I'm always interested in how many different ways our Challengers were configured......Whether bought off the lot, or special ordered. I'll go first.....Special order
Sounds like you got a great deal. We need pictures to go with the window stickers.and I got mine for $7100 off the sticker. Not bad! And I bought mine off the lot, over the phone, had it shipped from LA to Portland. Bought it sight unseen. Only 1 option I didn't get that I wanted, and that was Anti-Spin. Oh well! Glen E. Thomas Dodge really treated me well, too.

Hi Fastfreight ... Attached is my window sticker for the twin.
Yes, but what really matters is the price out the door. I wonder if these increased prices just give the dealer more bargaining room and let the buyer feel good when they negotiate down from there.Wow, prices have really climbed in just 2 years......Examples:
Anti Spin rear axle Was $100, now $275
Sunroof Was $695, now $995
20" Chrome clads Were $995, now $1295
Wow Shawn, they are closer to twins than I thought.....except.......
1. Every car I ever had with a sunroof broke. The last one, a '98 Neon R/T had it's sunroof replaced twice by Chrysler under warranty
2. I thought the car would be a little quicker with smaller wheels and tires.......and it is
Let's see some more stickers!
I'm pretty sure the 40 years newer design has been improved upon. To make you feel better, the sunroof in our '07 Dodge minivan still works perfect!Yeah, I was (am) worried about the sunroof. My family had an old 1970-something Plymouth Fury with a sunroof, and it leaked terribly. I drove it in college, and when I accelerated or braked after a rainy day, it would just come down on me.
I bought this car off the lot, it wasn't special ordered, and there were only two things I would have changed 1) the sunroof and 2) the automatic transmission.
However, perhaps it is karma at work, as I needed my wife to agree that we could afford a new car and in her view, a sunroof equates to luxury. While she can drive a stick just fine, she prefers an automatic. She does drive it occasionally, so having those two items in helped convince my wife.
Plus, this was past the time window for ordering HO Challengers, so I could not have ordered one in that color, and I really do love the color. I would have had to wait a year to get one special ordered and perhaps missed the window of opportunity.
Overall, I'm very happy with the car and do not regret it. I hope to retire in 5 more years and want to spend some time with my wife touring our great country, and she'll enjoy the sunroof then, and perhaps I'll enjoy the automatic then as well.
