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.

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

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.

[QUOTE=2SSARME;913338]Gimme my 100$. [/QUOTE

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

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

I just smiled.

She was probably pissed that she wasnt exclusive, oh well in a year no one will be ya know, good hot cars get purchased, isnt that the point lol

Thats lame if i had a camaro and I saw you I would wave and honk the horn at you maybe even flash the lights. Whats with all the hate towards al the cars same and different. Crap when i see a nice challenger, porsche , stang, ferrari etc etc i let them know

I think any of the two vehicles would turn my head, only because I don't see them on the streets much. I hear a lot of talk about the Camaro and the Challenger. Must say I hear a lot more positive opinions on the Camaro. Enjoy your rides az2009se.

They all have there pluses although it seems the challenger has the least out of the 3 and the camaro and Mustang swap blows back and forth but thats how its always been and thats what keeps these two at the top of the muscle car heap

I drove by him real slow after the cop pulled him over and laughed :P I think he's still looking for my car to scratch it hahhaah.
NOW thats classic lol!!

in terms of attractiveness.. teh LS is by far the worst looking of all teh 2010 camaros (even tho its still great)... the only people i know who didnt spend the extra $1500 or so for the 1LT are the people who are doing some serious mods to it and wanted a good template...

my RJT 2SS/RS with 21in rims has been turning heads left and right everytime i take it out
