I don't want to break the downer string but.... I think things will get better, and in the not too distant future... Was it that long ago that gas was $4.50 a gallon (the day I got my srt 7/16/08 $4.56 a gallon), and no one thought we'd see $1.45 ever again?
So my vote is that Challenger will survive and find modest improvements for the 2010 year.
I think the team of people who brought us the Challenger deserves credit and future jobs, if given the chance they will improve on an already great car.
The only thing we are really missing during these troubled times is hope, and just the change at the top should offer everyone a glimmer of hope, I think I see it.
