Default Real Challengers?

I hate to start this off in a negative way, but do you guys think these Mitsub's were real Challengers? I'm afraid I don't, even if they were badged that way. ucks for cover:

Yeah I know, but at least those are actual Dodge products. These things were a disgrace IMHO.

I call them fake Challengers. Just like I called our 85 Charger (yes my wife and I owned one of them once) a fake Charger.

Didn't want to offend anyone thats just what I call them. I did like the little Charger. I always wanted to convert it to a V8 rear drive and go rice hunting.

I drove one of the early Shelby Chargers back when they were current... I think it was an '84? Other than the sloppy shifter on the manual tranny, it was fun to drive. Had a fair amount of get up and go, at least for anything made in the early '80's....

What a disgusting looking car. No it should have never worn that name.

By that is just my opinion.
