    I heard the other way around. If it is only SRTs at launch, it'll be another long wait and see.

    I heard 6.1s and V6s for the first run, but the 6.1 isn't the SRT. That was a few months ago, though, and it's possible that things have changed (again).

    I heard all 6.1L, so assumed SRT. That would make the 6.1L the RT, and possibly 6.? the SRT to follow. Sorry for my quick jump
    on the word SRT.....

    Is there chance that challenger will get phoenix V8 later in future instead of hemi?

    Then Phoenix-based V8s, or so we've heard from a source, but I haven't heard anything about timing -- and I wouldn't be surprised to see them branded as "all-new Hemis".

    But isn't phoenix V8 supposed to be DOHC (or sohc) and not CIB (cam in block)?

    One from the rear. Lots of speculation here. I only put the backup lights above the Dodge because there are holes there on a bra in a spy pic. I don't like it there, and hope it wont be, but as I am trying to handicap, here it is:

    I just saw it a commercial covering the Dodge line up, at the end the new Challenger lines up against a 70 Plum Crazy. The new car leaves the 1970 standing still. :lol:

    Nice spot Lexus Lady.

    Awesome! Wonder how much they had to speed the footage up to make it look like the concept Challenger is really that fast...

    ...or maybe that's not the concept Challenger...

    2. Bidders will be going through Kompolt' s Pre-Qualification process and will need to fill out a prequalification form at the following secure address:​
    3. A Kompolt representative will contact them via phone to verify their contact information. The representative will also give instructions on what is needed to verify funds. We will be verifying funds either by having the bidder provide us a bank letter from their financial institution, or if it is easier for the bidder we will also accept a current statement from a brokerage account, checking account, or savings account. We will ask the bidder to cross out any personal information before faxing any statements and circle the current balance for us. The letters/statements can be f axed to 805-201-2720
    4. To place bids of $15,000.00 or more, the bidders will need to complete one of the following:
    A. Place a credit card on file with eBay (which takes just a few minutes):

    B. Become ID Verified (There is a $5 fee and can t ake 1 - 3 days to process.):
    5. Kompolt will walk each bidder through a test auction on eBay with a starting bid of $15,000.00. We will ask all bidders to place a bid on the test auction in order to verify they are set up correctly. This test auction will allow us t o assure the bidders they will have no problem placing a bid on the live auction.
    = = = = Once the auction goes live = = = =
    1. Bidders will log in to eBay on their own, with their own eBay id and password and click the button at the top of the Challenger #2 page that reads: Place Bid

    2. This action jumps them to the bottom of the same page where they will enter the amount of their bid. They have 2 choices: A: Enter a minimum bid noted by eBay or B: Enter the maximum bid they are willing to spend and walk away… and let eBay do the bidding for them. This second option is called eBay Proxy bidding. Here is a link for more info: http://pages.ebay.com/help/buy/proxy-bidding.html eBay will then ask the bidder to ‘review’ their bid on the next screen. If the bid amount is correct, then the bidder simply clicks the button that reads: Confirm Bid.

    eBay will then present the bidder with another screen indicating A: “Congratulations, you are the current high bidder! or B: “You have been outbid”. Depending on the message, the bidder may or may not need to place another bid.
    Kompolt representatives are available to assist bidders with eBay set-up and the pre-qualification process. Hours are M-F 8am – 5pm Pacific Ti me: 805-201-2711
