I had a brand new Challenger in my driveway last week.One of the guys I work with bought the first one in town.......What a Hotrod!I was alone with the kids so we couldn't go for a spin but he said he'd come by in the Spring and let me take it for a spin.

As far as the originals go.....71 Chevelle SS in Tuxedo Black please.

I say the Challenger as well!!! I've always been a die hard camaro fan. I own a pretty tight 80 Z28 and previously owned a 72 camaro that was pretty sweet as well, but I'm not feeling the new camaro. IMO its hideous!! They killed the classic curves the camaro had, its all sharp and edgy now, I dunno I just don't like it.

The challenger is pretty sweet, I've never been a dodge fan....ever! but they nailed the retro muscle car look for sure. Close to the original but a little cleaner now. Almost like the look of the V6 with the lower trim package as opposed to the V8 auto. Have'nt seen a manual yet, of course the SRT-8 version is where its at.

^^^^Nice Camaro, my mom talks about when she was in high school that they went to go buy a car for her and her sister who is two years older and on the lot she saw a yellow camaro that she fell in love with not for sure if it had black racing stripes but sadly they never got it, instead they got a slighty puke green pontiac or something, not a camaro

I hope to one day own one of the classics i mentioned, and any supercar right now such as a Lotus, Porsche, Ferrei, Pagani, Lambo, or a cheaper course of a Mitubishi Lancer Evo (perferably Evo VII) and of course a Double Cab Tacoma

Yeah...
V-8 RWD! For the money it's a really good deal. It's performance is almost equal to the Dodge and alot less money. I've seen them up close, it's a damn sharp car, IMHO!
Oh, and BTW, that's a fine ass Camaro ya got there!

I'm actually going to buy a G8 in a couple of years for wifey. I'm just debating if I should get the V-8 or be concerned with fuel prices and get the V-6.

Well, not much! V-8=15/25 or V-6=17/25
There is a three thousand dollar difference in price though.

Out of the choices, a Camaro. It's a sleek looking car.
When I was about 17 I took one like this only blue for a test drive, 396 big block, 4 speed. I got pulled over by the Mass. State Police running it through the gears. That was about the extent on my muscle car experience. I'd love a chance to get one today. Nice pic Derek.
