Couldn't wait any longer - SRT8 replacement (photo) inside

So, put order and deposit down the day the banks opened. Need room for bikes/hauling and I like torque :-)

Perused a couple of forums (gave up on the *red*) site, now gave up on Chrysler. Not sure how many orders they lost with their delays, pricing, etc. but at least I went American still (almost pulled the trigger on a Cayenne Turbo - if Chrysler doesn't think people are cross shopping, they most certainly are).

Last post here, so enjoy! So hope to see/drive a WKII SRT-8 JGC some day though. Have a few mods planned for "Dark Vagon" since pretty easy to get to 650HP

Re: Couldn't wait any longer - SRT8 replacement (photo) inside

Very sweet!!!!! One of the few cars that can flat-out toast the SRT8. I'm about to have my 3rd kid, and the back of the Vagon just isn't big enough.

Enjoy!

Nice! I love wagons, and 550hp doesn't hurt.

I cross shopped one of those, and could not get over how tiny it is inside. It felt like a compact car.

Yeah, not sure about that either. What kick ass cars the Vs are, I've had mine for 3 years and it still drives like a raped ape. The only issue is if you live in a winter climate like me they suck in the winter, thus why I am looking to trade my V in.

But anyway, congrats. Go join the CTS-V forums at Cadillacfourms. com, great people over there. Black it the fastest, don't let anyone else tell you differently.

Congrats on the V purchase! The "Vagon" is definitely a monster.
