You could be on to something, JQ. Sure "The End" has been predicted over many consecutive years, but I don't think even those people had in mind the looming shadow of a very real double-dip recession, nearly flat-lined economy, 18% effective unemployment, cash-broke govt, and a credit rating downgrade when they predicted "hard times" up ahead. We're pretty much on the ropes as a country. Wouldn't take much in the way of an additional incidental disaster to blow that neck artery wide open. There's pretty much no headroom left to shrug-off the unexpected like we would have done easily before. In that kind of environment, nobody is looking to buy something like a "Challenger", unless to fulfill some sort of bucket list before it is all over.
09 Challenger R/T automatic...4 tires, stick-on convex mirror, seats
It's not that I really needed 370 hp...but having 150+ hp riding shotgun at a moment's bidding w/o a 6000 rpm moonshot is what makes me feel like I'm in the right car for me. The roar of a v8 seals the deal!
The Google keyword is "ethanol-free gas". The truth is coming to light. Check out http://pure-gas.org/
