Well, my wife and I are laughing, I read her the post, and we had a similar discussion on hey whadaya think about me getting a new Challenger? She insisted the color be bright! (are they all alike or what? women that is) Of course not so e z to get a bright color right now. Really waiting on B5 again. (I can hope) Hello Dodge? Come in pleaze!
I debate the SRT/RT thing all the time in my head. The incentives offered tend to sway the financial side of me. I mean now there is like $2500 on an R/T. So if the gap of the SRT to RT wasn't large enough, then there is that for thought. On top of, I do agree the Classic looks the best still. But, I have driven 3 392's, 2 sticks and 1 auto. They are animals! I drove an 12 R/T automatic as well, and buddy that car was quick and tight. I prefer the 6 spd, but could live with an automatic. (just don't tell my wife)
Do I tie up another $10k in an SRT, and it depreciates? I dunno it's pretty cool. It's 1 or 2 seconds faster in the 1/4 mile, but my car has never been there. And the 0-60 timer has never been used. The the debate roars on.
So, here is the thing, a car guy, will find a way to justify this in either direction and feel absolutely fine about it. Lol, we all do it, all of us car guys can justify a car or car related purchase. Well yeah, but this one is (insert what is applicable here) newer, brighter, louder, more HP, looks better, has chrome etc.
Hey man good luck with decision, wanted to let you know, you are not the only one.
PS - Aren't the sway bars all the same size now? And oh yeah, price an SRT brake job, then price an R/T. Big difference. I am not pro or con, just info and food for thought.
