A big Congratulations goes out to Coyote, our June 2011 MOTM winner :head3: :w00t: :pepper: :ura1: :bananalama: :Banana01: :999: :woohoo:



Wow. I never expected to be in this position. Knowing the names of previous winners, it is an honor. I was never an owner of anything close to a muscle car, but I had friends in high school that owned the likes of GTO's, Mustang's, etc. I always admired the Challenger back in the 70's but never even knew someone who owned one.

Fast forward 30 years. Late in 2008, I saw a Hemi Orange SRT out in the wild. I had no notion whatsoever that Dodge was coming out with this car again. But, I instantly knew that this was a Challenger. That's how good the engineers did in the design. My eyes were wide and glued on this car as it crossed my path. I told myself that I was going to have one of these beautiful cars. In 2009, Chrysler succumbed to a dismal economy (they shut down the factory) so that made my pursuit of this car that much more difficult. I was searching almost nation-wide for a Challenger--in white.


I was finally able to order one in April, 2009 from the factory that was re-opening in June. I was trolling the Z for a couple of months and even had some minor mods ordered before I had the car. After almost five months of waiting, my Angel came to town. At that point in time, it was one of only two Challengers at a dealer's lot in New Mexico. It was my first brand new car, first V8, and first pony car all rolled into one. Lucky me! It is not a show car, but I do enjoy making Angie look her best by adding mods as she is my daily driver and grocery-getter!


I can only hope to contribute in whatever way I can to this forum. It is THE best site for a Challenger lover to be--not biased, just a fact. The members here are friendly, knowledgeable, and quick to help anyone who asks a question or needs advice. It is a family atmosphere and I have felt embraced ever since I joined. Anyone can be a Challenger owner, but it takes a special person to own a Challenger in the spirit it deserves.
