From the responses I'm seeing from people who are in the know, that Black Ghost Challenger was hyped up way beyond reality.  A stone stock street Hemi wouldn't have stood a chance against the heavily modified cars that existed on Woodward Avenue at the time, and in any case the people who were actually there had never seen the car.
