Feeling down, Bunkie? Forget Prozac, Red Bull or your favorite ginseng supplement; simply take a few passes down the quarter mile, supercharger at full 7.5-psi scream, in Callaway’s C16. You’re guaranteed to smile, even if you try not to. Allow me to explain.

Launch at maybe 1500 rpm, where the big 325-section Michelin Pilots lock their silica grappling hooks in the pavement as a full 616 horsepower’s worth of Roots-blown LS2 Corvette V-8 punts the car forward like a place-kicked football. Feel it? The flesh on your cheekbones ripples back toward your ears in a sort of g-induced perma-grin. Of course, this is second-nature to centrifuge-trained astronauts and rocket-sled test pilots, but this sort of acceleration is uncommon—and hugely addictive—in a road-going, street-licensed automobile.

Reeves Callaway's latest is based on the C6 Corvette chassis, one heck of a blank canvas. Paul Deutschman, the talented Canadian who's penned Callaway Corvette bodywork for two decades, is again responsible for the sculptural transformation, where the only original remaining Corvette pieces are the roof panel, the rearview mirrors and the rear hatch. To the Corvette's original attachment points they bolt the new gel-coated fiberglass panels, retaining all the original cutlines. Interestingly, this is the first Callaway where the panels went from CAD data directly to the molds without first producing a full-size model of the car.

That "thang" is Daimler-Chrysler Corporation's new spin on a muscle-car classic that rocked the American enthusiast-car market when it was introduced in 1966. With its swoopy styling and hidden headlights, the Charger was a bestseller that lasted through 1974 when the company finally pulled the plug due to stifling emissions standards. Unlike the original, which was a coupe, the 2006 Dodge Charger R/T is a 4-door sedan with a chopped-top look reminiscent of a 1950s' California custom car. Love it or hate it, the new car's styling does attract attention.
