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

        Why are you making my life difficult!!! I love my C and I'm now
focusing on arranging a purchase of a purple SSR in the next 6
months....I thought that the new C was cool and great for the carrying on
of the Chrysler 300 name and heritage...but now your review is causing me
to rethink the next car purchase plan!!!  I am only allowing myself one
more vehicle in my collection....HMM...I thought I was home safe with the
SSR to round out my collection...but your rave review now has me
hankering to drive the new Hemi C!!! 300'ly,  ROB KERN
