Now the Supercars Chevelles, Turin GTs, Plymouth GTX and Coronet R/T are added to the size cars.
While they all sell well, the problem for manufacturers is that the prices of these vehicles are constantly rising and will soon be inaccessible to the young buyers they target.
Plymouth fought back with road runners in 68 years, Dodge followed the Super Bee, two bare bones, and took a taxi to the fast middle station --

For Brad prumer of Winnipeg, he discovered his yellow 1969 Dart Swinger 340 in 1974, more than 30 years ago.
"I'm 18 years old and this is my first muscle car," prumer said . ".
Until 1979, prumer was used mainly on the street as a daily driver, and he took Swinger to the dragstrip of MB Gimli and drove the car regularly until 1982.
After moving to Saskatoon, he continued at S. I. R.
Constantly changing the past time in a low 12 seconds range until he reached a bad year in 1986.
"I blew up an engine, transmission and back end in a year, and I quickly lost interest in the car, so I parked the car," prumer said . ".
The car returned to Winnipeg in 1987 and then lived in his mother's garage until 2002.
In the summer, after driving Swinger, prumer began to look around for a car repair shop and took it to paint it again.
Pulumer said, "I listed six or seven stores mentioned in the classic cruise column of Winnipeg Liberty Press and started the comparison, I met Ron Marsh in New YorkO. C.
Repair of East Selkirk, MB.
"After checking the car, it was clear that Swinger had fixed some body damage before and it was not just paint work.
"We found that damage on the front fender and a rear quarter panel and body filler were caused by an accident that occurred before I owned the car," Plummer said . ".
After the media blasting the car, some extra hidden bondo and rusty surprises surfaced, and the only way people decided to drive the car properly was to fully restore the grill.
For the next three years, Swinger received new rear quarter panels, trunk floor extensions and a straight set of rusty pieces

The dashboard is also stripped and painted and the plastic speedometer, heater and radio baffle are sent to C. V.
The vacuum tablet in Vancouver restored the plastic chrome-plated surface and polished the clear plastic speedometer lens.
In addition to the factory instruments including the original music master AM radio, Plummer has added an automatic tachometer, thermometer and oil pressure gauge to monitor key engine functions.
With the exception of three, there are very few options on the car
Quick windshield wiper, reverse indicator, hood pin with lanyard and iconic black Bumblebee stripes.

T/A tires.
Plummer, a five-year member of the Manitoba mompa Association, has successfully traveled more than 530 miles on Swinger 340 since the 2005 repair was completed.
"Only if there is no cloud in the sky will I take it out and drive because it is as clean below as it is above and I like to keep it that way, prumer said.
Today, the Dart Swinger 340 car is a difficult discovery, and although thousands of cars have been built, many people have just been smashed for decades.
Pulumer's fully documented car is easily considered one of the best cars I 've seen in years.
This is a great example of a small Mopar that makes performance real and fun.
