Default American Muscle car help

Right lads im planning on buying myself a new car from the states and i was wondering if the Americans on this forum mind giving me advice on my decision and if the have any other recommendations. Anyone can give an opinion but im guessung the yanks will have more expertise in the matter.
This is what im hoping to get.

It's hard to say. Looks like you are buying new and that you made your decision. From there it just depends on the dealer. Don't buy it in New York where they live under a 10% sales tax.

Make sure you check the spec on how wide these are, their turning radius, etc.

Muscle cars go fast in a straight line. They often don't turn or parallel park well.

These sorts of American cars also tend to be wide bodied, rear wheel drive, and not handle as well in rain or snow.

Congrats and good luck!

That sounds awesome. The guards around here only drive focuses.

Depends on what you want to know about them.

The only thing I can say is if you're looking for a muscle car make sure it's a real one,

there's allot of "muscle car's" that make allot of noise but have no guts.

I pretty much just looks and acts the part. It's not going to be my everyday car, rather something to bring around for a spin or to a car show. I love this dodge series. They have that American muscle feel to them but this a modern one.

I own one of these and have had it for 4 years.
I've owned other muscle cars as well and the Challenger is bigger than a Mustang or Camaro. It is a full size car and handles like one. Its turning radius is bigger than the smaller muscle cars but not huge.
Your link brought up the V6 model, is that the one you're getting or is it a Hemi V8?
Let me know.

I drive these for work. Go with the V8. The car is too heavy for a V6
