#325 of 526 Come on with the Challenger.....

I just want to say, that I am sooo happy, that Dodge is coming back with the Challenger. That is one beautiful car. I have always loved Barracudas & Challengers.....My first car, when I was 16, was a 1965 Plymouth Barracuda. I wish I still had that. My brother knew that was my favorite car was a Cuda, he meant well, with the 1965, but I wanted a 1970. but, I was happy with that..My payments were only $28/month. My user name everywhere on the internet, is SuzyQuda. I know I'll never own an old cuda or Challenger, but if I really, really save, I may be able to buy a 2008 Dodge Challenger. I just wanted to voice my opinion....I gotta get me one of those.....

Finaly 2 2 door car Excelent desition. THe Charger is a great family car,but it's a shame that was not 2 door like the original.
The Ideal Sport Car is: 2 Doors, Great Engine, Manual 6 gear transmission, Low profile, Mag Wheels, sport seats. All other extras make's the car much more expensive. I would like a stripped version. A low cost and self-customizable version.
When is the ETA for this car. I will be waiting for.

Doodge's first Challenger got squashed like a grape by better looking and better built competition. This time around, they're getting to the party 3 years late at best. Everybody that wants a muscle car and can afford to buy a muscle car and has any sense already has a Mustang. The Charger is nothing more than a stopgap to compete with the Mustang, however patheticly, until the Challenger can be built. By the time DC alters their showcar for a production run, nobody will even care. I wouldn't bother dreaming about a camaro either. It'll be 2009 at best, if GM decides they're definately going to do it. I love pulling up next to people in chargers that paid way more than me for a car way uglier than mine, then showing them a pair of chrome 3" pipes. Give it up and buy a Mustang already...

I'd like to read this definition of 'sports car' you are refering to. I know that there've been a few threads on the 'Coupes and Convertibles' forum where folks have tried to hash out just WHAT a 'sports car' is. Apparently, no consensus was ever reached.
BTW - what the heck does a really fast 1/4 mile have to do with being a 'sports car'?

#333 of 526 Glad to see the Challenger re-emerge on the car scene...

I am thrilled to once again see the Challenger re-enter the automobile market once again. I was an original owner of a 1972 Dodge Challenger Rally which had a modest 340 Magnum
V8, with 240 HP. It was nothing compared to it's more
powerful 1970 and 1971 Challenger R/T brothers, which had the larger 383, 440 Magnum and 426 Hemi engines, but the styling was great just the same.
My 1972 Challenger cost me $4,250.00 brand new, fully
loaded, with a T-shift , 3-speed Tourqeflite automatic transmission with air conditioning, bucket seats, and an
AM Mopar radio.
Still regret letting it go. It was a beauty.
I wonder what the 2009 models will sell for?

mashkm: I forgot where I seen or read this BUT, it is supposed to be out for the '08 season, with the 425 HP engine in it! It was not mentioned what options, or configurations changes would be made, but the wheels and tires did not fit well, and the test car could not be fully tested as the tires hit the fender wells, even on a slight bump, so we know some changes will be made! But I too am happy, even though I am not a MOPAR lover! I am quite happy to see the "Muscle Car Wars" BACK AGAIN!!!!! There is a God!
