Dodge Charger...anywhere from 1968 to 1974 with either a 440 magnum or, and preferably, a 426 hemi, and a 4 on the floor Hurst.
  Ask Dave Beard about his rear view mirror on his 1970 Challenger ;-)
  Also ask him about his rotating muffler.....sorry Dave....I had to.

  Awesome imagine Steven. Mine one dream was a '67 cougar sleeper!
But it always ended with a big block Dodge.

Anyone else?

side panels, 1978 vintage, a faded/flat silver in color. It actually
served me pretty well for a couple years at college for a whopping
$800 purchase price. And I even sold it for $500 after a good 30k
miles added.

Anyhow, this was in the days of college cruisin' with the various guys
driving hotted-up musclecars out on the main drag in Grand Junction,
Colorado. One factor stirring this fantasy was one guy's Datsun
pickup with a hot V8 under the hood, drag racing any and all willing
participants, at least on the street where we saw him.

So, my fantasy then was to cram a radically cammed small block 327
under the hood, well-hidden, with some fat rubber the rear wheel wells
so they weren't quite so visible from elsewhere. The rear floor could
be torn up and reshaped to hold the tires/wheels and a performance
oriented driveline. Because it would be hidden behind the panels,
the only outward evidence would be the somewhat larger and much wider
rear tires appearing under the wheel wells. Everything else would be
subdued - no flashy racing stripes or anything like that.

Of course, it would make a decent V8 rumble waiting at the stoplight,
that's absolutely required, "sleeper" or not.

It was a serious sleeper street rod fantasy, for sure. Alas, I never
had funds or knowhow to pull such a thing off - not then, and
certainly not now either.

Ah, well, 'twas a good memory.
