    The s were a frustrating time for car lovers. Smog concerns and fuel shortages had almost completely killed American muscle cars in all forms. There were a few still clinging on, but engine size and horsepower was way down, and so was the aggressive attitude. Engines could still be rebuilt and hopped-up, but it was hard to get inspired by the toned-down, luxury-centric styling that seemed to dominate anything fullsize.

    Where did the machismo go? Then in , Dodge debuted something a bit unexpected: Based on the familiar B-Body platform, the Magnum was a bit of an anomaly on the showroom floor. It was kind of like a Cordoba, but more muscular. It was somewhat like a Charger, but far more aggressive.

    Instead, when he walked into the dealership, he met face-to-face with the brand-new-for Magnum. Here was exactly what he had been daydreaming for. David was basically sold on the car right away, but he decided that he was going to order exactly the car he wanted, so he spent a couple of months researching the options, the XE versus the GT, and figuring out how his should look.

    He originally wanted the GT option, with its bad-boy attitude and cool wheelwell flares, but what David was paying attention to the most were the specs. The GT had the E64 ci 4-barrel with a lock-up converter and an 8.

    The XE, however, could be had with the A36 trailer tow option. While that might not sound like an exciting package, it offered the high-performance E68 ci four-barrel engine built by Chrysler Marine paired with a non-lock-up converter with 2,stall and a 9.

    Plus, it had transmission and power steering coolers standard. Good thing he went for it; the was gone the next year. This perfect Magnum was built on June 7, , and arrived at the dealership on June David actually got to his car before anyone at the dealership had a chance to prep it, so he snagged all the loose papers like the build sheet, computer card, and other assembly line information.
