2010 Challenger SRT8 Limited Edition

A Thousand Miles And A Slice Of Homemade Pecan Pie

It is with great pleasure to bring you the very first Challenger of the Day post from our "What's Your Challenger Story" submissions. Please enjoy this Challenger story and the journey that Paul went through to get his 2010 Challenger SRT8 Limited Edition.

This is a story written by Paul M.

PART 1 - As you can tell by my email address (ss66chevelle@...com) I have not always been a Mopar guy. Through an inheritance, in 1997 when I was 23 years old I was able to buy a 1966 Chevelle Super Sport. The Chevelle was a numbers matching, unrestored survivor car. At 23 years old I felt like I was on top of the world! Then, in 2008 when I first saw the retro Challenger everything changed. While walking through the car show I was at I very excitedly told my wife that I loved that car and would one day own one. Fast forward seven years...

I finally got up the courage and told my wife that I wanted to sell my Chevelle and buy a Challenger. She told me absolutely not and said that I was CRAZY!! Finally, after a few months of persuasion she agreed saying that I could do what I wanted to do... That's all I needed to hear.

PART 2 - Once I was given the OK to sell the Chevelle and buy a Challenger I began my quest. After several weeks of scouring the internet and all of the Chevy and Mopar sites I finally was able to find a buyer for my Chevelle and at the same time found a Challenger to purchase. Now all I had to do was figure out how to sell the Chevelle get the money and then purchase the Challenger with that same money. It was a task but it all worked out and I got it done! The final challenge for this entire quest was getting to Alabama to pick up my car!! So, my best friend drove me to the airport, I jumped on a plane, and was picked up by the current owner of the Challenger. Ronnie then picked me up at the airport and drove me 2 hours back to his house. Once I saw the Challenger, I am immediately knew that I had made the right choice. I was in love.

So, after a piece of homemade pecan pie, I jumped in my new car and proceeded to drive 1000+ miles home! Not only did I get to enjoy my Chevelle for 18 years, I have purchased a new car and I have also made a great friend in the process. Me and Ronnie continue to stay in touch ... Exchanging pictures of our cars and family.

MB White Toyman DS

This Matchbox Dodge Challenger White Toyman is a blast from the past. The base has 1975 on it and I think the 'standard' yellow Toyman was released in the eighties. This rare white version was a mystery to me for a long time and I often see it referred to as 'The elusive rare white Toyman'. That said there are much rarer versions of this awesome casting. It was released in 1992 as part of s 30 pack set available to Sam's Club members only. I...

Maisto 1970 Challenger RT DS

There's something special about every Dodge Challenger and there's something extra special about any gold Challenger. The color reminds me of the original 1970 Dodge Challengers and when I look at it I think about those old pictures, commercials and ads. A few Gold 1970 Challengers are still around today too! This Gold paint has the same classic look and takes you back in time.

With chrome bumpers, rear trim and chrome front grille...
