I have been a diehard Chevy and Corvette guy all my life. My friends are giving me an awfully hard time now with a Viper and Challenger in the garage with the Vettes. Dodge is making fantastic cars. The Challenger just checked all the boxes after looking at Camaros and Mustangs. The Challenger is our daily and trip car. Neither of it's competitors even have a usable trunk. Hard to beat the retro looks of the Challenger. I am impressed with the build quality as well.
Yup! You pretty much describe me as you've described yourself.
My Corvette shares a Garage with my Challenger too.
Long time Chevy guy.....lot's of Camaros too. Still have my '69 Z/28 as well as the old Corvette. Long gone are the Chevy trucks we've used on the small farm we own here in rural New Hampshire. Today a Ram Truck gets that all important job of winter driving and trips to the grain store, dump and Home Depot/Tractor supply runs done.
It's hard to look at Chevy today......and I mean that quite LITERALLY.
I compare the performance of a new Camaro or Corvette to Ford and Chrysler's offerings and it's a serious condemnation of what has happened to styling because honestly if they weren't so far from what I think a car should look like I'd likely own Chevy's today too same as in the past.
The Corvette is just incredibly good and the Camaro is light years ahead of the Challenger and Mustang in terms of it's Capabilities as performance car.......the trouble is I just can't imagine ever warming up to homely styling.
John Delorean once said, "I can sell a young man's car to an old man but I can't sell an old man's car to a young man"
While that's still very true ......I think it could use an update for the modern world of performance cars.
I think you can sell the best looking car that doesn't bring the very best performance in a category but you'll always struggle to sell the best performing car when it's the worst looking in the Category"
Chevy needs new people in their styling department. Makes me wonder how many Aztec people are still running around in the halls of the General.
