As we note in this 2010 Dodge Challenger look-back, there is a lot to like about these aging muscle cars.

The interior is known for being just okay, but it's hard to argue with the engine bay being nothing short of spectacular.

As long as you focus on the R/T or SRT8 models with their big V8s.

Period reviews from Edmunds point to the 2010 Challenger's relatively high curb weight putting it at a handling disadvantage

versus the 2010 Ford Mustang and the fifth-gen Chevy Camaro. However, if you can get your hands on a first-gen

Dodge Challenger SRT8 with 425 horsepower, a 6-speed manual, and a sub-$25,000 price tag, the pros would seem to outweigh the cons.
