Fairly new to the forum, joined about a ago, and enjoy seeing the diversity of different Challengers, modifications and accessories.

I hope the LX platform lasts a few more years.

I live in Sussex County NJ where it's very hilly. The road to my house has a 254' elevation from the highway a 1/4mile away and I've always bought either Jeep vehicles or AWD mopars cars.

I bought new a 2006 Chrysler 300C with a 5.7 Hemi and AWD. So I knew the LX platform could handle a Hemi and AWD drive configuration. When it hit 120,000 on the odometer I traded it in for a 2014 Chrysler 300 with Pentastar V6 and AWD. The V6 was pretty peppy and fantastic in deep snow.

I wanted a Challenger when they first came out but was disappointed there was no AWD options which I needed. I was aesthetic when I heard they were going to finally add AWD to the Challenger, but a little disappointed I couldn't get a Hem Challenger with AWD.

So regardless of the lack of a Hemi I traded the 2014 Chrysler 300 for a new 2017 Challenger GT V6 and AWD with a beautiful Contusion Blue paint job and White Leather interior! I picked it up from the dealer in a 14" snow storm and it chugged along and spit out the snow just like my Chrysler 300's.

Sharing a few pictures of my Challenger including one with the Challenger sharing stable space with my 65 Mustang Convertible;)

Thanks for having me on the forum with other passionate Challenger owners!

All the best,
Gary Schultz
