Kowalski test drove one recently too.... :P

Here's my photos of the first & fourth Challenger I've seen in the flesh.

(or as Balthy would say: "in the steel")

This one was on the back of a car carrier being pulled by a Peterbilt 379.

About 15min. & 5 miles before I saw the MB 500SEC for the 1st time.

Looks great..I only saw the orange one at the Denver auto show back March. I have yet to see one on the road or in a lot. I want a white one w/ Colorado plates. I love the styling...retro yet modern..stands out in a world of FWD generics.

When I first saw pics I liked them, but now that I've seen them in person I'm starting to REALLY like them.

My favorite color so far for the new Challengers is black too!

For you GM/Pontiac/Zeta fans here's a G8, registered & apparently daily driven. :)

that car is bad-ass!

Why THANKYOU!

I love the Mercedes HARDTOP, the Challenger would be quite

cool if only it was a hardtop too instead of a mere 2dr sedan.

Well, it is a big, heavy car...the fatness is part of it's Americanness.....this is the land of the Big Mac, Lard Lad, supersize everything, childhood obesity, and 6000lb SUVs..so our sports coupes should be over 4000lbs. :)

It's a Muscle car, not a Pony car. The original one was even closer to a Pony car (but not quite) than this one is.

Yeah, it's a performance car... I tend to avoid the old timey terms like 'muscle car' and 'pony car'...not really relevant today.

Yup, too many people trying to categorize today's cars with yesterday's terminology IMO too...

I like some of the AMG stuff, and the new aero styled sedans, but the old Mercedes stuff never did much for me at all.

Except that it does apply to this particular car.

Some of my favorite Benzes are the '60s-early '70s S-class coupes and convertibles, the SLs, the '50s Gullwing SLs, and the '70s 6.3 and 6.9 supersedans. I remember when I was in 2nd grade I had a teacher that had a '63 SE coupe (similar to the pic below). In Podunk, Ohio in the late '70s this car really stood out...I feel in love with the design. My family doctor had a '79 450SEL 6.9, I remember that making an impression on me also.

The 6.9s made an impression on me when they came out, but for performance, not looks!

Gullwings were nice cars, but styling wise I like alot of other manufacturers than Mercedes, they were sort of like a Volvo to me over the years, it didn't matter how nice the car was or how good the engineering was, they were too bland for my taste.

1. I know, it's called sarcasm

2. This car cost $57,000+ in 1984, it's a GERMAN spec.

gray market import and it's both V8 powered & RWD

noty to mention a pillarless hardtop...

BLAND? what do YOU drive again? :huh:

I've actually been thinking the 6.9 V8

conversion would be a fun way to

keep the car 100% MB while making

a sick sleeper/custom.

But if i ever replace the 5.0 SOHV in

the MB it will most likely be an iron

block 350 Chevy & mated to a 4-spd

manual for the ultimate bizzaro

world muscle car.
