Ever since I got my Dodge Charger I had a plan to design her. It started off just a black and white theme, but soon after I thought that was boring and common.
Buying a new car is a major rite of passage for many young adults in North America.
It was a stormy day in West Texas in the outskirts of Odessa and I was driving around in my 2010 Dodge Challenger SRT8. Normally I would catch myself driving around for fun always capturing great pictures of my car with beautiful sunset's in the background.
Well this day happened to be very cloudy and dark with no sunset visible but there was a big storm rolling in so I knew I had to capture a few pictures with those dark mean clouds.
In 1969 I graduated from an Engineering College. A lot us purchased a new car upon graduation and Muscle Cars were flying off dealer lots. I saw a bright blue '69 Roadrunner, 383, white interior and Hurst 4 speed. I test drove it and had to have it. I paid around $2500 for it and the wife didn't drive at all. We have had Mopars for the last 30 consecutive years.
I bought my first car from Shively Motors in 2010 and got a great deal on a beautiful black Dodge Charger for my son. While I was there, I scoped out the Challengers, but wasn’t quite ready to buy then. In February of 2013 I found myself looking for a muscle car. Checked out several lots and was getting serious about a 5.0 liter Mustang when I decided to stop by Shively on a whim.
Dodge does a fantastic job at styling their vehicles. After several attempts to get me to own something other than a Dodge my husband finally gave up. He would offer to buy me a new Chevy or GMC and I would refuse them because I loved my truck. When Dodge brought the Challenger back we both fell in love with the design. I remember standing in a parking lot when I seen my 1st one in person. It was a 2008 Dodge Challenger SRT8. It was black on black and absolutely stunning! I remember standing there saying, “Lord, I would love to have a black on black Challenger.”
Being a GM fanatic for many years I had put Mopar aside. My '99 TA was my baby and I swore I would keep it forever. In 2007 I had seen my first headline of Chrysler bringing the Challenger back with focus on the retro styling. It grabbed my attention from the start, but I kept my hard headed mind on my TA.
In March of 2014 I finally decided to take a closer upfront look at the Dodge Challenger and styles they provide.

One rare bird right here folks, it's a 2012 3.6L Dodge Challenger with 440 RWHP.
We have had our VW e-Golf for just over a month now and covered 2000 trouble-free miles. I would say the charging network in the UK is the weakest point. Just now, although, it is improving. Most motorway services have CCS "fast chargers" which have enabled us to do a round trip to Scotland (about 600 miles) although we came across several charge points that were out of service or faulty.
