Air Force Supercars?

So I just found out about this while looking for local events.







Apparently the Air Force made these in 2009 as part of a recruitment campaign:

Taxpayer dollars at work, I guess...

Something tells me there wasn't much market research done versus a bunch of guy going 'This would be really cool!' There's probably half a million dollars between those two cars.

Sometimes the government just leaves me scratching my head.

Do you think anyone actually went in joined the Air Force solely based on seeing these cars?

If they did, it was only because they were promised they could drive those cars!

Mustang looks 1000x better than the Challenger, IMO.

Challenger looks like it could command lightning to strike the Mustang out of existence.

And now that I look at that Challenger, it looks really similar to the one in one of the Fast Five publicity stills. Same hood scoop and widebody extensions...

Meanwhile they are cutting 7-14 year sailors out of their jobs and trying to reduce benefits and zeroize bonuses and the airforce is spending all of this money on some freaking cars for "recruitment purposes" I just don't get it. Big Gov't tells the military that they need to slash spending and the first place they look is the pay for enlisted personnel and not high ups or advertising or silly recruiting efforts. Such as sponsorships in NASCAR, Monster Trucks, X Games, etc... SMH...
