1969 Dodge Charger: Time for Tea?


One way to get a person addicted to cars is by letting them have a '69 Charger in high school. Bromley Howser, owner of the gorgeous Dodge Charger in this Petrolicious film, remembers enjoying the power of some classic American muscle as a teenager.

A man who doesn't shy away from getting his hands dirty, he has built a launch pad for a space recovery vehicle for NASA and restored cars including a 1953 MG TF, Chevy Chevelle and a 1963 split-window Corvette. A terrible motorcycle accident left him with a broken back and over two years of recovery. In hospital, he was asked by his girlfriend whether he would give up motorbikes. His answer? Only if he could get a Hemi Charger...

Much like his recovery, the restoration of his Hemi was a slow process. He found 'his' Charger up for sale in Denver with the body in a field and the engine parts spread out in the garage. Restoring it over 15 years, Bromley found the car to be complete, with only the fuel pump and alternator being non-original. Now painted in the later Sublime Green colour, Bromley isn't too bothered about upsetting the purists; he enjoys driving it and loves the colour - bravo that man!

    Love Petrolicious videos and regardless of personal taste in cars, the video (including this one) are well worth watching, emotive and hit the mark for people who simply love their cars

    That green should be ghastly but in fact it's perfect with the black.
    Love it!

    The classiest muscle car ever; if muscle cars can be classy. Absolutely perfect styling.
