2008 SRT-8 Challenger

We saw this car on the Quality North used car lot in Albuquerque, NM and drove by it for a couple weeks. After the Mopar Club show & shine at Melloy Dodge in April, we decided to stop and just "check it out" for curiosity's sake. Well, it was a 2008 SRT-8 limited edition (#5290 out of 6400) with only 559 miles on the clock (250 miles put on by the Quality North Manager!). The car was originally won by a woman at the Palms Casino in Las Vegas, NV who decided she didn't want it and returned it to the dealer. The car was put up for auction and purchased by the DeLorenzo family and brought to Albuquerque. It's a fully-loaded, Hemi orange, SRT-8 with a 6.1 Hemi, 5-spd auto, traction control, stability program, 4-wheel anti-lock brembo brakes, power sunroof, navigation, satellite radio, AC, front/side airbags, 20-inch wheels and power everything!

We made a deal that day and technically became the first titled owners of the car. It still had the plastic carpet protectors and all warning labels/tags like new! The car handles awesome for such a large car and the Hemi is super strong. It's an investment/show car for us so it won't get driven many miles....that's the hardest part!
