08 Dodge Challenger SRT on the Street

I read a review in the Chicago Tribune about the 2008 Dodge Challenger SRT8 is powered by a 6.1-liter, 425-horsepower Hemi V-8 with 5-speed automatic. It starts out with anecdotes about how people reacted to it when they took it out for a drive. Such as "There was the guy who made a U-turn to give chase--and a thumbs up. Another guy dropped his beer when circling a tree on his riding mower to get a better look. And, finally, the man for whom Challenger was –almost– a religious experience. "
Now I am not saying the following is the truth, in fact I would suggest it is highly improbable and factually non-existent. Such as, they were driving their SRT8 around they were showing the Hemi's 425 horsepower by putting the petal to the metal at each stoplight. They drove the car around doing tireburning donuts at alternate intersections, playing tic-tac-toe with a Chrysler 300C burning in X's , or maybe naked girls waving out the windows getting peoples attention, cops pulling them over and planting drugs so they could confiscate it.
Or maybe people were so impressed by the nostalgic beauty of of it as the end of a era that they just wept.
