1. ND, without a doubt. Even if the ugly trike was half the price.

2. Used Corvette, pocket the cash.

FWIW if I had to buy one it would be the charger, because it at least has the practicality of a huge boat.

I drove a 2010 Challenger R/T with the 6-speed. Freaking hated it. Horrible seats, horrible shifter, horrible brakes, horrible steering. I seriously felt like I was driving a pickup truck. Interior felt cramped, back seat is worthless. Power was lacking, my '05 GTO would have smoked it.

The hemi sounded pretty alright, though, I guess. Just hated it. More power would just make it a faster ball of worthlessness in my opinion.
