Dodge put up a new Flash Site for the 2006 Charger...pretty cool. Been
looking around a little bit and can finally figure out the names for all
the colors... they also have a cool part under power that takes apart the
engine. Flash sites are so much better than freakin static sites, good
Charger Unleashed Site (http://www.dodge.com/charger/)
I am liking the R/T more these days though the SRT-8 still maintains the best style.
Pretty cool, I spent half an hour to try and get as much money for the Charger as possible, up to $36,000.
Coupe - Maybe in a while. But the four door charger is pretty mean IMO,
take the SRT-8, one awesome looking car anyway you look at it. Especially
in black on the models page...sweeet!
You check out the induction unit video? Is that all done in Flash, its really cool animation the way the buildings collapse. And a shocker, the music is actually pretty good.
chris_knows - you must be playing around on the build a charger site...or is that something else in the flash site I missed?
No, I went to Ready, Set, Unleash, and then to Build and Price at the top of the pop-up...I do it on all car sites when I have nothing else to do...
Have you seen the new Charger commercials running during the Pistons-Spurs NBA finals?
Here is the video from the Finals where the Charger Drag Races if you
haven't seen it:

Stupidest commercial ever. Yeah, a Charger is gonna beat a car that runs 4s
The symbolism my friend. The charger has the power and the speed of a
muscle car yet has the practicality for a common man that drinks coffee and
pays tolls. Balance. Yin and Yang. Sun and Moon.
ps. That sig video is hilarious. Made my whole office crack up.
And the weight of the Oprah Winfrey show's studio on Weight Loss makeover week.
That flash thing is pretty cool.
Yeah, keep on going back and pricing chargers like chris_knows. And the animated video is really cool.
That flash thing has got so much money and time put into it. I be t some dude got **** loads of mulah to make it too! Not bad, but I still think Dodge could have made the car look more like it's ancestors! :cussing:
Regardless of price, the site is really cool. Its nice to be able to get
close to a car if you can't actually go to it and see it in person. And
the pricing is nice to have.
Has anyone driven the dodge autostick? It is available with the Charger, how do you like it?
not quite yet - planning on taking one out for a rip soon :)
I am trying to track down pictures of the autostick. It is simply the + 1 controls for shifting up and down gears, right? Does tha magnum have the same option?
Found this the game while playing with the Induction download program with
Race the all-new production 2006 Dodge Charger or NASCAR® NEXTEL Cup series Chargers — including Kasey Kahne's #9 or Jeremy Mayfield's #19 cars in EA SPORTS™ NASCAR® SimRacing™ — Dodge Charger Demo.
Charger Nascar SimRacing Game Page (http://www.dodge.com/games/nascar_sim_racing.html)
Its downloading as we speak.
First: You are my hero for finding this.
Secondly, and off topic: I'm back from vacation.
Heh. I was definitely psyched to find it. THat induction unit that you
can download through the flash program has a lot of hidden goodies in it.
Check it out.
I havne't played it yet but its sitting on my desktop. I might get to it during lunch if I have time.
That isn't advertising, it doesn't make you join anything :laughing:
where did you go for vacation?
first few days were spent at duck mountain provincal park, relaxing and
fishing(Caught several Pickerel(great eating!), and a hell of a tan).
next few days were spent at the Craven Country Jamboree (CCJ (http://www.cravencountryjamboree.com/)), where I was "working" - I drove around all day selling water(easiest job ever) - got VIP access, met Tim McGraw, Brad Paisley, Lonestar, George Canyon, Poverty Plainsmen....great guys, they are all the same as me....except they make a hell of a lot more money, and they can sing better.....lol...
also saw a lot of hotties out there :thumbs:
Sounds like you had fun, Welcome back :thumbs:
Good 'ol Canada, good musicians (not a country music fan myself) and a bunch oh 'hotties' :mrgreen:
Pickerel? Eatin them up? How you cook pickerel? I've never thought baout
keeping them yet.
I went fishing in northern maryland with my bro and pulled out this enormous pickerel, a good 3 - 3.5 feet of chunky meat (me not good at weight estimates) but it was a wild one and the lure was caught way down in his mouth. Just so happens that the ranger thought it was a good time to come check our permits as we were fighting to get this guy back in the water. Aha, memories, those guys fight like crazy.
So as far as that game goes, I would be really sad if that was my charger. I was all over the place. Car must have been destroyed, but a lot of fun doing it. You find a way to switch the view? I want to see it in motion from the outside.
over a campfire - little lemon pepper + butter, wrapped in tinfoil. damned
my skills at that game are about as good as yours lol
oh and by hotties i meant titties....
I guess it would be good for me to learn to filet a fish first...heh. But
I have always wanted to catch something nad then cook it right up. My
brother did that once with a catfish out of a somewhat questionable lake in
jersey. Heh, tasted like crap.
I just can't get a handle on that charger. Everytime I approach a turn I cry a little for wrecking a beautiful vehicle :doh: .
Do you know how they are selling so far? The June stats must be around somewhere, right?
Chargers are at 6,195 YTD through June 2005

Ya Boothe, i've tried the game and its too 'squirrely'. I was surprised when last week i saw a new Charger driving around here, and it was a woman driver :laughing:
That is pretty good with the limited offerings. What you guys think?
Think it was just a lot of huff-and-puff about the doors and name?
A bit squirley for sure. Its almost more fun just to ride around and crash into things and spin out. Biggest wreck wins.. :laughing: I need to go play some more and see what weird things you can do.
EDIT: Wow my spelling is horrible.
So I was looking into this show because TV sucks right now and I saw a
trailer for it before a movie I saw in the theater. Looks like good old
senseless violence and the like which i can veg out too. But I came across
this article that the charger is going to be in a bunch of the episodes.
CRIMINALS BEWARE! THEY CAN JUMP WALLS!
