I hate to see any car come to its end this way. But we should also realize that the car "can" break loose and therefore many of us could end the 50K experience this way on some cold wet road. I for one do not intend to drive it like a maniac around turns, maybe straight aways, but turns can always be tricky.

I suspect Chrysler will not rebuild this car. It would make no sense. What they will probabaly do is send it to their crash lab for impact diagnosis. Who knows, maybe even from this terrible event, something good may still come of it?

As for anypone hoping to get a used White 2008, sorry, that ticket has been canceled.

I do not know how fast or at what angle this car hit, but it does not look "all" that bad. I wonder how the frame held up? Are there any Forensic scientists out here? How about body shop guys? What are your thoughts on the damage? They said it was able to move on its own power, but we did not get to see the driver side fender, it may have taken the most force up under the corner ("landing" on a tire rack. I wonder if it was "flying").

All in all we could have predicted one of the first cars would meet this fate. Has anyone seen any of the mules wasted? My cousin tells me they trashed three when trying to get the 6 speed to work in the car. I am glad they changed the rear suspension and added the trac-pak, or else we would never have seen a manual in one of these beasties.

It was originally a black SRT. It was repainted for the race.

So now we have the first crash of a Challenger (other than tests) and the first speeding ticket Edmunds testers- "in excess of 100" of a CA freeway).
