New Charger ad, more crap

Mutilating that classic rock song into rap crap,
then showing some YUPPIE Charger driver fantasizing that
little kids on bikes are 'tards on Harleys.
It's bad enough seeing 40+ year old YUPPIES actually RIDING
Harleys, complete with those ridiculous "half-helmets" they use
to look like "rebels."
Someone please wake me from this consumerist nightmare, please?
Bring back REAL muscle cars!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

425hp V8 rear wheel drive sedan seems like a muscle car to me.

First; I am a Mustang guy thru and thru.

HOWEVER I do appreciate a nice car now and then;

Anyone else think the new Pontiac Solstice could use the GTO powerplant
and some big rubber? I think the car would be visually awesome and
probably go like a bat out of hell.

*sigh* a cool two seater with 400+ hp from a GM division other than
Chevrolet (vette) is likely not gonna happen...

Ain't no likely about it. The Vette will always be at the top of the
GM food chain.

What the hell are you talking about!?!? We have cars today that
absolutely annihilate the muscle cars of the 1960s in every performance
category. Even many econoboxes would give a Boss 429 a run in the 1/4
mile and kill it on a road course. Times are good indeed for us gear
heads. Quit bitching.

Re: New Charger ad, more crap

Uhhhh....
I haven't seen the commercial but...
those 40 something guys on Harleys are the ones that have been riding them
for the last 20-30 years.
They are the ones that took the Harley from a bad image to a great ride.

How many punk kids do you see riding a Harley? Because ?
The half helmets are a compliance thing, not a fashion statement.
i.e.: "I'll wear it if I have to but I will wear as little as possible and
be comfortable while I'm at it"

Sounds to me like YOU are the rebel without a clue.

Oh, yea AND.... those 40 something Yuppies ARE the target market because WE
are the ones that drove the originals and WE are the ones that can afford
the new cars.

You have your own generation, make your own classics. If you don't like the
charger that's your perogative, a lot of other people don't. Just because it
has 4 doors doesn't mean it isn't muscle..

I like the half helmet because it is lighter, cooler and, most of all, I
can hear much better.

How's your hearing at 75mph with the wind
barreling into your eardrums? :-)

Have seen the commercial, and every single one of those
bikes is a custom chopper, not a stock Harley-Davidson.

Many, if not most, of those 40-something guys who can
afford to spend $30K to $150K on a custom chopper
have very little riding experience. If they did, it was before
marriage and family.

They don't even know how to countersteer a motorcycle,
and those of us with decades of experience consider many
of those owners to be clueless RUBs riding butt jewelry.

Sure, there's also *real* bikers riding those types of bikes,
but they usually built it themselves. If you ever go to Sturgis
during the rally, you'd be astonished at the number of RVs
and motorcycle trailers parked all over the place.

Motorcycling is supposed to be about getting away from it all,
but all too many are into it for ego gratification, and may never
have to replace the rear tires as they rarely ride their Garage
Queens. Too busy making money or something. ;^)
