Default Question of the Week: What Muscle Car Would You Buy Today?

If you were to buy a new muscle car today, taking into effect the performance and cost of the Challenger compared to the Mustang and the Camaro - which would you pick?

Guess that is obvious. Camaro would be totally out, maybe a 14, need to see it in person.

Mustang was in the decision factor when I purchased. In the end the deal I got on a left over 12 Yellow Jacket sealed the deal.

No question, the SRT8 Chally would be at the top of my list but I am holding out to see if the Hellcat Hemi ever enters production.

Challenger SRT8 would be number 1. Camaro ZL1 a close second. Hard to argue with a 580hp supercharged 6.2

Honestly, the new, refreshed Camaro doesn't look bad.

So if I were given one, and only one, it wouldn't really matter as long as they all had V8's.
I love the Mustang, Chally, and like the Camaro. lmao

I want a Challenger Classic in Blackberry Pearl with the fake old magnesium style wheels. And a 6spd manual of course.

This one is perfect with the stripes and all.

I'm gonna have to go with the Mustang. I've heard nothing but good stuff about the new 302 and I've always loved Mustangs, but the Challenger is right behind it. I could never drive a Camaro, though. They just look ugly to me. But yeah, the Mustang takes the cake, with a manual transmission, for sure, though. Only way to drive something like that.

Camaro followed closely by the Challenger. Put the Challenger on a diet and it wins hands down.

Well, you're right. They don't compare, the new stuff walks the old stuff in every single way, straight line, corners, comfort, mileage, etc.

That said, don't get me wrong, I LOVE the old stuff (see sig, and that's just getting started).

Why can't I vote for the Charger R/T? That is much a muscle car as any other!
With that said, I bought a Charger SE for the economical reasons, because that's what I could afford!

I love the SRT8 Chally and would probably go that route, but the 660hp GT500 is a beast and I love the feel of acceleration. The ugly Camaro isn't even an option for me.
