Do everyone remember when Dodge made a Hearst? Wait, they didn’t make a Hearst they made the Magnum. They are basically one in the same. The Dodge Magnum was a Hearst and a station wagon mix. To me it looked hideous and I would never be caught in one of the futuristic mom wagons. Not trying to have that image of myself.
Now Dodge may be coming out with a Challenger Hellcat Wagon. I am not sure why every American Auto Maker has to take a good thing and ruin it. Hey, lets take an awesome car like the challenger and make it look cheap and horrible and turn it into a wagon. Ummm…no.
Ralph Gilles is the President and CEO of SRT and SVP of Design for Chrysler. He is a guy who loves everything fast and furious. He is a man who would slap a turbo or supercharger on every vehicle if Chrysler would let him. He was the one that started this whole Hellcat wagon BS by sending out a few tweets and getting feedback from his social media followers. The problem that I have is that people gave him good feedback. That just means that is feeding fuel to the fire and the Hellcat Wagon may actually be something that will come out. One thing is for sure, I hope we never have to transport one of those. If we did I would just fill out my online bill of lading and cringe as I do it, but It is what it is.
What do you think of this Challenger Hellcat Wagon? Are you with me that it looks horrible or are you a fan?
