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.
I think everyone thinks it is a Camaro. I envy you for having both of these sweet cars

IMO the Challengers are NOT NOT ugly. I love the back and side view. The front not so much but its still a nice looking ride.

The Camaro is HOT all around. I love how it looks from every angle.

I have been in my cousin's challenger and bless her heart its S-L-O-W!

My thoughts exactly! I'm not hating on Chally at all! I think it's sweetest thing Dodge has made in long time! I loved the Viper when it 1st come out but they need to change it up some. Same thoughts with GM and the Vette. Time for a little change. Wish G.M. Would take a little of stingray concept in T.F.2 and put it on the roads. That's one reason I love the Camaro's and the Challengers so much because there something new and hot! Both Cars are sick! I also like the fact that both cars are still rare for now. I hope Dodge and G.M. Don't pull a Ford Mustang and absolutly flood the market to were every time you turn around you see a mustang. Sorry Mustang owners Im not big fan. Seems like there are more crappy mustangs on the road than there are of nice ones. These are also my opinions and like they say opinions are like A--holes everybodys got one!!

MUCH easier said than done. Oshawa is a flex plant, meaning that they can rapidly switch between building models on different platforms. For many other GM assembly facilities, they are dedicated to building vehicles on one platform only. Starting Camaro production at another plant would require months of retooling. For example, the Lordstown Assembly plant is currently retooling to switch from Delta-I Cobalt production to Delta-II Cruze/Astra production. The Cruze is not set to begin production until April of next year. Luckily, when the Lordstown retooling is complete, it will be a flex plant along with Oshawa, giving GM more facilities to build a wider range of cars.

I want to see G.M get out of there slump but I hate to sound stingy to all people still waiting on there Camaros but it is such an awesome feeling now with there being so few camaro's out there! I totaly agree with the cruising part though! I just hope they build what has been ordered and no more. Don't want to see hundreds of them on car lots!

Again, much easier said than done considering the current state of the economy and GM's financial situation.

Just as a little opposing anecdote...I bought a Camaro, and my brother bought a Challenger R/T. In June we met up in OH visiting family. We went on a cruise to the beach, and on the freeway my brother was driving behind me most of the way. He said he saw all kinds of heads turning to look at the Camaro, and his car got pretty much ignored. He seemed a little put off his car was already getting ignored when it used to be the hottest thing around, and he's only had it less than a year.

Personally I think they're both great looking cars.. Challenger seems pure retro while Camaro is more a blend of modern and retro. I think that maybe the 'transformers effect' gives the Camaro a little more celebrity status towards getting it noticed on the road. For the record, both our cars are a dark color (IBM and black), so I doubt that factored in a whole lot...although I admit I have white stripes and he has none, which does make the car kind of jump out at you. In your case though I'm sure the coloring may have had more of an impact...color does make a huge difference in getting your car noticed (both a good thing and a bad thing, since some of the attention is unwanted...ie from the man w the radar gun!) I bet I could spot a yellow Camaro from a mile away, whereas I might only notice a CGM Camaro when it's a few hundred feet.

come on now fellas, the challenger is a good looking ride. i like the styling of both camaro and challenger. challenger's got that classic look while camaro is more modern, but both are very nice. if i had to pick though, slight nod to the challenger... just because i prefer the classic look

My question is why buy two slow cheap cars (at least the chally is slow) and not just get the top of the line ss or srt? I would only get an srt if I had to get a chally... The car is kinda blah IMO and overpriced

camaro ftw

Paint your Camaro VR and put some stripes on it. Then watched the heads turn and the camera's come out.

It's got to be the colors Bro, red will always get more attention than gray. My ABM SS gets more attention than I would like, stopped twice in the month and a half I've had the car.

A 400hp Camaro SS/RS will never be just another car on the road. I can't see anyone having a sad face driving a Camaro SS (now or 5 years from now).
