VIDEO: 2010 Camaro vs. 68 Camaro / Mustang GT 500 / '72 Chevelle drag races

This is a drag race on bridge between a 2010 Camaro and 1968 Camaro, both with the same exact options packages (both are SS / RS). The 1968 convertible Camaro is not stock however. It has a 406 cubic inch V8 with 5-sped manual and 3.73:1 posi rear end. The 2010 Camaro is stock.

Where the hell do you guys do this at? lol

It's looks like the Camaro only hung with the GT500 because it was spinning. Once it got traction, it pulled away.

You are correct however we are talking about a supercharged Stang and a Natural aspirated Camaro.
The Stang has a Live rear axle and the Camaro has an IRS.......amazing how the IRS has no wheel hop what so ever it plants and takes off and the stangs is left spinning the tires.
Hp isnt kicking in on the stang until you saw it starting to pull away from the camaro and thats because of the supercharger doing the work at that point.....( we knew it would since it has more hp and a supercharger its what the car is expected to do meaning the gt500) I proud to see what this Camaro did for the time it was with the Stang. Like I said lets mod this Camaro and then we will see........???????

Put a supercharger on the Camaro and then rerun this battle

Both cars around some what the same weight

Supercharger Vs Supercharger

Live rear axle Vs IRS which imo that Live rear axle should have kicked that IRS's Ass in a drag race or can we just say GM did there homework and made this IRS just right

Comparing 'supercharger' to 'supercharger' wouldnt prove anything, the camaro comes from the factory with a larger displacement engine, and likewise the ford comes from the factory with a smaller engine but a blower.

Putting a blower on the camaro is an aftermarket setup, and it is unfair to then compare the two since now you are talking aftermarket.

What would happen if you swapped a pulley on the ford?

The argument will never end.

Sux seeing a mustang beat a camaro. I know that car has over 500hp but still sux. Man I hope they make the Z28, doubt it but would be awesome.

Well......who won on the first 2 vids. Its too hard to tell from the starting line.

and BTW " Got ME SOM " is right. Thats not apples to apples. A BPU'd GT500 will prolly still smoke a Magnacharged Camaro. The argument REALLY IS never ending!!!!

and FWIW, I'm not a Ford guy so don't even go there my garage:

evn the Jet boat is GM w/454 in it
