Visiting my cousin… notice also ´69 Olds Cutlass and Buick in the background! Beautiful sight, isn´t it!? It´s actually not every day job to find these rare original T/A and R/T especially in the same yard!

The Locomotive

I guess you wonder what this "The Locomotive" stands for? Well, got the idea from the previous owner who had called this car as "Der Vorläufer"… freely translated to The Locomotive. If you ever had driven Detroit Muscle Car, I think you´ll then understand where this impression of "The Locomotive" comes from. Power and Torque… but no steering! Especially in this car this is absolutely true because not having power steering. You can imagine how this size and weighted car is going to understeer in the curves!

Museum Vehicle!

Now my Dodge Challenger is registered as a museum vehicle. After having approval statement from Finnish Hot Rod Association, I went to inspection and also technically everything was according to the museum vehicle criterias. In Finland these criterias are very strict and car should be almost the same as this car came out from the assembly line in March 1970.

Congratulations to the previous owner for maintaining this rare muscle car as original as possible and also to the Eyeball Products/Kari Konttijärvi for excellent Sheet Metal work!
