The Challenger is the hottest selling muscle car of the big 3.....like it or not. 

https://www.torquenews.com/106/dodge-challenger-sales-continue-grow-segment-declines

Hmmmmm..........................

"So, while the Challenger is still trailing the Mustang in the 2018 annual sales race, it is doing considerably better than either of the competitors in the grand scheme of things – posting solid growth while the competition is way down."  

The Mustang sales might be down a bit BUT, it is STILL out selling the Challenger...........................The Challenger has been and still IS, playing Catch Up with the Mustang............................ so I guess you can say that, the MUSTANG is the Hottest Selling Muscle Car STILL...... :peelout:

+1 David, only the mopar heads want the challenger- no-one else wants a 10 year old "new" car.

Rave reviews everywhere for the 2018 Mustang whereas the Challenger has nothing except the demon.

Torque news is wrong. Here are the sales figures for the USA in 2018.

ps: I don't have the sales figures for "worldwide" handy, but I guarantee you the Challenger and Camaro are NOT outselling the Mustang Worldwide either.

Sales Results - USA - Camaro, Challenger, Mustang - 2018

Year Jan Feb Mar Apr May Jun Jul Aug Sep Oct Nov Dec Total
Camaro 2,867 3,680 5,245 4,529 4,529 4,530             25,380
Challenger 3,405 6,093 8,150 5,892 7,005 6,822             37,367
Mustang 4,732 5,800 8,632 7,125 8,739 7,400             42,428

When your sales numbers are higher than your competitors it means you are outselling them.........

Add on another 13,000 or so for the rest of the world and you’re killing it.

That sounds about right because typically Ford's world wide sales are about 20 to 30% of USA sales.

I think in the past 3 or 4 years the only time the Challenger outsold the Mustang was back in Feb of this year. Its going to be interesting to see what happens to the Challenger when Hyundai buys FCA in the next year or so.

The used car market will be flooded with challengers once the buyers realize they've been duped.

In just about any High heat area of the country it is almost paramount to have your house split in to two zones instead of 1 big unit. One of the first things I did was replace a single 5 ton unit with 2 three ton units and split the cooling of the house in to 2 zones. The heat here in Texas over the past 5 summers has caused me 3 outages but I was never without a cool part of the house to go to. Or if you don’t want to go to that expense you can always put a small “mini split” unit somewhere in the house for about $1500 and that way you will always have a cool spot as a back up plan. In BB’s case, he could put a mini split in his garage to keep his garage queens comfortable year round and if his house AC goes out again he won’t have to get a hotel. He can just go out in the garage and fire up the mini split and sleep in the comfort of that big, bloated, and primer coated Challenger………......

I bought a small 5000 BTU Window A/C Unit that to use if I need it but so far, I have not needed it and I have loaned it to 2 Friends who lost their A/C systems.

If my AC ever went out I'd probably just go sleep in my basement. It's gotta be 10 to 15 degrees cooler down there.

Road America, very cool track, and in the beautiful Kettle Morreine area.  Glad you got your clutch fixed and back on the road, "Good Luck"!  P.S. Do you think our region could ever join up with SAAC  in the "Road America area, kind of like what they did in the Michigan area.  I would love to be able to attend some of their events!   "Thanks, Tim"     :thumbsup:

Later!
