the new Dodge Challenger Hellcat.. muscle-cars are alive

2015 Dodge Challenger Hellcat 707hp …a lotta car for $60,990
as a comparison… a new 2015 Suburban LTZ 4×4 loaded is $70k
my new 2013 Avalanche LTZ was $51k.. but that was the last year they were made
my new 1965 GTO was $3,050 .. 360hp.. 3 deuces.. 4 speed but that was when the ‘muscle-car’ era started–the good ol’ days

the drive home

12 hours..  avoided the traffic in Brooklyn.. and on the NJ Turnpike.. but somehow we caught some  just south of the Va-NC border in NC.. down to one lane.. not nice.. lost a half hour or more…you just can’t beat it… weather stayed nice until we ran into a light storm on I-40 headed across toward Wilmington–got to see a double rainbow though..
