In reply to slantsix :

It was easily the most beautiful car at the event last year.

That's Matt Foster's '68 Charger. I'll see what we can dig up.

The idea of running a Charger at an event like that is a bucket-list dream.

Fun fact, I was actually born in Middlesboro, not far from the location of the HillClimb.

I've driven the road they use for the event, and I can confirm that, even at slow speeds, is really fun to drive.
