Decisions, decisions.

There will be a new car in front of the Rifstonian Institute in the coming year, and for the last year or so I was convinced it would be the Classic Mustang:



BUT I just saw this:
the 2009 Dodge Challenger.Didn't care much for the Dodge Charger but this is a whole 'nother thing.

Wow, this is going to be a very tough decision. It won't be for awhile but the test driving should be fun!

Yeah, I didn't care for the Charger update either, but this Challenger looks a lot better. Myself, I am torn between a Lear jet, a Mansion, and a Pony of my very own...

I've owned two Challengers. Vanishing Point is right up there with Enter The Dragon for me.

The Mustang looks tougher. Bigger grille, bigger wheels. Looks like it wants to eat Ford Festivas.

Aaron Friday said...

Maybe the wheels aren't bigger. But they look bigger because the Mustang is so tough.

I have a Mustang and I totally love it. I think the Challenger is a cheap rip-off. I drove a Charger for a week (as a rental). I decided the Mustang is far superior. The Mustang has a lot better acceleration from a dead stop. Ok, so I am totally a Mustang girl.

jordan,

yeah 4 door muscles cars don't work for me.

aaron,

yes the Mustang looks beefier but that is the 500 hp Shelby and a GT is all I could do. still beefy but not as much over the Challenger, plus the Challenger does come with 20" rims too.

Yeah, great choices. As we close in on $4.00 per gallon and the obvious need to wean ourselves off of foreign oil, we keep making and buying these dinosaurs. When will people wake up and realize that these are the instruments of our eventual subjugation?? Best wishes. personally your money might be better spent on a Vespa, a bus pass and some arabic lessons...

Mark Reifkind said...

Damn Shook, you never have anything to say on my blog except something negative?Yeah, my buying a car that gets 4 miles/gallon less than what I'm currently driving is going to be the cause of our all speaking arabic?
thanks for the advice but I will spend my money as I wish; it is still America.
