2013 Dodge Challenger SRT8 2dr Coupe (6.4L 8cyl 6M)
When this vehicle was first introduced in 08 and i saw one on the road it quickly brought me back to sitting in the classroom in my HS in CT mid 70's watching muscle cars of that era occasionally zipping by with a roar and garnering the attention of a select few of the boys in the classroom. Fast forward to today and the fascination of the cars are now captivating a new generation while extending the opportunities of yesteryear to those of us who now have the means in participating in the ownership of one of these great machines. The Chevelle SS was always my favorite with the 69-70 Challenger a close second. No modern era Chevelle's, so the SRT 8 is it,
AND BOY I COULD NOT BE HAPPIER!
Power, ride quality, superb road presence, tight build quality and excellent drive-ability for the price, puts this machine in a class all by itself. Any comparison to a Mustang or Camaro is nolstalgic and
is like comparing a long distance runner to a sprinter. Find any Grand Touring coupe within $20,000 which offers the same road feel, appeal, power and lineage and build quality then dare to compare. Hopefully the lighter Cuda will relieve the Challenger of being lumped into a group it does not belong and allow it to bask in it's rightful place as a great American GT which offers great value and a timeless design which will continue to captivate for generations to come. GREAT CAR!
