Winning a new car is not an everyday event, so you can imagine the level of excitement Barney was feeling when his Pitch Black Dodge Challenger R/T was delivered today. Especially since this is Barney’s first time as a prize winner — ever.
Another “first” for Barney is owning a sports car. In the past Barney has always opted for more practical transportation. Adding to the excitement is a 375 horsepower 5.7-liter V8 HEMI engine packing some serious muscle under the hood. Certainly a big step over his 160 horsepower 2003 Honda Element.
Barney’s first drive in the Challenger was to visit his mom who works at a preschool nearby. Who wouldn’t want to show off their brand new car to mom? And mom won’t be the only person to spy Barney behind the wheel of his new prize. Warm summer nights are ideal for cruising up and down Pensacola Beach Blvd and Pensacola Beach offers some of the most beautiful beaches in the world. As a Florida resident, there’s no doubt that Barney’s favorite destination this summer will include numerous drives to the beach.
In anticipation of his prize, the 28 year-old computer technician and independent contractor from Florida is already browsing eBay Motors for trick mods and accessories. Barney has always been a “car” guy and no stranger around Mopar products. His first upgrade will be a stainless steel exhaust kit that roars louder than a P-51 Mustang.
Speed and power aren’t the only things Barney likes about the Challenger R/T. Being a big guy, the Challenger offers lots of room and comfort – something Barney’s girlfriend can appreciate. Thank goodness Barney didn’t win a Scion iQ.
Barney is no stranger to finding cool stuff on eBay with over a 100 purchases completed to date. Recently he purchased a replacement K-cup for his Keurig coffee maker. But the Barnes and Noble Nook color tablet is by far Barney’s favorite eBay purchase.
Excited, shocked, and also very appreciative. Barney expresses his sincere gratitude to eBay Motors and everyone who was involved with getting the keys to the Dodge Challenger into his hands.
From the eBay Motors Team, “Happy motoring, Barney!”
