And this line of reasoning is where you'd be wrong. It's not about the so-called competition. There are very many that have bought an RT in 09,10,11; then, went to a Stang or Camaro becuase they...

IMHO, U are a continual whiner & agitator. Ur posts are mostly negative about one thing or another. U don't like the hp of a 5.7? Put ur money where ur mouth is. Speed costs, how much U willing to...

I bought mine because I liked the way it looks & drives, it had reasonable power when new, and it had sentimental value ( had a 70 T/A Challenger in B 3) . I put a S/C on because I felt it could use...

This is the same attitude as with the "no-tuning" for the 392's a few years ago. "Gotta have it right now or I'm just going to bust!!!" Everything works out in the end. There are more important...

So, basically, you were going to buy a new car regardless? Good things come to those who wait. BTW, both your cars are great cars. Used to be into Vettes, but getting too old and fat!

OP, my advice is to get what you feel you can live with. Many on here forget there were 6 cylinder 70-74 Challengers. They would drool for a 270hp T/A Challenger and make fun of a 305 hp SXT. Go...

Seems to me, you made the decision to buy, not on the car, but the numbers? One can hardly compare a Challenger to a Corvette or vise versa. So, are you trying to state, because the 15 Challenger in...
