Default CamaroMatt30..

I thought you might like this new ride. I sure would love to have one. $50-60K is just outside of my price range.

[quote]In Chicago, a Ford insider told FoxNews.com that an answer to the ZL1 was on the way. Rumor has it that the lighter ‘Stang could come packing 600 hp or more.[quote]

I'll take this instead!

The corvette ZR1 has them all beat with 638 HP not sure why they left it out. The Camaro is nice we looked at the SS2 model not long ago it just wasn't for me.

The Corvette ZR1 is more or less a "supercar" compared to the likes of Ferarri and Lamborghini instead of a muscle car per se but yeah man, the ZR1 is king of the road. I love it because it smokes all the italian ass for less than half the money.

My dream car for sure.

Yeah.....I'd take the Mustang 100% of the time over a Camaro, however these have become my favorite muscle cars. They may not be the fastest but they are by far the best looking......

The only thing about the Challenger is that they're so damn heavy and only come with an automatic...if I have a muscle car then it must be a manual!

The Challengers are great looking rides though...

Actually my friend you can get a Challenger with a Tremec TR-6060 six- speed manual transmission!

They are heavy however you could put one on a diet and shed a little poundage. One of the first things I would do would would be to replace the stock hood with a fiberglass one. Next I would look at getting it breathing and exhaling a little better......K&N airfilter with Cold Air Induction and a Cat-Back aftermarket exhaust system....Flowmasters are my favorite. Now that I'm older that would probably be the extent of my modifications. I'm more concerned about show then go now. Wasn't that way about 10-11 years ago though lol. However you'd still be running low to mid 13 second quarters at least with that which is plenty fast for a grocery getter.

I really am considering buying one of these. My wife really likes them too. However, she doesn't want me to keep my beater Dakota and she wants me to trade it or sell it. I need that truck to duck hunt out off, take trash to the dump, etc.
