It's The 1969 Dodge Charger "General Lee" versus...

...This Smokin' Hot 2011 Dodge Charger

It had to be done… pit the iconic 1969 Charger against its brawny 2011 distant descendant on a comparison track test: 0 to 60; 60 to 0; skidpad and slalom. Which will win and in which categories? You probably think you already know but here it is for the record:


It would be great to hear back from you about what you thought. Please send an email from the website, if you’d like to comment. If we leave comments open on the blog, we can an unbelievable amount of spam and worse. But we’d love to hear your feedback and we’ll post it in a blog post update.

And if you didn’t read the review of the new Charger with fond comparisons to its 1969 ancestor, make sure to read our blog post and the review by Scott Wasser in the Maine Sunday Telegram…

This very positive Maine Sunday Telegram review of the re-styled 2011 Dodge Charger pays homage to its ’60s and ’70s muscle car roots and even mentions the impressive seven early and recent models currently stored and/or living at Portland Motor Club recently featured on Bill Green’s Maine. Fans of “The Dukes of Hazzard” will appreciate this playful review written by Maine Sunday Telegram/Portland Press Herald Automobile Editor (as well as Executive Editor) Scott Wasser. You can see it/touch it/drive it in person at SouthernMaineMotors.com, Bill Waldron’s new Chrysler/Dodge/Jeep dealership which he bought from Jolly John Pulsifer (Jolly John’s Auto City) in the fall of 2010. Sadly, the iconic Jolly John passed away recently unable to enjoy his well-deserved retirement from his impressive auto-mobile/auto-promotion career of many decades.

You will see most if not all of the Chargers on site watching video tour of Portland Motor Club on our homepage.

Some nice new lines on the rear have a touch of "retro" -- catch 'em if you can!
