Challenger 2 Going to Mecum Kissimmee
 
Alongside the original Bullitt Mustang, another car is going to share the spotlight at Kissimmee in January 2020.

I'm actually quite amazed that Challenger 2 is being sold after being in the Thompson family all these years. It's truly an incredible car. However, I had read that Danny emptied his life savings (and then some) to finish what his dad started with Challenger 2, so it makes sense to pass it on to a new caretaker.

Koool... remember it well! America was obsessed with speed trials back then! Funny... ad says 'Sold on a Bill of Sale'... DUH!!!

My fav has always been the Summers Bros Goldenrod! [dr[cl:D

Still is ;)

I'm glad Danny dug the car out of mothballs and finished what his dad started with it. It's an amazing car and Danny made a lot of big changes to it to be able to meet his goals.

I hope the car brings BIG money for Danny and his father's legacy.

Reading the auction listing... a whole lot of who's who, both past and present!

Haha, well to be fair this falls under the category of "you wouldn't want to try driving this in traffic."

I thought it might go for more but it was anyone's guess. $510K.
