    Will SRT give this cues...

    Word is that Chrysler’s SRT division was going to debut a Challenger SRT-8 at the New York Auto Show, an event that did not come to pass. SEMA is being pegged as the next most likely debut venue.

    With the announcement by Ford that the Mustang Shelby GT500 will produce an SAE-certified 500 horsepower, many have questioned how both Dodge and Chevy will respond when their pony cars debut. Will the Challenger SRT-8 materialize as an answer, and will Chevy step up with a 500-hp Camaro SS? And how would that affect the Viper and Vette?

    Though the Mustang Shelby GT500’s thunder was stolen by Dodge and Chevy at the Detroit show, it’s apparent the super Stang is raising some eyebrows around the industry.

    The challenger will see that horsepower only if the Viper gets a major h.p. increase as is expected.

    No, both cars (and the Camaro) will eventually be available brand new at the same time to be cross-shopped.

    My favorite car of all time is the 1971 Dodge Challenger R/T with the 426 HEMI and non-shaker hood.

    So now I'm lookin' for a 2008 Dodge Challenger R/T with a 426 HEMI non-shaker hood.

    In for some massive horses.
