Not bad, not bad.

I'd like to see them trim 15 to 20+% off the "bulk" of the design. Thin down that heavy looking roofline. Add something like "bumpers" on both ends.

Then top if off with the most exciting electric drivetrain you can fit in the price point. Maybe have a switch to toggle between "daily driver" and "rip the tread off your tires" modes.

As it sits... Ooo... I like the square bezel theme, in fact the entire interior is great.

Ohh very nice! I really like American muscle cars. The last few years has really seen a revival of the muscle car and I love it. Don't know which one I would choose though given the choice, Camaro, Challenger or Mustang.

This is what the American car manufacturers should limit themselves to; affordable muscle cars and pick up trucks. It's what they're good at.

Too bad they only LOOK like the 60's and aren't priced like it.

I saw the ragtop version in screaming red on the cover of a magazine in the grocery store the other day. I want one! I NEED a screaming red convertible!

Then all I'll have to do is solicit volunteer drivers.

Sometimes being a disabled vet really sucks.

But I'll still take the convertible, even if I have to use it as a field car!

Cheers!

Rick... biggrin

I'm a bigger fan of this:

2011 Challenger SRT8 Green with Envy introduced by Motoman

It sure is fun to watch the progression of the design for the Camaro and Challenger evolve though.

These modern musclecars are serious, only the meanest '60s-'70s flagship big blocks could hope to keep up with them in stock form, and even then they'd probably need all sorts of tweaking and tuning. I don't know if I'd want one though, the time of the musclecar formula has passed IMO.

My dream car would be some kind of tube framed hot rod or kit car powered by some spiced up less commonly seen engine. Trust me, next to a truely lightweight car with decent power, a conventional chassis vehicle seems like a Peterbilt hauling logs, uphill.

They are pretty cheap when buying used. Almost bought a 07 SRT8 Charger last year, they are seriously fast cars.
