Thinking of selling my 2012 Challenger SRT8 and joining the Camaro club.

Just as the title says, thinking about joining the club. Test drove an inferno orange 2013 SS/RS today and it was nice.

Love the SRT8 as it is a torquey beast but the Camaro is awesome too.

Decisions, decisions.........

Changing things up would be nice. They are just now figuring out how to tune the SRT8 392s on the 2011 and newer models but there is just something about the Camaro that I love.

heck with what the trade-in value of your SRT-8 might be if its still in excellent condition with low-moderate miles, you could probably pick up a 1LE

I had a 2010 Challenger, now drive a Camaro. Both are cool cars. The Camaro is definately the best handling pony car. Challenger is a bit more retro, the Camaro is a bit more sporty. Hated to give up the Challenger, but love my new Camaro.

I thought of going for a Challenger, ad even a GT500 I'm holding on for a 427 Camaro for 2014. It may be wishful thinking but I think its going to happen. If it doesn't I'll just keep my car.

I love all three cars (Challenger, Mustang, and Camaro) but prefer the Camaro the most.

Never been a Mustang fan though I respect the heritage. I am just glad we have some muscle cars to choose from these days.

I think he meant better power to weight ratio...
Never mind this,
I didn't realize it was a 392...
