Muscle Car or Beefy Pickup?

Hey guys just curious what y’all think ? I have a bucket list to own different kinds of vehicles at least once in my life ...Now I’ve never owned a muscle car or a pickup for that matter and yes I know both are extremely different - I can justify owning both being that we just bought a house the pickup (like a raptor or New Dodge Ram trx) would be cool and useful , muscle car would be a childhood dream and a fun drive to work everyday

I still have a year to go or more maybe before I decide but what would you do ?

How about a classic pickup ;p have two 1950 fords for sale...

Id get the muscle car unless/until you have a need for a pickup bed.

Very true....I couldn’t find one that wasn’t beat to hell so I got a Hemi Jeep as my DD, but weekend car is a Foxbody Mustang.

it all comes down to what you're looking at muscle car wise and what you're looking at pickup wise. there are different options where you get the best of both worlds in one car. for example a srt8 jeep, powerful and you can fit some stuff in the trunk but also pricey.
Me personally would get a pickup first then get an older muscle car down the line
