Exclamation WHY do Mustang/Charger/Challenger owners LURK this thread?

Because I own a Camaro, I have come to this forum to read and learn about...the Camaro. We have discussions and since I'm happy with my Camaro decision I cannot foresee any reason what so ever to browse other car sites do defend my purchase.

If I were wary of my decision to buy a Camaro or felt inferior in buying it or was scared of the competition, I would lurk in other car sites, defending my purchase only to try to convince myself.

In other words: I'm a bit tired of Mustang (usually)/ Charger/Challenger owners butting in on Camaro conversations trying to defend their decision in buying a slightly inferior car. Stay away and suck it up...you made a bad decision and live with it.

I appreciate the input from those guys. We can all talk a lot of shit, but at the end of the day we're all American hot rod owners. Trolling is one thing, but the Ford/Dodge perspective is okay with me

Well you see, you're no better than them now. Probably should have left that part out.

Oh yeah... IBTL!!

Though I agree fully with Brandon here, I do get a little baffled as to why they spend time here. I am not a member of ANY other forum. I don't read anything else. This is what I'm interested in.

Now, some guys and gals may be 'shopping' so to speak. Which I could understand.

But the ones who come here just to defend their cars (even the ones who are really cool about it) I don't get.

BUUUUUUUUUT, I do stuff people don't get all the time. It's jut me. So I don't critisize them for it.

Well I can understand what you are saying, but only up to the bold text. That right there is what, to be quite honest, puts you into the same category as those who you complain about in your post. What makes their car "inferior" or a "bad" choice over yours? Are they happy with their car? If they are, then it was the best choice for them. Are you mad that they think their car is better than yours? Why - you feel your car is better than theirs, right?

I really have no chips on the table when it comes to whose car is better...I enjoy what I drive, and I enjoy watching other people enjoy their cars - provided of course they aren't endangering my life or property in the process.

You just need to chill and enjoy what you are driving. Life is too short to let trolls get the better of ya.

I personally like when other guys come in, this forum can all be about how amazing and awesome camaros are. There has to be debates and rivalry or else itll be boring.

Agreed.

Are you a member of Mustang or other car forums?

But my point is that I'm not over THERE trying to change their minds or challenge them. This is a Camaro forum and I will state that the Camaro is better here. If I go over to the Mustang forum and say the same thing...THEN I would be like the lurkers. There really is a difference.

Of course you always have the option of not reading the thread or post.

I do find it curious that Mustang owners are here, I own a Camaro and have no desire to read what's going on in the Mustang/Challenger forums.

But whatever......it is a public forum.....Anyone has a right to lurk and post.

Wow. It's hard asking these questions without it sounding like I have a problem with it.

I am soooo totaly cool with other car type members here and being cool with us. It makes it an even better forum in my opinion. Rivalry with respect is awesome.

I'm just curious. Is that what people will be an active member of a different car forum is there for?


No matter what it sounds like I'm an A-Hole.





This make it better?
