Hey what can I say. The truth is always hard to hear. It's the Camaros time right now. Just remember Ford is playing hard ball in the 2011 model year.

I just wish I could find a Camaro that doesn't run away from me on the street.

Keep in mind the Challenger wasn't meant to sell in the volume of either the Camaro or Mustang. For Chrysler it's doing ok as it is only supposed to be a 30kish a year car.

I'm excited to see the Camaro continuing to sell well. It's a good car and deserves to be on top this model year.

Get over yourself . But seriously, sales numbers are one thing, the better car is still the camaro. slapping a 5.0 in that cross-eyed dopey-looking 'stang (my opinion, of course) doesn't make it any better, just a little faster than the year before.

The main thing is, if the 5.0 stock beats the ss stock in the 1/4 mile, then the chevy gearheads are going to clamor for more power. does anyone know what the numbers are yet? i don't troll around mustang boards, got better things to do.

Where is the Camaro built?

Please forgive me if I missed this info on Camaro5, and if this is the wrong thread...
But where is the Camaro built and assembled?

This is awesome news but hard for me to believe. I see 2010 mustangs EVERYWHERE! GT's and V6's galore. I estimate I see 10 2010 mustangs to 1 Camaro. Probably the same amount of Challengers as Camaros too.
Apparently they are selling but I dont see the results yet. Congrats GM!

I think it's only natural that the Mustang is going to outsell the Camaro at some point.
For most of the pony war's history, it's been that way. From the late 60's to something of more recent years, it's been the Mustang outselling the Camaro (looking at all the fourth gen Mustangs I see on every drive I take).
Does it make it a better car? Not necessarily. If anything, it's just been more advertised. I know I'm always seeing commercials for the Mustang whereas I hardly see ANYTHING for the Camaro.
Now, if GM were to get their asses out of their chairs and start advertising something more than an LT/RS, the sales might be more impressive. If they came out and said "We're still beating Ford by 14 ponies," there would be people who liked that.

Mustang and Camaro may be in the same general category, but from someone who has driven and loves both cars, I consider them to be VERY different vehicles.
I agree with you but right now the Mustang's powertrain options are just terrible and it's obvious to anyone that cross-shops the two cars. Many buyers will overlook this for various reasons but when the performance gap is as big as it is now it's going to make a noticable difference in sales. I really think there's room for more of both as long as the economy doesn't get even worse but the rest of the competition like the Challenger and Genesis Coupe are going to get left in their little niches eating dust.
