Talking Greetings guys!!!

Just wanted to say hello. My name is Mike. I just sold a 2006 Charger SRT8 with 2k miles on her. I had her for 13 months. It was absolutely one bad ride. But, I have so many irons in the fire, she was just sittin'. I'm an officer and judge for North Fla. Show Car Ass., my lovely wife and I comp water ski, I'm drumming on a regular basis, <played with Eddie Money once in Daytona for a gig, who cares right?> :p .

I also work two full time jobs blah blah blah.

Anywho, It's great to be a part of this forum. I've owned GM cars most of my life. I had a 2001 WS6 T/A customized, 95 Impala SS customized, Vettes and on and on. The SRT8 was my first Dodge car. I customized it some, and I'll tell ya fella's, it's no slouch. Muscle car wars are alive and well, Thank You Big Guy upstairs.

Like all of you, I can't wait for the new Camaro, and Challenger for that matter to hit the ground. When I saw the Challenger concept, I thought here we go. That car is da bomb. Then Chevy showed us the Camaro concept, and it's like being a kid in a candy store again. As much as I like the Challenger, I'm gonna have to get the Camaro. Black of course!!! GM pinheads should've never killed the F-body to begin with. Thats another thread though.

Here's a few pics of the SRT I just sold. Again, Greetings to all, and hope this finds you and yours well.

Reagrds to ALL!!! Mike

p.s. Is it too late to say Happy New Year???!

Good Morning All!! Thanks TAG/MOOSE. I appreciate the warm welcome. Thanks for the kind words about the SRT too.

Owning it was not a prob, seeing it sit there was. Some would say, let it sit. But I can't have the Camaro AND the SRT. I only have a four car garage, and it's filled.:p Looking forward to being a part of the chat here guys. Let me know if I can help in any way. As far as pics go, got lots of 'em. Just not sure if I can post them here. :eek: JK!!!!!!

Here's a couple more. Have a great weekend all!!

Regards!!!!! Mike

I feel your pain.

I don't enjoy going out to the garage, only being able to start the SS and not take it out for a ride. :(

And as for the garage, once the "new addition" arrives, I have to find a place to keep the SS. I'd like to keep it for sentimental reasons, plus, my family WILL NOT let me sell it.

Guess I shouldn't complain. There are worse problems I could have. :o

I concur MOOSE!!! As far as space that you need, I'm a certified residential contractor, so I can build you the space you need. Hmmm, wonder if I can get my guys to commute to Pa. and back?!?!?!?

Mike, I just realized you owned a BLACK car in Florida! :eek: We were in Orlando last June for the Hot Rod Power Tour, and it was 99 degrees, already! I was shocked to see the kind of damage the sun did to cars down there. You're a brave guy to have a black car in FLA!

It was so hot, I couldn't wait to get outta there. But Jacksonville, and Perry, GA were just as hot! We didn't get into some (more) comfortible temps and humidities until Columbia, SC.

It was funny, by the time we got to Englishtown, NJ, we had to wear light jackets. Go figure.

Evening Doug, All!!! All of my show cars, from the time I started the hobby back in the late 70's, have always, and will probably always be black.

Being a native Floridian, anything below 80 degrees, I go into a coma. It could be 99 everyday buddy, and that would be just fine with me. As for the black, I don't drive the cars enough for it to bother me, and with 13% tint, it's really not that bad. Says me, right?!?!?!?

Next time you come through, let me know and I'll see if there's a car show close by that you might enjoy. I live about 20 minutes SW of St. Augustine.

Regards my friend!! Mike

Ha, Ha, Mike! I guess it's what you get used to! Being a native Michigander, I'm turning on the AC any time it gets above 80 degrees.

We've had a cold spell here for the last week or so, with temps dropping to zero or below every night. That's a little too cold, .......... but I would rather have this than 90+.
