    Looking for something to pair with the Tundra to have fun with. Really interested in the Dodge Challengers....

    Wont be buying new, have a budget of around $20k. Should I be looking at something else? Thoughts fellas?

    I like the RT (also comes in AWD- anything above does not) but you'll get an older generation (less power)

    How about an older Camaro? (v8, of course)

    AWD is ideal, for sure. Any idea what the RT's come with? V6?

    Awd fun car? Subaru WRX? I had a WRX STi for a few years and it was incredibly fun. Plus a decent daily driver.

    C5 Z06. One of the best bang for your buck cars out there.

    https://cosprings.craigslist.org/cto/d/corvette/6237317537.html

    https://denver.craigslist.org/cto/d/corvette-low-miles/6239560535.html

    And if you really want to blow the budget.....get into a C6 Z06

    https://denver.craigslist.org/cto/d/velocity-yellow-corvette-lz/6215674401.html
    https://denver.craigslist.org/ctd/d/chevrolet-corvette-dr-cpe/6228179713.html

    This guy doesn't even know what he has, so you could probably get 30K for this bad boy. I wouldn't even worry about the miles. I used to do some rather "sporty" driving with a C6 Z06 that had 180K miles on it and it ran awesome.

    Also, not a fan of any pop-up lights. Glad they went away with those :)

    Rented a Challenger in Hawaii. Worst blind spots I have ever had in a vehicle. Couldn't wait to get rid of that thing. Cool looking car but it sucked to drive. Can only imagine a Camaro would be similar to drive.

    The Camaro is very similar with the blind spots.
