Watching an auction of Aussie muscle and hero cars can sometimes be a dispiriting exercise. Itís nice for the owners to see the values of their pride and joy on the rise, but if youíre entering the market for the first time it seems a little daunting.

Fear not. There is an incredible history of locally-assembled metal from Mopar and there are still some rich pickings in amongst it. Some have race history, some just missed out, while others were just big old cruisers that have been given a new lease of life thanks to the changing tastes of local enthusiasts.

We picked the brains of a variety of folk to come up with this group of five gems, some of which you might score for just a few grand if youíre game enough to tackle a full resto. There are others where you can get an absolute ripper for the price of a used Commodore.

In any case, itís a whole lot more fun than worrying about your superannuation and thereís a fair chance youíll get a decent return on your investment. Enjoy!
