Had to laugh at this list
What makes a vehicle a grandpa car
Sitting at number 3 on the list
2012 Dodge Challenger
If your grandpa was just getting his driver’s licence when the original Challenger muscle car was at its peak in the early-1970s, he’s sure to love the retro-inspired modern version. Unlike the more coupe-like Ford Mustang or Chevrolet Camaro, the more robust Challenger two-door is much easier to get in and out of.
And for those with creaky bones or back problems, the Dodge coupe offers a posterior-friendly ride as it glides and wallows down the highway more serenely than the Ford and Chevy. Plus, with its wide-opening doors and roomy back seat, there’s room for three grandkids in the back of the Dodge.

This grandpa doesn't have a Challenger, but he does have a SRT8 Charger. Oops, KB supercharged SRT8 Charger and a Magnum R/T.
Grandpa's really do need those 4 doors for the grand kids.
Well, the Mayans and other Soothsayers were right, the end has begun.
Common sense is so rare it should be considered a superpower
I'm a grandpa and my first car was a challenger (1972) and yes would love to have a new one!
My Grandpa likes the Challengers, and it seems like most of the Challengers here are owned by the 60+ crowd.
No fooling, I own a Challenger, and just yesterday I saw a beautiful black with red stripe accented R/T. I have a Black SRT8 that I absolutely adore and even this one turned my head.
"WOW", I thought, "That one is very tastefully done. Bravo, good sir!" Just as it drove by and I was admiring her and thumbs upping the driver, I see the unmistakable, horrifying image of a trailer hitch with a gloss black painted scooter lift platform on the back.
Mortified, I shrank back into my seat as if I had foreseen my own destiny. I vowed then and there, if I lose my legs, I'm staying in the Challenger and eating at drive thru windows and watching movies on the mygig.

Obviously the writer has never driven or even riden in a Challenger, especially the SRT8 version. Wallows down the highway is an apt description for old Caddys, Buicks and Lincolns.
I'm a grandpa and the room and comfort was the deciding factor over the mustang, ( muatang was faster, but you could only get a case of beer in the backseat, other wise useless. ) i love my srt-8, ican drive for hours and never get fatigued or tired. And i fit 3 grandkids in the backseat, my first new cae was a 1974 challenger raylle, 360 four barrel, 4 spd, 3:55 posi,
I'm waiting for the 'Cuda. And I'm not a Grandpa. That I'm aware of.

This grandpa drives a Magnum. My wife the, grandma drives a Town & Country.
An oldie but a goodie, with an edit
I wanna die like my grandpa, who died peacefully in his sleep not screaming like all the passengers in the
Challenger he was driving..
I see more woman driving base Challengers & Chargers in this area.
The old people drive base 300's.
kudos to all the grandpas still having fun!! The Challenger enthusiasts around here are a mixture of young and older alike.
