Hey, i'm Indian, and I'm yearning for this car too.

I've never yearned much for any muscle car (other than the late 1960's Charger, KITT and the Viper), but I really like this one!

The Viper's in un-affordable territory, for now, but this one looks very very tempting. Maybe in a couple of years . . .

Or, maybe in a couple of years the Trans-Am will return.

A big from me!

I'm not so sure about the Challenger, but I did hear that the yet unreleased Camaro has been sold out till 2010 atleast.

Dodge Challenger sales reached 2,757 units, up 6 percent over December 2008.

Chrysler LLC today reported total January 2009 U.S. sales of 62,157 units, down 55 percent versus the same month in 2008 (137,392 units), and down 31 percent from December 2008 (89,813 units).

you decide.

The Camaro has more style and more oomph factor but the challenger just asks my heart.

I guess the numbers are just going to dwindle over the coming months,thanks to the ways of this economy.
Hmm,we'll just drool when one of these passes by..

The real problem here is that major wrong decisions like the Dodge Nitro are killing the best of cars at Chrysler including Dodge Challenger and Dodge Viper. Some Canadian Analysts went on to say that Dodge Challenger completely negated the need for the current gen viper.
