Because my last topic sort of got derailed into a vehicle comparison, I thought it would be appropriate to start this one. What do you haul your gear in? I just bought this yesterday, I took it for a spin from the carlot and carefully "test drove" an equipment haul in, haul out. Perfectly fits my PJB head, two cabs, Dingwall, stand and gear bag with the seats folded down. It wasn't my first choice of colors, but the mileage, manual transmission and price was the only thing that fit the bill within 500 miles of where I live. I was looking for a Dodge Magnum, but all the ones in my price range were base models, I wanted the SRT8 of course, but they were more car than I had in savings. I guess the bright side is with the savings I kept by buying the HHR, I'm a little closer to that next Dingwall! Post 'em if you got 'em, lets see what you drive to the gig!

The Magnum wagon couldn't hack it, huh? Lookin' good, is it the SRT-8? You seem to be a Mopar man. Julia, I believe you have the distinction of being the first lady on the forum (that I'm aware of anyway, if I'm missing something someone please fill me in). Welcome to forum, and don't forget to post pictures in the "Show your Dingwall" thread, or the recently popular "Show your pets" thread in the "Off Topic" section.

[quote="TheGrandEnigma":27mgp23n]The Magnum wagon couldn't hack it, huh? Lookin' good, is it the SRT-8? You seem to be a Mopar man.[/quote:27mgp23n] The only thing wrong with the Magnum was the 180,000 trouble-free miles it had racked up. There was nothing wrong with it, but since I work out of my car my dear wife wanted me to get a new one because of the high miles. First she wanted me to get a Z3. Now this. What a woman. :o :) I have always loved Mopars. I drove a black '72 Duster in high school. This new Challenger is a very cool car, a real head-turner. Nobody is getting thumbs up over their new Camaro or Mustang :wink:. It's only a V6, though, the same drivetrain as the Magnum, really same car with 4 inches cut out of the wheelbase and new sheetmetal. Face it, a powerful V8 like the SRT, even the Hemi, is kind of dumb. So what that you can beat everybody to the next redlight. I'm older, and, I'd like to think, a little wiser. I try to drive like an old lady. That's the coolest thing you can do in a cool car. Everybody looks when you drive 5mph under the limit. I really all boils down to how the sheet metal is bent, not how fast it goes. I'm hoping for a 180K out of this one, too. Mark
