By the way, is the rendering of the new Challenger accurate? I hope so, because it sure looks awesome! Any word, guys?


Waiting for the stage packages for my Scat!


I’ve been a gear head since I’ve been breathing oxygen. I currently own a 2018 Ram 6.7 Cummins diesel with an Aisin backed transmission that gives ne a power rush when I put the metal to the pedal. I have previously owned several Mopar cars 3 trucks and an old ram charger 1975 getter her done son lol.


I believe!


So excited I know the chances are slim but man what I would give to have a Durango 392… that’s all lol I don’t need the hellcat version I would end up in jail.


It would be a blast to do that

I have been a fan of Dodge muscle, since I first heard my Dads 1970 Challenger start up. Nothing sounds like the Mopar starter just hearing it crank is amazing. Then ignition the motor roars to life. It changes you. I would be honored to represent the Dodge brothers as Chief Doughnut Maker and sharing the experience of firing up a Dodge Challenger Hellcat with as many people as possible.
Thank you!!
