Today the wife and I go to Wallyworld to do some shopping. On the way out I need to fill Intimidator up with go juice so we stop at Murphys to get gas. Now I am outside pumping gas and the wife is sitting in the Challenger writing all my gas info in my little book. When I get through with the pump I get in and start the car, she looks at me and tells me that everyone that passed by was staring at her.. :eek:.

I said, really? Dam you look as good as the car then!!....:thumbupleft:

I spent most of the day washing and waxing her, so she looked pretty slick.............my car guys:chillpill:, get your minds out of the gutter!!:tappingfoot:



Now to make a long story short, she knows how much attention my car gets when we are on the road, so she eats it up too. Too bad she doesnt get this much attention when she drivers her convertible stang.:geek:

my favorite line came from my soon to be 13yo daughter,

"Dad, i feel like im in a goldfish bowl"

at first she really liked the attention now i guess because she
is going to be a teenager she isnt too happy about it.

I know what you mean guys, my wife feels self-conscious when she drives mine. She suggested me tinting the windows but I don't wanna.
I've had the car for just over a year now and it just won't stop!

I have had a similar experience. I walked out of a convenience store and some guy passed by in a truck looking directly at my car screaming "DAMNNN!" These 2 girls that were filling up their car looked at each other with disgusted faces. And one says "Pigs!"

I started to laughing thinking to myself "Don't flatter yourselves, he was talking about my car" haha

I notice that more men notice the car than women. My wife says the car just reeks testosterone. :D She still loves to drive it though... so much so that I think we may get her a Challenger of her own in a few more years.

I had a kid at the Sonic driverthru tell me that my car was sex on wheels. It brightened up the crappy day I was having.

It's really kinda cool ,,the way a total stranger will come up and start telling you about the one they used to have. Or the one their brother,dad,cousin,,etc. We get alot of ,," man,, that's a schweeeeet ride, man." comments.

I stopped to get some fuel somewhere North of Houston this weekend and a couple guys came up and starting talking about the car. Probably the most common comments I get from guys in my age group (think 50ish) are (in order):

1. Dodge and Ford did the retro thing right but Dodge did it more righter.

2. No one likes the restyled back end of the Mustang.

3. Chevy missed with the Camaro but they still respect the car.

4. The Challenger is the most accurate reproduction
muscle car to date.

5. Everyone knows or is related to someone that owned a B body back in the day.

Jack and I did the car show in Pineville and no telling how many folks stopped by our cars to chat. But what I get everytime is they say how the Blue just makes the car pop.

My son told me his friends comment on how people swivel to get a better look at his Tored SE. I kinda said well good, that's nice. Then we "borrowed" it (before my R/T Classic) to make a run to New Orleans. Sure enough it was true! I thought, this is pretty crazy, the car has been out on the road for 2 years and this car only has one option, a Sirius radio. But people really seem to dig it!
Kudos to Dodge for making all the models look good.

I find a lot of fast food drive-thru's love the Challenger. Half of them say it's their car and thank me for taking care of it. Have to say though, you make some interesting friends and now I have two people at a What-A-Burger that hook me up with apple pies.

Only other fun thing was last Friday when I was getting the Cherry Bombs installed. A guy having his muffler fixed on his 98 Ram told me I should strip all the paint off it, go with Hemi Orange, a big 01 on the side and the Dixie flag on top. I sort of had to look down at the ground and confess that I'd love to, except that it's only a V6 and just wouldn't do the General Lee credit.

The kid at the Taco Bell drive thru said "I like the Dodge better than the others even though the Camaro will do 160." What do you say to something like that. I told him "wow, I guess I better sell this and go get me one of those.":bigrolling:

My best compliment came while I was on Rt 55 here in south Jersey. These 2 young girls (who were hot by the way!) drove up besides me in the passing lane and proceeded to seriously check out me and my Candy-O. Totally ingnoring my wife (who is hotter by the way!), who is staring angrily at me cause she seen the smirk on my mug. :dance:

I'm kinda late in the game here, but I have absolutely no doubt the double-takes and stares are for my car and not for myself! lol Heck, I also stare when I see a Chally on the road.

I had 5 different people comment on my car yesterday. At the drive in 2 guys walked up to the window, and said "Hemiwoman" (my license plate) will you do a burnout? Then while at BJ's Wholesale club had 3 different people ask about car. What is it, that's a beautiful car and what kind of gas mileage do you get? To top it off, it was dirty and needed a bath, but the people didn't care.
