As I alway say, Lucky bastard.

Love those Magnums. I would want a Charger first but they don't offer AWD and I think a AWD Magnum with the HEMI in the snow would be so cool and put on some bald tires and do it in the fall, hehehehheeh Can anyone say awesome donuts
?

SCORE!!! Nice buy, I've loved the magnum since day one. Performance wise how does it stack up with the SSEi? Would the magnum smoke it? Isnt the HEMI-Magnum supposed to trap ~100mph in the quarter bone stock?

Joe.

The AWD only comes with the 3.5L as far as I know.

Only the Magnum SXT'* and R/T'* with the 3.5L V6 and the 5.7L HEMI can get AWD. It is not offered on the Magnum SE with 2.7L V6. And in comparison to my 2000 SSEi, I would get my A$$ handed to me by one.......already have from someone at work. I work at a dealership and we had to race one day to see......
