Default modern day USA muscle cars

Hi !

I'm thinking of buying a USA muscle cars and I'm considinerg :

Ford Mustang GT



Chevrolet Camaro SS



Dodge Challenger RT



My personal favourite is the Camaro, but I love the Challenger too (more room in the back, I have two kids).

What's your ideas, since there are hardly any of these cars in Belgium, I needs some input from americans.
thanks !!

Frenzy

I indeed love the camaro, but I'd never go for a 70's classic, 'cause it would be a daily driver and i want up to date luxury.

Thats a tuff choice man. Personally I do not like the changes to the 2010 Mustang, I liked the last body style better. But I do still like that car. I also like the Challenger R/T but its size and heft slows it down. And the Camaro is just bad ass! But its in its first year of production and you know what that means lol. So again its a tuff choice.

But I think I would go with the Camaro if I was not going to be hauling kids. Challenger if you really think your kids will be in in quiet a bit.

not into the Mustangs myself.

I have driven both the Camaro and the Charger and the Challenger. The Camaro was nice, but you have to be into GM's new dash in that car. That part bothered me, it needs an upgrade inside.
The "3 C's" all cornered for shiat. My last H2 hanlded the corners better. LOL


Man, you have some options over there for nice rides. I'd jump on the Audi TTRS in a second!! OR a deisel TTS for that matter. OR the new S4.

The quality inside is very nice on the US Spec TTS I sat in. The back seat is next to no room... But damn, that 2L Turno kicked some A$$$.

If you want performance go Camaro unless you are tall. We were trying to decide between a Camaro SS and a Challenger R/T. I took both out and I was hooked on the Challenger. The Camaro is very tight if you are over 6', and the back seat is a joke. I have a 3 year old and another kid on the way so this was our best option. I also like the more retro look of the Challenger. It does not have the performance of the Camaro stock. The Challenger SRT is pretty much equal in performance but about 10k more. I have changed a few things on my R/T and I am running 362 hp to the rear wheels. The mods were less than 1k. CAI, custom tune, and removed the center muffler.

I know about the pic, something went wrong with copying and pasting.

I like the corvette, but it's too small inside.
I do need some back room.

As y'all know, I'm obsessed with the good ol' US of A and I DO NOT WANT A EUROPEAN CAR, even if they gave it to me for free.
My wife drives a Mercedes C200 Kompressor and I don't like it. You see too much european cars over here in Europe I prefer American Power !!!

Frenzy

ps : thanks for all the info/replies so far.

I also think the Dodge is the best deal for me. I love the way it looks, options, ... and it does have some room in the back.

frenzy it depends on how big of a hurry u are in. granted im a huge mustang fan and have 4 of them. but id hold out untill the 2012 model comes out. they are in talkd of puttin the 5.0l back in it 468hp outta the gt. that car would be amazing. depends on what you are looking for. ive got 3 friends that bought the challangers and traded them in. they have lots of power on paper but when u drove them they are slow. way too heavy. i cant comment on the maro. i havnt drove one but they look good. u could always just pick up a gt500?

extreme speed / muscle ain't that important to me. I'm sure the Challenger is fast enough for me. I don't plan on driving fast anyway. Looks and inside room are more important to me. And, the fact that it's an american (muscle) car of course !

I love this car. Looking wise it is fabulous. I think if you want to purchase any car then you will definitely buy this.
Thanks
