It must be the color because my Inferno Orange does the same thing your Challenger does. People crowd around it pull up alongside on the highway, come up to you and talk about what a nice car I have.

Both my Camaro and Challenger are base models, no options. That's all I wanted/needed. Besides I now have 3 drivers in the house and the Camaro was the 3 new car we have bought in the past 10 months, finances kind of dictated base model for all.

Dodge had the good sense to paint the roof ditch mouldings and throw in a set of (17") 5 spoke aluminum wheels, adding to the flash. Chevy was more practical by including the dual exhust, adding performance.

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 must drive the chally naked then. The Camaro is more of eye catcher then a boxy Challenger LOL I really do like the Challenger too. Good old American Muscle

Let's get real. Everyone looks at the Camaros. The Dodge Dealerships can't unload their over-priced/under performing cars. People vote with their wallets! People who come on here saying things like" My Nissan get's more looks" or "My Dodge Neon is better looking" are just haters. Get real..... If you really want a challenger I can tell you where the local dealership is. They have had the same four cars out there for months.

I live and work in the NE suburbs of Atlanta and I see about 1 Camaro a week during my commute to and from work. I hear folks say they are everywhere now but I'm sure not seeing them.

My wife works in the Ashford-Dunwoody area and I work in Norcross, we live in Lawrenceville. I guess we just don't travel in the same areas as I don't see very many.

I try to stay outside the perimeter as much as possible. This year was great, they built a Braves stadium 2 miles from my house. One less reason to go downtown.

There may be a Camaro on every corner, but I dought there will be a Camaro SS/RS on every corner.

But I do agree that the WOW factor of seeing a new Camaro will be long gone.
And what keeps you excited about driving your Camaro SS is modding it. If you just keep your car stock, I could see it becoming something "mundane" or boring (just like all the other Camaro's on the road).

But when people hear your 500+hp Camaro SS cruising down the street, it won't be just another car on the road.

Not for me !!!

I wish there were 10 Camaro, Challenger, and Mustangs (plus pickup trucks) on every street corner. I would enjoy the street scene on my commute MUCH more.

I get SOOOO bored with all of the lame, ugly cars driving down the road.



It is SUCH and eye relief to see something that screams -- "I AM A REAL CAR"
