Even though im a Firebird buff, if you can find a 69 Charger go with that sexy beast.

I gotta agree with Oomba here, a '69 Charger would be the best (my dream car lol) but those older Firebirds were nice and could take a beating. I guess its not really the car so much as the transmission that decides how much beating the car can handle.

I agree with both, the '69 Charger is best, but what's your price range?

I think the Charger is a good choice but it'll be expensive and hard to find. Chargers are more rare then Mustangs or Firebirds and most cost more money too (in good shape).

Well my dad's old '75 Firebird was pretty good (very little rust), the only problem was the frame twisted just a bit cause of the engine and the weight up front (427 bbc, would try to wheelie but too heavy). I wish i had a scanner, i'd try to put pics up (havent seen any of engine tho ).

I say they should be bombed..... oh wait, its too late, they already have been. (Just Kidding). Although it would be nice to have had a longer Muscle Car Craze.
