#343 of 526 2008 Dodge Challenger?
Sep 18, 2006 (2:22 am)
Would it be possible for someone to tell me IF this Forum is Closed or not? I haven't heard a word about this vehicle in sometime now, and it's just too HOT an item not to be discussed!!! Although not a MOPAR Fan, I am a Fan of ALL MUSCLE CARS, especially the ones that were out during the "Muscle Car Wars" of the mid '60's, and into the early '70's!!! I grew up with these animals, and have an undying appreciation for them! Any information on this Forum would be greatly appreciated! I certainly would enjoy more discussion on this particular vehicle! It made such a splash back then, and I am sure it will again with the massive 425 HP Hemi under it's Hood! Thanx!!!
PS: Any discussion on the Charger would have to be on Welding the Back Doors SHUT, and re-painting the vehicle, to look like a 2 door again! But that is only MHO!!!

hello C2456Ron. your post is evidence that this forum is not closed. i think the challenger will probably be awesome as long as it comes with a standard shift. i'm mostly ignoring this forum until the Challenger is actually available - in the meantime i'll be too busy working and leisurely dusting of mustangs and C5 Z06s with my 6-spd GTO.
speaking of mustangs, i love that new shelby/cobra ad where the USA dude brings it to Germany. that ad rocks.
btw, i think i heard "450hp" for the Challenger rather than 425hp. BRING IT!

THE CHALLENGER IS HEADED TO PRODUCTION. IT WILL BE A 2008 MODEL. IM HOPEING CHRYSLER WILL OFFER THE RETRO COLORS ON THE CHALLENGER LIKE THEY ARE THE CHARGER... TOP BANANA, GO MANGO... FOR THE 07 MODEL THEY WILL BE OFFERING SUBLIME AND PLUM CRAZY ON THE DAYTONAS. SO IF CHRYSLER DOES IT RIGHT THEY WILL OFFER THE RETRO COLORS FOR THE CHALLENGER. I WOULD LOVE TO HAVE A PANTHER PINK ONE.

Thanks for joining in, and welcome!
But... typing in ALL CAPS makes it seem like you're shouting at us. We'd love to hear more from you, in sentence case

"...dusting of mustangs and C5 Z06s with my 6-spd GTO..."
Uh-huh, yeah, sure, ok. Mustangs, ok, but Z06s??!!
Again, uh-huh, yeah, sure, ok.

For someone such as myself who wasn't around for the 60's musclecar era, the 08' Challenger is a godsend. A way for me to experience what I missed 40 years ago. And a Hemi with a stick would be spectacular.

I too was not lucky enough to be around for the muscle car era. With the re-engineered Mustang that came out...the approved concept of the challenger coming out and a few ideas thrown out for the camaro...history is bound to repeat itself...I am NOT a mopar fan but they most definitely seem to have the best design for the aerodinamically re-engineered pony cars...Not to mention the fact it has a 6 speed manual (pistol grip at that) hemi! that tops out at 176 mph! And the guages that tell you how fast your 1/4 mile time is! your 0-60 time! I see that feature not making it into the market though great idea but not a seller among people who don't really race. The only downfall to me are the tires...the tires are made specifically by goodyear...not a goodyear fan simply because they are over priced and over used by too many industries same with the michellin and all the name brand tires. Other than that I am impressed with chryler's decision on bringing back the Challenger after 35 long years this is a long over due welcome!

I first saw an article about the Challenger in a magazine at work, and I knew at that very second what my next new car was going to be, but it was not green-lighted at that time, it took about 2 weeks for me to finally see it was good for production. Instant love was all I felt looking at the concept. I just hope they keep it at a reasonable price, it would be disheartening to see it sell for $35,000, hopefully it will be in the range of $22-$25,000 not everybody has a high 5 figure income, American car makers wonder why they are losing ground to the imports, but with the typical decent American car sitting at $31,000, but you can buy a Kia or Hyundai for under $21,000 and get a 10 year warantee, so I think a huge selling point will be to keep it as low-cost as possible, but regardless, I will be first in line with my kidney in hand....

Welcome to the Forums! Right or left kidney? You should definitely keep one for yourself... you know, just in case
