Looks sexy! If I was buying something new to replace my Mach, the Challengers would be up at the top of the list lol. I saw one that had a shaker hood system and was drooling lol. I think they came out last year..?

Yeah I believe Dodge brought it back in 2015. the Shaker is pretty nice, I really like the SRT 392, but the R/T works for me for now.

Yup! I prefer the R/T's as well. The SRT's are awesome, but I dig the retro'ness of R/T LOL.

Re: Got rid of my 2003 Mach 1

theyre definitely the best looking retro car out there by a mile but I'll admit I have issues with their curb weight being closer to what my Lightning weighed

My buddy has a 15 R/T. It has made me a believer. Beautiful car!! I never really paid attention to Mopar, but they're building some awesome cars. Great competition for FORD.

Re: Got rid of my 2003 Mach 1

There were a lot of TSBs out on the Dodges in all models . I have seen 5 of them so far. Make sure the were done ... most important ..the fuel leak one was a hot item .

So far no issues at all, car runs and drives great. I have had it for almost a year now. Got an email from Mach1 registry and thought I'd share. Mach 1's are awesome I sure had a lot of fun with mine. Its amazing how much power it has for a heavier car, it get up and goes with 3:06 gears. I'm going to take it to the track here soon to see what kind of 1/4 mile time it will put down.

Mods:

Diablo tuner
Exhaust-straight pipes cat back
K&N cold air intake
180 degree thermostat
Mopar SRT high flow oil filter
Eibach Lowering kit
20" Hell Cat style wheels

RedRocket, I picked up a 10 Plum Crazy Challenger RT 6sp last year. I really love the car. A lot of people were critical of the weight, including myself, but in all honesty the comfy full size ride won me over. I've got the Super Track Pack so it came with 3.92 rear gears which help the 5.7. Always thought the Mach was a low production car, but found out there were only 670 Plum Crazy RT 6sp in 2010. I'm still glad I kept my Mach, couldn't let it go, but I tend to drive my Challenger more lately. Jim
