Re: 2006 general lee

they look like a 4 door 05 mustang. for that price i'd get a shelby gt 500 when it comes out next summer. the gto's looks disappoint as well, all that hp in a car that could easily have been the new grand am body style

Re: 2006 general lee

I really like the car that is called the charger, but I don't think they should have called it a charger. But I do like the car.

Re: 2006 general lee

im sorry, but that thing is ****ing ugly.

maybe if they used the original concept charger and did the General Lee scheme it would look badass, but that charger in itself is ugly.

Re: 2006 general lee

The new charger (seen it on the street) looks like a magnum from the front, but it's not like a station wagon in the back.

it's lame.

Dodge needs to make up a new name for that.. like the Magnum "sport"

it'd be like if Ford stopped making Mustangs back in the 60's and then brought it out again *NOT THE CAR BUT THE NAME!* and they made it look horribly crappy.

That just ruins the name of the car, even if it isn't intentional.

Re: 2006 general lee

The Dodge Magnum Sedan...I mean Charger...or is a 300 series...or is it...whatever it is, is ugly. It is a slap in the face to the true chargers. The challenger that is rumored to be coming out in a few years looks good now, but I am sure it too will be a magnum/charger/300 series cross breed and just have 2 doors instead of 4.

The new charger...that is your brain on drugs.

Re: 2006 general lee

I like how they are not even selling it until when the movie comes out...right now they are just taking offers. The official auction doesn't start until tomorrow night. I guess they need to see if anyone will pay that kind of money for some vinyl slapped on a car.

Re: 2006 general lee

I absolutely cannot stand the new "chargers". All they freaking did was bring back the nameplate, shoved it on a 300c platform and called it done. Hideous IMO

Re: 2006 general lee

I think theyre pretty sweet. Of course dodge is gonna come back and call it a charger. IT WILL SELL THE CAR!!! Dodge is smart about it, if that thing wasnt called a charger they wouldnt even come close to competing with the mustang and the new "camaro" thats coming out sometime soon. Dodge was smart on this one, and I think the car looks really nice.

And of course theyre not gonna look like the old ones, the old ones are a 20+ year old design. Times change, styling changes, etc etc. You think if ford stopped making the mustang back in 68-70 then came back with the fox in the early 90s people would like it? HELL NO. Its just something that people are gonna have to realize. Its not a car thats had multiple generations. Theyre starting a NEW generation by bringing it back. Its sweet IMO.

(I have the same feelings about the GTO as well)

I tell you why because 425 HP Hemi 6.1 V8 beast will kill a Charger of the day and look sweet to me. Our mustangs 79-04 were shoved on a Ford Fairmont frame abd the Mustang II was shoved on a Pinto frame. Boy thoses names bring excitement to my ears

Everything is on some sort of other chassis. Hell the new 300 is on a M/Benz Chassis.

Re: 2006 general lee

But damnit dodge needs to get rid of this hemi crap. I'm completely sick of it. All they do is build an engine, throw their copywrited "hemi" name on it and go. I personally will never own a "hemi" or what they make ppl think is a hemi. The freaking 5.4 SOHC Ford is more of a hemi than these new dodge things. That's my problem with dodge, they are selling the hemi nameplate, not cars and trucks. I'm sorry, just not a new dodge person, not trying to get on anyone's bad side. Everyone I know that has bought a new dodge vehicle has had nothing but problems, from rams to minivans, every one. That's my problem with dodge. To each his own, the Mopar craze and hemi craze just isn't for me.

what a goofy rant!!! The Dodge hemi is a hemi What the hell are you talking about????? Please let me know when Ford ever gets 425 HP out of the 4.6 or 5.4 N/A !!!! 385 HP out of a 5.4 2000 Cobra R is as close as it gets from the factory

Hemi is just the type of heads that are on the engine, if I recall right it is a semi hemispherical combustion chamber. Ford built a Hemi Engine back in the late 60s, the 429 Hemi Mustang, I always heard it was a dog unless built up considerably.
