Im no hater! I actually like the Camaro, not so much for looks, but I love the interior. Was thinking about the ZL1, but it has a TINY trunk, just good for a Chapstick. (10 cf?) I carry test equipment and tools, so the Camaro doesn't quite do the job for me.
The coming 600hp GT500 is gonna be another great car, but I'm tired of the whole Mustang thang, since that's my daily driver now, for the last 100,000 miles. If I get the bug for more power, I'll supercharge the Viper, or wait to see what the new Viper is like. So I'm not looking for a real high horsepower car for my daily driver. Viper fills that need for me.
The Challenger looks the best of all the pony cars, has the baddest street presence, boldest styling. IT's BIG, and I like that, being 6'4", 245#. Nothing wrong with having a little comfort to go along with your great looking ride! And it's got the biggest trunk, (16 cf) this side of a Corvette (22cf), so that's great as a business car for me.
Boxster is too small, Cayman too, and no real trunk space. The Vette would make my customers think I'm charging too much, so it's not appropriate for the company image. Reasonably (!) priced Benz's are too dull looking, and the higher end models also are not appropriate for the company image, and overkill for a daily driver. I don't like Japanese cars, although I have high respect for them. I'm bored of trucks, been there.
Challengers are really cool cars, especially the 392! Fun to drive, great to look at, great performing for a fairly large coupe, and safe as well, with side curtain airbags et al, great crumple zones, etc. For my needs, the Challenger is the ONLY choice.
