wow, that was close!

well I almost did it, I saw a new Charger Daytona man it was sharp bronze orange with the flat black hood and Daytona stripes the salesman offered it to me for 31k I told him to race me for slips he just laughed and said noo way, but there in the showroom was a 06 Dodge Ram SRT-10 with a 505hp Viper engine damn,,and right beside it was a matching 06 Viper both white with blue racing stripes, the Viper was priced at 100k and offered to me for 86k, the Ram was priced at 44k and offered to me at get this 35k,i almost drove a new truck home guys, if I only new about this truck before the GTO, then as I walked out just about all the salesmen and a few buyers was drooling over my GTO and I had to think, what am i doing at a dodge dealer???

City MPG 9. Highway MPG 12. Real world MPG 5. Plus, it's a pickup truck. No, thanks.

Overall, I have a hard time buying any Chrysler product because (1) they're owned by a German company and (2) their dealers are rancid from top to bottom. Can you imagine dropping the better part of 100 large on a car -- only to be treated like crap while negotiating -- and putting up with terrible service?

I remember a game we played in gym class, dodge ball. The object to it is to avoid the ball. I've always associated the word dodge with avoid.

My wife drives a Chrysler T&C - nice vehicle, salesman was decent, service has always been a good experience. That said, I've seen the Ram with the Viper engine in it, seen the Charger (or should I say 300C?), and I'd still not own either of them. I think the Crossfire looks great, but it's slow and I don't fit in it. I drove a 93 Viper many years ago when I was thinking of selling my twin turbo, and what a piece of junk - the pedals were offset to the left, it shook like it was falling apart, the clutch release point was at the very top, and it was slow for a 400hp car (probably due to the aerodynamics when the top was off), but everyone looked at the car, and it handled freakishly good. So, no Dodge cars for me, just the minivan. If I win the lottery, I'm getting a 2006 Z06.

IF I had the money I would be driving the 505hp viper not to dis the vette but the viper looks soooo much better, the Vette really needs a styling change the back of the car looks flat with no design and if I had that kind of money I could care less what kind of mpg it got, but sience I could not fit in either im like 6'7 I would be happy in that SRT-10, here in WV every one has a pick-up from Silverados to F-250 and I can state a fact I have seen more Dodge Rams beside the road with broken tie rod ends than beers at the bar , I guess it those 10 inch rims and big ol tires are killing them, but anyway that Viper was the sharpest car iv seen in a long time, and for 35k for 505hp 500ft.lb torque and a 500 watt infinity stereo and a 6 speed in a truck...thatís not a bad deal. considering around here a fully loaded Silverado Z71 sells for 33k and its not all about the performance or the looks but ya gotta have a little of both, like if your ol lady is no good in the bed but looks real good, or shes ugly as sin but the best ya ever had, would ya trade a little of both of them to get the perfect girl?
