Fans of the classic Mopar dual-snorkel hood from the '60s and '70s will be able to add that look to the 2019 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat — both regular and Widebody variants. Dodge claims the hood is inspired by the classic hood designs of yore but with a "more sinister" updated look. The new hood will be fully functional and help the 707-horsepower, supercharged 6.2-liter V-8 gulp air.

If Dodge is going to bring classic muscle-car designs back, it should also bring back the giant wing from the Dodge Charger Daytona and Plymouth Superbird. Hot take: Giant wings are cool as hell and should be on as many cars as possible. Since Toyota lacks the courage to put one on the upcoming Supra, it's up to Dodge to do what is right and good.
Other staples of the era that Dodge should bring back:
- Affordable performance cars — that Hellcat will set you back around $65,000.
- Being hit in the nose with a football right before a big date
- Remembering laughter
- Commander Cody and His Lost Planet Airmen — yeah yeah, they're still touring. Kind of.
- The Dodge A100 pickup
We should have more details on any further updates to the Hellcat if and — hopefully — when summer rolls around.
