Anyone ever notice?

Anyone ever notice that every car dealer I drive past has a used Challenger on display while I hardly ever see used Camaros? Just some food for thought...

I wouldn't get too excited. Apex Paul is shopping for a Camaro right now and has looked at about a half dozen 2010 and 2011s with less than 5000 miles.

I do notice a lot, I think most people just get rid of cars (esp v8s) b/c they cant afford them.

humm....here in redlands CA, I have yet to see a used camaro at any non chevy dealership. maybe its all about logistics and demigraphics, some cities or states a lot, other areas not so much.

Now!
I can say honestly say, i see a lot of used 2005 and up mustangs, and challengers.

Great news, if it costs me $5,000 or less to get into a V8 next year, Ill probably go for it.

I see more used Mustangs and Camaros where I am. Rarely see a used Challenger here. If there is one, its gone pretty soon. Ive had 3 Challengers and after I traded them in, they were gone within a few weeks.

Challengers are cool enough. I'm livin' the dream/fun too... SS and a Boss.

In my area, I see lots of used Camaros at dealers more than Challengers. And due to the fact the Mustang has been out since '05, they're also readily available at any given marquee dealership. Most of these pre-owned big 3 models are V6 versions though.

I bought my camaro used at dealer and I bet they had at least 10 to choose from. Was gonna buy a new one but dealer had the one I bought way cheaper than a new one with only 15,000 miles on it and one owner. They even certified it. My used car came with better bumper to bumper warrenty than the new ones.Also bought my wife a new 2012 charger r/t the same week from same dealer

My Volvo dealer had a used ZR1 that had 120 miles on it. Couple traded it in. I was thinking that was quick.

HAHA

I asked the finance manager about it. He said the couple that traded it in keep cars a couple a months and trade them constantly. Must be nice. They also had a brand new Challenger SRT8 on the lot with like 2k miles.
