[Chrysler300] Hemi C and Homestake Pass on I-90

Greetings group!
    I have know the owner of the Chrysler-Dodge dealership in Butte, Mt. for years, and went to the festivities Thursday after work. After catching up on each others lives he asked if I had driven the Hemi C- I said no but would like to- so he said- "I want you to take it out and run it to the limits- push it hard and tell me what you think. I know you have driven police package cars, most of Chrysler's muscle cars and own 300's, so run it and tell me what you think". OH WOW! I took it to the I-90 on ramp heading east at the foot of Homestake pass- the Continental Divide- and hit 90 less then half way down the on ramp- and as soon as I hit the area where the "Jersey Barrier" starts I pushed it to 120mph- and held it there all the way to the top of the pass- thru many S curves and up 6% grade- not a tire noise, no body lean- like I was on rails- My M is not near as sure at over 90 on the same stretch, let alone the K's. Then at the top of the pass we (Kelly and I- no salesman) turned it around and back down again at 120 and to the 127 "limit" the computer is set at, and was having a absolute rush- especially when I passed another M at 120- good thing the MHP guys weren't out!
   After you get past the looks and the "C" name- this car is a absolute blast to drive, handles unbelievably well, turns heads, and a HEMI to boot- My opinion is it is deserving of being a letter car- not limited in numbers like our originals, but for today a true "muscle car" that little on the road could stay with, fewer could outhandle. 
  My nickels worth- if you get a chance to drive one- you'll have a blast.
