Over there, that'll whip heads around faster than a new AM Vanquish. Beautiful car.

I kind of agree.... especially given out petrol now costs close to 1.30GBP per litre!

But it was a beauty.... and I doubt that ill see another anytime soon!

Certainly is a pretty car. My first thought was Richard Hammond, but I don't think he has a Charger.

A few seasons ago, TopGear did a segment about owning a Charger in the UK (at least I'm pretty sure it was a Charger). I wonder if this is the same car?

Ah! Thanks for digging that up, Laminar. Different car. I'm kind of torn on which one I like more. I'm a sucker for black cars, and the hood pins are a nice touch. On the other hand, Hammond's lime-green car reminds me of the Hot Wheels I used to play with back then. Decisions, decisions...
