Makes Me Want to Cry

You see, none of the dealerships here has one on their showroom floor and I've yet to see one in person. So seeing one, let alone a whole bunch of Challengers was really a site to behold. They were all sitting on a large storage lot that is owned by a local auto auction company. Most still had the protective shipping guards in place.
I later found out from the folks at Baxter that these were a bunch of customer-ordered 2008 SRT8s (about $45K each) that had just been unloaded at the rail yards when the horrible hail-storm (100mhp winds) came through on June 27th, 2008. Luckily Baxter's portion of the order were still in the rail cars and were not damaged. These cars are all going back to the manufacturer and will not be resold. It's a good bet they will be parted out and probably crushed and recycled. Knowing that they only made about 6,500 of the 2008's, as well as knowing that on the other side of that fence sits a load of 425HP tire-smoking monsters, just makes me wish someone was having one heck of a scratch and dent sale.
