About the evolution of the value of the Challenger, Mr. Lavigne is rather optimistic. “People often say that the market will go down as the baby-boomers, the people who tripaient on these cars when they were new, will die. But we said the same thing of the Tri-Five Chevrolet (the Chevrolet years 55 to 57) : yes, the market of the common car has come down, but the best, the most beautiful, the most equipped, the most rare, they are still going to retain a good value. “
