    The bride & I were on Cape Cod looking at homes to purchase last Saturday. We put about 260 miles on my SRT during the trip. We were gone almost 10 hours as we drove through residential areas looking at real estate listings. During that whole time I only saw one Challenger, a white SE.

    I really don't see that many Challengers in my daily travels. I saw one black R/T pulling into Patriot Place at Gillette Stadium yesterday. Every once in awhile I see another R/T with NH tags "FAST 1" on Rte 152 near my home. Other than car shows, I never see Challengers on a regular basis.

    How many Challengers do you observe in your daily travels.

    I saw a nice white R/T near the Falmouth area last weekend. I always see a challenger on the road when I travel out of state for work. I get so excited and race up to him,, then realize I'm in a shitty rental car and slow down. Always see a challenger when I'm not driving mine. pisses me off. lol

    I usually see one or two a day between home and work. There are a bunch of SRTs around my home, but they're usually stored and don't get out much.
    Now Mustangs and Camaros.....see a bunch every day. Can't throw a stone in any direction without hitting one.
    :sad:

    Used to be I never saw any, but in the past few months I'm seeing many more on the roads. Over the weekend we saw 2 or 3 each day.

    Yesterday I had a doctor appointment in Scottsdale. I saw a BB SE, it already had a bunch of parking lot door dings down the sides. Sad.

    This morning I saw a Stone White R/T Classic as I was pulling out of my neighborhood in my Challenger, I smiled and gave them a thumbs up - my windows were down and I was driving across in front of them at a light -didn't get any response back.

    Probably not, Pete. I use mine mainly late Friday afternoons, Saturday, and Sundays. I haven't been down in the area of Pleasant St with it in a long time.

    I got mine in Aug 09. For almost a year I never saw another one on the road.

    Now I see about 1 a week. There is even another one in the same parking lot as me at work some days.

    Saw a ToRed R/T yesterday at the Wilton mall and HO STR8 with black strobe side stripe on Rte 50 today. Probably them most I've see out and about, except for our local Challenger Z meets.

    The bride & I drove to Maine yesterday. We put on around 270 miles and did not see one Challenger. These cars are rare around here.

    The bride and I were house-hunting on Cape Cod yesterday. We were gone for 12 hours and during that time I observed one Challenger. It was a black SRT with Mass tags parked at a beach parking lot in Yarmouth.

    I see 1 black SRT on monthly basis, and an SE every now and then. I'm the only R/T I see! Is this good or bad?
    Considering people have been giving me a thumbs up the times I'm out with mine and I don't see that anywhere else, i live in an area where people are hard to please, we're doing something right.
