    It’d be nice if we got the heads up on news before everyone else here. 99% of the time I read something in a magazine or on autoblog a week before it ever shows up here. Tidbits on new models? I’ve heard there’s spyshots and stuff floating around of the new charger and 300c, why not post the pics here first? What about other upcoming cars like the Demon and nissan/dodge small car (hornet?). I mostly just come here to hear stuff about the challenger, and the forshadowing post about high impact colors is the type of thing I’d like to see more of on here. The interviews with the challenger designers were good too. How about more stuff of what’s going on behind the scenes at Chrysler, and not the typical PR fluff that takes up most the space. In the age of the internet people can get that sort of stuff on forums/news sites/etc. so if this blog can’t be at least ahead of those news sources and provide information that’s not already there, there’s not much point.

    Ditto what “jre” said…I am thinking about purchasing a 2008 Daytona Charger because the dealer is taking 10 grand off, however, if the new 2010 Charger is more retro and will look better, then I will wait. Lets see photos (at least some sketches)of the new Charger or 300. I know Bob Frederick has seen them so why can’t we? We are the ones purchasing cars for God sake and we can tell you if it looks good or if it will be a flop. Think about it, use us to bounce off ideas so you don’t have a repeat of the Sebring and Avenger. By the way, lets see the high impact colors available on everything and all the time. Lets see the R/T classic Challengers come out in all the high impact colors. Bottom line, use this forum/blog to reveal upcoming product line and ideas so we can give you some feedback before it is too late and you have committed too many dollars.

    What I would like to see is the 2011
    Charger and 300 sketches !

    Yup, I’m a charger guy (old school style) and I would love to see more info on the charger re-style. I’ve heard it’s more like the challenger, actually shows some family resemblance to it’s granddad, so to speak.

    That, and more challenger stuff.

    That’s pretty much what I come here looking for.

    I would like information on what the Challenger designers are up to. What new projects are they working on, what new projects are on the horizon and what is Dodge doing to become a leaner and meaner company so you can survive in the 21st century.

    I like it when you provide us with data such as the number of Chargers produced and in what the color schemes. I like posts that show pictures and videos too.

    The other thing I would love to see, though you have no control over it, is more positive posts from your customers as opposed to all the negativity.

    I am pulling for you guys and that is why I am purchasing a 2009 Challenger. Just waiting for Bob Frederick to be able to place my order for a B5 Blue Classic.

    More Challenger news. Color options on all models including the V6.

    I always enjoy seeing how some owners customize their cars. More coverage of shows and maybe some spotlights on individuals would be fun. And that includes the vintage stuff too.

  • Wrench

    I would like to see if the designer team can come up with a concept of the 70 cuda because the challenger is like driving in the 70′s again.

    More info on Challenger production, It’s obvious after 30 plus years of NO muscle cars several dealers have forgotten how to order a Challenger for the “Gear heads” among us who have money to invest. I also realize with tight allocations most dealers are ordering loaded up R/T’s with the idea of more profit for survival. But come on, the Idea of these cars was performance, leave the Fluff, Lace, and Hole in the roof for the Hemi 300′s. Some of us want a Challenger that doesn’t look like its our Mom’s car. Give us a few base 27F 6-speeds minus the water cooler frills. Fantastic car! Waiting since August, Joe Dirt.

    Long-time car nut and Mopar owner/enthusiast. Previous owner of a Challenger, Chargers (6), Chryslers, and Plymouths. One of the most fun cars was my 1986 turbocharged Dodge Shelby Charger. Also enjoyed a “sleeper” turbo, the 1991 Dodge Spirit R/T. So while I’m an old muscle car enthusiast, for the practicality of everyday driving I equally enjoy a smaller, lighter, smaller-engined, manual transmission hatchback or sedan, ESPECIALLY when there is a turbo model available.

    Since Chrysler Corp. has vast experience in building turbocharged, 4 cylinder cars, I have hopes that there will be some upcoming models that might fall in that category. Any news about the possibilty of any of those cars appearing in the near future would be greatly appreciated. There is a large network of Turbo-Dodge (and Turbo-Mopar) enthusiasts who still enjoy these kinds of Mopars, too.
