there are NO creases on the side of the challenger leaving it looking round and bland.

i will give you the fact that the current challenger looks much better then the original.

hehehe...ironically, I posted that with the intent to prove that they look totally DIFFERENT from the sides. The Camaro has this poised, aggressive stance...and the Challenger sort of droops at the ends like a wet noodle.

not really they both look aggressive... but the challenger has natural lines and doesnt rely on gills and bulgy fenders too look good. look back to the famous ebodies....no gills no bulgy fenders....straight up mean....

they both look good but I like the natural lines the chally gives off instead of the camaro. I think the camaro has too much on the side for you to appreciate the car.

Woah! IMO, big difference there. Look how the back end of the Chally just kind of slopes down...makes it look even larger..and with a higher roof. hrm...

I'm one that likes the Challenger overall, but the side profile is a bit dull. It works ok with the rest of the car and the retro theme though and styling's all opinion and personal preferences though so whatever floats your boat!

Yes I forgot to put IMO. But anything about looks is purely opinion.
Yes, they do look similar. They're both muscle cars. They look similar in the same way that a chevy impala looks like a ford taurus.
I used Dragon's pic to show the lines and details on each of the cars from the side.

and it is in the worst color titanium.

btw the camaro looks very similar to the challenger from the side so might wanna look twice.
Camaro still looks 10x better from any angle

in your opinion....


learn to use that line...it helps

the challenger to me looks better cuz it doesnt clutter the entire car up with lines and fish gills and what not. The camaro looks great but to me the challenger looks better IMO.

what would we expect you to say kevin....you are waiting for your challenger to come still. its not like you havent decided which car you were going to buy yet.

Some people just like the broad-side of a barn styling that is the Challenger. Mmm, taste the bland.
