    What kind of prices are you guys seeing out there? I saw one while at Road Atlanta this past weekend and they are really great looking cars...

    Not that it matters as I am up north........but our dealers were "asking" for MSRP on new ones.

    I love the retro B5 blue color they have.

    Almost everywhere has them for MRSP, Dodge is hurting right now.

    Great car. I bought a 09 SRT8 Torred Red 6 speed. I think they are such beautiful cars. I have to say, they are gutless. I have done some mods to the car and am planning on putting a supercharger on it in the near future. Definitely i'm a big fan o the car. FUN, FUN, FUN!!! I think you can buy a new one for a tad under MSRP. But finding a red SRT8 6speed is almost impossible.

    I just feel the 6-speed (+ I have "22 on there) is slow off the line. Maybe cause it's heavy? Maybe cause i'm use to driving faster??? It just feels like something is holding it back. Even after I did ALOT to the car, it just feels slow and heavy.

    It's definitely the weight and the size of the interior. It's big inside, so it's going to feel slower.

    I felt the same way about the car. It WILL roast the tires, won't it? :D

    Out of the Camaro/Mustang/Challenger the best car overall is by far the Camaro.

    BUT....

    The Challenger does look so good. It's downsides are it's weight and it's price relative to the others.

    I too looked at the Shelby GT500 Mustang and liked it too. IMHO, the Camaro is the worse of the three, not the best...

    The Camaro is definitely the ugliest of the three, that's for sure.

    Not to 90% of people who have driven/tested them. It has the best platform by far....the Mustang is ancient.

    Have you seen the back of the '10 Mustang? Horrible. And the Challenger just looks like a tank, looks nice, but it's freaking huge.

    Saw my first new Camaro on the street yesterday. Silver with black stripes.

    Yuck.

    And their was no valid reason IMHO to make revision to the current Mustang either. Those new headlights are horrible.

    Yuck again.

    I agree with you! First of all IMO the Challenger is by far the best looking of the 3. BY FAR!!!!! The Mustang is probably the better car?!?! The Camaro doesn't impress me AT ALL!

    I saw a new Camaro going down the freeway the other day. In front of me was a BMW 3 series. They passed each other so I could clearly compare them together.

    I was shocked at how much bigger the Camaro was.

    I thought that the size of the Camaro and the 3 series would be pretty close. But, the Camaro seemed HUGE next to the bimmer -- taller, wider, longer -- FATTER.

    Why did they make it so big? It looks rather clunky going down the road.

    Anyone else have this impression?

    I agree. I prefer the new Mustang over both the Camaro and Challenger, to be honest...

    The new Camaro isn't a Camaro, it's a Chevelle at best. Why'd GM do that to a Camaro?

    If you think the Camaro is huge wait until you see a Challenger. They are even bigger!

    It's a sad fact, new cars are bigger. Platform sharing does that. Dodge should have made the Challenger smaller though. It's like SUV big.
