Looking at the LA auto show website. Makes no mention if the Dodge Challenger is going to be there or not. So I'm guessing that it's only going to be shown at the NAIAS? If thats true then.... BASTARDS I HATE YOU ALL! J/K but seriously that sucks for us Cali drivers.

Yep, I just received my DCX e-mail invitation and all they mention is the Chrysler 'Firepower' concept. :rolleyes:

Sad... :(
I'm looking forward to seeing the Firepower, but the Challenger was the real reason for my willingness to put up with all the little rugrats running rampant at the LA Show again....:eek: :rolleyes:

yeah the fire power is nice. something to compete against the base corvette. but it is no challenger. im going to bug every dodge employee there asking about the challenger. that way they'll report back to the big guys. you should all do the same!

Yep, do let those DCX reps know that there are a lot of us here who are extremely excited, anxious, and willing to buy the new Dodge 'Challenger' as soon as they begin rolling off the assembly line. :D

With regard to the 'Firepower', Car & Driver Television re-aired an earlier broadcast a couple of weeks ago which featured the Chrysler 'Firepower'...stating that DCX has discussed possibly setting the MSRP around $65,000. :cool:

Firepower was at last years Detroit Auto Show. Got some nice pics of it. If its there again I will take some HDTV quality video of it along with the Challenger (of course) :) :)
Hey, that sounds great, and also take as many as you can and post your review/'first-hand' impressions of the 'Challenger'. :cool:

Why pull up a thread two years old? read what they are saying the Challenger was still a dream and not a reality!

Who really cares about LOOKING at a Challenger at a car show when you can go look and DRIVE one at your local dealer?

They did the same in Anaheim a month ago.. all that matters is the car is there for the looky-loos. At this point, there's no sense in spending millions to setup elaborate shows around the country and mass marketing when only a select few are buying.

If they are indeed floating the Firepower again, it was at the LA show two years ago. It is a fine looking vehicle, and yes I think another poster was correct that it was based on the Crossfire chassis (which they no longer build so how can they leverage?) and it sported a 5.7. That said, it's a retread.

p.s. - I have a friend that stopped at the LA show and said they did have a couple Challengers there, one with an aftermarket hairdryer. 8^)
