78 Ford Mustang in high school (dad's old car, awsome 302 V8, crappy styling).
78 Chrysler Cordoba in college (bought used, excellent highway car, huge trunk, underpowered 383, no Corinthian leather).
87 Ford Taurus (bought used, first work car after getting married, reliable V6).
94 Chevy Lumina (first new car, family truckster).
00 Chevy Lumina LTZ (second new car, put 150K miles on it with no problems).
06 Charger R/T (HEMI fun!)

The answer to your question is no, I was not always a MOPAR guy. To be honest, I still don't think of myself as sold on MOPAR. I bought the Charger because in 06 it and the Mustang were the only RWD cars available with 300+ HP that were less than $30K, and the Mustang was too small for my purposes. If Pontiac had come out with the G8 earlier, I probably would have bought that instead. But if Dodge continues making Chargers and Challengers, I can see myself sticking with MOPAR.

Well this is my second Mopar, my first was the family hauler, a 03 Voyager, bought in 06 with 35k, 3 yrs and 63k later its held up pretty well. I got the Charger in Apr and could not be happier. Prior to these two cars I was primarily a GM guy. However, I will admit one day I want a Vette in the drive way.

well... while the cars i've driven have been all over... I was more Ford than anything, until the charger. I really liked the way it looked from just seeing pictures, and then I sat in one at the autoshow further deepening my affection, and then, when it came to the test drive, i was completely sold.

growing up as a young teen i was always into old cars. I loved the look and the style. At the age of 15 i started searching for my first car in newspapers and online. In my home town i found a 1971 Dodge Dart Swinger. The car was all original and only had 28,xxx on it. The car was in great condition, that was the first car that i had ever bought and drove it around for a couple of weeks. I took it to a car show up at the joliet race way and won 1st place for a car that all i did was wash it. The funny part was i didn't even have a license, just had a learners permit.
Needless to say my dad saw the value in the car and we ended up taking great care of that car. (still for sale if any one is looking for a great car, buy the way...) After that car i bought a 73 pontiac LeMans that i drove around in high school until i left for college and that is when i bought a 97 grand prix.
Although while in high school my love for Mopars grew. My father and i went in on a 69 Dodge Dart swinger that we restored. Hemi orange, 340 4sp. We took the 71 and the 69 dodge to all kinds of cars shows during my high school and college years. I have been to mopar Nationals more many years in a row.
While in College my dad got lucky and had a dealer ship friend call and offer him a First Edition 08 Dodge Challenger SRT8. He ended up buying the car. Then 4 weeks later he found is dream car in a garage. A 69 Dodge Charger R/T triple Black Red butt stripe 440 magnum dana. Him and i went on this car together and just recently finished the car with some help from our friends.
Now my daily driver is a 2010 Dodge Charger SXT i love the car, just a great driver. I have started to build up a supply of parts that i plan on putting on this spring.

I will always own dodges the rest of my life, i have meet so many people and learned so much about these cars through the years. I have gotten lucky through the years with Mopars and have become good friends with people all over. One of the most famouse that everyone knows is MR. Norm. My family and a couple of friends have got to know him really well and even worked for him here and here. MOPAR OR NO CAR!
