ok, I was calling bullshit on this one. however, today on Dixie in Waterford I'm sitting at a light. Next to me was a red Nitro. I didn't pay much attention to it because it looked relatively stock. Then the light changed green and I heard a bit of a tire squeal and then an obviously well tuned V8 revving up as the Nitro left the light very quickly. On the back of the Nitro, there was the SRT8 badge.

Hot damn, it lives!!!

Is the dodge of 1966-1971 back? When you could order a 426 Hemi in anything you wanted, including a Dart (they had to sledgehammer the firewall and sit the motor 4 inches to the pass side to make it fit)

I hope I hope I hope

Now, we need a 6.1 hemi Neon - do they even make neons anymore?

lol. I didn't think you were a liar. I just figured it was a badge on a 3.7 Nitro. That doesn't make it an SRT 8.

Then again, in this case, I guess it does.

so your saying that you can tell better sitting next to one at the stop light and hearing it take off than peepee can while standing next to one and possibly talking to the driver about it? from what I read here that is what it looks like. is it? I'm confused.

This sounds like a pretty cool concept.. I seen one at the SEMA show a year or so ago.. I wonder if this one is 2wd or AWD?? I know I've seen a 6.1 in a JK 4door before somewhere on this site so I can't see why this couldn't be possible to do a nitro .. I believe ya PP.. I'm sure it was a pretty cool vehicle to see up close.. Wonder If its fast. ..
