    and in this corner...

    The Challenger....

    The 2009 Dodge Challenger that is!

    I soooo want one of these, so I decided to go to the website and build my dream Dodge Challenger...$45,000!

    Oh well, dare to dream.

    Is any one else stoked about this awesome new (old) car?

    Oh, and I'm sure (with a $1,700 gas guzzler tax) that this thing get horrible gas milage.
    May the force be with you.

    I saw one of these driving down the street in Hollywood a few months ago, unfortunately I was driving the opposite direction or I would have followed it. The concept car at the car shows looks nice but the rear end was a little weak, perhaps because of setting, but the one on the street looked a little better, very cool. The price is outrageous though, this thing is a modification of the friggin' Charger which is half that price.

    the re-introduction of most of the classic muscle cars has been great, with the notable exception of the GTO.

    I saw this for the first time this week. We were replacing the roof on the local Dodge dealership and they had one out on the lot and one inside the showroom. I just stared at it for the longest time, it's absolutely beautiful! I almost regretted the fact that I just got a new used-car a few weeks ago and there would be no way I could afford one of these.

    Amen to that. Only thing that car had going for it was the LS2 Corvette engine in the '05+ models.


    I like the new look of the Challenger, no doubt. But for the price, as JT mentioned, and the performance you get out of it, it is not worth it - at all! The car has a good engine (the 6.1 liter in the SRT-8) with some strong power (425 hp), but the damn thing weighs waaaay too much, at 4100+ lbs. This really hurts it performance.

    You can spend the same money and get a new base level C6 Corvette that will run circles around it. Same goes for a Mustang GT500.

    Or you could hold out and wait for the new Camaro that is going to hit next year, or the Z28 that is to hit the following year.

    But if it were me, I'd sink the extra coin into my current vehicle.

    Current re-introductions.

    The second generation Dodge Challenger (1978-1983) was a horrible horrible joke that should be blotted out of all memory, much like the SW Holiday Special...only worse.

    They look nice of what I've seen in pictures. I can't wait to see one up close. The new Camaro for that matter too.
    Something to give the Mustang a run for it's money. Too many of those around, though I've seen some nice ones, and the Cobra is really nice, because it's slightly meaner front end.

    Seeing the original 69-70 Challengers, Camaros, and Mustang (fastbacks) is almost better than sex. It's like glimpsing a rare animal or something. I can imagine driving one would be well...

    We don't speak of that here, nor the awful Mustang 2 from a similar time period.

    See? Dodge always trying to one-up Ford. Ford releases the Mustang II and Dodge had to rebadge some POS late '70s Mitsubishi.

    AGREED! I don't really like Mustangs in general, but that one I thought looked ok at first. Now it's EVERYWHERE and most are so plain, no excitement left in that car except for the upgrades.

    I guess I'm spoiled living here in LA, I see those cars in my neighborhood all the time. I'd say every day I see at least 1 of those, and there's a guy who does all Mopar restorations down the street from my mom & stepdad's place so I see a lot of Challengers and other Chrysler beauties in mint condition. On the street I see 2 or 3 late '60s Camaros a day.

    We have several Chargers in non-police capacities around my department. However, Dodge did lend us a police package to try out.

    It proved too small for all the computer equipment on board, the officer, and any "guests" that might ride in the back, but it sure looked sweet! Check it out:

    Not a Challenger, but the "other" cool Dodge, IMO.
