We love our Challenger. We belong to a small club and take frequent rides through the NC, SC, TN and GA mountains.




My other hobbies are trailer camping,




model building







trail hiking and spending time with family....

Cheap; fast; reliable: you can only choose two

Me, the real cheap stuff is my heart stealer. I love weight training. Not at some glitzy, foo-foo gym but at home or alongside my semi at a truck stop or rest area. 275 lbs of dumbbells from the passenger floorboard, 45 to 75 minutes of terrible bliss and then shower off on the catwalk between tractor and trailer with my gallon of water, soap and shampoo. Weather extremes will serve to toughen the core.

Well crafted little models for sure! I was never very good at that although I did give it hell back in the day. Revell, particularly warships and hot rods. I then moved into the Ed "Big Daddy" Roth Rat Fink collection.

to many hobbies: I have a 70's style dirt track race car with a 38 chev body. Just sold a IMCA open wheel dirt track car, i also have a 72 Javlin sst and am building a S gauge model railroad and slpot track approx size 8 wide and 30 foot long. In the process of restoring the 38 chev dirt track car.IOts the most fun to drive. You set in the center of the car over the transmission. Gas pedal on right side of trans and the break and clutch on the left side.or you an set it up as a hand operated clutch. My challenger is a 2011 sxt wioth the sst option.

That's pretty cool! My husband used to race IMCA B mods on the dirt track. Have you ever been to Boon?

No i haven't been to Boone. Hope to make that trip in 2013. My son has been there. We had talked about tyaking our cars out for the nationals at one time. But he sold his and bought a crate late model. The open wheel mods are not popular in georgia.Only one track is running them once a month.

By "Cheap" I mean that one of my favorite guitars to this day is an old Ibanez RG that I bought back when I was in high school. Bought it brand new back then for $129 and aside from getting a set of better humbuckers, a few set ups by a professional here and there, and routine work (needed new fret wires and fingerboards on the uppers), the thing is basically the same as the day I bought it. I've owned and played nicer guitars but this one still has "That feel" and more importantly "That sound!"

As for solid wood vs. laminate - on an acoustic, I don't know about that either... my Martin is solid spruce top and laminate otherwise. Plays great, sounds great both plugged in and not. I have 5 other acoustics all solid wood and ranging in price and size - the Martin sounds the best. Followed closely by my old Alvarez that my broke buddies chipped in and bought me back in the late 90s (which means it must have been the cheapest guitar they could find!).

I'm no professional musician, but I had my time when I thought I would be. My days of performing seem to be long behind me and my skills are very obviously on the downtrend. At this point in my life, my audience is a girlfriend who tries to be nice for as long as she can before telling me she can't hear the TV, and a crazy cat that runs around the house when I play... Average to slightly below average instruments suit me just fine.

It's not that HPL can't sound good, because it can (especially when combined with a solid wood top like yours) but it won't sound as good as an all solid wood body...that's just acoustics 101.

As far as the Jack White comments on cheap guitars....well I find him to be a little hypocritical. He says that, but every time I see him perform he has some seriously expensive guitars, amps, gear, etc.

High end guitars are a lot like high end cars. The cheaper ones are perfectly functional to get from point A to point B, but still people buy Challengers.
