300C Production Begins in Europe

Now Europeans can get a taste of the sweetness of a 300C
"Production of the Chrysler 300C has begun at the Magna Steyr factory at Graz in Austria. This plant also builds the Jeep Grand Cherokee, Chrysler Voyager and Chrysler Grand Voyager, and will be churning out both the Sedan (saloon) and Touring (estate) versions of the 300C. The first cars came off the line yesterday."

2006 Dodge Charger SRT8

Dodge Charger SRT8
Automobile Magazine has a nice review of the 2006 Dodge Charger SRT8.

"Yes, it has four doors, and no, it's still no beauty. But if the SRT8 version of the Charger goes the way its Chrysler 300C SRT8 twin goes-and there's no reason it shouldn't-it will have gone quite a distance in restoring some performance credibility to a great name that once ruled America's streets."
