. The Cuda in Chevy Silver blue that looks like it has a green tint. Both are Monogram's.

I always like the Challenger better.

I'm kind of split on this. I thought the '70-'74 Cudas had incredibly well styled front ends, but I preferred the '70 & '71 Challengers over all of them. If we're talking '72-'74, then the Cuda wins hands down.

Al, I swear you and I have the same taste in paint colors.

I'm more of a Challenger fan myself. So going with the Challenger. Also, you got 71 centers on the rallys of the Challenger. Should be silver ;)

They did have quality problems when they were new, but most was superficial, like rattles and such. Lots of them were in the dealer for leaks too. But, once straightened out, they were fast and very cool! I always preferred the Challenger over the Cuda, but on your builds, the color on your Cuda looks great.
