yeah but it's kinda annoying when they turn every thread into a Mustang vs Camaro thread. I have no problem with them being here.
BUt some just seem to be out looking to start a fight.
It's a Camaro forum guys!!! We are going to make fun of other cars. I've been to mustang forums and you can't tell me we are worse than them. Huge fanboyism going on there. Beyond the point of just being completely blind.

If the Mustang were supposed to be a muscle car this might be an issue. The Mustang isn't a muscle car, the Mustang is what it started out as and should always remain, an American GT, a true grand-touring car. That makes the vehicle car less one dimensional than any muscle car could ever hope to be, opening up a market which is far more vast.

In the world of the Mustang you'll see everything from thirty something, professional women in a loaded Mustang convertible to forty hour a weekers taking their weekend toy to the drags to see what she'll do to afluent college grads in a new GT500....the list goes on. And the one thing they all have in common? They all love their car.

If you think the rest of automotive world isn't now and hasn't long been green with envy you are sadly mistaken. A very few truly great cars transcend simpler classifications that limit the vehicle by means of class and/or social strata, the Mustang is on that list.

I believe this was an ad that Ford put out in '66.

quoted for opinion.....IMHO I think the mustang tried to be a muscle car and saw a bigger picture and more profit out of making it a chick car ect ect...so instead of making amazing muscle cars....they were satisfied with an average car....hence the pony aspect. I do not disagree that it worked out for ford better the way they went with the mustang, but to me it is 3rd on the list of muscle cars and is called a pony car for a reason.

The Mustang, Cougar, Challenger, Baracuda, Firebird, and Camaro were never intended to be pure muscle cars. From the start they were supposed be more than straight line monsters with giant engines. Which is why the Charger and Chevelle died off in the 1970's but Mustangs and Camaros continued for years and years.

And the Charger has returned. Twice. But the pony cars had a broader appeal because they weren't so 1 dimensional. They were still fast, and some had monster motors too. But when power numbers fell like a rock in the early 70's the Camaro still had some fun to offer buyers. The Chevelle didn't, so they morphed it back into a family hauler (the Malibu)

They are losing as much money as everyone else, they just happened to mortgage all of their assets prior to the credit market tightening, and are not in such a bind for cash. But credit them on seeing what others did'nt see ahead of time and knowing when to borrow the money. No disrespect to the mustang, but I question the strategy, most sports car buyers really don't want their car to be associated with a scrunchie for a 12 year old girl...

Why? Because you're not there! Plus, it's been 3 days since the last Mustang bash thread.

Really, we want to celebrate with you because....
