Any modern cars you admire, or aspire to acquire? in General Discussion Posted May 29 · Edited May 29 by ol' yeller Left out something (see edit history) I just picked up this gem a couple of weeks ago. It is a 2019 Challenger R/T which came with the 5.7 Hemi and 8 speed auto. Will it be collectible, no. Will I likely keep it and pamper it until I can’t drive anymore, possible. I’m hoping it will be a long time as I’m almost 67. As a caveat, I’ve now had 3 “last” cars. I traded in my 2013 Lincoln MKX which was not only a great driving machine, but one of the most reliable cars I’ve ever owned. This car is a throwback to the muscle cars of the late 60’s and 70’s. While there are options for incredible more horsepower, the 5.7 will put you back in your seat when you nail the loud pedal. The exhaust has an amazing burble to it that changes to a growl when revved. It will boil the rear tires with the traction control turned off (not that I done that Hee, Hee). It is a very comfortable car sized for a big guy like me. As a kicker it has continued the beautiful styling of the original Challenger and remained virtually unchanged since its reintroduction in 2008. While visibility isn’t the best, it is better than the Camaro or Mustang although those both hold an edge in power over the 5.7 with the right options. The Challenger has an actual usable back seat unlike other pony cars and a huge trunk. It is a most comfortable driving car for long trips and guaranteed to put a smile on the face of anyone who appreciates a car with muscle. Best of all as I bought it used it was very affordable. Oh, and as of right now, since I purchased it, I’m averaging 22.8 MPG on regular gas. I also have to say that I never thought of myself as a MOPAR guy but this car just might change that.
