17: 1969 Dodge Challenger R/T
The Dodge Challenger R/T was a whole new creation for Chrysler. The car was designed to hit the performance car market head-on, and that it did. The legendary Hemi V8 engine is one of the most highly sought-after powerplants in the world.
To this day, the Hemi will hold its own on any racetrack and the Dodge Challenger is still a blast to drive. The car had many advantages, so don’t let the heavy body fool you. There are very few cars that can tango with the Challenger, and the original model still holds its value quite well in the classic car world.
