One of my biggest pet peeves is a v8 owner, regardless of make, talking down to a v6 owner. I mean, at the track, I've beat my fair share of v8s, including Mustangs, Camaros,Chargers and even a Corvette. I've lost to some of those exact same cars, none of us talked trash about each other, but rather had few good laughs when they found out my car was a 6. No, most of the trash talking comes from this very forum, as some of the v8 guys can be very condescending, saying things like, "get the real Camaro before you talk". Seriously?

Like you, I respect all pony cars, the Camaro, Mustang and Challenger, although the Camaro is the only one I've ever wanted to own. I even respect the Charger's attempt at being a muscle car. I love the Corvette's finesse and muscle, and the Viper's pure unadulterated, in your face, audacity at being a sports car. it's brutal, and I love it!

If those two people piss you off that much, ignore their posts. They will find out that there really is no end all, be all car in this world, except by opinion. Doing the same thing they are doing doesn't make it right, and makes you look as bad as them.

Oh, and my v6 "muscle" is just as much "muscle" as your v8. WE are BOTH in pony cars, these aren't muscle cars. That title is reserved for the Chevelles, GTOs, Fairlanes, Falcons and Chargers of the world. Just to name a few.

My daughter bought me a book titled "Muscle Cars" by J.F. Newbery for my birthday. Its a real cool book (tons of great pics). All the cars in the book are from 1961 - 1974.

Here's just as taste of the cars in the book
1. Chevy Impalla 409
2. Ford Fairlane 500
3. Chevy Bel Air SS 409
4. Dodge Dart 413
5. Ford Galaxie 500
6. Plymouth Belvedere
7. Pontiac Catalina
8. Chevy Chevelle
9. Buick Skylark
10. Chevy Malibu SS 396
11. Pontiac GTO
12. Dodge Cornet
13. Chevy Nova SS 327
14. Ford Mustang 289
15. Ford Mustang GT Shelby
16. Dodge Charger
17. Mercury Cougar
18. Oldsmobile 442
19. Chevy Camaro SS 396
20. Chevy Camaro Z28
21. Buick GS400
22. Plymouth Barracuda


And the list continues. But the High Output Camaros (SS and Z28 models) are classified as Muscle Cars (in the pony car class) going by this book.

lol....works for me!! Even though the v6 Camaro of today has more horsepower then some of those listed, depending upon year and such!

Of course, this generation SS doesn't sport a 396 either, lol, and the Z28 isn't out quite yet! I'll stand corrected though, in any case, lol!!

Ok this thread has degenerated in a childish V8 vs. V6 argument. Starting to think mods should just lock the thread.

People even pimp out the East German Trabant...

And check out these 0-60 and 1/4 mile times:

0 - 60: 30.3 seconds
1/4 mile: 22.5 seconds at 56mph



AND

Is there even a car in this image??

I guess those that are worried about the performance (lack thereof) of their Camaro should find comfort in the fact that while racing like juvenile tards, when the oh crap moment happens....that "slow" heavy car which is among the safest on the road will keep you alive. The car is slower because she needs a diet, that weight comes from a robust chassis...

Thats pretty damn funny! I thought you a typo in the times but I had to think about it. If your car is that slow to accelerate its going to take a long stretch of road to hit 60

C'mon,
CamaroFreako you don't really own a Camaro do you?
An 18 year old Camaro driver in Kuwait???
Why do you lie?
Time to fess up....I just can't believe anyone would be dissapointed in this car.
Not everyone who drives it would be sold but, they would still be impressed.

Not a huge fan of the SS mail slot. I do like the deeper SS airdam though. If they would marry that with the V6 top I think the front end would be perfect
