Arrow no more camaro for me... today i pulled the trigger... NOT

*update*
the deal got cancelled the following monday (two days later)....



yep... today i signed the papers for a 2009 dodge challenger r/t manual with 2 miles on it. it still had the plastic seat protectors etc. hemi orange, 20" wheels, hood/fender stripes, sunroof, sirius. the employee pricing (a little under 31k, MSRP was $34,235), 0%/48mo and $1000 rebate offer was just too good to let it pass by. and the timing was perfect too because i just moved and had a rental car for three weeks now. i was looking for a beater until the camaro hits the showroom, but that would have been too much of a hassle... i'm picking up the car on monday.

don't hate me, i'll and to every camaro i see!

It's a beautiful car. Sat in one today at the Philly show. But, I'm in no hurry and will patiently await my Camaro

I guess we'll be seeing you at the track. It's good that you bought such a great alternative. We hope you'll stay around the site to keep us up to date on your Chally.

Sounds like you got it. Just kidding. Enjoy your ride. Although it isn't a Camaro, I think we have to acknowledge all the retro muscle designs. As I said before, if it wasn't for them we might not have the Camaro.

Have fun with the R/T.
The Challenger is a good looking car, if there was no Camaro coming.... I ALMOST drove a Challenger R/T today.... as has been said on here, the dealer (salesman) is an idiot... It turned out to be an SE, with $10,000 dealer add on sticker, they did put on some REALLY nice wheels... but $36k for a 3.5 v6 with REALLY nice wheelsI just sat in it, look at the sticker... and walked away. Reno Nevada may NOT be the place to buy...
The Chevrolet dealer is fond of those dealer markup tags as well, even on 4 cylinder Colorados. I will most likely be going back to Texas to buy my Camaro. Unless I go to Newman
