About “Kristen”

This was originally a Canadian car. Sold in Weston, ON at Grant Brown Ltd. March 1 1971 I have owned her of the past 23 years. In 1986 I fly to Canada and drove her back. During this time I have repaired, replaced, or restored every part of her. Original price $5,470.90 now Priceless.

About “Challenger”

My wife and I always wanted a muscle car. We really wanted a late model muscle car. Ideally, we really wanted a '67 Impala. Those are not easy to come by in good condition. But our fascination with muscle cars brought me to the Challenger. To be honest, I didn't know much about the Challenger before looking at the newer models. I've always known Dodge for the Charger, but I wandered into a dealer after reading up on the Challenger and fell in love with it. We were getting rid of a mini-SUV at the time and I brought my wife by the dealer with the intent of possibly buying the Challenger. She fell in love with it immediately and we bought it.

This car was sold in January 2014.

Specs for “Challenger”

SRT8 model, so it comes stock with ~475 HP and it shows. Ours is the Toxic Orange color and came with a Kicker system with 11 speakers and a sub in the trunk. It has all the luxuries of a modern day car with all of the punch of the old stock '70 Challenger. It's an amazing car.
