    Not my cup of tea but I suppose the reputation of the builder might be a big factor for someone that "needs" a ragtop. Just not enough info.

    When these came out and everyone was all excited about all the power of that 5.7 hemi. I thought just wait and see where this goes in a few years that 5.7 will be like a 1965 273, just a little put put engine. Now 700+++ horses. LOL

    Seems like quality work converting it to a rag top.
    I would have to inspect the chasis to make sure it was properly braced and strengthened since they cut the roof off. I would of put some sort of roll bar in it.

    I am not a big fan of the rear end, it looks like it is a bed off a modern Ram truck with the expanded rear fenders.

    I think the Challenger has the perfect body for a convertible, there were a few new conversions for sale at the Carlisle coral last year. This car is just a little too red and those rear wheel wells make the car looked unbalanced

    You don’t buy a car like that to have the top up, Or the paint the same color as primer.

    what a Seriously Ugly vehicle.

    It looks like it belongs on the Enterprise lot at Orlando Airport.

    The couple rag top mules Chrysler had running around Auburn Hills back in 07 or so looked much better. The up-top was sleeker looking. more like a Camaro top. Nobody sits in the back seat anyway!

    Agree on both counts. Might be the camera, but I don't like the pink tinted red. The rear wheel wells make it look like it should be a dually.

    I think mostly it’s stadium seating and those horrible rear headrests that are to blame.

    I remember that the kiss of death was that the Sebring top didn’t fit so they slapped it on the PT cruiser instead. Big big missed opportunity there.
