Who says that a new-model car can’t be a muscle car? Don’t tell Blair DuBois that. We’ll let Blair from Denville, New Jersey, tell you about his ’10 Challenger R/T.

I installed a Classic Pistol Grip Shifter for the six-speed manual transmission. I added 20-inch Boyd Coddington Wheels, a chrome skull in the grille, and some old-school R/T badging. If you’re wondering about color, on a ’10 Challenger, it’s called Brilliant Black Crystal Pearl.

If you’re going to call it a muscle car, it better have the muscle to back it up. That’s where Blair tells us his has the Hemi, which is equipped with a cold air intake. Not wanting to skimp on the creature comforts, the interior is black leather, with a DVD player in the head unit. He tells us that his wife even helped with the order form, by suggesting he get the sunroof. She’s a very smart woman, says Blair. She even approves of my BACK270 vanity plates.

I have a lot of fun with my Challenger. Everywhere I go, people say good things about it. I have even won two trophies from two different shows. I love the classic lines and styling of this car. mm

Got a HOT ONE? Same idea here as for our Penta Stars section: Send a brief description of your late-model Mopar (’06-later Charger, Challenger, Magnum, or 300), and some choice pictures that show what you’ve got, and we’ll run it in the monthly Late Model Spotlight.

High-resolution digital images work the best (4x6 inches file size, 750 kb-2 mb file size and 300 dpi resolution). We can also handle clear, sharp 4x6-inch color prints on photographic paper (not on computer paper), if you’re still shooting on film. Email your submissions to: mopar.muscle@sorc.com or send ’em via U.S. Mail or Canada Post to: Mopar Muscle, c/o Late Model Spotlight, 9036 Brittany Way, Tampa, FL 33619 USA.
