    She got the 'Cool Vanilla' version.

    I got to say, I really like it.
    What do you think?

    It's unique, but I don't care for it myself.

    The side windows are too small and the interior is kinda oddly styled.

    The windows are small, but there are no blind spots. She got the V-6 with 250hp. Seems to have all the power we might need. I have a truck, so towing and hauling is not an issue with the car. The main two design issues with the car that impress me are: The interior is so quiet at high speed, it's easy to get to 80 and not notice. The other thing is serviceability, everything is simple to get to. I would seem the engineers had small women in mind when they put it on the design table. A lot of car for the price.

    [​IMG] I really like the Magnum ... awesome ride. Like the retro slim windows ... the heft of the chassis. The car is begging to be modified.

    Used to like the 300c too until it became the "Ghetto Bentley" as I saw it mentioned in some articles. [​IMG]

    It looks a bit like the car from the movie "The Car", but specifically designed for demonic soccer moms. [​IMG]

    I must admit it is a unique and interesting design similar to those fifties hot-rods with the narrow windows.

    Put some 22's on it with limo tint and some booming subs and people will think your wife is a baller.

    It's nice to see American car companies sticking it to the competition by building: Cool AMERICAN cars!

    I like the path that the domestic car makers are making. Stop trying to emulate the Japanese and Euro makers and start making GOOD AMERICAN CARS.

    I have always like fast station wagons. I hope that Chevy doesn't mess up the new Nomad when it comes out but I think it's supposed to be a small wagon...

    What a great car. I have heard ALOT of great things about the magnum including the ride and how nice the Interior is.

    Probably in reality the 6 has hemishperical combustion chambers as well. Maybe dodge could call it the semi-hemi to differentiate it from the V-8. [​IMG]

    I've seen the concept Nomad and have to say it is much more appealing to me than the Magnum. (But, of course, I've always been a classic Chevy guy).

    It's nice to see car companies taking risks by recycling old designs. [​IMG]

    Add me to the ones who like this sweet ride, with it's cool retro styling, it's sure to be a huge headturner. I can definitely see these babies being tricked with the tint,rims,suspension etc... even the ghost tail lights,lol!
