2009 Dodge Challenger R/T

I've mentioned in a previous post that the shifter in our Challenger is a little on the spongy side and I still feel that way. But after driving it again last night, I couldn't help but notice how comfortable the shifter itself feels.

There have been a thousand different shift handle designs over the years, everything from chrome balls to T-handles to the ol' pistol grip emulated here, all with their own quirks. But as derivative as this shifter is of the original, it's about natural feeling as a handle gets. Between its shape and the canted position, it's just about perfect. Makes getting the same car with an automatic all that more of a travesty.
