No sunroof in the photo car. Somebody else thinks the stripes don't look good with the sunroof.

I know I'm on that list. I was happy to find out the one my dealer ordered did not have the sunroof.

That is the six speed going down the 1/4. He mentioned it was 1/2 a second faster than their 6.1 automatic counterpart. How much quicker do the automatic 6.1 go relative to the 6.1 6 spd's?

I am with you guys my 2010 dosen't have a sunroof either. I was afraid all the 392s were going to be fully loaded. Not a big roof fan myself especially with roof stripes.

The auto was video taped @12.44 in the 1/4 mile. There links to the video on here and you can find it on Youtube as well.

The sunroof doesn't look right with the hood stripes IMHO. Since I plan on owning mine for the long term I was also worried about it leaking 20 years down the road.

Sunroof also adds 40 lbs of unneeded weight on the highest point of the car.

The 6 speeds are tricky, I know for me it has taken practice to get my times down. 114MPH is a mid 12.

I can take or leave my sun roof. My wife, on the other hand, really likes it.

Therefore she likes the car a lot more, which is good for marital bliss...:pimp:

I wonder why they didnt do the spoiler in black instead of body color like on R/T's?

Think how that would look with the stripes.

Not too good, I think.
