So Daytona, you are the only one I know of, so far, that has bought a new Challenger. Give us the skinny. Is it all you thought it would be? Does it fall short in any areas? What would you change if you were talking to the Dodge engineers?

...I'm very very happy with the car...so far it has about 4-500 miles on it...

...the few little things I would change are very small, and I am correcting them as time goes on...the Cragar S/S wheels were the first of several changes I have planned for the car

...I would have left the Ram head (Billy Goat) off the nose of the car

...the grill, too cluttered with letters, I would have combined the Challenger SRT into one emblem instead of 2 separate

...it gets a tremendous amount of attention EVERYWHERE I take it

...has a very good road feel and seems to have plenty of go power, but I have yet to really try it out yet

That reminds me...practically every magazine article I've read says that the hood scoops are "fully functional" yet the engine intake is clearly in the left front corner of the engine bay. Are the magazine writers confusing the '08 with the Dodge claim that the '09 SRTs will have functional hood scoops?

What's the scoop?

DAYTONA, please re-post the pic of your sons Challenger as seen through the windshield of your new one. Speaking of a cool screen saver, I was going to make that one but I guess its gone since the hack. Thanks a ton,
