Why ---Mad Ogre said:Buy a 2006? :shock:
For the love of pete - why? For that much money there are lots of classic Mustangs that you could restore and rebuild and make a real muscle car out of!
Dino --dinosaur said:Ogre, what Mike is probably trying to say is as we get old(er) we like our creature comforts. :lol: There's nothing like a car that you can drive to the track with the A/C going full blast listening to the tunes, running consistent 12s or better, then driving back home.
For my next trick (I think) it's gonna be the Dodge Magnum AWD with the Hemi. However, in '06 Chrysler is going to bore out the 5.7 to get 425 h.p.! Wowsa! 8) Unfortunately, for now anyway, it's only going in the 300. Also Dodge will have their own version of a sedan called naturally, Charger. Expect to see these in Police Packages.
Chebby & Furd with the exception of the new Mustang, still don't get it.
Not everyone wants or can use a 2 seater that lists up to $60,000 with tax.
Remember when you could buy a '58 Chevy Del Ray 2dr post with the 348 tri power setup? How about in order to run NASCAR in the early '60s the car manufs. had to sell 100 street versions? Now you got 2door Taurus"??? that couldn't run on the street if they were in an enclosed trailer. :roll:
BTW, what I posted about the new Chyslers is in the newest issue of Motor Trend magazine. I get it by mail so it might not be on the shelves yet. The Charger looks way cool.
I had a 1985 Camaro IROC/Z28 that I bought for myself when I graduated college. That car is the reason I will NEVER own another General Motor's vehicle as long as I live!dinosaur said:In 1979 I was looking for a Firebird Formula with the 400 motor for the same reason. I didn't like the big birdie. A dealer I'd gone to called me and said he had a new T/A but unfortunately it came through without the hood decal so it would be hard to sell. I bought it and after the a/c and the transmission was fixed :shock: it was a pretty good car.

I'd have cracked his jaw and then told him that was HIS tough luck.
