Man, I just keep getting compliments on the M10 here lately...and the car is filthy! After the big snow storm we have a few nice days followed by days with 60 mph winds and walls of dirt (I need to upload some pics).

As I run errands around town I'm always looking out for other Mopar owners to tag...my errands have been getting slowed down 30-45 mins here lately just by people asking about the M10 etc. It is almost as bad as driving the Charger. I think since it is a "newer" car people figure I'm safe to approach, lol.

The only sad thing about tagging Mopars is that I don't get to hit more M10s. Not enough to go around.

Today was pretty nice, tons of people running around (could be prep for Easter...usually Thursday night is low-key and I get to avoid crowds)...the cars are slowly starting to come out. Saw a lot of drop tops running around town and chicks in trans ams...some were cute, too bad they have horrible taste in cars :lol:

Moral of the story is...drive your M10!

I must agree! You know #405 is my only transportation so driven daily & is now over 30K miles. Weather here in WA is getting better but its spring so rain sun rain sun! Lol I have noticed increased interest in my M10 but people always look, I just think now with less rain they are willing to stop admire and ask questions. Have a great Easter weekend!

Yep...the folks that bought them solely as time capsule investments are missing out..that is why I post stuff like this...if they see what we experience daily, maybe they'll be more inclined to get theirs out from time-to-time.

Ironically, we have some rain headed this way now...basically just in time for sunrise services. Rain chances continue thru the early part of the week, with a chance for snow flurries too...Keep in mind we were upper 70s and lower 80s the last few days, lol.

Hope the rain doesn't deter too many people...Maybe we will slowly be able to spread the word and get more folks promoting the registry. Same people that stop and talk to us, will then be more likely to stop and talk to another M10, especially if the stripe color is different and can thus become "agents" to help get more cars accounted for!

I actually got to wash it tonight (did I mention rain and snow were coming?)...I may hop back to the Ram for a few days. It is odd because while the car has always gotten a lot of attention, it is now noticeably more firsthand intros and questions etc. Odd to both notice that when we drive them very regularly.

Hope y'all have a great Easter as well!

My contract ended with work last Thursday, so now I'm on a forced vacation until the wife makes me go back to work. I am one of those "once in a while" drivers, but the rain has never been a problem. My theory is that if it starts raining and you drive home really fast, then the water will keep moving and not have time to spot. :twisted: I do get a lot of comments on the M10 whenever we go out. It's almost like they have never seen a Challenger before. I haven't heard any "I saw one of those only with a xxxx stripe." before. Evidently the people I run into don't go far enough south to run into #405.


Red Stripe, 134

Red 134 car shows are coming soon! There is one at puyallup fairgrounds this weekend! We need to try to get both the M10's to one together this summer! I will for sure be entering #405 in Sunbust all mopar show in Graham WA, & the Goodguys show at Puyallup fairgrounds in July. I think I will enter in Mopar Magic in Bremerton in June. Let me know & hope to meet you at a show this summer!

I'd be all over that if I was up that direction...

One of my big goals has been to get one of each stripe color together. The guy in town that got the red stripe from the dealership has been mia for a long while now...Haven't seen him or the car for a long time.

Techincally the "Trio" shot you've all seen wasn't legit as the story goes the blue striped car was the Mopar promo one...No clue if it has been destroyed, if it got a # and was sold used, or if that was bogus and it is really 3 M10 owners. Either way, having all three together at one time would be pretty sweet.
