No Barbara Streisand isn't going to appear here. But I have a story to tell you guys that may bring a tear to your eyes.

When I was 16 years old in 1976, I purchased my first Challenger. It was...

Finally!

I figured I'd post here since I've done little to no posting since joining for awhile now. Lots of lurking though. I have finally done the inevitable and got my Challenger. It's an R/T 27F w/Track...

RE: Start Ordering R/T Classics.

Does the ill-fated '86 space shuttle count? The '80's Mitsu was a Challenger by name only. Does it's sisters name, the Plymouth Sapporo translate to english as 'Cuda? '70-'74 were all born of the...

RE: Start Ordering R/T Classics.

There was no generation CHALLENGER after the '70-'74 until the '08 CHALLENGER! These are THE second generation of CHALLENGERS. Those monstrosities from the '80's WERE NOT CHALLENGERS! They were...

RE: US Auto Sales Bleak

What's really amazing is something my wife and I noticed last summer while touring Michigan. The amount of foreign manufacturer cars on the road. Yeah I know that alot of these cars are made in the...

RE: And they wonder why?

I'm planning on buying in April. I figure that by then those dealers still in business will be willing to deal. It's a buyers market right now and don't let them make you think otherwise.

RE: 1st 24 hrs with my new R/T - full writeup

I'm not sure what the big deal is here? If you have rear seat passengers they get in on the passenger side of the car. Let's face it, it isn't exactly your typical family car anyway. I think this is...

RE: What brand and type of oil to use

I'd say that you would be safe with any namebrand synthetic. I've always been partial to Castrol products but don't think there is really that much difference between synthetics. I run whatever...

RE: Movie - Vanishing Point

I think it was a 69 Camaro (gills on the quarters), but anyway they didn't waste a Challenger in the process. There were 3 Challengers used in the movie, but it is speculative as to what engines...

RE: Former Challenger owner driving impressions?

Yeah, I know about the touchy steering in the old Challengers at high speed. The front end started to lift and wander at about 110. For the rest of you guys, watch the movie Vanishing Point...

RE: Former Challenger owner driving impressions?

:DThat funny! I don't feel midlife but I do feel the need to have something with some raw power back under the seat of my pants and at my back. I've been stuck in the economy car mode for 20 years...

RE: Former Challenger owner driving impressions?

How long are you guys who ordered your Challengers having to wait (build time) to take delivery? I want it built to order because I know exactly what I want. Brilliant Black Crystal, Dark Slate...

Former Challenger owner driving impressions?

OK Let's get this straight. I owned a '73 340 Challenger with a 727 auto at 17 years of age and kept that car for the next 17 years of my and our lives after marrying Mrs. Deranged at 18 years old....

RE: Dealer in Illinois with 7 supposedly at sticker!

I don't know how many "08s" were "officially" made but Autoweek this week reports that 750 of 6400 '08s produced have not been sold. Besides the numbered dash plaque what really makes them different...

RE: 2009 SE late availability ??

Yeah, I pointed this out to him yesterday and told him that he probably wouldn't see them for a month, maybe more. I also let him know that the (pressure) approach he is taking to make the sale is...

RE: 2009 SE late availability ??

I don't know what to believe about what will be available when. I talked to a dealer last week who said he would get 10 R/T's this week. He e-mails me today and says he has 6 in route and 4 of them...

RE: WHO HAS A 2009 CHALLENGER ANY MODEL ON ORDER??

Great fun! I now have 2 dealers bidding against each other. I'm at $755 under sticker and the competition has just begun. Now if I can get a couple more involved this could get very interesting.:D

RE: WHO HAS A 2009 CHALLENGER ANY MODEL ON ORDER??

Well the Challenger as I want it, R/T with just the track pack comes to $30,990 sticker. Best quote so far is $30,335. $655 under sticker is a start, and this is from a dealer I bought a new Shadow...

RE: Best deal-who cares?-drive 'em!

At 17 years of age my first Challenger wasn't the best-'73 340 auto, but I could take about any street driven big block out there because of my familiarity with the car after a few years. So many...

RE: Best deal-who cares?-drive 'em!

Not criticizing, I'm just saying for me the R\T seems to be the right choice. With the trackpack as the only option it should be around $31,000. Oh, and I'm sure I'll have great fun even with a lowly...

Best deal-who cares?-drive 'em!

O.K. I know there is quite a debate going on here about who is getting the best deal. '08 SRT8 or '09 R\T or '09 SRT8? What I have not seen much mention of here is the (limited) lifetime powertrain...
