Traded my Challenger

I've loved owning Challengers for the last few years, but I rarely drive my 392 these days. My daily driver performs almost as good, so there's no real urge to jump into the Challenger on a weekend, and I don't see the point of having it as garage art. So I finally pulled the plug and traded in my 2011 SRT8 GWE for a 2008 SRT10 Viper Coupe in the same color combo (Snakeskin Green with dual black stripes). I do the deal on Saturday. It is going to be a very long 4 days wait!

2008 SRT10 Viper Coupe - sold
2011 392 Challenger - traded
2009 SRT8 Challenger - traded
2006 SRT8 Magnum

I'm pink, therefore I'm Spam

Did the deal yesterday--I'm so happy! Here are a couple of 'glamor shots' from the original advertizement, plus a couple once I arrived home.
