Ken Mosier’s 1970 Dodge Challenger has been named Goodguys 2010 Hemmings Muscle Machines Muscle Car of the Year! Mosier, owner of his own restoration shop “The Finer Details” in Danville, Indiana had chased this particular car for over 17 years before recently getting his hands on it, personally restoring it to original factory condition. The numbers matching muscle car is just as spectacular as it was the day it rolled off the assembly line.
