People love Rob’s 1970 Dodge Challenger. You sure did when you voted it the Top Fan Ride of June 2015.

And why not? Its 526 Max Wedge engine pumps out an incredible 887 horsepower on alcohol, according to Rob. That’s enough to lift its front tires – as you’ll see below in many of the car’s pictures.
