    Go to www.youtube.com and search "SAE 2008 Challenger SRT". Some one videoed the event, very informative, especially when they talk about keeping the
    product fresh. They have lots of ideas.

    Mopar Action magazine came today, the 09 R/T is on the cover and there is a nice article inside. Really nothing that has not been discussed here, but it is nice to see it in print. It says that the SRT will be available in late 09 in B5 blue. Still no mention of Plum Crazy or Sublime Green. These are 2 colors that are a must. There is no yellow either.

    For what ever its worth, an 08 SRT8 orange Challenger was just spotted on the 401 (Ontario, Canada) about 40 min west of the BAP factory...(driving...not on a car carrier )

    Those could not possibly be customer cars awaiting delivery?

    On Ebay I just saw a Challenger that says the status changed from D to D1(gate line schedule). What does that mean. The last six of the VIN were 289377.

    It's Gona Be Built.

    Find out What is the Current Sequence # is & Do Some Math. Subtract the Numbers & Divide By How Many are Day Built. A Real Close Cluse as To When.

    TMD :p

    Sales Projection- 04/17/08

    "Dodge expects hot sales for the first two years with its new Challenger sport coupe and has built a business plan in which the car will make money over its life cycle if sales fall off then...Chrysler expects to sell 20,000 to 30,000 Challengers a year once it has the full model line in production. Chrysler will build a limited edition of 6,400 425-horsepower Challenger SRT8 versions for the 2008 model year. The full model line hits the road this fall as 2009 models, adding a 250-horsepower 3.5-liter V6 and 370-horsepower 5.7-liter Hemi V8. Production of 2009 Challengers begins this summer at Chrysler's Brampton, Ontario, plant."

    Good news like all the Mustang variants we’ll get plenty of fresh Challenger versions. There where plenty of Challenger combinations in the early seventies. More good news, not all 70’s equipment will make a come back. No fake wood self paper around gauge clusters, no vinyl roofs or luggage racks…bad news no Panther Pink either.

    I wouldn't freak out too much about production numbers...

    Flex manufacturing has been mentioned many times. They can adjust production to match needs. I am guessing when demand starts showing, they will make a decision to work with it accordingly.

    Just read on another board that a guy spotted a white Challenger in a parking lot and he spoke to the driver who was a Chrysler engineer. Apparently the car was a NON R/T but had a 5.7L and he said it would be available in September...
