What Road Runners Are Made Of

Here’s an illustration that Hot Rod Magazine used in their review of a 1968 Plymouth Road Runner in their November 1967 issue. Back then Editor Eric Dahlquist wrote:

“And that, pal, is what Road Runners are made of. It’s a supercar in every sense of the term but one—price. That’s why you’re going to love it. The accessories, a very few, like the Hemi, are there, but the basic package will blow the doors off almost anything in the asphalt jungle, and some of those cats cost a grand more. You can do a lot with that extra thousand dollars.”

Pretty cool, huh? Via Hot Rod
