My New Baby :)

Monday night, we picked up my new baby.....a 2006 Dodge Charger Daytona R/T :) I was trying to hold out for the new Challengers to be released, but since our lease was almost up on the Durango & they just started offering a nice rebate on the Chargers, we decided to get one of those instead. I used to own a Challenger way back when, but never had a Charger before, so I'm happy that I decided to get one. You can click on each image to enlarge.

Here is it at the dealership, all clean & shiny. And of course, it has a Hemi :) Since gas prices are finally going down, I gotta have my Hemi's :) I've never owned a red car before either, but I hope what they say about red cars getting more tickets isn't true! Guess we'll see :)

The Daytonas are limited editions with the TorRed red ones being the most limited.....only 2,000 TorRed ones were made whereas there are 4,000 Top Banana yellow & 4,000 Go ManGo orange ones. So that was another deciding factor of getting the red one.

Here is my Navigation system with Sirius satellite radio. I never used the Sirius in the Durango, but I get the first year of service free in the Charger & I'm really loving it! Jim also has Sirius in his Ram truck & it was really nice to have when we went to PA in August.....didn't have to keep searching for stations all the time. I also like the heater/air conditioner....it has dual controls so that the driver & passenger can set their own temperatures. No more freezing when Jim has the A/C too low!

Here's a picture of the inside. I love the red accents & stitching on the seats! And the seats are so comfy! Now I just have to get used to sitting on the ground instead of up in the air like I did with the Durango :) But trust me, I'm getting used to it FAST!

Here's a close-up of the headrest. Love how the Daytona is embroidered into it! Be on the lookout for a scrapbook layout about my new baby soon :) That is, if I can stop driving it long enough to sit & scrapbook, hehe.

Well there you have it.....my new baby. Wanna go for a ride? :)
