Welcome to the Challenger of the Day Website
Hey, a little Challenger never hurt ‘nobody! I grew up in the Bronx in the ‘70's and Muscle Cars were all around me well into the ‘80’s. My older brother would take me to the bicycle shop so we could buy little cars picked out from the Matchbox and Hot Wheels displays. In time I took my younger brother to do the same. Cars of all sizes became very cool to me in their own way and on their own scale, especially Muscle Cars!
I started a blog and website in 2012 to showcase the die cast Challengers and the full scale Challengers they were based on. My dream was to take and post a picture of a Challenger every day and share some of the smiles that it brought to me with the world. My original goal has always been to make people smile. Challengeroftheday.com is a vehicle to make this happen.
Every day is a Challenger Convention for me. I love taking photos of full size cars and scaled down versions. I try to capture the essence of the cars I am photographing - no matter what size. I want to capture the joy I feel and share it. I want to make people as happy looking at the pictures as I am taking them.
I love life and appreciate how fortunate I am. I have been able to make a lot of people smile since I landed in the driver’s seat of my 2011 Dodge Challenger. Now I'm smiling more than ever in my 2019 Scat Pack Challenger. I’ve also made some really great friends as a result of the Challenger connection to a shared passion. Not just a shared passion for Muscle Cars either but for the secret power they represent. The power to make people smile!
