You are in the Ford Mustang
What is this discussion about?
Dodge Challenger, Chevrolet Camaro, Ford Shelby GT500, Coupe

This would be such a hard choice to pick from if I had the money to go out and do it. The SS is a gorgeous car, but the nostalgia of the Challenger would be so hard to pass up. The GT Shelby has loads of power, I don't trust Ford that much. That being said, it would probably be my first love, the camaro.

The 2009/10 Mustangs don't do it for me. You have to get to the 2011's to make me enjoy the ride more, V8, then we're talking! 2009 Mustangs, the seats were harder back then, the rumble under your butt a little too uncomfortable for me. I much prefer the 2011/12 Mustangs as they have fixed the ride to be much more comfortable on your butt. You have to go to Shelby seats for the Mustang seats to be completely comfortable I find. Camaro I never really look at because I'm not a huge fan of Chevy with the exception of the Corvette. I find the interiors to be on the chintzy (sp?) side especially after a little bit of wear. The new Camaro's blind spot is also very bad. Now...the Challenger. I just drove a 2011 and 2012 today not expecting to being more impressed then the Mustang GT test drive I took. I have to say, I had a lot, A LOT of fun driving the Challenger. So much that I am trying to purchase one as we speak.
Mind you, I have been test driving cars for the past 2 months straight. Outside of the Mustang GT, which I loved, but which was also out of my price range, the Challenger is the only car that comes close, even with just the V6. I drove both the V6 and the V8. The V6 isn't as bad as you may think, you just have to work it harder accelerating then the V8 obviously. But the torque is there regardless. Very surprised and impressed! So don't know if that helps, but I had to tell someone!

Isn't the V6 Mustang faster than the V6 Challenger?

Technically from everything I know, yes, the Mustang is faster. However, even though both are super fun to drive, I personally enjoyed the torque of the Challenger better. I felt that the V6 Mustang was a little 'clunkier' then the V6 Challenger even though the Challenger has a bigger body. I really prefer to go to the GT when it comes to the Mustang, but financially I cannot afford it right now. So, for the V6 the Challenger wins out.
