Rear View - Smells Like The '80s

Yes, this is a factory '68 Hemi Charger getting abused in 1988 by Car Craft freelance contributor and former Hot Rod staff editor Steve Magnante. The story goes that Magneto squandered a $10,000 inheritance buying this numbers-matching, semi-restored Charger only to do burnouts and donuts then resell the thing for $16,000 a few years later. Seemed like a deal at the time, no? Magneto can be found nowadays working for Barrett-Jackson, Dodge, and Fox Sports doing jobs ranging from color commentary to brand advisor for new Dodge performance products.
