    I think the Mustang's sales might have convinced them that the whole retro thing works. Here's to hoping it does come out.;V

    I like annoying people.
    I like it so much that I might jump ship and get it. 4.6 vs 8.1, I am seriously thinking about it.

    Doesn't look too bad if you don't mind being called Beau or Luke as your driving down the road.;f

    That might actually have been funny if Beau or Luke drove a Challenger... except that they didn't.

    That car is hot. But if they want that much they can keep it.

    Man its a good time to be a gear head! Sure makes up for the early 80's.

    The showcar weighs 4160lbs.
    If the production version weighs that much
    they can keep it.

    Crap, who knows how much gas is gonna cost by the time
    that thing comes out. . .

    I don't care about the weight. A co-worker has a '06 Magnum that tips the scales at 4300lbs and it gets 25mpg with the 5.7. Gotta love that MDS!!! ;f


    That MDS is now available in the Durango with the 5.7 as well.

    Whenever I hear other guys talking about how hot some new car or truck is, I think "that thing isn't CRAP compared to what they made back in the day." If they make that Challenger, it will actually be better than the old 'Cudas and Challengers. I like the reliability/driveability of the new stuff better than any old tank, and this will have the old school gonads with contemporary driveability. Of course, I'll have to wait until the used ones with few options come down into my price range before I can get one...

    They will probably keep the prices down to compete with the Mustang. 19-21k for the V6, 25-30k for the 5.7 hemi, and 33-36k for the SRT-8.

    That would be my guess.
