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.
14 Jeep Wrangler Sahara 2 Door
12 Challenger SRT 392 Yellow Jacket Kenne Bell Supercharged among others.

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

2003 Dodge Ram 2500 5.9 Cummins HO-NV5600-6.7 swap
1970 Challenger 318/auto, soon to be 390 stroker
1968 RoadRunner 440/auto. 1968 Satellite 318/auto on the rotisserie

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.
