    I own two vintage Coronet R/T`s, and my thought is simple, I can`t go back to 1970 and get a Plum Crazy R/T, but I can get one from my Dodge Dealer in 2010! Rock On! Who says you can`t go home again?

    Agreed! Just got mine today! Plum crazy R/T Classic w/dual sideline WHITE R/T stripes. Upgrading to the 430 Audio System and the White Mopar leather seats w/ the plum crazy piping for UNDER the available 2K in Mopar cash! I have waited my ENTIRE life for THIS car! My father always had a Vette and a Mopar Dodge or Plymouth. I never thought the chance would ever come (BEFORE I get to where I'm going , that is...*S*) for ME to have my OWN Plum Crazy Challenger with the Track Pak! Yippee-Ky-Yay! "Music" Professor Plum
