    V8, RWD, muscle for about the same price.

    Chrysler has sold 15,419 Charger R/Ts since it's release just a few months ago. GM has only moved a little over 9,000 2005 Pontiac GTOs since January and out of a max. production capacity of 18,000 per year.

    That's because the Charger doesn't look like a grand prix. I still like the new GTO's though :o

    Like the chargers too.

    Maybe if the GTO wasn't shaped like the Cavalier, people would buy more of them :dunno:

    I test drove both, I bought the charger r/t. GTO had a nice drive and great interior... but I couldnt stand driving something that looks like that.. EVERYONE does a double take with the charger and it strikes up a lot of conversations. I doubt it'd be close to the same with the GTO.

    It would be a tough for me to choose between the two if I were buying one of those cars. My next car needs to be manual so that sort of rules out the Charger, unless one would appear in the next few years. If that were the case I'd take a Charger SRT-8 in black please.

    How many new Charger owners are on OT now? At least four from what I know of, and Bolicious doesn't even have his yet. :rofl:

    Why not? Speed, style, and practicality. It's a beastly creation.
