It's an accepted axium in the specialty used car market that the first and last years production of a specific model tend to be the most desired.

That may well be true. However, here's my firsthand experience as it relates to first years production models. Of the cars I own:

97 Pontiac Grand Prix GTP 230HP 280lb/ft (first production year of this body style)
Following year
98 Pontiac Grand Prix GTP 240HP 280lb/ft

02 Thunderbird 252HP 267lb/ft (first Production year of the new TBird)
03 Thunderbird 280HP 286lb/ft

04 GTO 350HP 360lb/ft (first production year after a long hiatus of the marque)
05 GTO 400HP 400lb/ft

Although not a universal truth, it's generally accepted the first model year of any particular series tends to be the most problematic in terms of recalls and TSBs.

I have 0 experience with DC cars. Are these tenents true with them as well?

Good food for thought. I know that next year I'm going to be saying "Sure, now they come out with that." But, on the other hand...

I thought about waiting a year also, but then I thought what the hell!!,and besides life is too short. So there is a '06 in my garage right now.

If anything goes wrong with my 11 year old Jimmy over the next month while I wait for my RT, it will cost more to fix than the Jimmy's worth.

That pattern is highly unlikely with SRT. See, the cars you mentioned had sales slumps so something had to be done.
