You can't go wrong with either, and they each have their own Pro's as others here have stated. Just get one!

Yes the warranty is transferrable.
The Corvettes are beautiful but you do fall into them and then have to climb out when at your destination.
Where are you from?

As I have grown older, I've learned that pleasing everyone is
impossible- but pissing everyone off, is a piece of cake.

Good to know, thanks. I'm in Spokane, WA and my dad is a little north of me. We've found a couple we're interested in with 8000-14000 miles on them. My dad test drove a R/T and said it was just a little flat on top compared to his vette but he really enjoyed how solid the car felt. The tires were flat spotted bad and he said that the vibrations through the steering wheel and drivetrain ruined the test drive for him so he cut it short. Theres not a lot to pick from in our area at the moment so we're looking at probably heading to Seattle or Portland. It won't be the first time we've had to do that.

I saw a 6.1 on youtube with a cam change that sounded like it was from the 70's, what would that cost to do?

SRT or R/T? Hmmm they are both nice and have their own plus and minuses. More power or better gas mileage? Less filling or tastes great? I have a 6 speed R/T that I’m perfectly happy with, it’s not heavily modded, drives and rides nice, and when I take a trip on the highway I getting 26/27 MPH.
Sounds like you are truly committed to purchasing one and if you plan on modding the engine from Jump Street you might as well go for a used Challenger, this is my opinion.

Ok so after researching and convincing my dad we are going to wait and pocket cash and get a 392. Either a used one or closeout even if that means waiting up to two years. As much as that sucks I think we will be rewarded big time by our patience. Thanks and bye for now!

Like other guys are saying here, Dodge just released info that a "core" SRT model will be available soon. for around 38k, with some dealing, you should be able to bring it down to 35, makes no sense to mark up or not deal on a "Core" model, but i'm sure some retard dealer will try. There are plenty, that will give you that deal on a brand new 392 in just a few months. You can go order a plum crazy one today, 500 bucks down. DO IT!!! lol

....and that would have made him sick to his stomach to get the 6.1l for about 30-32 and know he could have had a 6.4 for 35k. I'd still like to get some options so we'll just weigh it out when the time comes.

I've always let my emotions and passion decide in my heart what I want, and then let my pocketbook dictates what I buy. A Challenger is a Challenger 1st, before it gets specific.
