Front end looks like an irritable robot from Futurama, and the chassis look like it was based on an oversized cereal packet, but I've no doubt if they made it it would sell... [in America]. You want something stylish to ease the middle aged years away go for a 427.

Oh hell no. Car and Driver did a few mock ups of a Dodge Challenger convertible. If Dodge does this, I will buy this car. I will never drive it. It will sit in my garage and be rubbed with a diaper. :)
As of now, Dodge doesn't plan to produce a Challenger convertible. So I recommend waiting for the Camaro convertible. ;)

Dodge did produce a concept( I believe it was for SEMA) of a convert Challenger. But, they stated they do not plan to produce it and the concept was sent off to the crusher.

The Challenger is already selling in the US. They just haven't made a convertible yet. If they do, it's mine.

The car you posted is nice, but not for me.

Dodge ALWAYS says they aren't going to do something. Then it shows up all of a sudden. :) They did that with the PT Cruiser. I bet they do it at some point.

I like the Camaro too, but I really hate GM cars. The ones I've owned have always been crappy.

Always a day away
I hafta say, Lee, that Challenger convertible is a sweet looking ride. :cool:

I had always been a fan of Chevy muscle cars over the Mopars, but the new Challengers have really impressed me; more so than the new Camaros.

I've always had good luck with Dodge and Chrysler. GM, not so much- actually they've been really bad for me.

I thought you hated cars, Lee?

I'll take a Challenger, Camaro and Mustang. kthnxbai.
Oh- I love cars, just not owning them in the city. I wasn't kidding in my OP- the car would barely be driven, and only in the summer. It would be stored in winter.

Ahhh gotcha.

You should get one. Put the top down and get blown ;)
Oh- are you kidding? The boys will come running. One pass down Halsted St, and I wouldn't even have to set foot in a bar. :)

I hate my cell phone. And I want THAT car, not just any car. And again, it would be barely driven.

Quit encouraging him :(
Shut up. :D

The only way I'd buy a current model Camaro is if it were convertible. Otherwise, it has to be vintage.

The challenger is nice but I prefer the Camaro myself. First order of business is a motorcycle (after the house).

Lee, I think you'd look awesome in that car. When it comes out, buy it!
Thanks! And I don't think I'd be able to stop myself from buying it.

Yeah, I could settle for the Camaro if Dodge never makes a convertible Challenger. But I can wait. :) I'm betting Dodge eventually does it.

I like teasing Lee :D
Whore. :)

That would be a site too see.

Make it happen :D
All they have to do is make the car. ;)

Now you're talking! and if you mix vintage style with that motorcycle dream then you can't go wrong with one of these ;)

That's exactly it, I want a Triumph Bonneville real bad but as long as I am not in a place with a garage I refuse to buy one. If I were in CA maybe it'd be ok covered, but not where I am now.

Yeah you definitely need to have it in a garage if you have proper winter weather. Great bikes though, keep that dream alive they are well worth the money!

Sorry to hijack your thread Lee - that Challenger looks better as a tin top I reckon.

No car looks better with a tin top. That's just the way it is. :)
Really Lee? ;)





Granted, not the prettiest car in the world to start with but the soft top version makes children scream "MUMMY I'M FRIGHTENED WHAT IS THE BAD THING!?"

Car nuts. :rolleyes:

Just keep repeating to yourself over and over, "A car is not an extension of my manhood. A car is not an extension of my manhood. A car is not...."
