VEHICLE STORY

I bought this car August of 2013, i was looking for a new car to start building my credit and wanted something rwd, V8, with a manual and this fit the criteria perfectly. When looking at Challengers none of them convinced me they were all too common looking or had big ugly stripes (no offense to those who like stripes on their Challenger). Then after much searching to no avail the car salesmen told me that he had a couple more in the back so we went i had already decided i wasnt going to buy a Challenger at that point, or so i thought....He showed me a few more but still the same old boring colors. I told him i was no longer interested and that i was going home then out of the corner of my eye i spotted something orange way in the back of the lot. i asked what that was and he replied with "oh yea, that one. yea that one was ordered by a customer about 4 months ago but he never came to pick it up. He decided he didnt want it. Wanna take a look?" He asked, i said of course and we headed off. The car was covered in a thick layer of dust courtesy of the monsoons we have here in Arizona but it still shined beautifully. The car was perfect everything i was looking for, it stood out thanks to the Hemi Orange paint. It was a 6 speed manual and surprisingly enough came with a sunroof! all for the price of a base Challenger R/T! (Usually sunroofs only come in the R/T Classics) i was sold. Ever since then it has been my road trip car my weekend car my cruiser. It sure does give my SRT-4 a run for its money! But i love them both and am extremely happy and privledged to be the proud owner of my two dream cars at a very early age.
