Saved for 5 years

I saved money for 5 years to get my 2013 challenger. I love the size of my challenger ! I gave my son my 1990 corvette convertible after his third combat tour. I felt he deserved it. I fell in love with the challenger all over again in 2008. But I didn't have the room in the garage or the finances at the time. So I saved for 5 years and then found the one I wanted 500 miles away. Had the local dealer get it for me. I bought it 4/15/2013. Yep the government got their money and I got my challenger !!

Nice car, I see that you got the anti-gravity option, nice how it hangs there so well.

It's funny to see your post today. I drove my Challenger to work today and was thinking about Dodge sales and some of the newbie posts here, and wondering if most new buyers are not really that familiar with the car and the Challenger tradition, and maybe not that familiar with shifting and driving a real muscle car. I first figured most people who loved the car like I did have found a way to buy theirs a few years ago, one way or another. But then I realized I barely could afford mine back in 2011 with my other priorities, probably shouldn't have at the time, then I pictured all the people calming biding their time until they could achieve their dream of owning the challenger. How many other old-style, retro MOPAR nuts are out their saving and planning like I did for 2 years, until they finally achieve the car that they want and need. Frankly, I often plan a little and obtain first, then figure out how to make it work afterwards, but God bless those that do it the other way around and achieve their dream car. I hope the car is everything you were hoping it to be, and that it gives you a smile every day when you get in it, or look at it.

Your son DEFINITELY deserves that nice Vette. Three combat tours, tell him that I thank him for his service, times three, and thanks to you and your family for supporting him. It is kids like that who keep this country strong, and on the righteous path.

Congrats on your purchase and welcome to ChallengerTalk!
That's a very nice Challenger you got there, definitely worth the 5 year save!

Not driving your car to keep your mileage low is like saving your wife for the next guy.

ragtop4spt6spd outstanding write up!!!

You are 100% in your write up! All I know is that the challenger is one hell of a nice car and I just love mine and I hope that other appreciate theirs as most of us should. I have a lot of respect for mine and any other SRT Challenger that I see out on the road and on this forum!
