It's not a Camaro, but I love it.

I have been visiting every since I wanted a 5th Gen. When I bought my 5th Gen, I was never so happy. Then the day came that I had to sell it, just not practical with my family and where I live. So, I sold it for a Traverse. Yes, I went from nice sports car to, yes, everyone calls it, a SOCCER MOM vehicle. It was AWD and was roomy enough for everyone. But, I really never liked it, ok, just a little. So, fast forward to a few weeks ago. I just got tired of driving a Soccer Mom vehicle and decided I wanted back into a car. Well, by chance I stopped into a Dodge dealer and looked at the HEMI Charger. Well, I was hooked. Could not have me out of the Traverse any faster. I know, it's not a Camaro, but boy, she does move. Now, for the practical part of this car, it's AWD, so yes, has 4 doors and can seat 5 adults just fine. I have had it for 4 weeks and really love the drive, the power from the 5.7L Hemi engine. I could not be happier at this point in time. I hope you guys/gals don't hate me for getting a mopar vehicle, but Chevrolet just did not offer me a car with AWD and the V8 powered engine, room I wanted to have.

Thanks for listening.

Here are some pics of my new ride

Nice car! If I needed something bigger, I'd sure think about one of those.

Never had a problem with Chargers. Your reasons for the switch are totally understandable too! Nice color btw

Why didnt you just keep the camaro and maybe just drive it on weekend. Then you could've kept the soccer mom car for your wife.

If GM wasn't dragging their feet, you might have opted for the new SS.

If my wife shows up one day with a surprise and tells me I need something bigger and the Camaro has to go, I'm getting divorced
