For the 2008 NASCAR
Sprint Cup season, Dodge
has announced that it will replace the "Avenger
" stickers on its Car of Tomorrow with the "Charger
" stickers it had been using on its non-COT racers this past year. The announcement is loaded with flowery prose that name-drops Richard Petty and talks of the Charger nameplate's race heritage (the Intrepid
era is conveniently overlooked). That, says Dodge, is why it was a natural decision to campaign the full-time COT as a "Charger." We think it's mostly because the "real car" version of the Avenger is lame. Seriously, we'd take an old Spirit R/T over a new Avenger R/T any day.
Thanks for the tip, John!
