I work on the second floor of my building, and I park at the very end of the parking lot so that no one parks beside me.

If I go to our break room, you can see the ol' challenger sitting at a distance! In a nice aggressive stance, every time I go get a glass of water or fix lunch I peer out the window and think, "damn thats a sharp car" and then I just kind of stare at it! lol

I wondered if I was the only one that looks back at there car when walking away, or takes a second look and thinks man I love my challenger!!

I sure hope I'm not!! :bigthumb:

I do the same as well. I work at a bank and all of our associate park on the side of the building. I park directly in front so i can see my chally through the window. Customers always walk in asking "Who's Challenger is That!" I proudly smile and say mine! :)

Funny part is some of my associate try to say its theirs lol

I always do that, guess that means I made the right choice buying it.

I work with my dad and he told me yesterday he is going to buy a GT500 (he always wanted one and said since I am pissing all my money away, he might as well do it too). I told him go ahead, it will end up being mine anyway (one of the few perks of being an only child).

Should make for an interesting looking parking area. I think I will get a tape of somebody at a NASCAR race saying "gentlemen start your engines" for when we leave the office. Seems like a fitting send off.

Are you kidding me...I got to see my one my co-workers walk into another car because he was so fixated with mine.

All the time, I look back and tell my wife thats one awesome looking car. This will sound even worse, at night I go into the garage to take one more look at it before I go to bed. When I leave for work in the morning I look in again and tell her Bye. Now am I the only one who does this? Do I need counseling?

I've got a window where I sit at work so I can see a section of the parking lot from my desk. I always park my Challenger in that section, not because I'm worried something will happen to it but just because I just love looking at it! My productivity's dropped 20% but I smile more at work. :)

I like driving by buildings with reflective windows and staring at it as I slowly drive by.

If I am not driving my Hemi-orange SRT, I still pull the outdoor cover back just to look at it. I think that we all have "Challenger fever." There is no known cure. Two of the symptoms are an irresistible urge to stare at your car and a stupid grin while driving it. :bigthumb:

Wow! I really like my Challenger but you guys take it to another level! I've found there is a very small percentage of people that even know what they're looking at. The ones that do, usually have something good to say, or give a thumbs up.

I've found when I go out to breakfast or lunch, I park where I can see the car, but it's from a protective perspective. If someone hits that car with their own car door getting out or getting in, there's going to hear about it. Regardless of what I paid for it, the MSRP was $39K. That's too much invested to have some no-load bang it up because they're not paying attention.

GUILTY. Yes I do the "drive-by-gawking". I park within eye sight of her at work. But as of late we have a couple of girl that are doing over time for awhile to get some work out and they park in MY spot. It's not reserved so I can't say anything.
But darn these are gorgeous cars. One of the girls on another floor above me always gets so happy to see her outside too.

FWIT: The drive by gawkings were "funner" with Raised White Letter Tires!

Definately not the only one. I park on the fourth floor of our parking structure as far away from the enterance as possible (and the FBI cars). I definately look back a number of times before I get to the stairwell. I'd much prefer to be driving her than working.

It's parked at such a point I can see it from the third floor offices so I can go into any of the conference rooms and "keep an eye" on her when I need a break.

Ditto on the reflective windows!

Everytime I look at it I touch myself. It's like car porn. Maybe 'Moporn' is a better word.

im guilty too. I get to work 40 minutes early just to get the 'big" spot (wider than the rest) on the end. The I hope my wife gets to work early so she can park next to me and protect it.

I also look back it thinking DAMN! Nice Looking Car!!.

I also do take it to work on Wednesdays cause thats when the lawnservice people come (the douchebag blowing leaves dented my car with the leaf blower 1 month after I got it)

we dont have mirrored windows around here (the boonies) but if we did, id be looking!!

Sometimes I walk backwards when I get to my destination, just so I can keep looking at it!
