Chris is right, most Viper owners dont care about the stereo setup. I'd be one of the few who do. But like I state din a previous post, I would replace ANY stock stereo system because frankly they ALL suck, IMO of course. They are just like NSX people, they could most probably care less what's on the radio over just having fun in their mid engine RWD exotic. MY friend's dad is one of the few I know who replaced the stock radio in his heavily modded 93 NSX (pretty good stealth setup too).

I actually LIKE teh new Charger. Perfect modern American performance sedan. And I find the body lines on it quite aggressive, especially the angry eyes and the rear quarter panel kickup.

oh i dunno...the new charger certainly isn't as exciting of a car to behold as the prototype that dodge paraded around a few years ago, but the upcoming SRT/8 version is actually quite a handsome car, imho.

having said that, i haven't ever actually seen one up close, let alone drive one, so i can't really say for sure how i feel about it.

well, I like the new Charger....for what it is, which is a good-looking and fast family sedan. although, I would still prefer something like the 99 concept. mm, thats pure awesomeness.

The new charger, quite frankly, looks like poo. My anus could design a better car than that... oh well, they're pretty far down in the food chain compared to what I can afford anyways...hehe

I will dance on my head the day you can afford a car as nice as the new charger.

I'm not a fan of the new Charger. I'm not that much of a Mopar guy really though...

It looks too much like an anorexic truck/SUV to me.

The fact that you don't like it puts it at the top of the list of cars TO like.

How the f8ck do you get that? It's not even a station wagon OR a pickup.

Apparently you missed out on the design of cars for the decades of oh, 1920-1990.

It, like the 300C, is a design that hearkens back to the days of American sedans having American design, not some watered down, generic jellybean. And it shares ZERO lines with a truck.

So a change in a couple cutlines woudl change teh front or rear OR roofline? I think not. Would a change in a couple cutlines change teh way it performs

Are the Evo and STi, and AMG E55, BMW M5, etc crap for having 4 doors? Modern performance cars can easily have 4 doors.

Wellllll.......2-door Civics and Accords usually look alot better than their 4-door counterparts, even before they started giveing different rear ends to each one

I don't know about that...

The pre-98 Accords (somewhere around that time for civics too) the cars were both built from the same mold, but the problem is both of them still had the same roofline as the four door. The car was designed to look good as a four door but they decided to make a two door version of it. Car and Driver noted that the 1994 two door Accord "while having a greater sense of structural soundness than the four door, seems awkward, as if the back doors were cut off as an afterthought" or something along those lines...

Honestly I don't know why everyone has such a problem with four door sports cars, Mercedes Benz and BMW have been doing it for years...
