Thats easy. Hellcat if your actually going to drive it.

If your going to sit around looking at it and telling everyone how you don't drive it, then keep the GN.

Never understood the look at my polished garage car concept.

That's why I own two!  It is like a time machine set to 1987.  I really need to take an old buddy out to the track with his Hell Cat.

There really is no comparison to the quality of new cars today vs. the mid 80's GN, especially for a daily driver type vehicle.
Champion Irons w/T&D roller rockers, TA-61 turbo, 206/206 flat tappet cam,  57 lb/hr Siemens Injectors, 3000 stall PTC, PTE Plenum w/RJC Power Plate, 70 mm PTE Throttle Body, RJC 325 Megacooler, TurboTweak chip, Alky Control w/M1 methanol, 25 psig on the street, stock crank, rods, and block.

A lot of broken parts does not make you a racer; it makes you a slow learner.

My GN was a driver and a snapshot in time of the epitome of factory performance. 
Nothing wrong with getting a kitty and taking another new snapshot.
I keep all my snapshots.

If I was Steve that Camaro would still/forever be in my driveway.

The 70's Mopars were crappy built cars to me then, still don't get how they became the holy grail of collecting now.

  If you were me, that Camaro would probably be gone.  There was a lot of negative personal baggage attached to it that prevented me from enjoying it.  It went to someone that did not know the history and could enjoy it.

Understood Steve!

I like Jeremy's idea even more than a kitty

Only 556 HP  in a caddy compared to 797 HP in a red eye.
 2016 v is 640 hp but it will be a long time for those to drop to $10.000

You really can't compared any new car with an old one!  The technology, magnetic ride or what ever, power, handling, interior.
