Just as an FYI, the Charger could have been worked to look more old then what the currant team came up with. With C.A.D these guys did a pretty good job in my opinion. Please read and pass along to your buddies at headquarters.
Just make sure you don't screw up the 2009 Challenger. Use the Firepower as your platform and offer it for a reasonable 29,500 and up depending on options, of course with the HEMI for this price.

Never going to happen. NASCAR Banned the HEMI in its glory days which forced the pull out of factory supported teams in the late 60's(Eventually returning, only to pull out in the late 70's and not returning until 2001). They sure wouldn't allow a race version HEMI in a Cup car now. If they have 800hp motors now with non-Hemi heads, can you imagine what a Race preped Hemi from Evernham Motorsports could turn out?

I may test drive an RT today. I already have the financing set up(4.75 % 5 yr) I 'll see what they have to offer. When you price out the charger a $500. rebate comes up. Does anyone know if it does indeed exist and how it would work? Meaning do you get a check from Dodge or do they just reduce the price of the car? I only will take the car if they are willing to reduce the sticker price.And I don't mean by $ 500.
Thanks for any input !!
It seems that by checking the inventory around here in central Fl that there are plenty to chose from.

I wouldn't expect them to drop it by much with Charger's in short supply. Most dealers around here have either no Charger's or two at the most on their lots and they don't stay around very long. The Charger is just too new to expect deep discounts until supply overtakes the demand. The same thing happened when the PT cruiser was first released.

I'm getting ready to call the sales guy up to see if I can come over.I'd rather have a charger(had 69 charger once ) but have deal on the table for a Mustang Gt.It's about 4k cheaper.That's why I need the dealer to negotiate some.. Maybe $1200 -1500 off. That's why I asked about the rebate. Does that have any effect on what the dealer takes off?

They'll use the rebate to get the price down. Keep it in your back pocket, don't let them know you know until you're getting closer to a deal. You should be able to get 1,000 off of sticker and they can swing another $500 from the rebate.

Thanks for the quick response!! The guy luckily hasn't called me back yet.
If I can get off the $1500. I'd do the deal.

Salesmen just called me back. I told him that there is a 4k diff between the charger and the stang. He needs to close the gap or I go across the street and finanlize the deal on the GT. The charger does suit my needs better. The price doesn't!!

After hours of negotiating , I'm ( bank is) the proud owner of a silver RT.
The salesman had my head snappnig back on his portion of the test drive.
The car rides nicely and the power is there if you want to play. I was surprised how big the car is. I had a jeep and now this thing is a tight fit in my garage.
I got a desent deal considering how new the car is. Gainesville dodge is a well run operation.
The ride is a lot smoother than my 69 Charger was.. Then again ,I'm quite a bit older.
