2009 Dodge Challenger R/T: The Streets of San Francisco
April 22, 2010
I recently took the Challenger to San Fran for a business trip and just had to check out Lombard Street, one (if not THE) most famous crooked roads in the country. We're talking eight sharp, hairpin-style turns! Before that zig-zag section came up, I had to stop several times while ascending the steep street and was thankful for the Challenger's hill-holder feature. What I wasn't thankful for was the car's broad shouldered physique as I wound my way down through the hairpins of this carnival ride. But we emerged unscathed and I can now check that one off the road trip bucket list.
