Nice story. Enjoyed it. As other mentioned here The Silver Bullet and other cars were out on Woodward, Gratiot, Telegraph and elsewhere before this 70 Challenger was born. Royal Pontiac cars, guys I worked with at Oakwood Blvd. A street-hemi Challenger could out run a lot of cars, but nowhere near what fastest guys were running. Legit 10 sec cars or faster by '70 and '71. Again, fantastic wonderful story of a first class Detroiter and his family. Adds to the historical society for sure. But the legend of "dominating" is getting legs it may not have had back then.
