I sat in an R/T with a pistol grip shifter and I thought it felt like crap too. Not to mention the whole interior felt and looked cheap. I've also sat and driven a 2010 Mustang an I can attest to how awesome the interior quality is now.

The Challenger is a great boulevard cruiser.....that's about it. I just don't see an impressive bang for the buck aftermarket support for these cars that could be turning many of them into total monsters. I'd love to have one alongside the Stang, for sure. But I couldn't see myself dumping money into modding it. It'd be just for styling down the street.

I don't think they correct times at the 1320 for that......
I've heard a couple of rumors that the SRT is being axed along w/ all Mopar's "muscle" series. I don't have any definitive evidence to the rumor, except a buddy of mine is wrench and gets a lot of "hear say" about the industry as a whole. He also mentioned to me that the body panels for the new camaro are made of site be a separate, independent company. He heard, and remember "rumor" that the company went bust and took everything w/ them, so the camaro is being nixed after the lot of them already built are sold. Has anyone heard anything about either, either on the net or mags?
Went to a Dodge dealership today... If you drive a Challenger you had better not EVER want to change lanes because they dont have a blind spot they have a blind SIDE.. and hard to see out the rear also...The Challenger is also not a Pony car it is just a 2 door car , a Charger would be a better choice ...If we get the new 5.0 engine .. hands down the Mustang is the better choice ...With the current engine .. I would still rather have the Mustang ..

"Chevy is currently recording 0-to-60-mph sprints of about 6.1 sec or so, but the goal is to break the six-second barrier. Give us a car, guys. We'll get you the 5.9-sec run you're after. Top speed, by the way, is an electronically limited 155 mph. Yes, with the V-6. Both transmissions are superb, the automatic responding quickly to shift-button commands and the manual smooth and slick (pedals are well-placed for heel-and-toe downshifts)."
I like the new Stang, except for the black lower molding (prefer body color) and the shape of the tail lights. I especially like the reviews regarding the fit and finish, handling and overall refinement of the new Stang. Going to wait and see what Ford comes up with for the Camaro SS. Hoping for a Mach1 or BOSS 302 edition with 450 hp. Dodge needs to put the Challenger on a diet and improve the handling. Also if you look at the MT review of the 2010 V6 Camaro it sounds like Chevy did their homework with a good blend of speed, comfort, handling and fit and finish.
