Pony Car of Burden?

I just recently read yet another article released on MSN.com comparing the 2010 Camaro to the 2010 Mustang. Is the Camaro REALLY that unrefined and uncomfortable? Is it too "cartoony" whereas the Mustang is mature? Is the interior of the Camaro that plain and unappealing compared to the Mustang? They even stated early on that they wouldn't nitpick on the smaller details about how one car can beat the other by a few tenths of a second, but yet they continue to bash this car like it's a POS. Personally, Mustangs are generic; been around too **** long and they aren't very exciting cars. They are a dime a dozen.

I love my Camaro and it performs every bit as well as it looks. Mustang owners bow their heads in shame when they see me coming down the road.

Everybody is riding this press nonsense about Ford being the only company out of the big three in Detroit not accepting a bailout so their reputation remains intact. I wonder if the press feels obligated to continue this silly and ridiculous downplay of the new 5th Generation Camaro because of this (not solely).

I know there will be those that disagree with me wholeheartedly, but seriously, if you owned a Camaro and the press continues to trash your car when compared to an inferior Mustang, how would that make you feel? Your thoughts? Thanks!

I can't speak for anyone else. I owned a 2007 Mustand CS/GT. I currently own a 2010 Camaro SS. Not even friggin close to compare these two cars! Yeah yeah, of course I'm biased, but the Camaro is superior in so many ways. I don't need to preach to ya'll. You know.

You know what Knight........... you make me so ANGRY!

How's it going man? I read the same article. It did have some negative things to say, but some equally good ones too, and did so for both cars. Chapped my @ss a little at first, but I get defensive real fast when it comes to Camaro

I really think that the people who write these articles have no clue as to what a "muscle" car is really like.... I grew up in the 70s... my cousin had a 70 chevelle ss, 427, 5:13 gears that car would scream!!! All of his friends had muscle cars including the usual suspects, 69 camaros, a few cudas, a charger, a few mustangs... when you rode in those cars you knew they ruled the street....

Times have changed no doubt and I like the fact that my camaro can do more than just go fast in a straight line.... Having said that, in my opinion, the camaro embodies what a muscle car should be and I am glad I bought it...

Life is too short to drive a boring car.....

I don't care what they say. I like my car. Most other people like my car. Other cars roll down the street, no one looks unless it's an exotic, or a 2010 Camaro. What does that tell you? That the moron who wrote the article is WRONG!

The new Camaro is hands down the best looking pony car out there. The second best looking is the Challanger. That makes Mustang number 3! I waited years to buy a new Camaro. I had my first new one in 1973. It was a Z28! I absolutely loved it. The new 2010 Camaro is so good looking both coming and going. It also rides like a luxury car. (I have the 1LT) The Mustang although supposedly new, looks nearly the same as before. It does not turn heads like the Camaro.

The sales numbers reflect how the real folks view our great car. Those stupid magazine articles are just that...stupid!
