I do like the new mustangs, but usually, me and my brother are the only challengers on street night vs 30 or more mustangs.
I hear ya, I was looking at 5.0 track pack cars, you can get them for the very low $30s, a lot of car and performance for the money. It was the wife that finally said don't get a Mustang, they are everywhere and it's mostly high school kids driving them(her generalization) but once I knew I could get a Challenger SRT8 for $10k more, and I realized just how much more car it was, it became a no-brainer. This Challenger feels a little faster than the 5.0 Track Pack I drove, but it's pretty close. It definitely feels like a better car, just WAY more substantial and everything about the interior and ride quality seems nicer.
Coming Soon: '15 Pitch Black Scat Pack A8, Appearance Group
Former: '12 Challenger SRT8 Pitch Black 6-speed, stripe delete, all options
