Black and gold? I'm sold!

I'm not a big fan of gold, whether it be jewelery or a car's color, but there is one exception: when it partially covers a car, and there are "Hurst" emblems in all the right places. So when I saw the debut of Hurst Challengers, I started doing the math to figure out if I possessed enough items that could be sold to purchase one.
Unfortunately, I came up more than day and a dollar short, but that hasn't stopped me from dreaming about a Hurst Challenger. In case you're dreaming with me (or on your way to the bank to make a deposit), you'll want to take note of the news below:
