Re: "Official" (wink wink) Spotted Thread

Spotted the first Black one (besides mine) on Hulmville Rd in Bensalem, PA yesterday at around 5 PM. Anyone here?

I wasn't in the beast as I was on my way home from the airport after coming back from a very upsetting trip to watch a 62 yard field goal by the Bucs beat my team at the last second

Re: "Official" (wink wink) Spotted Thread

I don't know about you guys, but when I see a new post on this thread, I read it hoping someone spotting me cookin around. Like I've said before, only seen 1 other on the road. I drive about 60 miles a day round trip in the most congested part of NJ. I also hope I spot another and can post on the thread.

Re: "Official" (wink wink) Spotted Thread

[QUOTE=barho]Maybe not official, but I hadn't seen one yet so I figured I'd post one.

So starting from now onward, post when you spot another GC SRT8. snip}

My .02 suggestion
I have been a member of Dakota R/T for 8 years and got them to start a
"you've been spotted" membership drive. Here's how it works.

The moderator adds a link to go print an 8.5 X 11 sheet that is full of business card size images that say<> You have been spotted, by a member of XX forum.com come check us out etc.

You print it, cut em up and put in your glove box. Next time you see one parked anywhere you slip it under the wiper, in the door glass etc.

Yes there will be the occasional freak <> get away from my ride, but
I have never had that reaction, and hand them to the owner IF I see them with their ride. The one thing they never got done was a fill in the space before printing to put your E-addy or your forum name as their sponsor/invitee
to welcome them to the site, or answer questions about the forum.

Use it if you like, PM me if you have questions about it.

Re: "Official" (wink wink) Spotted Thread

I like Buck70's idea.

I also think we need either this thread or a similar one "pinned" so it stays visible. Don't want to have to keep bumping it.

Can the moderator do this?

Re: "Official" (wink wink) Spotted Thread

I don't know what's up lately in the South Hills of Pittsburgh...before I got my GCSRT8 in August, I had only ever seen two other SRT8's of any make on the road before...back in March I saw a red SRT8 Charger at South Hills Village shopping center, and in April I saw a black GCSRT8 with West Virginia plates on I-79. But, until yesterday, I had never seen another SRT8 vehicle on the road (and I do a fair amount of traveling for my job!!!).

Yesterday, waiting to pull out from my office onto Route 60 (near the I-79 interchange) I saw a black Charger SRT8 drive by on Route 60. I was in my wife's Envoy at the time and, by the time I got the green light, he was long gone anyway.

Now, today, I had just pulled out of my office onto Route 60, and I saw a GCSRT8 sitting on the I-79 Northbound Off-Ramp. Just caught sight of it at the last minute as I drove by, so I couldn't tell if it was the new Steel Blue or Black. At least I was in my GCSRT8 today...was it anyone here???

Man...had only seen two in the last eight months...now I see two in two days...what's happening to our exclusivity!!!

I am in Fort Collins. I have seen a Red one on I-70 and a Black one at the Zoo. I have a Silver one. Apparently the dealer here said there are 3 in Fort Collins.... never seen one!!

Re: "Official" (wink wink) Spotted Thread

Caught one today in Westfield, NJ in the home depot parking lot, I parked next to it, a nice steel blue, and took a few cell phone pics of the two together, turns out a woman walked out and was driving it, she kept raving about how fast it was, and I kept looking sadly at how dirty her wheels were, at least she appreciates the engine! I actually told her about our little community, hopefully she'll pop up, she needs a nicer antenna!

Besides the other Black GCSRT8 that shares my parking lot, I've only seen one other SRT vehicle (another GC) in the North Hills of Pittsburgh. Its possible that you could see me on 60 going to or from the airport or going up and down I79 occasionally. I was even at the South Hills Village mall in early October. But still, up this way, I see alot of R/Ts and lesser models but no SRTs. I'm not even sure that anyone knows what they are. I get the occasional stare but I think its because of the front of the vehicle or the wheels and not because people know its an SRT.
