"Our sole Challenger has just broken the ring of evil the deep blue meanies
have so righteously wrought - get through 'em baby, get through 'em." -
Super Soul, Vanishing Point 1971
It happens deep in the Nevada desert, just past Austin. On a long, straight
section of road with nothing to lose, our friends in the white 1970 Dodge
Challenger R/T finally put the hammer down. At once, the rawness and purity
of Kowalski's ride pulverizes the well-insulated interior of our 2008 Dodge
Challenger SRT8, shredding the peace inside the modern car's cockpit with
the same brute force Kowalski used to pierce a hole in the cool desert air
38 years ago. Even with my right foot buried, I see nothing but taillights
until they disappear into the desert.
In these few brief seconds, the 2008 Dodge Challenger SRT8 is clearly
defined by its soft edges and quiet Exhaust. Manufacturers don't let us feel cars
raw and unfiltered anymore. Hammering down a desert road with a thin-rimmed
steering wheel and pistol-grip shifter - that's raw. Four hundred and forty
cubic inches and a four-speed - that's raw. Powerslides unhampered by
electronic intervention - that's raw.
In 1970, when Kowalski drove this very road - U.S. Highway 50 through
Nevada - he felt it. And it was raw.
