Laura's New Dodge Challenger SE RS
Laura stopped at Chuck Patterson Auto World yesterday afternoon to obtain brochures for Dodge Challenger and Toyota Camry. She test-drove a Dodge Challenger SE RS. She declared that she had no desire to test-drive a Camry. Driving the Challenger convinced her that it was the car she desired.

It is a beautiful car. Laura took these photographs with her iPhone. I shall photograph this beautiful beast soon with my Nikon D3 and make the images available here.
