How I fell in love with the new Challenger
I have a work friend who is Mopar-or-no-car; we were in LA traveling, eating at a Chinese restaurant. His fortune said “Quit procrastinating, buy that car and take a trip today”. To show me what it meant, we walked down the street from the restaurant to the Dodge dealer. They had four Challenger SRT8s in the lot. It was instant infatuation. A real live brand new muscle car was there in front of me. I never thought I would see that again in my lifetime.
Back at work, I looked up information on the 2010 models and found that PCP was an optional color. The infatuation turned to love. I couldn’t find any within 500 miles, so I went with a broker who found one in Illinois.
With a rebate, $2k mopar bucks, and no down payment–how could anyone say no?
I’m driving it today. And that $860 payment only serves to remind me every month how luck I am to live in this society.
And that Chinese fortune that started it all? Turns out that was really my fortune! The cookies just got swapped.
