    When you are driving, have you noticed the almost absence of 2008-2014 Challenger models on the road? It is surprising because 280,874 were built.

    Is this just because many reached their useful life because of high mileage, or are many of these garage queens?

    I see '14 and '15 and up.but hardly ever see '08 to '13 in Atlanta area.Don't remember last time I saw an '08.You will see more Challengers and that other big Chrysler300 they used to make when getting close into town

    I am still on the road with my 2009 SRT, in New Jersey.

    I'm partial to the 08-14 front and particularly rear styling and like Tom see far more post 14 models on the road and have no idea why. I drive it all year round near Vancouver, Canada. DSC_4097.JPG DSC_4099.JPG

    My purple 2010 is still on the road, but it looks very different than @Cloverdale ’s from the front and back.

    My 2011 SRT8 Green With Envy is in my collection and on the road. It is a low mileage car but I try to drive at least once per month. I am partial to the front and rear styling and the color which has not been available before or after 2011. I love the Green With Envy and felt the same way about it when it was used on the Dodge Viper and called Snake Skin Green!

    I am in agreement with Cloverdale: the front/rear styling on pre-2015 Challenger is *so* much better looking. I especially don't like the 2015+ Rasin Bran hood. It looks stupid with the openings so far forward.

    My 2012 R/T is my usual daily driver.
