    I saw this Shaker Challenger on another forum. Is this Scat Pack decal way too much or really cool? I think it is a case of love it or hate it. I wouldn't have it on my SRT. I prescribe to the adage, "less is more."

    It's not for me ... but it's kinda cool to look at.

    I always loved the Scat Pack Bee. Probably drew a gazillion of them as a kid in the early '70s. But I can't quite get used to calling a car a Scat Pack.

    Dodge can’t legally call them a Super Bee. But someone with a vinyl cutter could create their own version for a willing customer. However if the legalities where in line someone would make a ton of money. I would love to see the scat pack name buried. Long live the Super bee!

    I agree with you. The Dodge Scat Pack was originally introduced in 1968, as a marketing strategy, that included Charger R/T, Daytona, Coronet R/T, Dart GTS, and Super Bee. In order for a car to enter the Scat Pack it had to be capable of running the quarter mile in 14.99 sec. or faster. Similarly, Plymouth had the Rapid Transit System for the Road Runner, GTX, 'Cuda, Superbird and Duster 340.

    To learn more interesting things about the Scat Pack, read the following article:

    I remember reading about the idea behind the Scat Pack years ago. Simply Dodge's way of trying to compete with Chevrolet's SS line of vehicles.

    Those were heady days at GM. They were putting some of the best looking cars on the road in almost all of their brands. Other than Ford' launch of the Mustang, GM owned every other category. Today ... I can't think of a single category where I would say GM has the best-looking vehicle.

    In 2013 Dodge produced the Charger Super Bee.

    seems now that Dodge puts some kind of bee name on the car. as in 2011-12 they had the Yellow Jacket

    Personally, I don't like the naming strategy. I mean what a mouthful: Dodge Challenger R/T Scat Pack Widebody.

    Goes to show that anything faster than 14.99 sec was considered a fast car back then. Think of all the production cars that can beat that today. With that ET, a late model 5.7 R/T could be called a Scat. A late model SXT might even come in under 14.99.
    Still, very cool. Then and now!
