I do the same thing. I see a new neon and try to chase after it to see if it's a SRT-4. I actually hope I never see one before I get mine because I may do something irrational like jump on the hood and lick the windshield or something (JOKE).
The SRT was up for 10best nomination this year but it didn't make it. I believe the reasoning was that it wasn't a good all around car as are some of the other nominees.
