A pony, a goat and a penguin walk into a bar...
After ordering a round, the pony declares the Mustang is greatest. The Goat favors the GTO. Munching on goldfish crackers, the penguin confidently counters that the Z-28 was what broke the ice in 1968. He then straightened his bowtie.
Just in from Autoworld: American Muscle is a maroon 1967 Camaro Z-28. The previous post-Ertl issue immediately sold out.
This is from their higher standard Authentic line. So expect the works! Soft seats, sliding bucket seats, opening everything, detailed engine with soft hoses and cables, working suspension, rotating driveshaft, etc.
A somewhat tipsy ram sidles up to the bar and soon butts head with the penguin when he rhapsodizes about the superior coolness of the 2nd gen Dodge Charger. Which was opportune because AutoWorld also just delivered unto us their American Muscle 1968 Dodge Charger R/T and a 1971 Dodge Charger R/T.
1968 was a breakthrough year for the Charger, the horned beast reminded the other three. It was the first year of the tapered, curvy "Coke bottle" design. There was the hidden-headlamp grille, elegant recessed backlight, and restrained tasteful use of chrome. It was the R/T's first year (standing for Road & Track"). The R/T debuted with a 440 Magnum beneath the hood and sporting bumblebee stripes circling the rear.
The ram held the other animals' gaze when he whispered, "and that was just the start." He pointed out that AutoWorld had also given proper due to the third generation Dodge Charger with its hard charging 1971 Charger R/T. The model comes with a Ramcharger hood scoop surrounded by that distinctive hood bulge. Beneath that bulge, the ram snickered, lurks a Hemi 426 - very realistic on the model.
At this point, a giraffe shows up as the designated driver to take them all home.
Before your designated driver shows up, belly up for one of these limited run AutoWorld Chargers. When it comes to muscle cars, AutoWorld is top shelf.
