camaro & mustang forums ( talk )

just curious.. there is alot of chatter on the challenger forum here about gt500's and zl1 cameros. do you think the other forums talk about our cars at all.

i would venture to say not but i could be wrong.

They do. Everybody talks about the competition. Ours gains a lot of heat on other forums for being a big heavy but sexy beast.

They have kill threads that we come up in. Truthfully im a gm guy. I dont hate any performance vehicle. I do dislike the flamers and people that bash what they dont understand.

Only real way to ever compare. Car is stock for stock. Because with all amounts of money any car can be fast. Its those that build fast cars just to beat others that sound sad.

You should always build and buy a car for yourself and nobody else. This is why I have a challenger over a camaro. If my friends couldnt ride in the back easily and comfortably like they did in my four door cars then I dont want it.

Haha, thats a long answer to a simple question but..... oh well

They don't because they are all in here trying to convince everyone their car is superior.

Nah. We're not even blips on their radar. I honestly think they lump in the same category as hummers and jeeps.

2012 Challenger...totally NOT stock.

**Apologies in advance for such a long-winded response. I obviously either have too much time on my hands -or an "axe to grind, lol."

Without actually having anything but common sense to back up my claim…I’m virtually certain that any/all competitor forums include cross-talk that occasionally includes comment s regarding the Challenger. In addition, I feel it’s quite safe to say that those comments more than likely include the occasional “slam” directed at these larger, heavier and allegedly “underpowered,” vehicles.

Even if we travel back through the previous decades, back to the 60’s when muscle cars flourished, these rivalries was “alive and well.” Differences, however, were expressed verbally in those days, and many times escalated beyond a civil debate to heated arguments and even the occasional physical “rhubarb.” The participants in these cases of extreme differences of opinion were most often older teens –or- young men up to and including 25 year olds (+/-). Generally older fella’s that really gave a damn would abandon the bravado and boxing so as to proceed to the track to settle their differences; not altogether unlike young men who would meet at dawn for a duel, a century earlier.

As a matter of fact, a number of overly passionate competitors were often as concerned with the attributes, reputation and speed of their cars that that even their lady friends had to settle for a role as “second fiddle” to the machinery, lol.
As I consider my words here, considering the op’s initial question, as well as reminiscing over age-old “car wars,” it struck me a long time ago that virtually all of this verbal competition, while seemingly never-ending, is quite unnecessary.


Because….is it not fair to say that each of us, for example, having spent an equivalent sum of money for our Challengers could have just as easily purchased an equivalent offering from the competition; that is, could we not, in fact, just as easily purchased a camaro or mustang?

Is it not reasonable to assume that anyone here that decided to bear the cost burden of a near-$40K price tag for a well-equipped R/T –or an additional $10K+ for an 392-based SRT, could have easily made that same investment in a mustang GT or Camaro SS? Note that I am excluding the competition’s more exotic offerings as there is no equivalency currently available in the Dodge lineup to counter the GT500 or Camaro “Z-series” with regard to price or performance; the Viper being dismissed for obvious reasons.

That being said, isn’t much of this of all this “Brand X vs. Brand Y” skirmish just a bit silly.

Conclusion: Buy, drive and enjoy whatever you want to as long as you “break the bank” doing it. Let the naysayers complaints fall on deaf ears, and most importantly……there are far more important issues and higher priorities facing all of us, regardless of what we drive.

Just my two.....uh 10 cents worth !!

im on the GT500 forums...the Challenger isn't even a blip on their radar....never discussed

the ZL1= constantly

The Challenger has fallen behind and has had nothing new in 2-3 years....while the Camaro/Mustang have had something new every year.....why would they talk about the Challenger?

it is interesting to see and here people and how they compair cars.. that will always happen. I just find it funny lol.. mine is faster than your's type of attitude when it comes to various cars. again there will always be something faster, louder ect. my main thing behind the question is, do you think IF they are discussed on other forums they look at it as a clunky lead weight ( ahh DODGE JUNK ) or hey cool car they just need to get with the times a bit, so to speak.
