Will Chrysler drop the top? Anyone have any inside info?
Well that's what the 300C is for; Although many have expressed wishes that the 300C were offered with a manual, I would not buy a 300C with a manual transmission. It's just not that type of car. The Challenger on the other hand, is; I'll definitely insist on a manual when I buy my Challenger, since I'm planning to keep the "C" as well.Sticks are great for teenagers.. I've grown up now, and I like to relax while driving..
And since I got out of the car show scene and into boating, I can't afford to have a nice daily driver and another play car!
I really really want a Challenger though.....
If you sell that T-bird to buy a Challenger, then I'm gonna have to make a special trip to Idaho to slap you silly. :smashfrea You have one of the most beautiful cars ever made. Don't make the mistake of getting rid of it....unless you want to sell it to me real cheap. :biggrin:Oh yeah I've got one of those "holes in the water to throw piles of money into" as well :biggrin: But hey I live within 3 miles of one of the most beautiful lakes in the world ( Lake Coeur d'alene, Idaho) so I GOTTA have a boat !
I really really want a Challenger too; but not enough to give up the 300C (or the boat). I am considering selling my 1957 T-Bird however, which should come pretty close to paying for a Challenger. Just not sure it makes sense to get rid of a car that is holding it's value for one that will depreciate!

It's funny that you mention "Woodstock". I live right next to Woodstock, IL. I spent plenty of time there for 6 years while I was in the National Guard since that is where our infantry unit was based. The movie "Groundhog Day" was filmed there. I actually met Bill Murray after one of my Guard weekends while they were still filming in 1992.For your viewing pleasure Dave :biggrin:
These were from a couple car shows last summer; sorry about the crappy cell phone picture quality. The T-Bird's name is "Woodstock" by the way; named after the little yellow bird from the "Peanuts" comics.
And you're right; it has been in my family since 1969, and was completely restored (body off frame) in 1993. It's just that I don't fit in it or see out of it real well and it drives like.....well it drives like a 1957 Ford! But it's fun to cruise in summer with the top off, and take to local car shows.
Yes that's the original color; and Thanks for the compliment! Ok I guess I'll keep it a while longer; I'll wait for the Challenger's value to drop like a rock like my 300C has and buy a used one then. Unless I win the powerball jackpot tomorrow ($173 million). :biggrin:Is the yellow the original color? That sure is a purty car.
