1970 Dodge Challenger Is A Must-Have Mopar

1970 Dodge Challenger Is A Must-Have Mopar This is one of the most iconic Mopar body styles, and it can be yours! The 1970 Dodge Challenger design is so iconic, that Chrysler copied it almost exactly when resurrecting this nameplate on the 2008-current Dodge Challenger. Nothing beats the original, though, and this car would make for the perfect addition to any Mopar fanatic's collection! Parked at your local car show or cruising around town, this 1970 Dodge Challenger is sure to get attention with its bright yellow paint job. This paint is accented by the black vinyl top, two-tone mag wheels and beautiful chrome bumpers and trim.

The First Look At The Indian Challenger We Almost Missed

Indian almost pulled a fast one.

At the beginning of September, Indian launched its 2020 Scout lineup. It looks like the manufacturer snuck an Easter egg in one of the pictures—the first look at the Indian Challenger we almost missed.

  • FIrst Ride: 2019 Indian Scout

Since earlier this year, the name “Challenger” has been making the rounds. It first surfaced as an Indian trademark at the beginning of the year. Then a strange test mule was spotted on the road with a very distinct new fairing, sparking the rumor that the Challenger name had found its application. More recently, its appearance at the dealers’ meeting confirmed our suspicions about the Challenger and its addition to the Indian lineup.

Then the manufacturer announced its 2020 Scout lineup, complete with a selection of pictures.  In some of the images, the Scouts were posed with another bike in the background—usually another Scout. But of these pictures was not like the other. Among those pictures, one should have stood out. Indian tried to pull one on us, but thanks to the keen eye of our colleagues at Canada Moto Guide, the trick didn’t go unnoticed.

One of the images of the new Scout Bobber Twenty—a celebratory model of the 100th Anniversary of the Scout—shows the model fully accessorized and accompanied by a second bike, but definitely not a Scout. Behind it, an unknown tourer with a weird full fairing has been placed instead. This, ladies and gents, looks like our first peek at the new Challenger. The recognizable bracket-shaped LED headlight and cockpit-like front fairing are the biggest giveaways.

This Original 1914 Indian Board Tracker To Hit The Auction Block

This Original 1914 Indian Board Tracker To Hit The Auction Block Back in the day, this bike absolutely smoked every other race bike around. Motorcycle racing in the early 1900s was wild. At the time, it was a brave new world, as any technologies we now take for granted were in their infancy and intrepid manufacturers that wanted to go racing had to adapt. Take this beautiful barn-find 1914 Indian 8-Valve Board Tracker as an incredibly good example—and if you really want to take it, read on to learn how it can be yours for the right price.

This picture wasn’t part of the collection we received from Indian on this side of the border (I know, I double checked), but it looks like it might have been in the Canadian press package. Or maybe it was part of our selection but was removed afterward without our knowledge. It's hard to tell, but whatever they did, they didn’t act fast enough—someone caught up on it.

The new model is expected to use a new Powerplus 108 engine, a 1,770cc, 60-degree V-twin rumored to produce 120 horsepower. The season for new models unveilings is upon us and we suspect we’ll be seeing the Challenger for its first official public appearance before the end of the year.
