The Correct Configurations For The Pony Cars: 2019 Edition

There are many ways to configure the Big 3's modern muscle, but this is the right one.

Contrary to the feelings of many others, I really like the 2019 refreshed 4 and 6 cylinder Camaros. The new grille does a good job of referencing the ‘68 RS cars. The SS front fascia is an absolute train wreck though, if you could get this front end on an SS 1LE, that’d be the car to have.

Honorable mention goes to the ZL1 1LE, which I have first hand experience losing to at AutoX and which is still the old body style.

Next up the Challenger R/T Scat Pack with the T/A package and 6-speed manual in Plum Crazy Purple (Yellow Jacket is also acceptable).

If that’s not just the perfect mixture of old school cool and modern flare, then I don’t know what is.

Finally, even though it retains the S550.1 front end, the GT350R in Leadfoot Grey is still the coolest Mustang.

The Bullitt Mustang had a shot at being awesome, Dark Highland Green Metallic is a great color and the minimalist chrome rimmed grille look great. However, the incredibly clunky BULLITT badging all over the car ruins it. Seriously, why did you but that dinner plate sized crosshair on the trunk panel Ford?!

Anyway, yeah, the GT350R is still the king.

Honorable mention in the Mustangs goes to the GT Performance Pack 2 in “Orange Fury”, which is the coolest S550.2 Mustang because of the Bullitt mess:
