Herd and Mike Mueller Chrysler's B-Body muscle cars had all the subtlety of a heavyweight boxer. Shockingly fast despite their size, a Charger, Road Runner, or super Bee's big-block punch left its competition reeling.

And with optional 426 HEMI's or 440 Six Packs lurking beneath the hoods, motiviation was never an issue.
