    Don't need to make it a widebody.... 305s just fit inside the wheel wells.

    Maybe it's me, but there's something a little different about your grille compared to the real life SRT grille. The rounded area for the headlight looks a little MORE rounder and a touch wider. (But again, maybe I have an over active imagination!)

    To me, THAT is how a Charger grille should look: less sharp angles, more fluid and rounded edges. Rounder and slightly wider hits all the right notes. Sort of...

    Yes, I know... that's not a Charger.

    might look different because I have the headlights blacked out, too. But I assure you it's a stock Hellcat. xD

    You should see it outside. Went to the dealer to see if I could find an F8 in person.. alas, no, but they did have an IndiGo there. That is a hell of a blue. It'd be a hard choice for me between F8 & IndiGo.

    I love that color. B5 was too light for me and Contusion Blue is too dark. This is perfect.

    Wow, that’s interesting... reminds me of the wood grain ball console shifters before the slapstick.

    That is something.

    Mini used to make the automatic shifters look just like the manual ones IIRC.

    It's a modern take on F8, but the more I see these cars in person... the more I love them.

    The back of this Charger looks like the front of a car.

    Not to be "that guy" but the car in the picture is a Coronet.

    I'm the first in my bloodline to begin the MOPAR love... took a lot to get my Dad out of Fords (thank God I did). My MOPAR knowledge goes back to about early 00's.

    I don't really have a specific era I'm good at. Just certain cars, engines, trim levels, etc.

    The earliest Mopar I have vague knowledge in is the second-gen A-Body Darts (from 64-66). I still wouldn't be able to tell you the engines, trim levels, colors or whatever the car came in though. Whereas I could tell you a lot more about the Omni GLH-S and Shelby CSX (like a Subaru 22B but based on the Shadow and without the AWD). That's the brilliance of having a site/forum like Allpar though, we can indulge ourselves in the areas we're good at and learn in areas we're not :)

    (Whether that be from eachother or from articles on the site).

    My best friend's first car was a Plymouth Neon, 5 Speed Manual, with a coffee maker switch in the dash to turn on the radiator fan and a sound system worth 4x the car's value.

    Pimp my ride plays in the background. Lol

    It still amazes me how cheap Neons are on Craiglist. 600 Bucks for what might be a running vehicle! A few bits here and there and you could have yourself a nice beginner rallycar.
