Thinking about buying a newer muscle car

I like my Subaru Impreza a lot, but I really miss the rumble of a V8. I am starting to assemble a list of newer muscle cars I could potentially buy to replace my Subaru.

Question is, what should I get?

I really like the new 5.0 Mustangs. Always been a fan of Camaros, but not sure I am the biggest fan of the new styling. A Dodge Challenger or Charger would also be nice. Also on my list is an 03-04 Cobra Mustang. I could get the Cobra cheaper, and have a Mustang that actually has an independent rear suspension and a lot of power under the hood.

Any other cars I should consider? What do you all think about the cars listed above? Keep in mind I am looking to spend no more than 30k overall.

We have had 3rd brake light assembly, crank sensor, sirius antenna, remote garage door opener, windshield wipers malfunction (later recalled after having to drive on a long trip in the rain with intermittent wipers, mostly off), the window switch, and tailgate switch killing the battery. That was really a pain in the ass, like the crank trigger (I had to find that on my own since it was so intermittent)

Most people would have already driven this thing through a showroom floor, but ours is actually a pretty good car now, especially after the recent software update.
Yeah that wiper problem is the one where I said multifunction switch. Lol.

And those crank sensor issues are tough sometimes

I've got a 2013 Boss. It's definitely the most fun I've ever had driving.

I test drove an 04 Cobra today... and I'm left speechless. Car has some mods. The guy had the dyno sheet and it was rated at 485hp at the wheels. It completely blew me away. If I am able to sell my Impreza soon I am buying it. 55k miles on it. He said he would take 13k for it. Hope to get some pics up soon.

If pure muscle is what you want, go with a Mustang. They take to mods very well. I've got a couple. My Shelby is street legal with 710 hp to the wheels. Its a kick to drive! The acceleration is brutal! Can blaze down the 1/4 in the high 10's -low 11's (Depending on the hook) and then on a road trip in total comfort without any worries or lifting a wrench.

Very good choice. The Terminators are special. SVT built them right!

If you aren't only interested in cars you can look into the old Chevy C10 pickups..you can find restored ones with 383, 454, 396..all for around 30k..also you can get the Dodge SRT10 pickups for 30k with low miles..the Chevy Impala SS comes with the 5.3 Vortec which is a very good motor that lasts forever and is easy to modify..if you really want to get something that makes power gets good gas mileage find an older diesel pickup that is in good shape and slowly modify the motor and put a tune on it and you will have a mean sum bitch

my cousin and I are working on his 2000 Chevy 2500 Duramax..he bought it for 12k..we have rebuilt the motor, and trans..added a cold air intake, had it tuned, injectors, fuel pump along with a lot of other things..he gets around 25 mpg and is making 750hp and around 800 lb ft at last dyno..he has around 25k in it so far I think

Pretty cool video on youtube of this car and onstar calls to see if everything is ok.
Is he proving these stats anywhere - I have a hard time buying that trap speed stat.

Same here. I am going to find a Dodge Coronet one day .... I remember my pops bringing home new Dodge/Chrysler autos as a kid.

I came up behind a brand new red 2014 Corvette on the Dulles Toll Road this afternoon and it was gorgeous! The view from the rear was unlike any Vette before and had dramatic lines and slopes across the body. I speed up to pass and the whole car from back to front was simply beautiful.

If I had the money for a second expensive car, I would buy one.
