The 2008 Dodge Challenger, Not a Golf Cart

I'm not a Mopar guy (Chrysler, Dodge, Plymouth), but the new 2008 Dodge Challenger is one sweet looking musclecar. While the liberal global warming wackos are demanding we all purchase electric golf carts to drive, the American consumer is demanding something else.
The Retro Ford Mustang and Dodge Charger have been huge successes and Chevrolet is scheduled to release their retro Camaro soon also...

From Reuters:

Due to unprecedented demand, Dodge dealers will begin taking orders onDec. 3 for the limited-edition 2008 Dodge Challenger SRT8 models. Each willfeature a numbered dash plaque and a 6.1-liter HEMI(R) V-8 engine. 2008Challenger SRT8 models will be available in Black, Silver and HEMI Orange. Allwill feature dual "carbon-fiber" hood stripes, harkening back to the originalDodge Challenger.

"The 2008 Dodge Challenger SRT8 offers pure American pony-car muscle,"said James Press, Vice Chairman & President - Chrysler LLC. "With styling thatstays true to Challenger's original heritage, an abundance of modern amenitiesand cutting-edge technology, the 2008 Dodge Challenger SRT8 will deliver theSRT credo of benchmark performance at a tremendous value.

"The Challenger SRT8 is only the beginning of the story, as we'll soonfollow with a complete lineup of Challenger models that will offer a widearray of features and deliver outstanding value for our customers," Pressadded.

Customers may begin placing orders at their Dodge dealer on Monday, Dec.3. They can expect to take delivery of their vehicle next spring.

The all-new 2008 Dodge Challenger SRT8 will be built at the ChryslerCanada Assembly Plant in Brampton, Ontario, on the same assembly line with theDodge Charger, Charger SRT8, Magnum, Magnum SRT8, Chrysler 300 and Chrysler300 SRT8 vehicles.

Pricing for the complete all-new Dodge Challenger lineup will be announcedat a later date.

SRT performance vehicles - including the Dodge Viper SRT10, Dodge CaliberSRT4, Dodge Magnum SRT8, Dodge Charger SRT8, Chrysler 300C SRT8, Jeep(R) GrandCherokee SRT8, and now, the Dodge Challenger SRT8 - are engineered byChrysler's in-house performance organization: Street and Racing Technology...Continued...

Never fear, the nay-nelly no-bobs are out there claiming it will never work, people won't buy it, gas is too expensive.... "2008 Camaro, dead on Arrival?"
...better order a golf cart instead according to some.

I'll take one of these instead...
