It's just FF'n sexy. I see 5.0's in trafic and unless it looks like a Saleen-Shelby-500 etc, people dont really look at it. Just my observations.
If I could get any other car right now it'd be stupid hard to choose between a all black blown 392 Challenger or a new c6 all black all stick of course.
That's because Mustangs are all over the place. I notice that the Yellow Jacket SRT is not offerred on the 2013 Challengers so this must only be produced at certain times and limited production. I saw one of those YJ on the street and that got my attention.

it has to be regional when mentioning "they're all over the place".

in my subdivision, there are 5 Challengers. zero 5.0's....

there are 3 on my STREET !!!! yes, 2 of them are mine, but there is a black stripe delete RT 4 houses down.

and then a Plum Crazy RTC down the road and another black V6 on 20" viper rims with 392 spoiler.....

Houston is Challenger Country.....seeing more and more Challengers on the streets of Houston than any Mustang.

now Camaros are just as bad as Challengers......

p.s.
at my job there are 2 Challengers, one 5.0 (and that 5.0 was just purchased last week).

i can take pics if you really want me to - i don't lie on the internet.

It seems just the opposite here in California.

FWIW, mustangs are everywhere, BUT the new 5.0 mustangs are far more rare here on Long Island than Challengers are. But to be fair it is easy to tell a 2011-2013 GT from the rest, while it is not as easy to tell a 2011-2013 Challenger apart from a 2008-2010.
So your basically looking at number of cars on the road for 6 model years (Challenger) vs 3 model years (GT).

Definitely seems like a TX thing with Challengers crawling all over the place...it's just weird to see that many rolling around! You'd think that was the only v8 car you could get off a dealer lot around here.

http://www.challengertalk.com/forums/signaturepics/sigpic6929_4.gif

09 Challenger R/T automatic...4 tires, stick-on convex mirror, seats

It's not that I really needed 370 hp...but having 150+ hp riding shotgun at a moment's bidding w/o a 6000 rpm moonshot is what makes me feel like I'm in the right car for me. The roar of a v8 seals the deal!

The Google keyword is "ethanol-free gas". The truth is coming to light. Check out http://pure-gas.org/

Yeah I see a lot of Challengers out on the road. I think it's a good thing. My Challenger doesn't look like any other Challenger, while my Mustang looks just like every 5.0 out there. I have receive compliments on both cars.

On to more mods. I just ordered all of my Whiteline suspension upgrades. Now I am trying to figure out which coil overs I want to get. I really want Moton Club Racers. However, they are $5300 compared to BC Racing coil overs at $1250 ( these prices are retail and I don't expect to pay retail). When I get to a computer a will make a list of the Whiteline suspension parts I ordered.

When someone like 2011Cuda buys one as a better tool for the track, and without dissing the Challenger, I totally get that. And I enjoy reading about such mods, especially if it's on any US RWD V8.

Thanks USRWDV8. I am glad this has not turned in to a bashing as that was not the point.

Okay on to the Whiteline suspension parts ordered:

Whiteline Performance Mustang Adjustable Panhard Rod
Whiteline Performance Mustang Front Sway Bar - 33mm Heavy Duty Blade Adjustable
Whiteline Performance Mustang Rear Upper Control Arm and Mount
Whiteline Performance Mustang Lower Control Arm Relocation Brackets
Whiteline Performance Mustang Adjustable Rear Lower Control Arms
Whiteline Performance Mustang Panhard Rod Support Brace
Whiteline Performance Mustang Rear Sway Bar - 27mm Heavy Duty Blade Adjustable

Once I have the suspension done and coil overs I should be able to compare the way the two cars handle. Winter is setting in and may have to wait until spring to get the two cars out on the road. Still want to get the Moton Club Racers for coil overs, however the price is killing me because I still need to get 18" light wheels (forgestar F14) and some A6 Hoosiers. I may just get the BC Racing coil overs and race on them for a while.
