After many years of driving my faithful 1995 Chrysler LeBaron and driving a hand-me-down car gifted to me by my beloved father for a few years, it was time to finally get a new ride. Brandee had been encouraging me to do this for a long time but I kept resisting. I just wasn’t into status of a new car when the car’s I had still worked well.

So on one fine Saturday morning in the summer of 2014, Brandee, my parents and I head out to the dealerships. I had no intention of making a purchase. It was my plan to just do some investigation. Others had different ideas apparently :-).

I was very open-minded in my choice of cars but I knew I wanted a muscle car for sure. I narrowed-down my selection to 3 different manufacturers and models. These were a Chevy Camaro, Ford Mustang or Dodge Charger/Challenger.

In the end I selected the Dodge Charger. Of all the choices this was the one car that had the best combination of sporty and practicality. I like the fact that the Charger is a four-door and, in retrospect, this was a wise choice. I couldn’t have imagined trying to chauffeur business associates in a two-door or lift Jack’s 95-pound body into a two-door.

The Dodge Charger is worthy of 9 out of 10 Steeler Stars.
