Man My first Challenger hasn't even arrived yet but I already hope that they are still building them when it eventually dies - hopefully many many miles down the road - by then I can afford an SRT-8

The Challenger's first Best of Show award was given at the Challenger's debut at the North American, i.e., Detroit Auto Show, which, coincidentally, is also where the new fifth generation Camaro made its debut. Awww, better luck next time Chevy.

GEO's Die......Challengers age gracefully........they get face lifts and overhauls! Look at the awesome 1970's Challengers that are restored



1978 IH Scout II
2002 Chevy 1500 Silverado
2005 Ford Mustang
2008 Dodge Challenger SRT8

DRIVE IT LIKE YOU STOLE IT.......

Dodge Challenger is the Best Car. Whether in the 70s or nowadays.
Wherever I am, when I tell that I ordered a 2012 Dodge Challenger you will see mouths opening...
This is the ultimate retro-classic-sports car ever built in the history (in my point of view).

Good and bad news.

Good: J.D. Power & Associates has named the Challenger the Best Midsize Sporty Car in its 2011 Initial Quality Study.

Bad: Dodge came in dead last of all the car manufacturers.

Also, the Charger did poorly.

I dream of the Challenger of being the lighter car, but being called midsize? I am surprised, even I will admit when I have been in a fat chick, but state, "damn she is fun!"

Dodge Challenger 392 SRT8(Green w/Envy) Mods in order: oil catch-can, K&N air filter, Petty's Strut brace front/rear, tran brace, Escort 9500IX(can't stop going fast), ARH LT[Catless]/Catback Exhaust, B&G ECU Tune.
