Looks good, good luck with it.

I will say that some of the "new retros" are very well done, the current Challenger is one example.

SRT8 with 6sp wouldve been better but Im sure its still fun to drive.

Challenger has been by far the nicest looking of the retros imo.

Cause its only pushing 374 to the crank and wieghs the better part of 4000lbs. With wide tires it wouldnt be able to spin them.



DISCLOSURE: That was a joke. I like the car. Just a little ribbing.

Ditch the chrome for black. While yer at it...ditch the Dodge for a Bowtie.

Actually a cool car. I saw one similar at SEMA last year & they do look "muscluar."

I guy I work with at the Post Office picked up a Challenger SRT8 not too long ago.

His has the manual and the 392 Hemi in it, wide tires too. It's pretty slick.

I'll try n get some pics of it before he puts it away for the winter.

You are aware that truck came with about 20% less horsepower from the factory than that little 5.7L?

I never put alot of stock horse power or torque ratings, unless they are a true side by side with matching rpm #'s througout the rpm range.

But I'd bet the torque of the 8.0, no matter the #'s, is enough to drag a sports car down the road.

Grumpster, Jealousy and hate sum up what I feel right now about this. It is almost exactly the one I built online, of course I couldn't afford right now if I wanted too, but still fun to dream.

Congratulations on that beauty man. I love me some Mopar and this is one of the nicest new style Challengers I;ve seen!

Here in America, manuals don't sell as well because too hard to drive and launch. It's a shame to me the slow death of manuals.

Mopar or no car buddy! I am a huge older Mopar fan, not so excited how quickly these Challengers got heavy, but all is well looks good and still a fun toy. Enjoy it, just watch out for us 4-bangers in commuter cars, some of us are in sleeper mode
