Default Friday night ride to dinner

I can't get enough of driving this beast. It handles soooo good, accelerates like a rocket and sounds like a muscle car. I love my RCF! If you have not driven one, go to a dealer and ask.....

The grill is very tough. It's made from hog wire and it's a Yugo. Thanks for asking!

I can't believe you did not get the track edition, I love mine. I am just kidding, and jealous. I doubt the dealer would let me in one, as I drive up in my astro van.

I miss my 350 IS F-Sport. The car was quick, comfortable, and handled well.

Lot of work to get those lines to work in all views. Then there is fit and finish - flushness/margins of all adjacent parts not to mention mold vector and draft and parting lines. Looks great but a lot went into the development/execution of this grille fascia area.

I care more about interior than looks. Not a lexus fan, some stuff feels too toyota'ee for me

Digging my new Mercedes, everything feels tight and high quality

Funny thing, I was all set to order the scat pack Challenger until I went to the Dodge owner forums and found out the engine warranty was questionable due to all the racing.

That's when I leased the Lexus Is. I figured their engines are good for at least 250k if I decided to keep her. Turns out I needed to buy a truck.
