Special Modifications: I bought this car years ago and actually did six New England winters with it as a daily driver when it was in more ‘stock’ form. It has always been a great car and although a little on the heavy side still moves on down the road for a big land yacht (11.91 @ 117mph). It sits in the garage most days now as I got a little ‘winter beater’ (also featured in this category) to keep the SRT8 out of the snow. 🙂 I don’t see a whole lot of the first gen 300c SRT8s much anymore and love taking it to Cars and Coffee. It rides a little ‘firm’ but it is still my comfortable ‘Old Man Car’.
