Good day to all. Yes, i did it! Bought a black on black 08 SRT8... with next to nothing miles and showroom pristine (really not yet even broke in) I verified it all... via two Chrysler dealers. I had muscle back in the 60s and 70s... I like the retro style.

Couples things I'm going to change... factory exhaust to one a bit more quiet but still with enough rumble at load to know that 6.1 is there. And two... sound deaden the road noise from the fender cavities.... terrible for a $41k car new. Three, do something to smooth the buckboard suspension and yet still handle. I also have an 210K mile 02 Mercedes E55 AMG 349hp winter beater that actually beats the Challenger's numbers just a hair and they figured it out. Yes i could have bought a newer Challenger but the 4-6-8 cylinder cutout system just seems like a valve train issue waiting to happen... I decided to stick with old school... me being a definite member of that age bracket.

Well, looking forward to various discussion with you all.

Dave
