General Challenger DiscussionThis section contains general discussion about the Dodge Challenger. If it does not fit into a more specific area, it probably belongs in here. (Dodge Challenger General Discussion)
Drove our Challenger to run a couple last minute holiday errands and while I was waiting for my wife to come back out to the car, an older man parked his Astro van and came over to me in the Challenger. He said "abosutely beautiful car, can I look at it". I gave him the tour, opened the trunk, hood, showed him the six speed. He was in awe. A big grin the whole time he admired the car. He thanked me for showing him the Challenger and as he walked back to his van he turned to me and said "enjoy that beautiful Challenger, I'm glad you bought it, you are driving my dream car". He waved and got in his van and drove off. Enjoy
these cars are awesome.
We should start a "my challenger got compliment today" sticky
problem is it would be the biggest thread, on any forum, in the entire universe, or multi-verse

Driving on the freeway a month or so ago in very heavy traffic (i.e. "Keep your eyes on the road!"), a 20-something in a big white SUV did a triple-take at my car. I definitely view that as a compliment. Picking my daughter up at school and seeing the kids' eyes track the car as I pull in - definitely a compliment. Having a few attorneys at the law firm for which I work question a co-worker as to "Who owns that awesome car?" - definitely a compliment.
Last weekend, had a beautifull saturday so i went for a ride in the Challenger. I live on a side street off a main road and there is a large parking lot at the end of my street (actually for the company i work for) and there were a few kids playing on thier bikes and scooters, probably 11-12 years old or so. As i was downshifting, slowing down to turn up my street, all 3 kids stop what they were doing and take full notice of the Challenger, pointing and staring it down as i drive by! So, i popped it into 1rst gear around the corner and hammered it for them goin up the street. Didn't think anything more about it after i pulled into my driveway, but a few minutes later after i went inside i hear some kids somewhere around the house, no big deal as there are alot kids on my street. Then i heard "that car is sweet" and "that is so beautifull", i look out and it was the 3 boys from the parking lot checking out the Challenger!! They got a big kick out it! Hope maybe i influenced them in a good way, American muscle is what it's all about!
Great story. I agree with Buckye Nut the attention never gets old. It seems no matter where I am folks come up to me and ask about my Challenger. I love seeing the reaction when I pop open the hood or when they check out the interior. When I was in the market to puchase a vehicle I looked at everything, Honda, Toyota, Subaru, Nissan, GM, BMW, etc. and after much thought the Challenger SRT8 was the only car for me. Did I spend more money than I planned? Yes. Does it get great gas mileage? No. Is it a bad ass muscle car? YES It is the only car for me and I'm assuming for everyone here...
