Hi all
I actually bought my first Challenger at the end of August 2017. A 2011 SXT (V6). ELEVEN DAYS LATER - WHAM! Old guy in a silverado blew a stop sign and I T-Boned him at 45 MPH - TOTALED! (Pic of that posted in the "Challenger Crashes" thread with more details.

Three days after the wreck, I hobble back into my Dodge dealership and my salesman asks why I'm driving my old car again (2003 Saturn Ion III - glad I wasn't driving that when the wreck happened!). I showed him the picture of the 2011 and said, "I broke it. I need a new one." HAHAHA! The look on his face was priceless!
A few hours later, I drove off the lot in a 2012 R/T Classic (M6). MAN! I loved that car! Decked her all out too! Did everything myself and had no plans of parting ways with her. Found out from FCA that she was 1:13 made with that build - I made her 1:1 =)

Fast forward to the end of April this year - Someone posted in the Facebook group: "We Are Mopar - Official" that he just traded his 2018 T/A 392 in and come to find out, he lives 20 minutes away from me! I hit him up right away asking where he traded it in and more details about it. When I first started looking for Challengers, THIS was EXACTLY (options, color, everything) that I wanted - but couldn't afford it at the time. I took it as a sign from the Mopar Gods. So, on 05/06/19, I made the tough decision to trade in my beloved "Roxy" and am now the PROUD owner of a 2018 T/A 392! MY GOD I LOVE THIS CAR! Haven't got the production numbers back on her yet (been about a month) from FCA...

SO.... Hello! Happy to be here! Mopar or No Car!
