Last Call – Made For a Citroën Edition

At up to 25 feet long, and more than 200-lbs, the green anaconda is the world’s largest snake. I can’t quite put my finger on why, but this road made me think of that.

    While it's no Tail of the Dragon, that would be a very enjoyable road to drive at any speed.

      Is there a higher resolution available?

    This reminds me of driving the 2cv through Indiana on Hwy 62.

      How many weeks did that take?

        125 miles took about 4 hours. speeds ranged from 40 to 60 depending on which side of a hill i was on. still, it was a lot of fun.

    So yesterday was the Snowpocalypse and I ended up firing up the Playstation and drove around in The Challenger for most of the day right after Mr. Vanishing Point pointed out that the Plymouth Road Runner name should be resurrected. So, how good/bad would it be if it was done on the current Dodge Challenger? My in-game Challenger is already a Roadrunner-tastic Bright Blue and I think a running bird on the doors would totally be the cat's pajamas.
    Maybe a more correct lineage would be the Dodge Charger, but the Roadrunner was a two-door. Besides, the new car is based on the midsize sedan platform Dodge has anyway, so it's as close as we get to a modern-day Belvedere hardtop. I would be so interested if they offered a Challenger in poverty-SE spec stuff (black plastic dash inlays, cloth seats, standard wheels and the like) with the 5.7 and five-speed. I would want a 2010 Dodge Challenger Road Runner personally, but I'm not from that period; would it be sacrilegious to place the Roadrunner name and bird on a Dodge?

      I don't know about the 2011 Challenger's options, but my 2010 is a "27F" package meaning a manual R/T with cloth seats and a limited range of options. Higher trim manual R/T's with leather are "27J", or "27M" if they're the Classic package. The base R/T wheel is an 18" alloy due to the size of the brakes, but my car was built with the 20" chrome-clad wheels (which I might ditch once I find a wheel I really want.)

        I guess your's is as close as we will get to a modern 'big engine, everything else is secondary' kind of car. I wonder if they can shave the price even more by ditching the xenons, stripes and wheels, but that'd probably be a special order and won't actually come out cheaper than yours.
        I dream of your car when I sleep; just wanted to let you know 😉

      There was a rumor not that long ago of a revival of the 'Cuda, presumably under the Chrysler nameplate.
      If I was wearing the sweaters in Auburn Hills, I'd find the bucks to revive the Plymouth nameplate, but only for two limited edition cars: A 'Cuda (a lightly restyled Challenger, maybe with vinyl or velour interior and crank windows) and a Road Runner (a Charger with the same upholstery as the 'Cuda, along with the cartoon graphics and "Meep-meep!" horn plus a reworked rear fascia, 300 front sheetmetal with a different grille insert to keep costs in check and, oh yeah, offer a stick with all engines and rub Dodge's nose in it). Sell 'em at select Chrysler dealers and watch them sell like hotcakes made from bourbon.

      The Dodge Adventurer.lived after the Desoto Adventurer died. Neon was a Dodge and a Plymouth simultaneously. The Daytona was a Charger twice (1969 and the Disco era Cordoba cousin) before it spun off into its own model in the 80's and 90's. You have my permission to make a Roadrunner Challenger.
      Use Charger cop trim wherever possible. Cop wheels, console delete, cloth seats, rubber mat instead of carpet, etc. Put a bare bones AM-FM-CD in the dash–no navigation, no Bluetooth, no booming amplifier, four speakers maximum. No HID lights or fog lights. HVAC is single zone, non-climate-control.
      5.7 is the base engine, with the 6.4 as the only upgrade. The big engine comes with a special hood scoop. Your choice of auto or stick, and the only other option is a roll cage.
      The horn goes beep beep.

        Again I find myself saying 'Very, very yes.'

        Don't forget the 80s turbo Daytona. It's been a Charger at least three times.

        1. OA5599 Avatar

          Iy was built on the G-body platform in the 80's and 80's. The Charger was a L-body those years (until the Charger was discontinued). That's what I meant about it being its own model.

            Ahh. Carry on then.

    If the Citroen you suggest is a 2CV, might I suggest you allow plenty of time for your return to the summit?
    Equally, if it's an SM, or a BX 4TC Group B Rally car, I suggest you lift off at the crest of the hill to prevent going into orbit.

    Yes, yes, I agree whole-heartedly!

    There is a road out in California near Barstow (I think) that my dad and his buddies would ride on our way to Laguna Seca. They called it "helicopter road" because of the undulations, and on a sportsbike, this road would rival that one.

    This road would be amazing in just about anything that was in Rally Spec. Hell even my GTI would make this an entertaining experience.
