Alrite, let's say the put the Challenger into production... Do you think insurance companies are going to insure you when you walk in there and tell them you just bought a 2007/8 Dodge Challenger with a 6.1L Hemi 6 spd manual, and 425hp?? And if you do get insurance we're gonna be payin out our butts for it i bet!! So yeah.. jus was thinkin about the insurance part, it could be interesting especially since i'll be 19 when/if the Challenger comes out and i'm definetely getting one... Could be an interesting little hurdle... jus figured i'd listen to what everyone else had to say about this topic...:confused:

they insure my Vipers and Vettes and Prowlers, I see no reason not to insure Challengers...I have a clean driving record(1 ticket in 37 years of driving) and never had an accident...

ps....I have a Jeep SRT8 coming in anytime, no problem there either....

19? You'll be sending the insurance guy's kids to college with the money you will spend. Too bad Ebay stopped people from selling their kidneys :D

Well I can see insurance being pretty high for single males under 25, unless their parents give them a hand (seems to happen quite a bit where I live), but I haven't have to worry about that for some time now - I guess that's one of the advantages of getting old :eek:

Funny thing, though - insurance is actually cheaper on my GTO than it is on my Hemi Ram, go figure...:rolleyes:

FWIW

Don't let a parent or anyone else go on the title with you. If you have an accident, your fault or not, and get sued, the other person on the title has liability - at least they do in Florida.

I worry more about the gas milage! I'm 32 and never have had a ticket, and I don't plan on driving much, so insurance I would hope won't kill me!

You insur will go down when you hit 25 so you only get raped another 6 yrs.
It also depends where you live, I am fortunate to live in not one BUT TWO of the highest insur rate areas in the country, S Florida and S Calif. lucky me :(

It is the price of playing the game though, you have to bite the bulitt just like gas prices. As they say don't hate the playa hate the game.

If I was 20, I would worry about insurance. Since I'm 43 with a wife and two kids its not a problem. When I was 17 and had a 68 Barracuda 340 Formula S 4 speed, the car and more importantly the insurance were in my mother's name ( a lot cheaper).

That's very true. I'll jus go wit my name on the title and then jus go under my dad or somethin on the insurance. That'll keep it a bit down until i'm 25 i guess, but idc i was jus curious what everyone had to say about the insurance. I want that Challenger, regardless of insurance, it's worth it...

My insurance when I bought the srt-4 stayed the same for both the dakota and the srt-4, I was affraid they would rape me with two performance vehicles. I am 22 and soon to be married, then it will go down from 75 a month to 35 a month with AAA. I am 22 with no more tickets on my record. Street racing charge is finally dropped.

I called my insurance company (State Farm) today and asked what it would cost if I purchased one today. First, there is NO vin number nor any engine number that they can use ( required information) to submit to the underwriters for a cost factor.

Second, they suggested that I find a car that would match performance, Ya right... So I asked for a quote on a Dodge Viper.

Driving record. Iam 56 years old and have no tickets. No accidents and never had a car stolen. My credit is good and I own a house. They told me that my rates would go up by 137.00 a year for the same full coverage with a 200.00 deductable that I have now and that isn't bad at all.

Of course this is based on a Viper. No insurance company can issue a quote on a car that hasn't been built yet, just ask yours like I did. Besides, who cares what the insurance costs, just make the car and I will worry what the costs are. This car is a "once in a lifetime dream car". Carl
