    In 1968, Chrysler Corporation executives realized that for Dodge to remain competitive in the NASCAR arena that they were going to have to significantly improve the aerodynamics of their homologated race cars. The freshly-restyled 1968 Dodge Charger was the best starting point for a race-ready car in the brand's stable, but stylists and engineers set about to make an even better mousetrap. Modifications began in covering the front A-pillar drip rails with a chrome cover, improving the airflow off the sides of the windshield. Next, the grille was altered to make it flush with the hood and front bumper, improving leading-edge aerodynamics more than they had even anticipated. Even the new car's headlights were flush with the grille - the 500 was the only Charger ever built during this timeframe to offer exposed headlights. Finally, the rear window line was resculpted to incorporate the entire rear of the car into a smooth flowing design all the way to the car's trunk lid - which itself had to be shortened to accommodate this sleek new rear body.

    The Buick Riviera that was released and sold in the year I was born, 1965, was quite a vehicle. It was the last year for the "first generation" Riviera model - and by far the best. A unique, recognizable body style that encompassed a spacious cabin and housed a powerful V8 engine has now become a sought-after gem of classic car collectors. I was fortunate enough to have one for a few months in my youth.

    Here are some of its power stats:
    *0-60 in 8 seconds
    *Quarter mile in 16 seconds
    *Top speed observed 115 MPH
    *Mileage 13.2 MPG
