Default Dodge Charger

Dodge Chargers w/Hemi, 2 comments I just have to make:

1.So I’m sittin’ at a stop light in my 87 CRX thinkin’ I’m pretty cool, gettin’ 37 mpg (city). I look over in the right lane and here comes this dude in a black Charger, makes a right turn and does the most bodacious power slide I’ve seen in a long, long time. On dry pavement, smoke rollin’ out of the tires, engine singin’, as easily as he would if the road was snow packed. Then he just lets off the gas and politely motors on his way. (Scared my Honda so bad it farted & died). It was so freakin’ cool. I was impressed, and I'm not even a huge Mopar fan! Made me miss my ’67 Camaro and wish my Bonneville was rear wheel drive. Not that my Bonne could do that even if it had rear wheel drive, but there’* no chance of it with front wheel drive. Not that I’d do something like that…
Maybe I want a Mustang GT500 – 450 hp, 450 lbft torque. *drool*

2. Utah Highway Patrol is replacing the Crown Vics with Hemi Chargers. I'm starting to see them everywhere. Now I want to be a cop.

They are pretty decent for a large car. Local buddy has a Daytona in Gomango. He draws ALOT of attention.

Yeah, I can't wait to see what the Camaro offers. Maybe another Z/28 option? I'm jonesin' about the Challenger too. The concept is very retro, like the old 70'* 'Cuda. I'm liking the new Mustangs too, 'specially the GT500. Oooh, I'm gettin' all giddy like I did right after my first kiss. (Last week).

SRT8 Challenger...oh yeah.
2009 Z/28 Aluminum 6.2L...oh baby! *runs off to change pants*

You could always get arrested and get a free ride in one.

Now you know why it costs $147 for a 1/2" thick used text book.
