2011 Dodge Challenger R/T Classic – Road Test

“Oooh – That is beau-ti-ful…Has that got a HEMI?” “Yep” “Is it YOURS?!” “Unfortunately…. no it isn’t” …And so began my first encounter with people just 10 minutes after picking up the Dodge Challenger R/T from Chrysler. I’m surprised I didn’t cause accidents as people stared, open-mouthed and gob-smacked where ever I went.

2006 Mazda RX-8 GT – Road Test

I looked for it, but I couldn’t find it, Surely there has to be one! No Warning from the Surgeon General ??!! OK. I’ll do it – WARNING – If you suffer from high blood pressure stay away from this car!! If you’re susceptible to heart palpitations – stay away! If you are pregnant and don’t want you’re child to grow up to be a race car driver – stay away!! If you have a history of high cholesterol – don’t even think about asking for a test drive! Now that we’ve got that out of the way.. How does it drive? It’s all right. Nothin’ special … if you drive fighter jets or racecars for a living! For the rest of us it’s the closest we’ll ever get to driving a race car on the street!
