Goodbye, beautiful machine.

All things must come to an end. Depending on how you feel about them, that can be either a happy or sad experience. If you're a fan of the classic American muscle car, the Dodge Charger, then the video below will probably be the latter for you. 

After seven generations in production, Dodge is calling it quits on the famed automobile. 

TikTok user @evanbettanhausen posted a video about what he discovered under the hood of the last Dodge Chargers that will be coming off the assembly line. 

People were by and large sad to hear the news about these cars coming to an end. 

As @slickdaddy_tv laments, "I remember how Dodge struggled before the Charger, it brought the company back. I don't think it will survive without it." While @jekahriking bemoaned, "I'll never get one of my dream cars." With @jennyramirez sharing that sentiment, writing, "My dream ruined." And @arneshiabaldwin asking, "Why are they going to stop selling their best cars?"  

Turns out that while the Dodge Charger is beloved by many, it's also a gas guzzler, which is not the direction that Dodge's parent company, Stellantis, wants to focus production on going forward. They instead want to focus production on creating more electric engines and batteries. 

Initially, the Charger was made back in the mid to late 60's as a more upscale coupe to compete in the market place against the AMC Marlin, another car that's long since been discontinued. There's no denying it's had a great, iconic, run and many are disappointed it's coming to an end. But that's the nature (and power) of corporate decisions about the future of the marketplace. One day they lead to the birth of something beloved and iconic and the next they're taking it away.
