Let’s see what makes this often overlooked Charger worthy of a second look. Read the rest of this entry

In this edition of the Muscle Car Showcase, we’ll take a look at the 2004-2006 Dodge Ram SRT-10. Remember the Dodge Li’l Red Express? That red stepside truck with wood trim and chrome side pipes that Dodge built in the late 1970s.
