Challenger

Journeying to the dark side... ain't a Pontiac but almost as good
2009 Challenger SRT-8 Hemi Orange... fully optioned.

It has a His-Her's shifter. Chrysler calls it Auto Stick, works the same. Sales kid never heard of Hurst shifter like this. It sounds like manual shifting when going through the gears, downshifting feels the same. Just missing a clutch. Feels as fast as my '05 GTO.

Had my eye on one for a while..... the price was a "steal." Could not pass it up.

I woke up in the middle of the night and I swear I seen Chielf Pontiac standing beside my bed, arms folded shaking his head staring at me. I checked my scalp and its still there......


I don't know why Pontiac didn't keep their version of the dual gate and offer it in other cars. I use it in my '70 now and then when I want to stomp it. It's fun to use. Chrysler took it and ran with it.

NOOOOOOOOO NONE of my Pontiac's were harmed or replaced in the addition of this car...... the '05 is right now, all spotless in the garage with a battery tender hooked to it.....

2004 Grand-AM GT with the SCT package
2005 GTO SAP
1970 GTO
2002 Trans-Am WS.6
2009 Challenger SRT8
2007 RAM 1500 Quad 4x4

The Pontiacs are going nowhere.

The '70 is snot fast..... but my money would be on the '05 GTO and the Challenger. Quickness, the '70 is real fast at launch but down the strip, I don't think it will take it.... Challenger= 425 HP. However for fun to drive....... Judge wins hands down. no contest.

The deal fell into my lap... Just over 9K under dealer KBB for certified used and 4200 under KBB private seller. Dealership took a hit on it was on lot 4 months tying up inventory.. I happened to see it on car guru.... gave them a really low-ball price, they met it all within 200.00. Ida been a fool to pass on it. It looks new smells new and its OMG fast. It was about the same price as I have seen loaded RT's going for.. I just happened to see it at the right time and called.

Called the dealership it was sold at gave VIN and got a history in service records.. the car is immaculate. Still shaking my head at the deal.
