    Well, hopefully the Redeye owner didn't get hurt. The structure of the Challenger seems to have held up well, despite receiving a massive hit. If it had been a 1970 Challenger, things would have been very different.

    Oik.

    Airbags are a GREAT reason to just get a modern-era Challenger if you want to hot rod something. I know they are heavier than the originals, but, hey, it is more easily possible to make more power these days, with off-the-shelf CNC-ported heads, blowers, (including the relatively-newly introduced TVS 2650 updraft kit for Challenger V8's by Magnuson, which uses one of the best rotor packs ever produced, better even than the 3100 version also produced by Eaton.
