First new car in 30 years

When the Challenger was re-introduced,it was the first time in almost 30 year that I considered buying a new car.My main transportation has been trucks and I've had several new ones over the years but as for cars it's only been antiques and classics and a new Jeep back in 01.
I consider these my fun summer rigs and still have most of them,but I finally was able to order a new R/T Shaker a couple months ago with out even driving one.The looks alone was good enough for me to love it.
I just picked it up last Friday and after driving it all weekend, am just as in love with the way it drives.
I've got a feeling my other summer rigs won't get much use from here out.
It took 30 years to be interested in a new car but boy was it worth the wait.

They look like the 100th anniversary edition wheels.

As I have grown older, I've learned that pleasing everyone is
impossible- but pissing everyone off, is a piece of cake.

They are shaker wheels.
They are basically the same as 100th anniversary wheels except that the shaker wheels have black pockets, whereas the 100th anniversary wheels have grey pockets.
