Re: "Official" (wink wink) Spotted Thread

Spotted: Black GC SRT8 going from 394W->100S this morning at 8:15 am.

If I didn't know any better, I would have thought it was me!! Anyone here?

You probably didn't see me, as I was 6 or so cars back on the clover leaf. You might have caught me for a second in your rear view when you hit the 2nd 100S merge lane, as I jumped that lane too, in attempt to catch up with you. But two very slow cars jumped in front of me, and I had to Brembo her down, big-time! I was really moving...

I was thinking I would catch up to you once the traffic-kludge opened up at Excelsior, but you were long gone by the time I got there.

Man these things are really noticeable when you spot one from behind in the daylight. I saw the general look, then the tires, then the bumper lights and was able to positively id this beast in about 2 seconds!

Holy crap, another calgarian!

I've seen 1 silver, 1 black and 2 red (one of which being mine).

I cruised by a guy in a black one a few weeks ago in the NW near Shaganappi Trail. I was heading to bowness for supper with the g/f and accidently had to cut him off to make my turn in time since his Jeep caught me off guard! I honked as I drove off, hopefully he wasn't too annoyed.

Then on thursday of last week I was following a Red SRT8 onto Deerfoot south from 16th ave in my dad's 05 Duramax GMC and wished I was in my Jeep at that moment. Especially since I saw that he still had the stock exhaust, I could have given him abit of a drive by .

How are the crappy roads treating you so far?

Re: "Official" (wink wink) Spotted Thread

I saw a Bright Silver one going East on Route 422 in Cleveland, OH. Also I saw another Bright Silver one on at a Wedding Party (In a Tent) @ Sussex Court in Aurora, OH. And last but not least I saw a Black one on Route 91 & Route 20 Intersection in Willoughby, OH. And I thought I was the only one to have one around here. Atleast the only one who is on this message board atleast, I wish some others would speak up so we could get together, and smoke some Blazer SS's...

Feeling is mutual, I've only seen two SRT's on the road so far. Both have been on Mayfield Rd.

Re: "Official" (wink wink) Spotted Thread

We were in chicago last weekend for the bears game (go Bears) and did not see one srt, i was pretty disapointed. Lots and lots of them inferior range rovers but no srt's i could not believe it. So if ya saw a black srt from ohio it was me. We stayed at the marriot on n. michigan ave. By the way you chicago drivers a f'in crazy if you were to drive that way in toledo ohio you would get beat down. lol. No kills on the wat to and fro had the old lady on board (the owner of the srt) I try to tell her that everybody that is next to us wants to race but she dont believe it. Go figure. By the way go BEARS lookin for 8-0 tomorrow.

Re: "Official" (wink wink) Spotted Thread

I saw a black SRT8 at the Ontario, CA airport on 10/30 around 11:40 am. I heard it pull up as I exited terminal two. Unfortunatly I was in a hurry to get to the car rental and didn't have the opportunity to introduce myself. I don't think it was stock. It sounded a louder than mine. Either that or my ears were still shot from the flight.

Re: "Official" (wink wink) Spotted Thread

Saw a new 07 in the new red color this morning at my dealer. It's just sitting there screaming "buy me!" I know some folks don't like the new color but I thought it looked awesome!

Went back to the dealer tonight to pick my car up from service, the 07 was sold already. Got a close up look. The front and rear areas that are black on the 06's but painted on the 07's are definitely textured, not smooth. Looks like they just painted the black textured areas. I do like the look.
