Default new member saying Hi

Hi there

I'm an oldish geezer that suffers from heavy foot syndrome, just bought an 09 R/T.
So far I'm loving it, cant help getting in and grinning ear to ear like I'm 17 again.
Had a Magnum but the grin factor just was not there for me.

Did the magnum have the hemi? even if it did i guess it only had about 340 hp and the torque couldnt match the 09 r/t : ) Im still getting used the the 410 ft ibs with the manual. It just never ever gets old when you step on that throttle.

LOL Nope no Hemi on the Magnum, and it just never did make me smile when I floored it, unlike the R/T does.

Mines the Auto and electronic stick shift , it shuffles along pretty well.

Its funny how sitting behind the wheel of the new Challenger will make you feel years younger...

Something about driving my Challenger makes me want to turn my ball cap around.
