    ... And you've got 3 options:

    1) 13-14 GT500
    2) Gen 5 Zl1 Camaro
    3) Hellcat (either Charger or Challenger)

    My 03 Terminator is great.

    It's not driven much at all and it's been a great car that I plan to keep

    However, if I was looking for another fun car to have, which of those 3 and why?

    Why no used GT350 on your list? If it were me it would be a 13/14 GT500, but I would have to at least drive a Hellcat and GT350 first.

    Do you prefer a manual or auto? If no preference, I'd go GT500. If auto, I'd go Challenger Hellcat.

    The stock blowers on the LSA engine(ZL1) have bearing issues, I've heard it's the same with the hellcat blowers. Not sure about the latter. If you plan on an aftermarket unit, then the above doesn't matter.

    5th-gen Camaro has poor visibility. Pretty hefty weight, but not as fat as those Hellcats. The Mustang has the typical hard plastic interior found in S197s.

    GT500 is the head-turner out of the 3, IMHO. The rarer Trinity engine is a plus.

    I'd have to say the GT500, but I'd give the Charger HC a shot at a test drive.

    Of the three, I would get a C6Z and slap a blower on it. 750rwhp.

    For me, the 5th gen ZL1 would be at the bottom of that list.

    Shelby or Hellcat. what are your needs? any children? Charger for sure then. Sometimes I wish I had that instead of my 13. Its cumbersome to stuff my kids in the back of it.

    GT500 gets my vote. Mostly because it's a goal car for me.

    If you want a manual GT500.

    If you want an auto, Hellcat

    That'd be an easy choice for me if it was just to be a fun car: GT500. You should really consider a C6Z06.

    Manual Hellcat Challenger. Or I'd make a healthy down payment on a C6 ZR1.

    97-99 Viper GTS, get a piece of history while you can. Stock forged internals.
    11+ 5.0, Auto, Stall with some Moon Boost.

    Cobra for fun, Viper for corner carving, 5.0 on moon boost for dragging ass. Trifecta. 50k well spent, and the viper should start appreciating soon enough.

    Charger Hellcat easily.

    You already have the Cobra for weekend/nice day fun so no need for another Mustang/Camaro.

    I'd get the GT500 any day of the week, but if I HAD to have an auto, it would be a hellcat. I would probably buy a viper before a hellcat though.
