Just bought a used Challenger Shaker R/T. Saw it on auto trader and couldn't resist. My favorite color (B5 blue) and the shaker hood with a six speed manual tranny and 7,500 miles. Unbelievably, it got 26 mpg on a road trip to WV on 89 octane with a little stop and go mixed in. It gets virtually the same mileage as my 2010 V-6 with the 5 speed automatic.

I love the color. I hate how a front plate is required in VA.

This has the "super track pack" with the 1/2" lower suspension, optional brake pads, etc. It really handles well for something its size. I would say on par with my wife's 2010 Mustang GT.

Nice!!!!!!!!!!!
I had a 2009 Hemi orange one I bought new
I used 87 in my RT and got great gas mileage as well.
Loved the car but when they first came out they brought on too much negative attention
Every middle aged drunk stopped and talked to you about them... lol
Enjoy it!!!!!!!!

Are you still going to sell the 00 Mustang GT? I remember you mentioning fixing it up.

Wow, FCA just keeps making those things. I see new cop cars on that body, and see new ones with consumers all the time. That design has legs!
Anybody know when it will cease production? 300/Charger/Magnum on the platform was a Mercedies (Dieter Zetsche) creation, then Challenger came along a couple of years later. Thats 13 model years now.
