Dodge Challenger goes Plum Crazy Purple for 2010

I really like it. I didn't see this posted.



Quote:
Of the three classic muscle car nameplates currently on sale in the United States, the Dodge Challenger may very well sport the most retro look and feel. Whether or not that's a good thing depends on your personal point of view, but Chrysler seems happy to accept the role and is further promoting the link to Challenger's '70s heritage with a new Plum Crazy Pearl Coat color option for 2010.

In case you're not aware, Plum Crazy was the surprisingly popular deep purple hue found on the Challenger and its stablemate, the Plymouth Barracuda, during the heyday of the American muscle car wars. These days, any car originally painted up in Plum Crazy has an intrinsic value to many collectors, and it seems Dodge is hoping for a similar situation the second time around.

The purple color is only available on R/T (for $225) and SRT models (for $500) for 2010 and the package also includes Plum interior stitching and a Plum seat stripe on the SRT8. Outside, buyers can choose from either Black Dual Wide Stripes or a newly-optional set of stripes in white. Previous High Impact colors Detonator Yellow and B-5 Blue are no longer available for order.

Also new for the Challenger in 2010 is a Super Track Pack option for a reasonable $400 that allows the driver to fully disengage stability control (finally) and adds 245/45ZR20 tires from Goodyear along with an uprated suspension with Load Leveling and Height Control, Performance Steering and heavy-duty disc brakes.

Some of the older colors from the late 60s-early 70s are pretty cool. Good move to offer Plum Crazy.

This is my favorite color of Dodge. VERY GOOD choice to offer this color imo.

As much of Chevy Fan as I am if I wasnt getting a Camaro and still wanted/needed something with more than 2 seats I would go with a challenger however it would have to be PlUM CRAZY !!!!!!!!!!!

It takes a lot to take me away from GM. The Chally is nice but never steered me into buying it........This color is AWSOME IMO.

Dodge has plum crazy
Ford Has Grabber Blue
Gm needs to add one of there old colors huggar orange or DaytonaYellow

Good move on Dodge's part.

Manufacturers all dig extra-charge paint colors now.

Hell..most of Dodge's color selection is extra-charge.
They only have like 3 or 4 that AREN'T. And those are boring colors.

The remaining non-extra charge colors are indeed boring:
black, gray, invisible, slow...

...uh wait I got sidetracked.

I think on some vehicles they even charge extra on some of the boring colors.

They charge extra for BLUE now.
That should be a crime.
