    Like the title says. I'll start

    I got mine cause when I had my 2000 lightning (bone stock) i went to the track one night an i was at the tree and a neon lined up and i just lol haha its a neon and guess what we went i had him on the 60' time and that was it and killed me and he was stock so i got pissed and I talked to the wife and said im getting a srt4 cause i got wooped and plus i got real tired of paying $60-$70 to fill my tank of gas and only getting 235 miles per tank so i did a serch on it and got a 05 SRT-4 OB new plus i got a really good deal even on the trade-in and im still happy with it even being 2 years now

    I always wanted a real muscle car and wasn't really happy with the looks of the R/T Charger. The R/T test drive was impressive, but knowing there was a "better" version was going to haunt me. So I asked for the SRT and sure enough there was a fully loaded Black one on a trailer with no set destination. Supposedly the first in Northern California. Two years later (as of the 15th) I had no idea I'd be going to drag strips and world class road course tracks or doing bolt-on mods. Its been love ever since. :)

    I have been a loyal Ford freak for as long as I can remember. Then my friend Sean purchased an 05 ACR, after getting a ride in it I knew I needed on. 1 month later I found my 04 with 15k on it bone stock.

    Easy...
    It was Simply the Right Thing to do.
    I wanted a car that looked Super Rough and Tough.
    I wanted to have the best car in Street Racing Technology.

    Did the Rad cap mod from an RT (got it before the SRTs were available). I liked it, but I was looking at all the money I would need to put in to get it up to SRT performance and looks. I found a 3 month old used one for the right price and went with it.

    Maureen wanted "HER" vehicle to be the SRT10...

    A few months after she got the 10, I WANTED a 10. lol Went to my dealer to look at a red 10. In comes Maureen... She states, "WE already have a 2 door truck, WE do not need another!" (Of course she is absolutely CORRECT!) So I kept Eye Balling the Blue R/T Charger sittin on 20's. Me and my Sales Manager were discussing the SRT8 Chargers and he said they have one ordered, but will not be in until late Feb 06 to early March 06 (This was Nov 05). :( Sooooo I got the R/T. great car. December 21st rolls around and my Sales Manager calls me to inform me that the SRT8 Charger JUST pulled in on the truck. SWEEEEEEEET!

    I get there in under 5 minutes (lol good thing I live 10 blocks away). The SRT8 was being unloaded while I watched. Man, what a BEAUTY I thought to myself. I call Maureen and tell her about it. About an hour later, Maureen leaves work and comes to the Dealership to take a look see. She likes it alot as well. Problem is I am too upside down on the R/T to trade in. hmmmmm.

    The 22nd, Maureen calls me from work and says, "If you want it, BUY it." Woo Hoo. After we signed ALL the finance papers, Maureen looks at me and says, "Merry Christmas baby, I love you"...

    My wife is the BEST!
