seriously though..ive done a review of the sapporo/challenger, and everyone who owned one, spoke highly of them..evidently, they handled well, and consider the other cars at the time such as the mustang II, the challenger was fairly competitive!
I'm not crazy about the styling but comparing it to an Oldsmobile Cutlass Ciera/Ciera is just cruel and unusual, believe me I had one (I still have a special place in my heart for those, that is where my hate exists). I have never been a fan of rebadged cars made by other manufactures.
Sorry Patrick, but I can't stand the thought of buying a rebadged Mitsubishi when there is nothing in the powertrain that was designed or built by the Chrysler group. When I want a Dodge, I want a Dodge not a Mitsubishi. I know the LX cars and the upcoming Challenger is built on a Mercedes E-Class platform and are using a Mercedes 5-speed, but the difference to me is the fact that the engines are Chrysler designs and the cars are built in Chrysler plants.
This car is not a true Challenger in my opinion and should have been called something different. The "Charger" from the 80s was the biggest disgrace to the badge ever, it wasn't a bad car just nothing even remotely like the original. The current Charger at least is large, like the original, has powerful V8 options, and looks tough. I'm perfectly fine with the badge "Daytona" on that car from the late 80s to earily 90s. The fact is it didn't have the name "Charger Daytona" so I can't see how that could even be associated to the Charger Daytona. I liked the Daytonas.

I took mine + put a 340 in it caged it and reinteriored it have great fun it out corners the 70's challengers + My wife raced it all summer + put a lot of guys on the trailer the motor was a disgrace the chassis with a V-8 in it is awesome.twice what the 60's = 70's cars were.I love the 60's cars I race a 69 dodge dart but not in the corners.with the v-8 this is the best of both worlds.
I HAD A 78 CHALLENGER WE PULLED THE RUNNING GEAR AND ARE INSTALLING IT IN A 1948 CROSLEY WAGON... INTERESTINGLY ENOUGH THAT 78 CHALLENGER WITH THE MITSUBISHI 4 CYL DOES STILL USE A CHRYSLER 904 TRANS .. AND THAT MITS BELL HOUSING BOLTS TO THE LATER TURBO ECLIPSE 4 CYL MOTOR... I HAVE A FEW FRIENDS WITH COLTS THAT HAVE BEEN DOING THIS SWAP FOR A FEW YEARS NOW..
