2010 Plum Crazy Challenger STR8

Hey all...wanted to share the wife's Plum Crazy SRT 8!

Been looking at them for her for a couple months and yesterday found the exact one she wanted! M6 with NAV, no sunroof...exact match!!

I've drove it a bit yesterday and it's a very, very nice ride!! It's comparable to the Camaro SS as far as power though I'd have to give the overall nod in power to the Camaro SS.

The ride though...is great! Lots of room too!

She loves the retro styling and I have to say myself...it's actually a very nice car!

She loves it and really, that's all that matters! As she says..."I drive a purple car!"

I saw a plum crazy Challenger at the Toronto autoshow, they look pretty good. Also saw a few other purple cars scattered around, its making a comeback.

One thing though, I laugh a little when I see the CF stripes on Challengers. I suppose a CF patterned vinyl is cheaper than spend money on any actual weight reduction.

If I was to own a Challenger, that would be my colour. Plum Crazy is the best colour IMO.

She certainly enjoys it...and hey, wife wants a modern muscle car, plus it's a M6...how could a guy complain?

Pretty cool!!

On a serious note those Plum Crazy SRT's do look great. Congrats to the wife.

Thumbs up

Such a bad ass car. I was just looking at some on cardomain.com
How does your wife like it? Pros and cons?
I think this car looks way better than the Camaro, sorry to say. I am a Chevy guy too, but I like the styling of the Challenger so much better.
ENJOY!!!

She loves it! We have been looking at Challengers for a little while and always like the styling of them. I'll agree and say visually, it's an eye pleaser!

No cons about it that I can think of and she'll certainly not have any to add! Overall...she's as happy with the Challenger as I was with my Camaro SS!

Thanks to all the other comments too

Legend: That color dates back to the Dodge Dart Swinger of the late 60's. The Challenger has way better styling lines. Congrats to the both of you!!

Nice car. Great color too.

But... why no sunroof?

I can't picture having my camaro without t-tops and my bmw and audi without a sunroof.

So in other words, you didn't feel how heavy it is as compared to the camaro, when you were driving it?

Neither of us really care for or use a sun roof...so no reason to get one. We had them on other cars we've owned and these last two we just didn't want/order them.

Nope...not at all! Have you drove one of these? Yeah it's a heavy car but it doesn't feel heavy to either of us. That was the first thing I ask her when she was taking a test drive...."does it feel heavy?"...she said..."no more than your Camaro"...?

But honestly, doesn't feel heavy like I thought it would and from reading about it. Very nice ride and feels rather nice I might say!
