question about car

Been watching the marathon today and was wondering, can anyone tell me what exactly is the black car Michael drives? What kind and year would be great. Thanks!

Comments

it's a Dodge Charger though I'm blanking on the exact year of it.

I have no idea but I just had to comment to say I love your icon =]

wish I knew what the car was though
Dodge Charge, just not sure of yr.
I'd almost bet large sums of money that it's a '69 Charger.

But all of my car crazy family keeps telling me it's a '73 Charger. As does most of the interwebs. So, we'll go with '73.

even if I do still think it looks more like a '69.

Re: get a clue

its not a 69. 69 was the general lee generation with the hide a way lights. im almost posotive its a 73 but i dont think 73 chargers had air grabber hoods like the one on burn notice, but anyone can buy one and put it on. although i do believe 73 was the last year a 440 was in a charger or 71 was

not a 69

at all.

Definitely not a '69.

There's a lot of different ways to tell that it's a '73 and not a '69. One of those ways is the front. Between the two, the 69 Charger has the hidden headlights, while the '73 has pairs of two that are really quite visible. Even the overall body-style is different. Be thankful you don't bet loads of money, that'd be a terrible loss.

they are right

I own a 74' charger with the same body style only through 71'-74' and the 69' has a shorter hood and over all frame
I think it is a 1969 Dodge Charger.
Oh, good. I'm not the only one that thinks so.
I have this crazy "gift" of being able to look at the front quarter panel of a car and spot the make, model, and on a good day, the year.It's like the only useful trait I picked up from my dad. That and I can kick anyone's ass on Jeopardy.

That said, I could be totally wrong.
See, some of my family (and by some I mean 3 people) keep telling me that it looks like somebody took a '69 front end and stuck it on a '72/3 body. And when I look at comparison shots, I have to kinda agree with them. I think the car may be a hybrid.

But when I first saw the car, I too went "That's a '69".

I'm sorry I don't have an answer for you. I just wanted to tell you how much I love your icon! I'm a Dean/Cassie fan.
Blackdoggy1 creates the best icons!
I'll have to check them out! Thanks!
Had to add to the icon love. xD
It's a Dodge Charger and I believe the year they give is 1973.
what everyone said about the car.

cool icon, too.
In the Burn Notice novelization, Michael says it's a 'seventy-four Dodge Charger. Not sure if you can consider that "canon" or whatever, but... *shrug* General consensus here is that it's a seventy-three. I know nothing about cars, so I'll leave that to you guys. xD
I'm not sure on the year, either.. I do know that between Michael Westin & Dean Winchester, my head is about to explode from all the hot guys driving hot cars. *drools*
It's definitely a Dodge Charger, I seriously thought it was a '69 as mentioned by a few others here, but according to the novel it's a '73. Of course, the novel mentioned once it's a '73 and once it's a '74, but I think that was a typo. I'm pretty sure it's a '73.

And... I will have one someday. Exactly like Michael's. :D Cuz it's beautiful.

THE DODGE CHARGER

A 69 Charger is what the General Lee is in The Dukes of Hazard

You fucking people all too stupid to LIVE!!

Jesus fucking christ - it's people like you that give a bad name to human beings!

"OMG I love your icon!!" you make me want to fucking PUKE!

You don't know SHIT about classic American muscle cars because you don't know SHIT about anything other than blogging, twittering, and the condition of Britney Spears' pussy!!

Stop wasting the world's time with your fucking babble and do something productive and responsible with your fucking life!
What a coincidence you posted anonymously... how about YOU grow some BALLS and give us a name to go with your insults so we can reply to you properly? Aww, too scared of us blogging, twittering idiots? I thought so.

But I totally see how perusing an LJ community just to post childish insulting rants anonymously is a VERY productive and responsible thing to do with YOUR life.

dear lossefalme,

that i posted anonymously is coincident with what?
that's right, the clever opening to your vapid retort fell short due to a lack of logical association with anything relevant to...
what is this crap about again?
oh, yeah.
anyhow, please allow me to apologize for my impetuous, impulsive, immature, and near manic response to the erudite colloquium into which i errantly, and carelessly stumbled.
i realize now, after reading, cogitating, and passing through my alimentary canal, all that you carefully, thoughtfully, and wisely wrote, that i am but a fool.
in spite of that, can't we all just get along?
seriously, i want to be your friend.
do you have a facebook page?
as a measure of my sincerity, please accept my name, address, and phone number as a gesture of peace and reconciliation.
i understand why you insist that i be forthcoming with this information.
it must be strenuous spending 18 hours a day blogging and gaming in the dimly lighted basement of your parents' home.
i'm certain your regimen of twinkies and rock star is difficult to maintain with the stench of your parent's rotting corpses wafting through the vents from their bedroom closet.
the formaldehyde isn't helping is it?
perhaps if you'd shower and wear more than your GI joe underoos people wouldn't find it odd for a 300 pound, 47 year old stoner to do his grocery shopping at 0230 at the 7-11.
no, wait. i have you confused with a stereotype.
you're the one in the abandoned farmhouse full of stray cats outside lawrence; the one whose illegally run a phone line from the KANU transmitter shack to get internet access.
i understand they don't let you in the campus library any more after that crazy night when your lord of the rings fantasy role playing game got out of control.
but i digress.
after all, this supposed to be about me, not you.
as i was about to tell you, my name is jose jimenez.
my phone number is 626-398-0295.
my address is 2755 e sierra madre blvd, pasadena, ca 91107.
feel free to come by anytime, and we can discuss in person your objection to my comments.
don't forget to bring your favorite lube.
you'll need it for the fun and games.
i recommend the jalapeno flavor.
that reminds me, i need a new box of latex gloves.
you're not allergic to latex are you?
until then, may the force be with you!
Ooo very good. So clever and ingenious. Must have taken you a real long time to come up with all that. Another several minutes of your life spent doing extremely important and responsible stuff!!! I applaud your brilliance.


My ICON is just for you, since you forgot to mention Star Trek in your incredibly pointless rant.

Also, please continue to waste your life insulting me over on my own journal so you don't pollute this community any further.

Thanks and have lovely day, mi amigo. *^.^*
Oh gee, I forgot to mention that YOUR clever opening to your vacuous banter only proves the level of your amazing intelligence...

that i posted anonymously is coincident with what?

Let me help you out... I've only come across two rude and childish people on Live Journal, and both posted anonymously. Coincidence? No. Angry children with nothing to do with their life except wander the internet and insult people always post anonymously. And yes, you are one of those two people.

Don't forget... please continue your highly amusing rants on my own journal.

Gracious.

it's a 1973 dodge charger. the car goes through several minor changes, the first few episodes the car had the emblem on the rear pillar, it also had trim all the way around the windows and was some times a coupe and some times a hardtop, in the second season it lost the american racing wheels and got some mag 500 wheels and it lost the fiberglass hood and the scoop was more or less glued on and looks like shit and is always a coupe (the rear window dosen't roll down)

(Anonymous)

Im confused too.

no doubt it is a charger but I have a 68 Pontiac Le Mans convertible and the front end and grill are identical... so I'm also wondering if there are parts from more than one line of auto..
none the less its creative and beautiful..
maybe some GTO Judge parts...
I noticed the rear tail lite assembly is different on some of the shows also..
I too hope none are harmed in the making,,,hah
I always wince when they blow one up and get a little queasy as they don't make em like that anymore.
thanks.

JUST AN UPDATE

ANYONE WHO NEEDS TO BASH ANOTHER PERSON FOR NOT BEING SURE ON AN ANSWER FOR INWHICH THEY SAID NOT SURE IS REALLY THE ONE WHO HAS THE ISSUES ANY WHO HERES AN UPDATE ABOUT THE MICHAEL WESTIN CHARGER FORM BURN NOTICE..

READ THE DETAILS BELOW ON THAT SPECIFIC MODEL

In 1968, Dodge watched their NASCAR inspired Charger R/T fail to beat the Ford cars (the Ford Torino Talladega and the Mercury Cyclone Spoiler II) on the high-banks oval-tracks. The Dodge engineers went back to the wind tunnel and found the tunneled rear window caused lift and the gaping mouth induced drag. Dodge engineers made the rear window flush with the rest of the roof and put a 1968 Coronet Grille up front. The original Charger 500 prototype was a 1968 Charger R/T with a 426 Hemi. The prototype was painted in B5 Blue with a white stripe.

The Charger 500 prototype had a Torqueflite transmission, a white interior and 426 Hemi. The Charger 500 was tested for production, got the greenlight and was one of three models introduced in September 1968. The Charger 500 was standard with the 440 Magnum but the factory literature claims the 426 Hemi was standard. The Charger 500 had the Torqueflite standard and the same equipment standard as the R/T.
