Hello Group , Well Im Rattler , 52 years old and the 2010 Hemi Orange SRT 8 is my first muscle car. I have always had 4wd trucks and suv 's before this purchase. I have been into radio and electronics , signal intell , etc. But I have always wanted a Challenger , Cuda' or Road Runner. My brother who is 62 had the rods in the family. GTO's , Chevelle's , 57 Chevy Bel Air and a 73 340 Cuda' . Of all of them , The Cuda' realy caught my eye and "ears". The car had the best sounding exhaust system that I ever heard. Especially at idle. It had the perfect "thrushy" type of rumble. I love my Challenger. It has no stripes/ decals yet. No sun roof and is a automatic. Got the T shifter and cold air intake. Im wanting to make this car into a classic R/T but with the 6.1's hp , Alcoa's and SRT 8 badging replaced with Classic R/T. For myself , I wish that they would have left off the SRT 8 and just called it a R/T with 6.1 option. I am going to add a black bumble bee tail stripe with the round R/T emblem on it's sides.Got it in the box from Rider Graphix .The Challenger and SRT badging in the front grill have been removed and replaced with classic R/T badging. I have the SMS full body kit on order but will only install the hood at first. I realy dont care that much for the other parts but the front is starting to grow on me . I will do the front later then the other parts later on. Im almost set on getting the SMS Super Charger . Im going to do some more research on this before I buy the super charger. It may void the warranty and I also purchased the best extended warranty that Dodge offers .After all of those options , I should have purchased a SMS 570 but none were available in Hemi Orange. I was waiting to purchase a 2011 Challenger SRT 8 but when I found out that Hemi Orange had been replaced by Toxic Orange for 2011, I decided on the 2010 model. Something tells me that they will offer the 2011 in Hemi Orange at a later date. But if it evolves , and I hope it does , My next Challenger will be the 426 Hemi equipped car that some are talking about that may show up in a couple of years. Wars keep upping the anny and something tells me that Dodge will be upping with a 426 Hemi powered Challenger one day. Thats about it for me , Will see you on the site. Rattler

Thanks for the welcome , A welcome is not available on my electronics & radio reflector sites . It's nice and realy makes one feel welcome. Please bare with me , I tend to write way to much and over explain when I should just get more to the point. I will write smaller more direct replies in future messages. Again , Thanks for the welcome , I realy appreciate it. Rattler
