I don't know how we can really argue this without going into performance and handling aspects. The exterior and interior styling is extremely subjective and you can't argue someone into liking it.

I know we know who the winner is in terms of performance but I think in this case you either like the Mustang styling and want it more then you want the higher performance of the Camaro. Nothing wrong with that at all. I think both cars are REALLY good looking cars and I'd take either one gladly, but for pure performance I'd pick the SS.

Performance? Okay 400lbs+ in weight without the spare tire my mustang has is unneeded. Also, it has 96 more hp but still has a 4.8 0-60 speed and mine is 4.9. Now add some roush to this and what do you get?

I never said the Mustang was a slouch. I think they're great but obviously they're not performing on the same level as the SS or SRT8. I think they're doing DAMNED good for the engine they've got but I am talking about stock here.

You can buy the car and pay however much more and make it faster, or you can buy a different car for the same price and have it already be faster. This is just a situation where you prefer a certain aspect (e.g. you like Mustang's) over stock performance. Nothing wrong with it at all.

How much does doing the Roush thing cost?

Ah right. On the flip side lets get us some 6.2liter with a .1sec lead on that 4.6liter vehicle.

Technically thats incorrect the Mustang GT track outperforms the SRT8 and hangs within .2 seconds of the Camaro SS and has a better lateral G so its not really a slouch. In real world driving the average person wont even notice the difference

It doesn't matter where you get the power from, just how much you can make with it.

Didn't motor trend take care of this? The GT will kill the challenger, charger and tags along way too close on the 2010 Camaro for the 100hp gain it has.

^^^Yeah, I meant in muscle car performance stuff, not handling. Can't say that it doesn't handle because everything I hear says it handles great.

Sorry, I didn't mean the GT couldn't hang with the SS or SRT8 in handling. I meant in stock for stock 0-60, 1/4 mile, etc.

It's damn close, but losing is losing.

I'm not disrespecting the Mustang at all, but it's obvious if you are looking for bang for the buck performance you're looking at the Camaro. If you like or dislike certain aspects of either car you take the one you like better.

I actually test drove a new Mustang GT today that was modified by the dealer to have the Roush cat back exhaust and cold air intake. I must say, that thing was a blast to drive!

This leads up to my main point: GM has seriously dropped the ball when it comes to producing the 2010 Camaro. I drove from Orange County to San Diego and back yesterday, and I saw countless new Mustangs, and even an old 68 Camaro, but the new Camaros were nowhere to be seen. How the hell am I supposed to wait to buy a car that I have no idea when it is going to be here, and also I have never seen in person. (I have seen a V6 before, but never an SS).

I guess this is why Ford is going to be able to go the entire year without government money, and GM is on the verge of becoming extinct.

I think it's more that Ford was smarter then GM and saw they were in trouble so they mortgaged everything to have cash on hand. Nothing wrong with it but it's essentially what GM would have been doing if the banks hadn't crashed.

I can't knock Ford for doing the smart thing before the situation was dire!
