A warm and summerful hello to all my ATS gear headed friends...
Recently a few of the pals at work got the car buying bug and since it was contagious, I found myself starting up the search for one of my own. I
looked around and decided on a few to consider:
- 18' Dodge Challenger R/T Shaker Scat Pack

have been a sign. I shot over to the dealership, gave the lady the keys to my beloved '08 Corvette C6 LS3 (paid off) and pointed to the magnificent
beast while feebly attempting to wipe the drool waterfalling from the sides of my mouth. So now, my dear friends, I wanted to introduce my new gal

I'm one happy pappy!
