I STILL will not give a shit how many they sell,
what their options are,

| Chrysler may soon have another hit on its hands.
| The Auburn Hills unit of DaimlerChrysler AG says it has taken
| 20,000 orders and identified 85,000 potential buyers for the 2006 Dodge
| Charger sedan, which goes into production this week.
| Not even the Chrysler 300 sedan, the automaker's biggest hit in
| years, posted such strong early numbers.
| "To us, it's a good indication of the interest level in this
| vehicle," said Chrysler spokesman Rick Deneau.
| But the four-door revival of the classic muscle car will face stiff
| competition in the midsize sedan category now ruled by the Honda Accord
| and Toyota Camry.
| Industry forecaster Global Insight predicts annual sales at 70,000
| for the Charger, which would make it a hit but not a home run. The
| Accord sold more than that in the first three months of this year.
| But Andre Tadros, general sales manager at Northwestern Dodge in
| Detroit, says early customer response tells him the Charger will be a
| strong seller.
| "I haven't seen this much excitement for a Dodge in a long time,"
| he said.
| Chrysler will build the Charger at its plant in Brampton, Ontario,
| and expects to have the first models in dealerships by early next
