Thirteen Cool Things About My New Car

After checking out all the available information and test driving cars we ended up buying a 2008 Dodge Charger R/T. It doesn’t get the best gas mileage, but had all the features we wanted.

It has a 5.7l V8 Hemi with 350 horsepower and 390 lb-ft of torque. It doesn’t purr, it growls!

Lots of leg room in the front and back

It drives like a dream. Smooth, powerful and responsive.

U-connect — Bluetooth hands free calling connected to my families cell phones

GPS navigation so I don’t get lost

Rear view mirror automatically dims when bright lights get closer

Leather seats with suede accents

Power moon roof

Fog lights (I’ve never had fog lights)

Dual zone air conditioning means my side of the car can be cooler

The car monitors the tire pressure

Sirius satellite radio

Power Adjustable pedals—the distance of the break and gas pedals can be adjusted

I can’t wait to get out on the highway in the Charger for our first road trip at the end of the month. *Note to self: Watch for speed traps in Georgia.

I don’t know you that well (yet), but from what I know of you, that car suits you perfectly. Drive it in good health and hopefully lower gas prices…

Sweet Car. Congrats!! It’s always fun getting a new car. Oh ya, and the new car smell is nice too. LOL!! Great TT.

You gotta get a photo with you in that red dress steppin’ out of your new car. Actually, get one of them alphas too, he can be helpin’ you out of the car like a gentleman. Then of course he’s gonna bow at you feet and beg to be your slave. LOL
Love the color but I probably would of gone for black. Does it come in black?

LOL! Those would be some interesting pic, Rachel. Yes the car does come in black. They have a dark titanium color I liked but not with all the options I wanted.

I love it! Good for you for taking such good care of yourself! A lot of authors really fall short in self care due to “oh I don’t know if it will sell syndrome!” Congratulations on the contract as well.

Hey – I need your help – I’m putting together what marketing efforts work for authors and I’d love to get your take. 🙂

Happy TT

So you went ahead and did it!


I want one!

The Pink Flamingo

Yup, I did it. And I love the car. It drives like a dream! 😀

That’s a good looking car! I hope you enjoy it and that it is good to you.

Neat car. I love leather seats.

Wow that is a beauty. That’s my favorite color.

Sweet! Sirius, bluetooth, GPS…awesome!

We’re getting a new (to us!) car soon and I can’t wait for the leather seats and GPS! Oh how lovely it will be! And automatic locks and doors. We currently have all manual and with an infant it is a pain in the butt! Ha!

Happy TT!

Looks like a fun car. Congrats! HappyT13!

Lori says:

Nice ride…enjoy!! Happy TT.

Cute car!

Enjoy the road & drive safe. 🙂

Have a great Thursday!

Looks like a sweet ride! Enjoy your new car! 😀

Denise says:

Sounds like a great car. We will be looking for a new car later this year. Have fun with this one – it sounds like it’s just made for cool road trips!

Happy TT!

Don’t ya just love all the buttons and switches on the new cars. My mother-ni-law felt like she was in an airplane cockpit the first time she sat in our Tahoe. She nearly freaked when we tested OnStar and the operator could tell us exactly where we were located (on a rural country road)! Now we have an ’08 Nissan Pathfinder and the fun begins again.
