Enjoy them while we can.
    I also agree on pricing, I paid 45k for my daytona and 40k for my scat in '16.. can't beat what you get for these prices compared to the average whatever BS car...
    also, if you notice germany already dropped hammers on big v8's and now all, or most, AMG's are twin turbo smaller motors, same with the M series of BMW... while they produce the same HP and speed, they don't feel or sound the same... Keep them coming FCA/Dodge!!!!! I hope these continue for a long time
    Man you are bringing back some memories. I graduated high school in 89. I have had an 87 mustang GT and a 90 LX 5.0. I enjoyed those cars. My older brother bought an 87 Grand National brand new in 87. He let me drive it and I couldn't believe at 16 that a V6 would run like that. Still to this day, I love those cars. They were rockets. I also agree that these 392s are killer bang for the buck rides.

    well i to was looking for something to have as fun summer car, i have a 2017 ram for my dd, and i was looking at this 2010 corvette with only 15thousand miles on it. my older son has a 2007 corvette with the zo6 package and when i go and visit him in florida he always picks me up in it. so that being said i like the vettes and all but it came down to what i really wanted and the pluses i get for it. so i choose a2018 scat pack over the corvette due to the convienence of the 4 doors and the space and not having to keep getting into a car so low and the ride is alittle better,plus i`m getting old (49) and staring to want the comfort features more than just the speed and rough rides.

    I had a '08 Vette...really enjoyed it for the four years I had it. Traded it for my first Charger and have not looked back.

    They are fantastic sports cars, but I love my Scat Pack...you cannot beat it for the money and I love having more room.

    Dad’s got an 08 that I’m getting as payment for restoring his bronco. I can’t wait. The charger is a blast but the vette is something on a different level. It serves a different purpose. The scat at full throttle makes me smile but the vette makes me giggle like a school girl. I’ve got big plans for that car.

    I had a heads cam stall converter 06 vette that I daily drove in WI for years, with two sets of wheels/tires. It was a fantastic daily driver because the hatch area had 20 cubic feet of storage, that’s a lot more than my scat challenger trunk. It was great I snow and ice with 18/19 snow tires.

    I could fit my wheelchair behind the seats and quite a few groceries from wholesale clubs. The major drawback was the ground clearance in winter so heavy fresh snow greater than 3-4 inches required waiting for snow plows to plow the street. Or I became a snow plow for the city of Milwaukee. The 6.4 Challenger/charger is a great compromise though with vette like straight line performance, braking and it’s easier for large folks or old folks to get in and out of. I liked how my vette fit me like a glove. It, along with my c4, were probably the easiest cars to get in and out of in 30 years of being paralyzed. I’ll have to get a c6 or c7 again someday. So easy to mod and make stupid fast on a stock bottom end.

    Well at least we’re both old hahah. I graduated 89 also. Grand nationals would show up at the track and destroy us all lol.
