Those of us who were around in the 1970s or who like to hang out in the muscle car section of classic car shows remember the bright colours Dodge put on some of its cars. We’re talking hot pink, lime green, bright orange. If you drove one of those babies, you got noticed.

Well, for a limited time, it will be possible to buy the Dodge Challenger R/T Classic and the Dodge Challenger SRT8 in Plum Crazy. They’ll be doing a limited production run starting next month, and are already taking orders for delivery this spring. Prefer HEMI® Orange? No problem. They’ll be producing the Dodge Challenger R/T, R/T Plus, R/T Classic and SRT8 in that colour in May, again in limited numbers. Makes me nostalgic for my old Charger. While today’s Dodges may look like their classic ancestors, they’re modern where it counts.

Those who buy the 2013 Dodge Challenger SRT8 392 in one of the heritage paint colours also get a day of professional driving instruction. Sweet. Even better news for us Canadians is that the cars will be built in Brampton, Ontario.
