2009 Dodge Challenger R/T: Is it in you?

March 23, 2009

The 2009 Dodge Challenger R/T is one mean mother -- the baddest prisoner in D-block.

It's easy to imagine it being driven by Lee Marvin or Samuel L. Jackson.
Or perhaps Charlie Bronson.

So you're considering getting one? In today's economy, it's best to be prepared before spending your hard-earned money.

In light of that, for my marketing class I've readied a Challenger screening pop quiz.
Let's see if the Challenger "is in you":

(continues after jump)

a. Enrique Iglesias
b. John Mayer
c. Maroon 5

How'd you do?

It's OK, you can rest assured: there are no correct answers -- or for that matter, wrong ones.

Because I just don't know who will purchase the 2009 Challenger R/T.

But I sure as hell know who won't.
