In addition to the paint stripes, how about
- different spoiler options
- at least 1 other interior color/combination (love the radar red option but I'm talking the slate gray)
- convertible! 'nuff said.
- numbered special editions (how about an AAR tribute car?)
- better tire options (just 2 options from GY is horrible)

Of course the 8spd would have been nice by now. I think the Daimler agreement tied their hands to the 5spd for longer than they would have liked. With an 8spd, we'd have 3.55s or 3.73s (autos) in the rear from the factory and still have respectable MPG (maybe enough to shed the gas guzzler tax).

Actually, the petty garage rear wing would be awesome on our cars and a window louver too!



I love American muscle cars like a thrice-divorced 45-year old tax attorney loves barely legal coeds. That is to say; passionately, inappropriately and almost certainly inadequately while muttering whispered apologies to the beautiful thing I am probably ruining forever.

That should be standard on ALL track pack equipped cars at least.

Maybe the heritage edition should come with staggered wheels and tires, vinyl top (option), full gauges, and SRT interior/brakes?

It would also be cool if the 392 cars came with forged motors. I mean, they would rev faster.....at least that would be my compelling argument to Mr Gilles.
