Chris’s 1969 Dodge Charger RT

Representing the STA-BIL® Brand Fuel Treatments

CRO-STABIL-Chris Giardina 1969 Dodge Charger RTThis is my 1969 Dodge Charger R/T that I have owned and restored since 1997.

The car has gone through many transformations through out the years. I now have a few sets of wheels to change out as my mood changes. From stock steelies and dog dish caps to Cragars.

My Charger’s image has been used on many items from being made into a Jhonny Lightning diecast to t-shirts and calendars.

Thanks for looking!
