Added a 2013 Challenger to my stable

Ok so my buddy is giving me a hard time for owning both an old Chevy muscle car (69 Camaro resto-mod) and now owning a new 2013 Dodge Challenger R/T with the 5.7 Hemi. Just wondering if anybody else on this list also owns a Challenger?

I really like the Challenger, it drives down the road like a luxury car and flat out goes when you step on it!!!!

I'm looking forward to trying out the sport mode suspension with traction control turned off when the weather warms up.

I don't have a Challenger, but I had a Magnum RT when they first came out back in 2005. Like you said, the ride is great, and the performance is incredible. I popped the traction control off a few times, and it'd light up the tires quite easily. Not bad for a station wagon....lol

I don’t have a Challenger but three friends have them (all 5.7 Hemis) and I’d be pleased to have one in the garage. Nice cars. There are Dodges that sleep next to the old Chevys in our garage and they all get along just fine.

Congrats on the purchase!

I don't have one but if I were to by a retro car it would be the Challenger, great looking car!

I have a 69 camaro that I'm currently pro touring and a '09 Challenger RT in my garage as well. The Challenger is an awesome daily driver, you will enjoy it.

X2 on that! The Challenger is the best looking muscle car available today IMO.

What's in his garage? I'm thinking he is jealous.

Experience...... It's what you get when you didn't get what you wanted.

Re: Added a 2013 Challenger to my stable

He might be a little bit jealous but I think he just found a way to tease me. He has a 2500HD gas, his wife has a new Camaro but it's a V6, and they have a Charger for a family car. He is a great guy, owns his own auto service shop and has helped me out a lot on my 69 Camaro. Good buddy to have when you have an old car that is for sure.

Anyway I know he really wants to drive it

And he's giving YOU a hard time for owning a Challenger? I've got a Mopar friend, and we are always going back and forth. Jokingly, just like your firend. It gets pretty comical sometimes. Enjoy the new Challenger!
