    Welcome to the neighborhood!

    I was a Pony-ack guy for a long time .... '73 Formula 350, '77 Trans Am, '93 Grand Prix Special Edition, '99 Grand Prix GTP, and an '05 GTO.

    And, sandwiched between an '11 Challenger R/T Classic and my current '15 Challenger SRT; I had a '16 Chevrolet SS.

    You'll find lots of helpful guys in the Mopar community.

    I liked all the big auto guys going kind of old school with their body styles in the recent years. That lead to my wife and I driving all three, Mustang,Camaro, and Challenger. I was basically good with any of the three, and leaned towards the Mustang because that thing is FAST!
    My wife liked the look of the Challenger and it's plain interior so we went with that.

    Was a last minute change of plans, interesting story that covers 3 months but headed to the great state of Alabama to get this 2013 Redline RT instead of the burnt Orange 2011.

    Well it's home. Kinda on the fence about the huge engine in cover. Any threads here on removing it? Hope that motor is sexy under there lol.

    Oh, it’s not sexy. Few modern engines are. You can get 345 valve cover covers like the SRT covers if you don’t want the big 5.7 cover

    Loo king at valve covers now. Got a friend that is pretty good with his metal work. Wish I could find a basic drawing with measurements to make a set.
