Chrysler 300C SRT-8 Review

From Detroit News:
"I couldn't quite make out his eyes behind the wraparound shades.

But as I passed the young highway construction worker in goatee, blue jeans, yellow hard hat and orange vest, I could see his head swivel ever so slightly to follow the progress of my brilliant black 2005 Chrysler 300C SRT-8.

Ah, so this is what the marketing folks mean by an "aspirational" vehicle.

And what red-blooded American male wouldn't want to take a turn behind the wheel of the SRT-8, an uber-macho Detroit sedan on steroids, powered by a super-size edition of Chrysler's iconic Hemi V-8?" Full Article >
I've tried suggesting to my wife that I should probably bring my 300C in to get the oil changed and while I'm there, test drive a SRT-8... bzzzzzzzzzzz - wrong answer. I should know better than to bring these things up and just do them. Forgiveness is easier than permission, right?

300C Convertible

On occasion I get to surf the net for new 300C accessory web sites and photos. Here are a few 300C convertible photos.

This one was modified by newportconvertible.com

I found this one in a photos folder on my computer and do not recall where it is from. If you know, please leave a comment.

Also, I came across this site with lots of modified 300C photos from the forums.

300C Fans

The other day I was picking a few things up at Home Depot and as I was getting into the front seat of my 300C, this guy rushes up and says, "hey wait". Now if I was downtown, my impression of this would be, "something's fishy". But I was in pure Minnesota suburbia and it's happened before. What did the guy want? Of course, he wanted to know about my 300C. Did I like it? How long did I have it? He was thinking of getting one, etc. I've had the car almost a year and this still happens on occasion.

I was putting our daughter in the SUV this am so my wife could take her to Montessori and she was not interested. She kept pointing to the 300C, "daddy's car. ride daddy's car". Even m ykids love it. (when I allow them in it) We went for a 2 hour ride today and she did NOT want to get out.

ICA Names Chrysler 300C Most Washable Car of 2005

I saw this the other day and just had to post it:

Chrysler 300C Most Washable Car of 2005 according to the International Carwash Association. "Keeping your car clean certainly helps its appearance, but it also contributes to its long-term condition and value,"

Of course I'm biased, but a 300C looks good clean or not. But definitley better clean.
