    I like the looks of the Challenger better but I'm sure all trimmed out they will both be $40+k and frankly that is far too much for that kind of car, even mid-30's would be pushing it for me.

    However I said the exact same thing about the GTO and now that they are available @~$25k for a new '05 they are the perfect car...hopefully the trend continues :big grin:

    The Challenger looks like Chip Foose took a '70 Challenger and made a few changes. I think the Stang looks like ass. I'd take the Camaro. :bowdown:

    Camaro should weigh significantly less than the Challenger.

    you would think that in the last few years they would have made something alittle more powerful. Then again they had nothing to compete against either :dunno:

    I read that Dodge was thinking of putting a 6.6L Hemi in it with 500hp. Not the 425hp 6.1L

    Predictions!

    Camaro = 80,000 units sold
    Challenger = 65,000 units sold
    Mustang = 145,000 units sold.
