What Mopar Fans Want for Christmas

To be honest, we kinda knew that Mopar fans are somewhat of a special breed of humans because, you know, some of us here at autoevolution are Mopar fans. And, as with any different breed, their (or should we say our) values, principles and expectations are somewhat different than the ones of the general population.

Take Christmas for instance...The others, they all expect Santa to come and bring sweets, clothes, or even a good movie on Blu-ray. Some expect the end of the world hunger, the second coming of Jesus, or hope MJ is pulling another Elvis-like disappearance act ('cause, you know, Elvis isn't dead, we saw him in LA this week...). Our letter to Santa, however, goes a bit like this...

How about, dear Santa, a new 572 Cubic-inch HEMI V8? What, to heavy for ya'? Or too expensive? So that you know, Chrysler is offering all the 650 horsepower and 660 lb.-ft. of torque for $18,300 and, since I didn't crash my 'Cuda this year, I think i deserve one...

By the way, my wife's craving for a 410 Six Pack. No, not beer, but the 470 horsepower and 490 lb.-ft. of torque packed into the 340 cubic-inch block. It's not even expensive: $13,070.

Now, that we got the propulsion means out of the way, how about something for the soul. And eyes...Like the new FLO TV, so I can watch ESPN while the wife is revving the hell out of the 410... I mean, Santa, if you pay that much for the engines, the $629 plus installation Chrysler asks for this seems like nothing, right?

While we're at it, how 'bout remote start? Winter is here, so I would love to heat that HEMI up BEFORE I get out of the house. After all, what's $235 to you?

Oh, yeah, I have a friend who owns a Wrangler. We were just talking about it and he told me he needs a new lift kit. It will cost you in between $1,510 and $5,475, but, sorry to say, I have no idea if his Wrangler is a 2007 or 2010, so look into it, will ya'?

That's about all I need so far. I'll get back to you if something else comes up. Before I forget...
Merry Chrystmas, vrrrmmm, vrrrmmm, vrrrmmm!
