Just pulled the Challenger out

Had it up for winter, but I just couldn't stop myself today. It's about 46F and sunny. I went home for lunch and took it out of the barn. Started it up and listen to the growl of the engine. I missed my baby. I am going to cut out early from work today and put some miles on her.

LOL, and the DR. recommends at least a 1 hour dose of medication.

I'm missing mine too; I haven't driven it since 4 o'clock this afternoon. And I'll drive it tomorrow too if it is too cold to take the motorcycle.

then by Saturday it's going back up to @ 77 or 78.

Haven't driven mine since August. Suppose to be dry and 59 degrees this weekend so I think I will take it out to a toy drive/canned food car show this coming weekend. Can't wait....I'm doing it for the kids.

I got mine out today, mid 50's and sunny, but I didnt have it in a full-blown winter storage mode anyway. It goes out mainly on weekends, and only when the roads are dry, just hit 1500 miles today and I bought it in June. My drive to work is 40 miles one way, I have an 04 GTP Comp G that I drive daily.

I absolutely love how this thing responds to the cooler air, I punched it today at about 15mph and lit the tires up pretty easily, then hit the paddle at just the right time to get a solid second gear chirp.
