I really like that new brazen orange color, ..& in fact have tossed around the thought of trading in my 05' phantom black goat for that color on a 06' model!

I have held off because I also like the thought of that new 07' which shows a completely different looking GTO which I like too.

Has anybody checked out the new 06' Dodge Charger/ Daytona? They have an "orange metallic" with a flat black hood w/ Hemi letters on each sides of the hood, ..& a black spoiler w/black accent stripes over the rear wheel wells?

The interior looks nice as well, ..but I believe it comes ONLY with the small 5.7 Hemi at the moment.
I believe its test results are showing low 14's in the quarter, & mid to high 5's from 0-60.

Perhaps if about 300-400 pounds were shaved off the Charger/Daytona....it would have better performance numbers!

I didn't say I would buy one. I was just putting that out there. Didn't a magazine bash the GTO compared to the Mustang for the cost difference. Then another magazine still bashes the GTO over the Charger. Where the hell do they get these writers.

you also have to understand their customer base is people who are NOT gearheads, dont know a crankshaft from a camshaft, cant tell the difference between motor oil and transmission fluid. They used to bash the f-bodies and you see how popular those became. If your a middle aged man and want to take the wife and kids out, you want room with a little power. Hence why they are biased towards the Charger. If your a gearhead, start reading gearhead magazines. They have a whole different side of the story to tell.

whereas with the 17's, you get a 245. not much, but its something.

By the way, on your auto, when doing about 40 and you stab the gas, does it hesitate or just go on command? The one I test drove had a NASTY hesitation before downshifting.
