YAK Car Pic of the Day

Promotional materials referred to the line as “the only family-sized sports car.” This 1970 Dodge Charger 500, while certainly sporty-looking, was a far cry from the ’69 500, in which the only available engine was the 426 CID Hemi (the brochure described it as “not suitable for street use.”). The 1970 model had the 318 CID as standard, with the 383 available as an option. It also came with bucket seats, heavy-duty suspension, and fiberglass-belted tires — which were a big deal back then, but pretty laughable now. This Arkansas-tagged 500 is pictured in a Lewiston driveway.
