As the automotive industry is slowly cranking back into gear, news from both the old and the new muscle car scenes are starting to emerge. Firstly, it’s the turn of Dodge who are releasing a bunch of 50th anniversary features. Earlier in the year limited edition models were available in high impact colors, while this time around the newer models will be unlimited for the rest of 2020.

Dodge New Colors

The latest release for both the Dodge Challenger and Charger will be a new color, called ‘Smoke Show’ (paint code PAE). Five total exterior colors will be available for both models which also include Hellraisin, Sinamon Stick, Frostbite, and Gold Rush. These colors were first debuted a few years ago at a FCA Design Color Clinic in California, where the new color were unfortunately dubbed, ‘Garbage Can’ and now aims to replace the color ‘Destroyer Grey.’ The new colors will also be available in all levels of trim for both the Challenger and Charger models.

1968 Dodge Super Bee Field Find

Just as night follows day, there will always be an instance of a rare vintage muscle car being found in the most unlikely of places. In this case it’s a 1968 Dodge Super Bee which has been buried under a green tarp since 1991. The car is currently for sale for just $3000 on Facebook’s marketplace.

There aren’t many details with the listing, with the most information gleaned from the accompanying images. The images show the vehicle is in quite a shocking state and while the engine is in place with the automatic transmission, it’s got a good deal of panel rust, so we can only presume what the underside is like. The interior also looks like it would need a complete overhaul.


The ad. says that the car is ‘good for parts’ and while a good condition 1968 Dodge Super Bee can fetch over $40k, it’s still going to take a brave person to attack this project.

Mecum Head Sells GTO Collection

If completely knackered muscle cars or the latest and greatest is not your thing, then you may be interested in this lineup of Pontiac GTO’s being owned and auctioned by Dana Mecum, president and founder of Mecum Auctions.

All the vehicles come from his own personal collection of Pontiac GTO’s ranging from the years 1964 to 1970, such as a one-off gold GTO which was apparently a giveaway during a 1965 marketing campaign. As Mr. Mecum is a long-standing fan of GTOs, with his father having owned a Pontiac dealership in the past, these vehicles are near and dear to his heart. This point has been made stark with the stipulation of one vehicle being if it is eventually sold again, it must be sold back to Mecum.

If you fancy one of these tasty vehicles, then these particular GTO’s will head to auction during the Indianapolis Mecum auction on July 10-18, 2020. To find out more about the particular auction, check out the link here.
