Snapped this at the gym this morning. I hadn't realized how much bigger and more retro-looking the Challenger was. Mine is the Challenger GT.

Interesting how the fenders flare out like a wide body should but Dodge slaps on extensions. You made a nice choice on your car. I like the newest Camaro style best since they returned but don’t want one.

My next toy in addition to my current car is a manual trans. Mazda Miata convertible. No manual, no car.

I had a Miata the first year they came out. Fun, fun, fun to drive - except in the snow. Definitely 2nd car material.

Thanks. You, also. I test drove the new Camaro when they first came out. Visibility was terrible and I didn't care for how it drove.

Not to mention we have extra 10 inches in the length over the Camaro and the Mustang too. I love how retro look it is as well as plenty of space inside.

On thing all the Camaros and Mustangs do right is the fender gap. They don't scream "Lower me!", like most Challengers do. A Guy

The GT sits even higher than others. :laugh2: I don't mind it. It's in keeping with the retro look.

I assume the Camaro is in the gym’s spin class while the Challenger is hitting the weight room.

I’ve owned Mustangs and Camaros over the years and seating comfort is why I skipped the 2013 and bought this car.

LOL! :laugh2: I was hitting the weights - chest and shoulder day. Not sure what they were doing. Probably just went in for the massage chairs.

Every time I see the new Camaro, I wonder if Batman is having to walk...Nanananananana, Batman!

For an even closer side by side comparison, here is my '17 T/A next to my bro's '17 Camaro SS. You can really see how much larger the Challenger's are.

Oh man, I can imagine the smack talk that goes on between you and your bro. I have a couple of co-workers, that talk smack every chance they get...and I have 5.7 which made it worse. Although they have toned it down after I installed the SC and took them BOTH to lunch in the RT. Something their camaros can't do.

Smack talk not only about cars but, take a look at the color, silver and black, you guessed it, a Raider fan! I'm a Niner fan. A lot of heated discussions 'bout football and our cars!

I actually like the Camaro but the problem for me is, its too cramped for a comfortable daily cruiser. I rented one a couple of years back and by the third day, I returned it back to the rental place and asked for a different car.

I like the looks and power of the new SS but just cant imagine trying to drive it all the time.

Seen a number of Camaros on used lots at CDJR dealerships over the years...when the term "its like driving a coffin" turns up, you know that's not a good endorsement for a Camaro.

Isn't that what they use to say about the pontiac fiero?

I had a (new) '86 Fiero GT fastback when they came out. Actually a very roomy interior. While it was low to the ground, there was a technique to getting out of it.

One of my taller friends (6' 8") noted it was one of the few cars that had both headroom and could stretch his legs out.

Small and tight is the Mazda MX-5 (Miata)
