Didn't buy an import!

...Didn't buy a camaro either, wanted backseats that were usable with my 6ft frame in there, and the visability proved to be daunting for me as well. 2012 R/T 6spd Hope ya'll like it.

I love the looks of the Challenger ! I test drove it but for many reasons went with the Camaro. That picture with the slow down sign is hilarious.

they changed a lot of things with the 2011 and 2012, got rid of the vague steering and shifts, the shifter is shorter than the one on the m3 i used to have, has the track pack, so it actually feels similar to the mustang and camaro on the road too! I was definitely more interested in looks than speed with this one, needed a big highway car, this fit the bill.. and then some . she's a fatty

I also drove a Challenger before buying my Camaro. It does have a better backseat. 99% of the time I'm the only one in my car.
At least it's not a ricer!!! Happy Driving.

Cool nice ride. Did you get to where your going? I know the challenger is a nice ride. I was torn about getting either the camaro or a challenger. I have fond memories of a 71 challenger R/T that a friend had back in 71. I still like them. I have not driven one but have ridden in a firends R/T it is wicked. Enjoy the ride and keep us posted. My friend departs that location in July 12..

I like it, and the color is sweet. If you're happy, that's what matters. There's a reason there are so many different car models, because there are so many different people with different opinions.

I found $80 in my jeans pocket. The kid in me said "buy nerf guns and candy!" But then the adult in me said "buy vodka, nerf guns and candy!"
