Everything happens for a reason...

So 11/19 wrecked my 88GW got $3500...
12/20 wrecked my caprice got $5800...
Sold off bunch parts from caprice $2500...
Sold my 90GW for $6000

Searched and searched, many deals fell through.
5 months of painful looking for a different vehicle!!
Sooo many flakes and just odd/dumb folks out there.

Word of mouth hooked me up with a car that wasn't really for sale and honestly I don't think the guy really wanted to sell it? He bought it new, has 80k on it.




2007 Dodge Magnum SRT8 with procharger.
The thing is ridiculous/scary/total blast to drive.

Probably paid a little too much but I am one happy camper.
It is another rare-ish unique car and fits me well.
Doubtful it'll ever go down in value, they're scarce and fetch crazy $.

My wife has owned two lower level Magnums and they were a blast. Always loved them, but she keeps wrecking them.

The real question is does the wife, kiddos, and Nacho also approve. Actually it does not matter, it has a pro charger. Even if they all hate, you are still driving a 600hp magnum.

So far the family likes it, that could easily be changed with a WOT session lol.

I would've killed for a Magnum with a Hellcat in it, but this goofy country just isn't into wagons for some dumb reason, and they killed the Magnum off before that combo could ever be built. Love me some blower whine, miss my '04 Cobra.

I'll settle on that new 600hp Audi RS 6 Avant wagon once it depreciates though.

Ooh I like that a lot. Looks like it's in great condition too!

Over here in the UK we actually got a wagon version of the 300C. It's basically a 300C with the rear of a Magnum.

They did an SRT8 of the 300C wagon too. I've always hoped they'd get cheap enough to pick one up, but unfortunately (for me) they've held their value well!

I had a Grand Cherokee SRT with a procharger (and the steering wheel on the wrong side). The guy in the Lotus Elise at the traffic lights couldn t believe he got beaten by a 4x4. That was fun!

Nice...
I did look at a few srt8 cherokees however none were in my price range or had the procharger.
Nice vehicles though!

It is a driver, needs some TLC, but what it lacks in appearance is more than made up mechanically. Engine was refreshed @76k, and transmission was fully rebuilt as well. Paperwork shows $3900 just for trans. and has 3yr/50k warranty even.

Sadly anything hellcat is way too expensive for this dude. However the 6.1 with some $$ could be brought into hellcat power range.
But, it has more than enough power for me as it sits now!
