    Challenger sighting

    I didn't personally see it but I got a call on Sunday 3/2 from my brother and he claims to see a new Challenger heading north on RT 23 north of Columbus Oh. After that he gets a call from his buddy that is ahead of him( They were both headed south on 23) making the same claim so being witnessed by two makes me believe plus he is a car guy and knows the diff. Must have been a mule being road tested.

    I will be on the lookout...I bet Nelson AG here in town (the dodge/lambo dealer) will have one soon if they don't have one lined up already, can't wait to see one in person.

    Not wortless it is interesting information and seeing a car pass the other way dosent exactly make it easy to get a photo. I resent being called a liar.

    Easy, he didn't call you a liar. That is just a common joke around here to put up the "TTIWWP" smiley when someone talks about seeing or having something without putting up pics. It was just a joke.

    Nah, it's not a mule, not at this point in the development. It's more than likely a pre-production model. It's all Challenger, except it's hand built at the Chrysler tech centre. They dole those out to testers to work out the bugs. Then most likely they get crash tested or scrapped.
    You wouldn't want one of those cars. Although they might run just fine the fit and finish of those pre-production cars is usually awful.

    At this point, they are initial production units

    Very likely built in Brampton Assembly, since they've already built a number of them... Including with a stick. Oops. have to wipe up the drool just thinking about it.
