S.C. Express will become famous soon enough
Default Almost got to play with a classic R/T

But as usual the police had to ruin it for me.. This beauty pulled up beside me at a stop light and popped the throttle one time.. Not that he needed to. I love all the 1960 to 70 model muscle cars...So his ride caught my eye about a 1/4 mile back, I was drooling over the car already, then once he popped his Flowmasters at me I could not help myself. Before I knew it, my right hand turned off the ESC and turned on tow/haul mode and my adrenaline started to kick in. Now the kicker.. the whole time we were at the light my radar detector was going nuts, so I was looking for Mr.5.0. The light goes green and I jumped him 2 car lengths with an aggressive start but kept it at the speed limit. Very quickly he started to pull up beside me., and there was the cop about 100 yards away, I quickly motioned to the guy and pointed to the police car.. He backed off the throttle and we just rolled side by side for about a 1/2 mile. So I had to settle for a quick cell phone pic. Any one my age and older know what a rare find this car was.. Prob. an easy 100 grand as she appeared to be unmolested exterior wise. I am sure it had a 4 spd manaul with 4.10's or more judging by his shifting/rpms. I would not have cared if I won or not had we actually raced, just glad to see such a rare car in very gc being driven. Anyways, I'll shutup and show you the pic.

I know D.R. on public roads and cell phone pics while driving is pure stupidity. 99.9% of the time I would NEVER do either, but this car really brought back fond childhood memories. At 5 yrs. old I lived under the hood of my dad's 69 Camaro watching him set valve lash every other weekend.

From what I can tell with the side marker light its a 1970.... Did you look on the side of the hood to see what motor was in the car? Me and my dad built my first car. We started on it when I was 14 it was a 71 GTX w/ a 440... I sold it and got a 72 pistol grip 340 Cuda and still have it and in the middle of resto on it right now. My Dad also has a 1970 Challenger TA... Here is a pic of it and my 09 Challenger r/t I had before my truck.

Beautiful cars bud. The only thing I saw trim wise was the red/chrome R/T on the side and trunk. I wish I had looked a little closer. By the sound of her exhaust, defintely a small block engine. I was thinking it was 70 model as well. I wish I had payed more attention, but I did not want to make the guy nervous.
