Anyone here a fan of Mopar? Or maybe even have one?

I was a Mopar or no car kind of guy until, well, I bought an E90

We had a driveway full of Mopar vehicles until a few months ago. All that I have left now is the Mighty Dodge, which I have no plan to give up:



Of course, true Mopar fans do not like the 5.9 Cummins (with a 6-speed manual) being considered a Mopar, but whatever.....

First car I ever bought for myself with my own money was a 69 Dodge Charger factory 383 car. Loved that damn car - so much fun. Sold it for what I bought it for - $1,100. Can you imagine if I had that today what it would be worth? That would have been maybe 1988-89.

I had a good buddy who's father was a mopar nut and only NICE ones. Had 4 sheds built to house them all. Plum Crazy factory 6 pack challenger - mint. Factory Road Runner Hemi car mint. 69 Dodge Charger factory 383 car with a factory power moon roof - never saw another one in person in my life. So many nice old Mopars - it was like candy land to walk through there.

That would be a site to see, I never even knew a moon roof was an option on B Body chargers

My Dad and I are fixing up his old 70 Chargers, so much body work

Absolutely.

Here is my '97 that I still have. It's been parked for 15 years now, and has 67,000 miles.



And here is my 2004 that I regretfully sold after 10 years of ownership. Most solid and trouble free vehicle I have ever owned. Absolutely bulletproof.

I’ve had a ton of Jeeps, still have Jeeps, and am picking up another Jeep this weekend if it gets delivered from the plant as scheduled. I dig ‘em.

But does it have splitter guards?

Can't go wrong with an R/T as a grocery getter

No, it doesnt. LOL

Fits a hell of a lot more groceries than my M2, and being a manual, its pretty fun to drive as well.

Thought I had better pictures, but I guess this is all I had on the phone of my XJ. Playing musical cars to get two in the one car garage before the hurricane that never actually hit.

Much better than the camaro! It's actually not too bad, the blind spot detectors are phenomenal anyways, as is the reverse camera sensors. Much better than my M2.

That's the most odd shaped garage I've ever seen

Before I bought the E90 I was about to pull the plug on an old YJ, opted out of that because I couldn't stand the square headlights and the conversion kits were too small lol

I rent cars almost weekly for work, and 90% of the time Iíll grab a Charger or Challenger. Fantastic cars. Big, solid and just the right amount of obnoxiousness.

I get more thumbs up in the Challenger than any vehicle I have ever owned.
