I had no clue when I bought my R/T Redline that I would not only have to pay for the car but also pay for all the mods I'd want to do lol...

I've barely had it 6 months yet all I want to keep doing is more & more mods... The car alone made my budget tighter & now after joining this forum & seeing the endless possibilities my bank account is looking thinner & thinner haha...

So far I've done the basics... Plus installing a new stereo system as I type this... But my urge to do more is growing every day haha... I do have a background in finance though so I do understand not to buy what I can't afford to put myself in a hole but it sure is tough to just "window shop" for now... Why didn't any one warn me???

Haha all joking aside... It's such a blast owning a car like this... My first I actually bought by myself (I'm 25)... Everyone is always asking about it or stopping to take pictures... And it's not even the premium model lol...

Sorry for the rambling novel... I guess I just wanted to share my excitement & joy I have with Big Booty Judy everyday... As well as keeping up & reading ChallengerTalk everyday... I may not comment on many posts cuz I'm a muscle car newbie but this forum has really changed the way I look at cars & I'm learning A LOT... Just wish I would've joined sooner haha...

If you had joined sooner you would have spent more money by now. I live near speedlogix. Kind of an addiction

Immortal1 has one of the best signatures ever and it reads:

"There's a thin line between modding and mental illness"

I'm about done modding, all I need is a 430rbz. :satan:

That mod bug is highly contagious. I am waiting for my Flowmaster American Thunder Catback to be delivered. Been tracking it and should get it tomorrow! I feel like a kid on Christmas Eve.

Gotta have !!

I just dropped some serious cash on KW V2 coil overs, A whole mess of Pedders bushings and sway bar. If I don't stop, I'll be sleeping in the garage with my Challenger.

The "NEW" Dog House ! :silly:

I feel like a kid on a Christmas Day... After I finish tearing away the wrapping paper from one gift I'm asking where's the next one?

Do what you can comfortably afford, and just learn to be content. Pay the car off as early as you can so it does not become a burden.

Hey man just be glad you don't own an old muscle car and modern muscle car. You would always be broke! Have fun and enjoy. These are the best muscle cars.

Oh man I understand completely. I modded my 67 vw bug to do 14 secs in the quarter mile and am deep into subaru transplant in that one. My Cummins Ram stock was 175 hp and 400 ft lbs of torque but now has 300hp and 600 ft lbs. I did the skip shift eliminator and a subwoofer on my RT but I'm now fighting my addiction and want to just drive the Challenger and finish the VW.

This is one of the reasons I don't frequent this forum much any more. I always end up reading about all of the things I want.

Too many hobbies, not enough money....
