  • So glad this car was never ruined through the years. SWEET RIDE

  • Is it just me seeing things, or does it look like, now, that the Challenger is sort of bottom-heavy, almost sagging in the end? It might just be the angle, or a modification since this was a street racer, but in some angles it looks perfectly level and others it looks slanted downwards.

  • damn this story got me in the end for sure dont give away my car damn...rest easy OG.

  • only two mins in, it's already awesome

  • Glad to see it stay in the family. Good man.

  • This is a movie

  • This here needs to be a movie!

  • Well, add my tears.

  • I just wanted to see a cool vid about my favorite car. Didn't expect to get an epic story that would make me a lil misty. I'm going to go hug my Chally now. Awesome story.

  • It made me cry, lost my Dad a couple of years ago...absolutely a must watch. This story is so compelling and heart warming, I would recommend it to any parent, and Fathers Day is coming up....beautiful story!!!

  • chaos video

  • We had some tough young crazy dudes named the Murray’s when I was a child . Their father bought one of those 426 cars for them . Man they drove it into the ground . Holey S that thing was way too fast !!!

  • What a great story.

  • American muscle cars from the late 60s and early 70s will never go out of style.

  • The married weapon rapidly choke because test comparatively fail barring a illegal digestion. funny, psychedelic society

  • Black Vin diesel is not a myth,

  • What an incredible story of a wonderful family bonded by their love of this impressive car! Loved this video. Thank you for sharing!

  • This video just made me tear of joy the love of a father is FOREVER Long Live The Black Ghost

  • They need to make movies about this can make good master piece

  • I love the car keep it original

  • wow, what a story. this is what reality tv should be like.

  • Thank you for sharing this mans great story

  • A car guy is a car guy for a reason everyone just remember this please

  • Tesla enters the room

  • What an amazing story, of an amazing man, and an amazing piece of history.

  • Within two years I had two police reports where she had left them. A year later she gave them to me 100%. It's sad how the women work the courts

  • Wonderful people, great car, touching story.

  • Man my feels that things a legend and that story is beautiful rip to the Zulu warrior.

  • For me it’s not the car it’s the story it tells and what journeys the owners had with it

  • This car sucks...sorry. My 71 Dodge Adventurer pickup can destroy this..factory. And I had a truck 383. YOURE A GOOF BUDDY

  • The $100 bill lesson lasted.

  • DARK KNIGHT SPECIAL

  • 13:51 "Overhead counsel"... 😆 CONSOLE, not "counsel". Maybe I'm just O.C.D., but I hear that at endless car shows, and it's a huge pet peeve of mine.

  • Nobody around Detroit back then had a built street car that could beat the stock Hemi Challengers quarter mile time of mid 13 seconds?? I find that hard to believe. The Hemi Challenger wasn't a slouch, by any means, but a 13 second car isn't a very fast street race car. Even in the 70's street drag cars were faster than that.

  • Please never sell, it's so rare to find a can as rare, with such a story. Not about how much we can make, but preserve. God bless you and your family.

  • This is amazing story. Should be made into a movie.

  • You had me in tears god bless you and your family

  • Thats funny at 10:45 when the guy says "im not gonna lie it hurt chevy to not have a car with a hemi". GM sold twice as many cars as mopar, and they didn't even sponsor a team in nascar. Good Documentary though.

  • Is ok but still my favorite muscle car is a Porsche 928 . the only sport car in the World that have ever won car of the year. And 1986 record fastest production car in the World .. That is history.

  • shame Detroit doesn't match the prestige of the Era of this car

  • Fantastic story

  • What a great story! I love car people and this is just another reason why.

  • that is the best story ive heard about my favorite car ever. Ive been in love with the 70 challenger since i wa a kid. and now i love it even more .

  • I love that u hold on thats a beautiful car I can go on all the cars my dad had hold it my pop will be 69 this year

  • Had a 70 Challenger not a Hemi, Got memories. None that compare great story. Keep the legend going God bless!

  • Those this dude have an insta or shit like that?

  • I started watching this documentary and was so excited and I ended up in tears by the end of it. Legend of a car, legend of a man, legend of family. Love to see it.

  • I’ve heard stories about this car living in Nebraska. Crazy!

  • Pink Floyd Breathe wasnt out in 70 .... just throwing it tout there. They hit their BIG stride in 74 or 75.

  • This is a very very good story.

  • I wish they would make a movie

  • great story

  • Awesome just Awesome, thank you for sharing your story. I've been a Dodge guy my whole life, never been able to get Hemi but maybe someday before I'm gone it could happen. MOPA or no Car, or the way we say it in Boston Cah.. Absolutely love it!!!

  • I can't believe how much I like the top! I never would have guessed that I'd like a vinyl top.

  • Very touching story! Thank you for sharing!!

  • I met SFC Qualls many years ago, when I was still in the Army, and I went to talk to some kids in Detroit. Over the course of a dinner, he made an impression on me that has lasted 20 years. I had no idea he was such a legend in the car community. Thx for keeping her on the road and in the family.

  • Lived in detroit. Loved it! 69 road runner.413 wedge.tri power. 410 dana.

  • Godfrey Qualls….a true American hero. Thanks for this story.

  • LIving across the border... In Windsor, Onario... Growing up Ive always watched the cars going by for woodward dream cruse, and acted just like the little boy in this video! i hope to do something just like this as i grow up! with a challenger aswell! tears to my eyes! great video! Rest In Peace, and love too the family!

  • And this type of car that does 13 mpg, is why the USA has to make sure it dominates the world in order to secure massive amounts of foreign oil. btw, the oil is non renewable, and so we are in big trouble when it gets harder to secure enough.

  • Wow, didn't think I'd be crying today.

  • Wonderful story! Thank you for sharing this with everyone.

  • God Bless you all...Salute to all the car fanatics, family, friends. Amazing video!!!

  • I coiuld listen to this video of past remminissin all day!!!!

  • The ghost of GQ still lives in this car. He was the car

  • Cars. My grandfather's Chryslers. My dad changing the points on my 68 Dodge. The look on my son's face when my car fires in the garage and things fall off the walls. The same look that kid in the video had. Getting my teething daughter to sleep by going for a drive when nothing else worked. Cars. For some of us, they're family. No, it's not for sale. Would you sell your mother? Great back story. A street racing cop in the motor city. That's what movies are made of. Thanks for sharing it .

  • I'm not crying..you are.

  • I guess it never came across the 1970 GS stage one because the ghost would’ve disappeared

  • Man those Dodge seat covers, we had them in my Mom’s 1965 Belvedere!

  • Godfrey sounded like a man of God and a Patriot who valued freedom! So he was aptly named!

  • Man you had a Mustang bike like me, mine was burgundy!

  • That’s a sweet car, “The Black Ghost!”, nice!

  • Is this a reupload? I could have sworn I watched this on YT a few years ago lol

  • Great story, a movie would be great... OG respect..

  • Who’s cutting onions?!

  • yet dominic torreto had to tune his 1970 dodge chager R/T

  • see theres dod 313 and last but not least wadup do

  • charelston,st and heres how i will prove i was born in detroit

  • i was born in detroit

  • 1970 dodge challenger fast and sleek i bet that car had a v8 engine

  • Might make a good movie here, but still not a documentary---....too much BS here....and the REAL horsepower of the 426 was 350 net installed in the car, NOT 425 hp--that was what it put out on a bench.....a 2021 Challenger with base 5.7 V8 puts out more at 375 net.....

  • I wish me, and my father had a relationship like this.

  • Damn only the real car people will cry watching this

  • Definitely gotta see a movie on this story soon

  • Incredible Story! Thank You For You Service GQ💜🇺🇸 _Never Restore That Priceless American Legend! Every Scratch Dent and Any Imperfection Is What Makes It Most Perfect! Thank You For This Amazing Journey!🇺🇸

  • Much respect to you, your Father, and your entire Family, Stumbled onto the video. Great Story, Great Car, God Bless, Semper Fi.

  • I have to say this hit me square in the chest when he gives his son the map. Dec 21 2015 was ten days after I got my 2015 Dodge Charger SE and that Christmas I went on my first Christmas drive in my first MOPAR. The story is amazing, a man and his car and his legacy with it. I’ll admit I cried at the map part because I was waiting to hear what happened to Godfrey. But this was a great watch

  • Toge racers: Finally a worthy opponent, our battle will be legendary

  • watched this several months ago and today it came on while AFK. as soon as i see that car i know its the black ghost

  • That was a very fast car.. the best race I every had was with a 1970 hemi challenger 4 speed but my 1968 yenko camaro 427 v8 with about 650 hp.. beat the hemi by about 8 car lenghts up to over 120 mph on the freeway late one saturday night....
