Real-World Pics of the new Challenger

24 posts in this topic

Ted and I decided to go for coffee when we were cruising in Mississauga when we saw a truck full of Challengers parked at a restaurant parking lot. Here are a few crude shot of what we saw.

Hey look;

A company that has a clue.

Riiight. Meantime GM's focus groups are still looking

at home depot paint swatches to determine the

exact color of the Camaro's instrument cluster and

radio trim surround.

Hurry the F*** up GM.

Yes, because giving us a three-decade old design in an overweight, overpriced package (and an interior that could be shoved into any other Chrysler product) is EXACTLY what consumers want.

I was over the Challenger in 1970.

The pictures came out bad, but this WAS a sight to behold.

All shiny SRT's in black and orange, fresh from the factory. :thumbsup:

Lessee: Here's a vehicle who's original version has sold repeatedly in the multi-6-figure range and whose '08 version is already completely sold out. Not sure how else one could define 'a vehicle consumers want'...

Very cool to see these pics.

A bright spot in dark times.

Cars like that embody freedom - something we should all celebrate.

Same for the Camaro and the Mustang.

May there always be at least a few of the like on the market.

Yes...I'd like to have one of each. Even in a world of generic FWD daily drivers, and concern over gas prices, there is still a place for distinctly American cars...

Truly a sight for sore eyes these days, between gas prices, CAFE and all this other bull&#036;h&#33; going on with our economy....its nice to see a legend reborn and ready to prowl the streets. Hopefully it wont be a short stay.

Yeah, a company that was unloaded at a huge loss by Daimler, run by a manger who almost killed Home Depot, and to cut gas hogging truck models. :pokeowned: God knows if they will see the 2010's. Sure they have a "clue"?

Some have to get out more and see the real world and that it is not 1969 anymore!

Well when you consider how badly Daimler f@#ked the company up, of course it had to be sold at a loss. And of course, don't forget they aren't the only company with gas hogging trucks, but Toyota wants you to believe they are 110% green baby.

Daimler did do Chrysler wrong.

They were fine and in the 1990's the MOST profitable automaker in existence.

Take that Porsche!

Damn Bob Eaton and Schrempp for destroying a proud American enterprise.

Next time you have a thought, please, just let it go.

Exactly...in 1970 I would much rather have bought a sweet Mach 1 or Boss 302 or a nice z-28 rather than a Challenger.

Thirty eight years later, I'd still rather have the Mustang or Camaro.

...but what we need now is a dinstinctly American MODERN car, not the rebirth of a 40 year old Idea. I'm not saying it isn't cool... but...

I wish one of them were mine :wub:

Don't worry, when the new Camaro comes out you will be assimilated to the "dark side" just fine...

Seriously, it is a hot car and even though I am not a big fan of Chrysler I find myself wanting one a little bit...

The new Challenger is not a 3 decade old design, it just has similar styling and rear drive and a V8 engine. The V8 engine is a modern Hemi design, the chassis is a modern rear drive setup from the 300C and the retro styling works far better than any bland BMW or Lexus appliance that is being shoved down our throats today.

I want an SRT8 in white. I hope they are still around in '10. I'd love to have one for my 40th birthday as a weekend toy. I've lusted after Challengers since seeing 'Vanishing Point' as a kid around 1980.

Though I'd probably be happier w/ a CTS for a daily driver.
