I am building a 1970 Charger, fully modernized, from the ground-up. The name of the car is "Punishment."

The work is being done by Dave Salvaggio, in Milwaukee: http://www.salvaggioautodesign.com/

Dave also built the 1970 Challenger known as "Insidious." Pictures of that car are here:
http://www.amcarguide.com/custom/clean-and-custom-1970-dodge-challenger/

I'll post pics here as the car gets built.

There was a black charger close to that at monster Mopar a couple of years back.  It was a 68 if I remember, but it won several awards.

Do you have any pictures of that Stuart?  I remember I had a spot in the swap area and walked over to the show field to look at that thing at least 5 different times.  It was very nicely done! drool5

Not normally a big fan of custom work on 1st 2nd or 3rd gen Chargers (especially 2nd) as I have always found them to be basically perfect as delivered but this is a project I look forward to seeing.  I too, fall on the side of liking the modern taillights.

Same here. I'm looking forward to seeing the finished product...  The jury is still out on the tail lights.
