No Challenge Finding Challengers
Did you miss out on the chance to reserve a Challenger SRT-8 during the pre-production feeding frenzy? Don't worry– they're still available. It turns out the "sold out" production run wasn't. While many of the first 6.4k built were pre-sold, "a quarter of the cars were set aside for dealer orders." The Detroit News reports they're available at some dealers; in fact, one Michigan dealer has nineteen of them for sale. Jim Simpson, sales manager at Dick Huvaere's Richmond Chrysler Jeep Dodge, said "I wish I had 50 of them." So far he's sold one; he currently has two on the lot with 17 more expected later this month. A quick scan of inventory at Dodge dealers in the metro Atlanta area turned up five on dealer lots. So if you're interested, you might be able to find one in your area too. Or you can wait a few months until dealers have milked the "market price adjustment" and they're willing to talk turkey (so to speak) to get them off their lots.
