I turn more heads in my Challenger vs. my Camaro
 
First let me say I LOVE my CGM LS Camaro 6M. I've had it just 2 1/2 weeks and I actually look forward to going to work now if just for the 10 mile drive. I love the power, the look, everything. Not a single regret. But...

I bought an Torred SE Challenger 10 months ago and from the start it always received more attention. People catch up to me on the freeway and circle around it all the time just to have look. Not that people haven't given me the thumbs up when I drive the Camaro, just not the same I park both cars far away from other cars in parking lots. The Camaro has yet to attract a crowd, while I've had cplenty of people walk out of their way to get a closer look at the Challenger. I think the lack of head turning has something to with the color. CGM with the black LS steel wheels looks super stealthy which I really like. My wife calls it the Bat Mobile.

In the end I'm happy my Camaro doesn't attract too much attention. If it were flashy I am sure I would have received a speeding ticket this morning on my way to work. I was going just a little too fast (as I tend to do more often now) just before sunrise when I passed a Highway patrol officer pointing his radar gun at everyone except me. If had been in my bright red Challenger at that speed I'm sure I would have been that cops primary target.

It's all good in the end, my 16 y.o. son gets to drive the (slow) flashy car and I get to fly under the radar in my own Stealth fighter.

You got a red chally against a CGM camaro. i would think that color has a lot to do with it. :popcorn:

Time for some body mods on the Maro... :)

ls doesnt have the option to RS ...
so no hids... no spoiler.. no 20 inch rims... these are things that make it a little flashier...

Challenger is nice has a different presence to it very retro plus in the torred its down right mean. Camaro has a more futuristic take on the retro themes plus CGM is blah. If they were both red then that would be a true test

I love the way the challenger looks...I really like the exterior design on it..i mean it's a pure heritage..and of course I love the way the camaro looks also..but its more of a forward move

Can't deny the Challanger is a hell of a good looking car, but those steel Wheels on a LS just destroy the looks of the Camaro.

Your is black wont pop like his red its got to be two of the same color of the different makes. If you balck camaro was in a parking lot with a red challenger and a grabber blue mustang the mustang would be the first the eye caught because of the POP of the grabber blue. if you remove the mustang the challenger would pop more because of the red etc etc ...so to be fair you must have all the same color to see which design gets more heads turning

Leave it raw for now. I really like the contrast it gives the all black. It looks a lot better in person, I swear.

Actually its the only color i think it looks good on raw, although I have to admit have seen them painted and like them less that way

The girl that drives it glared the hell out of me 2 days ago when I was getting my oil changed. She drove by when I was pulling it out with a look that said "mother f.... has the same car i have..." I just smiled.
