We bought it in June but had it in storage since then. Finally cleaned out the garage today and brought it home.

She is taking lessons now to get her license. If all goes well she'll be driving it in January.

Took 6 hours and we are both exhausted. Pics:

You had it stored through the best of the driving season. Here's hoping you get some good trips out of in the next few weeks.

Welcome to the club.

Mike
I would argue that fall is the best driving season. Especially in Ontario. No blistering mid-day sun. Roof down, heat turned up, beautiful scenery.

First, CONGRATULATIONS to Mrs. FLEX on her new ride!
Second, That is one tiny garage!
Third, Wishing Mrs. FLEX the best of luck when she goes for her driver's test in January.
Fourth, Does Mrs. FLEX's new ride have a 6 speed manual gear box or automatic transmission?
Fourth, Nice daily driver!
Fifth, Please tell me you have a garage for your daily driver.
Sixth, What praytell happened to all the stuff that had been in that tiny garage? Is your trashman going to muttering obscene words and phrases when he stops at the FLEX house this week?
Seventh, Totally well played!

First, CONGRATULATIONS to Mrs. FLEX on her new ride!
Thanks! She absolutely loves the car. She's never really been a "car person" obviously but she just loves her little Spider.

Second, That is one tiny garage!
Yep; hence why we've never had a car in it. My other car is a Doge Charger and in order to be able to get in in there the garage would need to be completely empty and that is never going to happen.

Third, Wishing Mrs. FLEX the best of luck when she goes for her driver's test in January.
Thanks. Her driving instructor says she's doing well. We're going out for a cruise in a bit so I will see if that's true. LOL.

Fourth, Does Mrs. FLEX's new ride have a 6 speed manual gear box or automatic transmission?
Automatic. She has no desire to learn to drive a manual and I am OK with that.

Fourth, Nice daily driver!
Thanks. It's my summer car and during the winter I drive a Charger SRT 392



Fifth, Please tell me you have a garage for your daily driver.
It sits in the driveway during the summer but I rent a garage for it during the winter.

Sixth, What praytell happened to all the stuff that had been in that tiny garage? Is your trashman going to muttering obscene words and phrases when he stops at the FLEX house this week?
Neighbors took some of the good stuff and for the rest.....



Trashman will not be swearing at me.

Seventh, Totally well played!
I just like to see her happy. :);):love:

Your Charger lives close to wear it was born. I like what you have as much as any of the special 2023 "farewell" editions.

Yes, I've owned 4 Chargers now and met many people that work at the Brampton Assembly Plant over the years.

I actually considered buying a final 2023 version but it seems pointless as there aren't enough new features to justify the money and my 2016 only has about 44,000 kilometers on it (27.5k miles).
