Please Welcome a New Member of the Family to the Garage!

Well, I finally did it.  I’ve lost a lot of my hair and I just turned 41 so it seemed like a great time to go out and buy this:::


It’s a 2011 Challenger SRT8 with the 392 470HP HEMI motor.  I found it in Pennsylvania with only 3200 miles on it and painted in the coveted “Green with Envy” color.  I plan for this baby to be a beautiful garage ornament and hope to be able to resist the urge to put lots of miles on it.  I still have the G35 and will continue using it as my daily driver. 

I don’t really have a lot of mod plans at the moment.  The previous owner had installed a Corsa cat back exhaust on it already so that is obviously off of the list.  It sure sounds good, btw.  I may install a backup camera to help with all the blind spots and maybe a catch can and/or cold air intake.  We’ll see!

Anyway, I apologize for the lack of posts lately.  I’ll try to get back on track.  I have some work to do on the ‘01 2500 this coming weekend.  This includes a new power steering box and shaft to help get rid of all that steering slop (I hope).  I’m also changing out all of the factory lighting for new fixtures and will be replacing the shocks.  I’ll post an update when I can!
