She was probably pissed that she wasnt exclusive, oh well in a year no one will be ya know, good hot cars get purchased, isnt that the point lol

Thats lame if i had a camaro and I saw you I would wave and honk the horn at you maybe even flash the lights. Whats with all the hate towards al the cars same and different. Crap when i see a nice challenger, porsche , stang, ferrari etc etc i let them know

I think any of the two vehicles would turn my head, only because I don't see them on the streets much. I hear a lot of talk about the Camaro and the Challenger. Must say I hear a lot more positive opinions on the Camaro. Enjoy your rides az2009se.

They all have there pluses although it seems the challenger has the least out of the 3 and the camaro and Mustang swap blows back and forth but thats how its always been and thats what keeps these two at the top of the muscle car heap

Funniest part: The cop was at the light to his right. Took off after him. I drove by him real slow after the cop pulled him over and laughed :P I think he's still looking for my car to scratch it hahhaah.
NOW thats classic lol!!

in terms of attractiveness.. teh LS is by far the worst looking of all teh 2010 camaros (even tho its still great)... the only people i know who didnt spend the extra $1500 or so for the 1LT are the people who are doing some serious mods to it and wanted a good template...

my RJT 2SS/RS with 21in rims has been turning heads left and right everytime i take it out

Please don’t take this the wrong way, but getting looks on the road doesn’t mean much. Drive 60 MPH with a space-saver spare mounted and see how many looks you get. A better test is to take it to an auto event, such as a car show or cruise in where the spectators will know what they are looking at.




These pictures are from a locate cruise in, here in Chester VA, where I conducted a totally unscientific experiment.
Three cars, three colors, one night…

1) The red Camaro RS has Yenko type stripe which drew attention and questions.
2) The silver Camaro RS blended in and went almost un-noticed.
3) The year old Challenger SRT8 drew the most attention and largest crowd.

Factors: Color and options play a major role in turning heads. I would describe the two Camaros as twin sisters, however the red one is wearing make-up and a mini-skirt.
The Challenger is still rare around here, I see about 5 Camaros for every Challenger on the road, so uniqueness does plays a role.

I think I could take your $100 if we meet in a Kmart parking lot and I’ll bring bright red Nissan Cube.

One final note, the comments people make about the cars are very different too. With the Challenger you’ll hear remarks like, “Dodge got the design right” The Camaro on the other hand, will get some remarks about what they don’t like or what they would change. This cruise in gets a fair amount of first generation Camaros and these owners have pretty strong opinions on the Camaro design. While this is based purely on my personal experiences as an owner of both cars, if you read the post on this site you will see that these types of remarks are fairly common. The Challenger will get “pinged” for being too big or looking fat, but most of the time people like its’ looks. As for the Camaro there appears to be some disagreement about the design. Either way they are both great cars and we are very fortunate that we to have the opportunity to own either of these cars.

the only... and i repeat ONLY reason the chally looks ok is because of its retro look that is like a modern version of something from the 60s... it fails in comparison to the styling of the camaro in every asspect, however they are definatly more rare than the camaro already (atleast it seems lke that) so thats why they will get attention...

in my opinion, the chally is just way to bland

Just wandering if at the cruise were the SRT-8 got all the attention over the twin sisster camaros did the sisters big brother SS show up? Not trying to bash any V6 owners but sorry if I was at a car show or meet I would be asking more questions and paying more attention to the muscle of the show! Both cars in my opinion are awesome cars! I just don't see how your test was very fair? Don't know that's just me. Also like someone was stating the Challengers are much more rare on the road. At least were I live. I can't figure it out. It's not like there are not usually 4-5 Challengers at local dodge dealership lot at all times. Can't say that bought the new Camaro's were I'm from. As soon as they get unloaded off the truck they are in some ones garage. I do have to give props to Dodge though they did do the Challenger right but I just don't think they get more attention than the Camaro. I still can't go anywere in my IOM SS and not get people just staring and asking me all types of questions and taking pictures. Regardless they both sweet sweet rides! Congrats to the lucky people who get to enjoy the best of both worlds! That would be nice having a Chally and a Camy!
