Charger R/T Daytona sighting

Well for the first time I got to see the new Charger R/T Daytona on the road. I'm not a big fan of the car but it has a mean presence!!! The new front grille looks good especially with the R/T badging and black hood stripes. But what I can't get over is the back I think they fumbled the styling of the rear, the spolier looks tacked on and just doesn't flow well with the rest. This one was orange, by the way. Nice car!

I haven't seen a R/T on the road yet, but I've seen a '05 regular charger painted up like the general lee, made me look twice. I think it's a pretty cool car though, I like the looks of it, maybe a two door version would be neat

I have seen one as well....a 70 year old man was driving it!!!!! I gotta admit I hated the way it looked in pictures but it really does look nice in person. Still no where near the beast they could have made it.

I second the 2 door. I think it looks good but the black on the rear end dosn't look quite right. A ganeral lee would be cool, yea I know, i live in the sticks.

I've seen quite a few. They look ok, just wish they appealed more to the younger audience. All I see is old people driving them.

I see a Charger R/T everytime I walk out into the driveway! lol, of course, mine is almost 37 years old . . .

I hated the new four-doors when I first saw the pics, but they DO look pretty sweet in person. Still not living up to the potential, but . . . .

There is talk that Dodge may do a two-door in '07 or '08, possibly resurrecting the "Challenger" nameplate. We can keep our fingers crossed, in the mean-time

I saw one in St. Paul. I agree that it's very nice, but the spoiler is pretty tacky. And a big to Dodge for not even offering a manual.

The dealer in Hanover had one on the lot a few days back, already gone. I stopped and looked at it though. I liked most of it. The body lines on the side are a little off to me.

I saw a yellow one in my town a while back, and yeah they look alot better in person. That "Hemi" doesnt sound to bad either.
oh im crossing my fingers too, i cant wait to see what they come up with. My dad had one way back....and even though i was really really young like probably 3 or 4 lol, i still enjoyed being it that thing, it wasnt an R/T though. Hopfully it will look something like this concept pick i found.
