I used to marvel at how good the new Challengers looked until I saw a 1972 Challenger at a home show and realized how much smaller the older Challengers were to the new ones. I liked the older Challengers much more than the new ones.
Life's concerns should be about the 120lb pack your trying to get to the top of the mountain, and not the rock in your boot.

Go stand next to an old Challenger, then stand next to a new one.
The new Challengers weigh more than the new Chargers. That was reversed in 1970.

Totally agree, my point was the Mopars back then were still large in comparison to its rivals. My ‘69 383 Mag R/T Charger dwarfed my ‘67 289 GT Mustang.
