If you loved the big "muscle cars" of the 60's and 70's you'll be excited to know that one of the legends is coming back.

You remember the Charger, the General Lee on the Dukes of Hazzard, it was a 1969 Charger. Rick Johnston owns a '66 Hemi-powered charger. He owned one like it in high school and found this one in a barn over in Sand Springs. He loves these old muscle cars. "To me they're just big hot rods. A family could still get in it and enjoy it but it was enough of a hot rod to chase the other muscle cars down."

No one is exactly sure what the new Charger will look like but there are enough pictures of concept car around to get fans excited.

Dodge says the racing version could be a Daytona in February and the street model in dealer showrooms later in the spring.
