Burrito Supreme!
Well, I'm going to do what I thought I would never do - put the silver bitch up for sale. This last transmission go around was the final straw. Just driving down the road and the sounds came on.....thats it, I'm done.

I considered swapping my speed stuff into another 08-10 Challenger. I looked at 2 very seriously including test drives and negotiations. At the end of the day I came to terms with what it was going to cost me to swap my stuff over, build up the auto trans, was going to leave me with a heavily modified 9 -10 year old car. For a bit more (in the scheme of what I have spent on these cars) I could get myself into a stock Hellcat, that would also be significantly newer and have the balance of a warranty - which I think we all know is smart when it comes to me and cars Big Grin

So I started looking at the cats.....and had started to narrow it down. I came across the Black Hellcat I posted earlier in the other thread. It was ok, but it was too much black for me and it just felt used and abused - but it was cheap for a cat. Something just wasn't right.....So I kept looking and came across a 2016 Cat with only 1200 miles. The price was the cheapest I have seen for a 2016 and was within the budget - so I pulled the trigger today.

Here she is:

I will say this. The cat doesn't pull as hard, but very differently than my silver car. Not as violent, much smoother and refined.

So what's next? I need to get the Silver Girl squared away. Thanks to Phil I have a transmission on the way to Erik/BFNY to get her back and running. The for sale posts will be going up soon.

Once she is sold, it will be time to get a drive shaft and a set of gears in the cat. The main thing is to keep having fun and being able to enjoy driving my car rather than being afraid of what is going to break next. Looking forward to the new chapter!

Nice... I kinda went thru the same thing when I sold my 10 6 speed. Car was fun to drive but my 17 Scat Pack Charger 8 speed is a blast to drive.
