What an horrible end for this '67 Camaro!!! Poor muscle car! Why they destroyed an American legend?

Because a '67 Camaro was just a 4-year-old cheap sportscar at that time? (compared to the "new" '70 Dodge Challenger)

Im going to get alot of crap for saying this but I think the '69 camaro is the best style for camaro EVER with the recessed V grille, so in my opinion blowin' up this '67 is no big loss. . . . . . . . . still it is a shame, I'll admit that.

"Because they wouldnt be crazy enough to wreck a Mopar"....actually, they wrecked 4. 4 brand new 440 4 speeds, and a 383 auto car were given to the movie makers by Chrysler. The 383 car was used to tow the Camaro in the final crash scene using a cable, and is believed to be the only surviving Challenger.

A 1967 Chevrolet Camaro used at the end of the movie instead of a brand new 1970 Dodge Challenger.

I love the main pic! It's actually on fire before impact, greatness.

Actually the '67 that they used was only a rolling chassis, they loaded it up with dynamite and yes they did use the 383/auto Challenger to pull it. To correct an older post, they did NOT wreck 4 Challengers, the Challengers used in the movie simply "disappeared" because Chrysler didn't want anything to do with the movie after it was made. The only one I've actually seen with my own eyes is sitting in a small car museum in Gatlinburg, Tn.

No, because Chrysler wanted the cars back after filming so they could sell them.

I feel sorry for anyone that bought one of those eight cars.

Mopars have a pretty good tendency to wreck themselves. Every chrysler product iv ever owned has been a piece of crap one way or another.
buy a new dodge truck and see how many transmissions you go through.

However, I would give my left nut to get my hands on an Alpine white 1970 Dodge Challenger R/T with a 440 six pack. I could do without that pistol grip 4 speed though. wedge a torqueflite in there and i'd be happier than a pig in $#!T.

Everyone I have ever owned has been flawless. New Dodge truck? Not even under Dodge anymore for one. Also, this isn't 1999. They do not have any known automatic transmission issues anymore. The SECOND GENERATION Dodge Rams that used the 42, 46 and 47 RH or RE series transmissions were all but guaranteed to eventually need work done. Most over 150,000 miles.. gear teeth would be about gone by then. They have not used those transmissions in 13 years. The 45RFE, 545RFE, 68RFE, 845RE (by ZF) et al transmissions are all known to be very stout. I guess that is why you are not stpaultruckguy?

My '08 F-150 and my '94 Silverado with almost 200 bills on it are way more reliable than any other dodge iv ever owned. don't get me wrong, i love the style of dodge ram between '94 and '01 and wouldn't mind having one in my personal collection but i would not rely solely on it to haul anything without having a Ford or Chevy backup. i wouldn't trust a dodge truck any further than i could throw one.

You seem to just want to spout your opinion about MOPARs and how they "wreck themselves", in reply to someone talking about the Challenger(s) used in filming no less??? And you somehow felt the need to talk about your pickups? Different strokes I guess. Plenty of Dodge trucks with over 200,000 miles on them (and all of the big three will claim to have the "most" on the road, they just use whatever statistical average works best.. mean, median, mode) and I am getting ready to buy a fourth generation Ram 3/4 ton. Me and my father have both owned a few 200k Dodges (he has no preference, he has a new Ford F-150 now).. and again you are talking about the 2nd generation Dodge Ram that has been out of production for over a decade.. want an 'atomic clock' Gen 2 for your 'collection'? Pretty much any engine option with a New Venture Gear manual transmission behind it (the 3.9L if you want a truck that can't get out of it's own way). An NV5600 was actually the only tranny option for the 2 final 2nd Gen years with the high output Cummins diesel. They probably weight 6-7000lbs so you won't be able to throw them I'm afraid, since that is a criteria you seek in a Dodge pick-up truck.
The styling on the Gen 2 is pretty much what put them on the map and in the running, and probably the reason you can get a $60,000 1/2 ton today.. not that I agree with that, I like a reg cab long bed HD myself, but the styling brought a whole extra segment of people that put the pickup beyond utilitarian. It was a night and day difference aesthetically between a '94 Ram and your '94 Chevy C/K.. and it caused the others to refine their interiors and styling.. otherwise they share a lot of the same/similar components from the same manufacturers (dana.. magna/New Venture/New Process.. AAM..).

Here is one, which can be the white one (repainted), I guess.

Maybe somebody have already wrote this, but I read that the Challengers were on loan and they had to be returned in a reasonable condition.

I'm going to be the grown up and let this go because you dont seem to have enough fiber in your diet or something but i will ask you two last questions before i go

If chrysler products are soooooo great then why did they almost loose their asses multiple times in the 80's due to p!$$ poor design, bad quality, etc?

And if they're soooooooo great then why were they stupid enough to take the government bail out? answer: because they almost lost their asses AGAIN!
