Exactly my first thought.

I still think that CGM looks just "grey" to me. Nothing exciting...

As for dealer inventory, when the 2008 Challenger were being delivered they didnít spend much time on the show room floor either. 2010 is the year of the Camaro, itís even outselling the Mustang. I sincerely hope that Chevy can keep the enthusiasm and excitement up.
I was just trying to make sure the $100 bet was more fair! LOL. Like I said I'm not trying to dog V6 Camaro owners or Challenger owners. I just started reading the thread and you was talking about how your Challenger gets more stares and then at the show everyone was checking out the SRT-8 regardless all ofthe cars are bad Azz!!!!! I just remember when I think Motor Trend or Car and Driver compared the SS Camaro, Mustang GT and Challenger SRT and the Camaro SS won the contest and the next month the magazine come out stating the Challenger people were all complaining about it not being a fair fight. So I was looking at your nonscientific test and felt the same way. If GM had not come out with Camaro I would have probably been a Challenger owner myself.

Agree....less common would be white/white rims

I don't think I can pull it off and might just go white/black

Its the color for sure. Also you are in an LS. I have had my 2LT/RS/Auto CGM for about 3 weeks now and everytime I'm on the road all 960 miles driven I have got atleast one person in a Mustang, or Chally that has rolled down there windows waving or even following me until I come to a stop to talk about. Last night this lady did circles around me on the interstate in her '02 GT Mustang and finaly(scared the crap out of me) finaly she rolled down her window and was excited as heck to see it. You need new rimes and upgrade it a little. My CGM I personaly think out does any Chally in my neighborhood in the popularity contest.

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.
I think everyone thinks it is a Camaro. I envy you for having both of these sweet cars

IMO the Challengers are NOT NOT ugly. I love the back and side view. The front not so much but its still a nice looking ride.

The Camaro is HOT all around. I love how it looks from every angle.

I have been in my cousin's challenger and bless her heart its S-L-O-W!

My thoughts exactly! I'm not hating on Chally at all! I think it's sweetest thing Dodge has made in long time! I loved the Viper when it 1st come out but they need to change it up some. Same thoughts with GM and the Vette. Time for a little change. Wish G.M. Would take a little of stingray concept in T.F.2 and put it on the roads. That's one reason I love the Camaro's and the Challengers so much because there something new and hot! Both Cars are sick! I also like the fact that both cars are still rare for now. I hope Dodge and G.M. Don't pull a Ford Mustang and absolutly flood the market to were every time you turn around you see a mustang. Sorry Mustang owners Im not big fan. Seems like there are more crappy mustangs on the road than there are of nice ones. These are also my opinions and like they say opinions are like A--holes everybodys got one!!

MUCH easier said than done. Oshawa is a flex plant, meaning that they can rapidly switch between building models on different platforms. For many other GM assembly facilities, they are dedicated to building vehicles on one platform only. Starting Camaro production at another plant would require months of retooling. For example, the Lordstown Assembly plant is currently retooling to switch from Delta-I Cobalt production to Delta-II Cruze/Astra production. The Cruze is not set to begin production until April of next year. Luckily, when the Lordstown retooling is complete, it will be a flex plant along with Oshawa, giving GM more facilities to build a wider range of cars.
