What car would you pick...

So my brother got accepted to a pharmacy school and the deal was that if he successfully did it, he would get to pick his first brand new car.
Which one would you consider getting..the gt500, or the zl1 now or having to wait abit of time for the GTR(Finding the right prices)? It would also be his DD btw.

The ZL1 and GT500 are huge gas guzzlers. But, they are more affordable at under 60000, GTR is around 100 grand. All depends on his financial situation.

the Camaro and the Stang are both great cars and good looking. The Nissian is a good car too but, is ugly IMO. The rear is nice but they never got the nose right even after re-designing it. So if given those choices I'd go ZL1.

Neither. I'd take the cash equivalent if I could and buy an ss and invest the rest for retirement. That's just me though, or I'd buy a used one...I never liked having my parents buy me anything other than a dinner every know and then.

ZL1. I actually really like the GT500, but I am still a sucker for the ZL1. And yeah, a GTR appointed similarly to a GT500 or a ZL1 is going to be north of $90K.

But then I would ask them to hold the favor until after school is done. I don't even like driving mine to work, and all of the people at the office know to stay away from my car. I'd be a wreck driving a ZL1 to school for 3-4 more years.

I am kind of a big baby though

You're asking this on a Camaro forum. Go ask on a Mustang forum and a GTR forum too. Report back with your findings.

That's a decent down payment on a house when he is done with school.
