    Just thought I’d submit a post regarding my continuing love affair with my SRT.

    She was a factory order which not only was slated to be my retirement send off, but also arrived at the dealership exactly 2 hours after I left my office on my last day of work at the end of this past June. Talk about perfect timing! Since then, I’ve only put 2600 miles on her (just enjoying my retirement while relaxing a bit) and at the 6 month mark, I just returned from the dealership to have my first oil change done. While I was there, I also had them do the RRT 15-102 update for the Harmon Kardon stereo. WOW,, what a difference!! Clearly there were speakers that weren’t activated previously! Not only did I have my favorite 50s tunes cranked up on the return trip home, I also put her in ‘Sport’ mode for the first time on a longer trip. Who says these Challengers can’t handle twisty curves? Here in Central VA and especially in my area, I have plenty of winding, hilly and tight curves. I pushed her more than usual and she was tight and flat-footed through all the curves! I “really” enjoyed my ride home, lol!

    I can honestly say that every time I get behind the wheel, I get the same level of excitement and thrill as I did the first time I drove her off the lot! She’s definitely a keeper!

    No. I ordered her from my local dealer here in Charlottesville, VA. :)
