Not kidding. On my way home from work yesterday, I passed a caliber. After a few miles down the road I slowed down for some other cars and he got right on my bumper. After it was clear he got beside me and tried to pull on me. I let him run a little bit, but then he heard my JBA's at WOT. I know it's not nice to pick on the weak, but he asked for it. He definitely knows now he bought the wrong Dodge.

Think of it as a family beatdown.

Every year my son tries me and every year he loses.

What ever happened to the Caliber SRT4? there was an article last year in Car and Driver that said it would have a turbo charged 4-banger motor that would pump out 300hp!!! It was claimed that it would be a sub 6 sec 0-60!! I had even toyed w/ the idea of getting one, but it never came.

Oh god, I think that thing is an eye sore. I love my charger, but some of the dodge vehicles leave a little something to be desired (present company excluded).
