That's a weird one for me. I am so glad it exists, but have absolutely zero interest in having one and very little interest in them beyond that. I don't think I'd turn down an opportunity if someone tossed me the keys and said, "have at it for a few minutes," when I had nothing else to do, but not sure I'd get dressed and take a couple hours of my Saturday or Sunday to spend some time in one.

The Chrysler musclecars don't interest me even a little bit. Every time I see a review of a Gen6 Camaro I think "I want to want that car." But ultimately I don't really want one.

Chrysler musclecars are [bleah] to me in the same way that the school bus-sized lifted pickups are. I see them as the go-to choices for massively fragile egos. To each their own, though.

I suspect there is some of that, but I think it's more that different people like different things.

I don't really like the Demon, but the Hellcat widebody 6M is something that I find pretty interesting. Even the normal 392 SRT is kind of a cool car, in a very 70s way.

I don't think I'd ever buy one, but I get the appeal.

I'd like to drive a 6G Camaro to see if they're better than the Mustangs. I suspect they are.

Yeah, that ego comment is pretty stupid.

For many of who hit puberty in the late 60's and early 70's, and who read every issue of C&D the minute it hit the newstand, these cars remind us of what we grew up aspiring to one day own.

Eh. I get that there is a big nostalgia play there, but there is also definitely a separate small dicked fragile ego market too. It's the same group of people who like to tow 50,000lbs. loads with their 3/4 ton RAMs, and that is a very, very Dodge segment of the market.
