American Muscle

Oh yes, I have a case of automotive envy going on right now. My boy T-Rev got himself a new toy last week, and it is beyond cool. He sent along a pic or two for me to lust over.

In his own words:

Ms. Blue is a fully option loaded 2009 Dodge Challenger R/T model 27J, with Deep Water Blue Pearl paint, a 5.7L V8 Hemi MDS VCT engine which puts out 375 hp and 404 lb.-ft. of torque. I went with the 5-speed automatic transmission for my sheer laziness and estimated increase in fuel efficiency. Inside she is covered in sexy black and gray two-tone leather interior with heated front seats, a Boston Acoustics six speaker system with 276 watt amplifier (that sounds like a hurricane waiting to happen, it is truly a rockin' system for a factory install), Sirius Satellite Radio, GPS navigation, a built in 30GB hard drive for instant CD rip and download, and iPod direct control integration.

She sits on 20-inch chrome clad aluminum wheels with 245/45VR20 BSW All Season Performance Tires that fill out the wheel wells, and because the car's proportions are so substantial, they have a just-right look. The muscular rear haunches almost pulsate with power, and when you walk around back, you see a rear fascia that's a nice production translation of the concept car from 2006. She also sports a pair of squared-off exhaust tips below the rear bumper. The other little nasty details? Old-school fuel-filler lid, the matte chin spoiler, the HEMI badges on the hood's power bulge, the four round headlamps – it's all good. Ms. Blue is an all-you-can-eat buffet of visual comfort food.

She is one saucy, bitchin' ride and certainly not a regrettable purchase!

Damn. That is some kinda beautiful car.
