Will be receiving a 2011 IE SRT #391
In 1979 I bought my first challenger a Forrest Green 340 car @ the ripe
old age of 15 ( yes , test drove & bought it w/out a license &/or parents knowledge/permission :notallthere:
Dad had a slant 6 dart & when I saw my first challenger in like 1976 it was like an epiphany .
While in College in another state Dad dumped the car for $100 since it had a blown rod & he wanted the garage space.
I scored a 2nd E-Body in 1991 a cherry 1971 340 Cuda which I loved toolin around in & a year later when my 1st son was born I remember his car seat
shaking with the idle rumble of the sweet 340's cam.
Soon after the wife got her space shuttle Pontiac Transport & the Cuda was gone
By 2003 funds were better so I grabbed a 71 challenger ragtop shaker hood, 440-6 with air & 4spd , nice creation , show winner lemon twist or banana yellow whichever dodge was , white top white interior
In 2006 that turned into a 2005 Copperhead Viper
2008 was economic collapse LOL
2011 is Challenger #3 & hopefully a keeper for the long haul

With that , hello & glad to be here :)

Welcome. Glad you joined us. We now have 18,693 members and growing daily! You'll find that this is the best Challenger forum on the web.

One word of caution, however. It may prove to be very expensive for you...because of all the great ideas you will get to mod your "3rd" Challenger.

Thanks for the warm greetings!
I didn't buy the car per say off ebay but the seller
negotiated & ended the auction
Dodge : Challenger - eBay (item 150558695929 end time Feb-05-11 14:00:28 PST)
Had a decent trade that was paid but I usually like to
OWN the car free & clear & hopefully within 6 months I can
get this thing completely paid off.

Once it's paid I'd consider some mods like chopping the roof off LOL

This is my 2nd hemi. Had a 1954 Chrysler NY 4 door seden 331 HEMI !
(That's how desperate I was to own a hemi )
$900 in 1982 & during spring break I'd have 8 friends packed in there to
cruise the Ft Laud strip

Some past non mopar muscle
75 hurst olds
69 Hurst Olds convertible tribute show car
73 454 4 spd vette
81 collector vette
05 convertible stang (modded GT with Auto & Saleen Blower)
06 Z06

Would like -
71 hemi cuda convertible sublime , white interior
white top , white billboards , Auto , Rally Dash , Slap Stick
even a nice tribute would do
or have Ralphe Gillies (sp)
offer like a 2013 HemiCuda Vert w/all alumininum 426
same color as above so I have a his & hers
