It's puzzled me, especially as of late, why the Mustang seems to get such universal praise; aftermarket loves it, and owners have so much extreme pride. Take a look at sites like www.svtperformance.com
. Sure, the Camaro sites are big, but when comparing the individuals' cars, the Mustangs seem to stand out.
There there are the magazines like 5.0 Mustang & Super Fords and Muscle Mustangs & Fast Fords vs. GMHTP and Camaro Performers. There is simply no comparison, really.
Speaking of owners, I has met many nice people when I owned my '93 Mustang GT and my four Camaros, but between the two groups, the Camaro seemed to attract the biggest dirtbag owners. Dirty rednecks, if you will.
So I move on to my main point... I was browsing a thread on stangnet, the "Nicest Foxes". http://www.stangnet.com/mustang-foru...est-foxes.html
and there are some very nice cars. Keep in mind, some of the cars are almost thirty years old, yet they look and run amazingly. How many third gens do we see like the cars in that thread? Check out www.thirdgen.org
and you will see what I mean.
I guess it shouldn't matter, but it is a bit disheartening to see the third gen tossed around as the white trailer trash car of choice, yet the Fox's are still highly coveted, tastefully modified and very clean. Hell, even 4th gens are looking like crap anymore.
So, what was it that caused this? How did this happen? Why does the Camaro seem to be flocked to by Joe Dirt?
