    What about a resto mod . All the advantages of modern and the style of the real thing . Worth a pretty penny once completed.

    Definitely would have gone that route. Two years ago I sold my 2 71 Challengers. Would have been perfect for that

    It would be nice if you could wait for another Hellcat to show up. I sense that is the car you would like in the garage. Stupid people are always buying them and wreck them shortly after. Would think that you could get one down the road. Good luck and I will definitely enjoy your next build!!!

    @MommaBetty You are correct, I would love a Hellcat in my garage. It seems it might be years until the price drops enough for me.

    Small update, No more mismatched tires. I put the 275's on the rear and the 2 best matching tires on the front. With everything balanced, she rides like a dream. I tested the tire balance at a speed I don't normally drive, it was all smooth. The bad news is the front splitter wasn't able to handle the down force it created. I had to turn around and pick it off the road. I didn't have it attached properly as it was what was left after the initial crash. Time to upgrade to a 2011 SRT splitter.

    I did find out what was happening with my poor radio reception. The glass guy didn't plug in the lead to the glass, he just tucked it under the headliner. Snap it on and it works like a charm. Some people! Going to check my buddies B5, I bet it has the same issue because we used the same glass company.
