With a 2013 Dodge Charger SRT8.

My name is Connor Ricks, I’m 19 and I’ve been into cars since I was old enough to talk. My dad and I spend a decent amount of time working on our cars, because its fun to learn about how a car works. In fact just yesterday, my dad and I switched the air suspension in our 2003 Lincoln Navigator to coil springs. My first car was a 2006 Dodge Charger, I loved that car, it wasn’t perfect, but I have a lot of memories inside it.

When I decided I wanted to get a new car, my dad said that if I could pay 20% of the cost upfront, and make 30% of each monthly payment, I could get whatever car I wanted. So I saved up a pretty penny, and ended up with the monster that is our 2013 Dodge Charger SRT8. We’ve done a little modification to it, but we don’t want to void the warranty, so most of it is aesthetic until the warranty runs out. I don’t take it to college because, well, it just isn’t a good idea, so my mum and I went 50/50 on a 2011 BMW 128i, I like it a lot, but there just isn’t that, raw, eat your face off, power like our Charger.

There are a multitude of cars I would love to have, but if I had to pick a few, my realistic dream cars, would be, an F-Type R in Polaris White, a Lotus Evora in Laster Blue, or a white Viper GT. My dream cars would be a McLaren P1, or 650s, both in McLaren orange, or an Aston Martin Vanquish in Ocellus Teal. Anyways, I’m off to install a strut bar in my Charger, see you on CarBuzz!
