Wow..a 3-4 thousand unit drop month to month?

I will be curious to see how the Pony and Challenger did. If they did just as poorly then may indicate a new automotive market trend starting?

I wonder what is up with the decline in deliveries for the past 3 months! Looks like October deliveries were the lowest since May '09. I wonder if some people are waiting for the convertable or Z-28!

I do not regret my decision to buy a V8 camaro. Although it was something to think about regarding the 5.0 poopstang being faster and getting better MPG. I put premium in my 2SS and I wonder if the mustang requires premium?

One downfall about owning a Camaro is having to carry 2x4 in trunk to fend off ladies! :sm0:

A lot of people also wouldn't want to drive their new Camaro in the snow. If it is a weekend car then there is no point in getting one now unless you live in a warmer climate. No chance to drive the thing!

ViperTomcat 11-03-2010 11:56 AM

Hm..so I guess it is just the Camaro.

Ghost Rider 11-03-2010 12:43 PM

I'm not liking that one year downward trend for the Comaro compared to the upward trend for Mustang and Challenger.

ViperTomcat 11-03-2010 12:54 PM

I'm sure the impending arrival of the 'vert is contributing to the weaker sales..but I doubt it would account for that big of a drop. The drop due to the Z28 I suspect is very small owing to the fact that it is still, at minimum, 14 months away from being able to purchase, if not 18 months.

Why is production so low for September and October?

Well I believe there was a 2 week plant shutdown in September. Maybe it was one week...cant remember.

LoneStar 11-03-2010 10:02 PM

Sounds like the PERFECT time to release a Camaro commercial! :headbang:

HTown 11-03-2010 11:15 PM

I was one of the October numbers :D

RLHMARINES 11-03-2010 11:41 PM

Rebates on the other brands are playing a big part in this downward trend for the camaro but i will also say that the market for all of the pony cars are going to settle out soon at some level. Remember, the camaro sales started very strong due to pent up demand. The camaro is doing a lot with only a V6 and a V8 model compared to the mustangs 6 models in their lineup. That will change with the 2 'vert models coming and at least 1 Z/28 model with the possibility of a 'vert Z/28 a distant possibility in the future we hope.

I also think that the confirmed interior upgrade for the '12 model year is probably keeping a lot of folks who are in the know on the sidelines to see that change come thru along with other mid model year cycle upgrades before the next generation camaro comes in the '14/'15 model year.

I am on the fence myself awaiting the Z/28's arrival. It's been very, very, very HARD not to pull the trigger since the camaro's launch. When i feel weak and about to abandon my plan, I just usually go and test drive one from the local rental agency or from one of my local stealership that a good friend works as a salesman for an overnight keep or longer. The wife want's me to go ahead and get a SS but i told her the Z/28 is what i want.

v6sonoma 11-03-2010 11:53 PM

I'm not to surprised. The weather is getting colder and the waiting to get your car is mostly over now so the numbers should be softer this time of year. Overall they still sold a good amount. I'm sure the vert is having a small effect but they only sold a few less than the Mustang and it has fresher product (new engines). The challenger will probably get an uptick soon with it's new powerplants. I can say no ones buying any of the three of them around here right now. It's a tough sell with snow on the way. Also most of the Camaros I see are SS or RS which means summer tires.

DarricSS 11-04-2010 12:14 AM

No idea why so many people care how many cars are sold. Been driving this car around for a year and half now...just another car on the road at this point now...

Hurry up Z28 something new is needed...

Z28RockStar 11-04-2010 12:52 AM

WAITING ON Z28!
RAWR!
hope to purchase in cash.



Z28 should not have terribad fugly stupid plastic ground effects(or any ground effects)(ima stupid redneck and this is just my lame iggnorent opinion) IN ADDITION
Z28 should have "Painted Stripe" options. . . . . . OH and a better rear spoiler!


reading this GM?

Here are few points (IMO) that basically summarize why Mustang is doing better now.
1) The Camaro is slowly loosing its looks appeal, meaning that just six months ago people were willing to buy the Camaro just because it will turn heads, now with too many of them on street, they dont turn as much heads as they used to.
2) The Mustang doesnt turn heads at all, but people now are considering the performance advantage that the Mustang has, and probably think that the better performance provided by the Mustang is a better deal than the few turning heads provided by the Camaro
3) Mustang has 3 engine choices, Camaro only have two.
4) Mustang has convertibles, Camaro doesn't
5) Mustang has more OEM accessories than the Camaro (I dont understand why the Camaro doesnt have a lot of OEM accessories, and no performance accessories at all, even the CAI by GMPP is scrapped so far)
6) Ford offers more options that are available for the Mustang, including a class exclusive glass roof.

Me for one I got My Camaro in Feb" 2010 and still turn head's any where I go. The Mustang is every where I go, I may see one or two Camaro here and there in Maryland.

According my figures there are almost 31,169 Camaros you can find out there on lots that waiting for customers. So why GM should produce more Camaros?
