New guy intro: Photoshoot - Black Coupe and Black Vert - 56k..no way

Not the best camera but does the job until I splurge for a Canon.

So one Saturday almost 2 weeks ago, my buddy (vert) and I (coupe) got up at 7am and decided to clean our cars. 12 hours later..... after stripping down wax, claying and finally polishing with Porter we took some pictures. I threw in a photo of the products that went into the job and of course the final results. Just for point of reference, my buddy used Tropicare on his and I did a mix of Zaino and Meguire's. Any suggestions, opinions, recommendations?

If anyone in Northern VA with a good camera is willing to lend us a hand in taking some better pics one of these weekends, I know these cars will look even better. shoot me a PM

Most of the products (I forgot to include Zaino's polish and a few other items):


Car pics:





















And of course the furry helper (my buddy's gf's dog)

Welcome to the forum...

Looks like you really love those stangs, are you planning to buy the new Camaro when it becomes available?

Are you confused? I can see how you would be because I kind of am too! He's only made two posts and one of them is showing off his and his buddies Mustangs. BUT, as you know, we have quite a few members on here who own and love Mustangs.

His other post commented on how cool he thought the Camaro exhaust sounded. This leads me to believe that he's a good guy.

Now, if he came on here trash talking the Camaro and picking fights, he would end up like a couple other trolls we had. I don't see any ill intentions yet and will NOT hold the fact that owns Mustangs against him as I've said many times before. Let's just look at it this way, he's a Mustang guy on a Camaro forum and so far, likes the Camaro. He may be converted yet!!! Seriously, he's got a love for musclecars so he's all good in my book. We'll give him a shot.
PAUL,
You have a beautiful looking Cobra. Very, very nice. I know how hard it is to keep the black paint looking clean. It's been about a month since I've been able to wash my Camaro since it's been raining so much off and on. We haven't had a single day in about 3 weeks where it hasn't drizzled or rained at least once.

I have been meaning to order Zaino as I hear it is pretty much the #1 cleaning agent for cars. Moose uses it and swears by it. I'll tell you this, your Mustangs look SICK. I can only imagine the looks you guys get driving around together on the streets. So tell me, are you planning on putting a 5th Gen in the driveway?

Again, nice job on those stangs...very nice job.

Hey thanks for helping out bud. I didn't feel like getting into an argument with the fella and nothing works better then a mod slamming his power stick down
I never really understood the whole camaro vs mustang aliance since they are both american made and represent a strong sense of american pride. The way I see it, if you got a nice car, I could trully care less what it is as long as its clean and tastefully done.
To answer the question about a new camaro: you better believe it. That is probably one of the only true muscle cars for what I would trade my cobra. (Maybe a Z06 but thats not a realistic comparison). I considered a Chally for quite awhile but after seeing both of the cars in person and reading about the engines that the Chevy could eventually throw into these cars...I have to say, I was impressed with the Camaro.

Thanks for the compliments guys. Didnt mean to stir up any bad blood

I agree, live and let live.

I've always been a Ford fan, but more than that, I'm a petrolhead and love all makes and models. I'll be getting an '05 Mustang next year, but it doesn't stop me thinking the '09 Camaro is THE hottest muscle car in the world.

Who knows, in a few years when prices drop, I may get my hands on a Camaro. What I'd really like is one of each

Edited to say.......those are two luvverly Mustangs!!

I used to work with a guy that didn't recognize the rivalry between ford and chevy. Some folks just want a good lookin' car to drive and show off... understandable. Others take it a bit more serious than that. You have people that won't drive a ford and some that won't touch a chevy.

While I'm not that deep in it, I can say that I don't care for ford's but mainly for performance reasons. I don't know why they have to put a supercharger on most or all of their V-8's, or get shelby / saleen to sign off on it before it really takes off. In all fairness, they do have some nice truck body designs. That new " super-chief" is different.

And I was never interested in dodge until they gave their cars a makeover both inside and out. Now, dodge's cars look good and perform great but they're too expensive. for crying out loud...

Chevy's right in the middle.

Paul, 1bad67Camaro isn't a bad guy at all...please don't get him wrong. I hope I wasn't coming off in a bad way towards him either as that wasn NOT my intention. I'm definitely not trying to put any members in their place and not trying to start any arguments. I try my best to keep everyone happy! If I am right in thinking where he's coming from, he was a bit confused as was I. I was wondering why someone w/ a couple of posts was putting up a photoshoot of two Cobras. I was like, ! Is he trying to say something?

I had to check your other posts to see if you have mentioned anything about the Camaro. You had me thinking as we've had a couple Ford fans on the site bashing GM and the Camaro. I found your other post which led me to beleive you didn't have ill intentions. With that being said, it's all good.

Again, I'm not trying to put anyone in their place. If I offended you, 1bad67Camaro, I apologize. You're both good guys in my book!!!

I will have respect for people who have Mustangs as long as they have respect for me and my Camaros... the town we live in is "hard core Mustangs" so everytime me and my boyfriend are out with our friends, the ones that have Mustangs always talk about how "Mustangs are better at this" and "Mustangs are faster when you do this..." So as far as Mustang guys on this site, I am perfectly fine with them and welcome them whole heartedly! As far as Mustang fans here in my hometown... NOBODY downs a Camaro around me!

The one thing I can't stand, whether it be Mustang, Honda, whoever... Is a 4 cylinder or V6 that TRIES to look fast... I know I have a V6, I don't make any mods to it other than my billet grille and small stuff... But when you start adding SS hoods, exhaust, etc.... That's pretty dumb, IMO.

I'm a Chevy guy and would never consider a Ford or Chrysler for a musclecar or hotrod. That being said, I can also appreciate and understand why someone would like a Chrysler product or Ford product. Plus I've heard those Cobras are pretty bad ass and I actually think they look tough.

It's all a matter of preference and opinion. As long as they were made by a domestic manufacturer, they are ok in my book. I personally welcome different opinions.

As for the tuner crap, I think people need to get their heads examined. Loud fart cans (mufflers), big wings, ground effects, and neon lights do NOT make your car cool or faster!

Amen to that brother. Every chance I get whether it be a honda with a wing taller then the driver himself, or a toyota with a fart can that's probably the size of the driver's anus, I go for the thumbs down. I always hope it'll change their mind about trying to show off a VTECH with 130hp at the crank. But that never seems to and if I get back a rev or two, maybe even an attempt to catch up ..... I bring out the 500 ponies

Back onto topic...I'm not a professional photographer - technically...

You have a lot of great poses, there...The one with the 'vert up front and the coupe behind at an angle looks really professional. My only advice for you: NEVER point a camera in the general direction of the sun - It's the first rule a photographer learns...always have the sun at your back. (and if it's noon - sun right above - wait to take pictures). Other than that I say VERY NICE Mustangs, I never quite liked that generation of Mustang, but those look gorgeous - tell your friend I said so.

My first and foremost Loyalty has been and will always be GM - not just Chevy, but all of them! However - I love Ford as well, lets face it guys - they won the first round...35 years and pffffft....But I've never held the Mustang v. Camaro on as high a pedestal as hate...It's unhealthy and unfair -to everybody. It's also nonsense, there is really nothing BAD about either car...it's all in where your loyalties lie (so you make stuff up, one way or the other) .

1bad67camaro, don't take this the wrong way, but paul_k did put this thread into the general/other cars forum...so whether he hates the Camaro or not - he's proud of his car, and he has a good reason to be - like I said above, those are two gorgeous cars!

This kind of heckling puts good guys like TAG in an odd position...You want to please both parties, but find it rather difficult to do...I'm no moderator - and I recognise that - but I just want to say to EVERYBODY, from me personally, don't attack somebody who's proud of their car, with good right to be, too. Just ignore it if you can't bear their vehicle. UNLESS THEY ATTACK YOUR RIDE. Like Camarochick said...nobody bashes a Camaro around me -I'll kill 'em. I'll also kill any ricer who puts down any Muscle Car...

A very wise used car salesman once said - "It's a mystical bond between man and machine..." --- That lives true for any vehicle.

Welcome paul_k

Congrats on owning a beautiful Mustang. Nothing wrong with that.

Personally, I like the seeing the "rivalry" that seems to exist between Camaro's, Mustang's, etc. After all, if we all drove the same make, wouldn't it make life a little more boring??!

I look at it this way...you're a fellow Muscle Car enthusiast, and you're driving an American made car. The fact that it's a Mustang only "spices things up" a little.

Again. Welcome aboard. Glad to have ya' here.

Sexy looking Cobras man! Any Cobra is good in my book. I know from experience a friend of mine has a white one that runs 11's.

I'm not very biased. I Prefer GM cars. But I also like many other makes of cars including some imports (if done right).

My daily driver is a '03 Ford Focus SVT. And I'm proud to say it will outrun V6 mustangs and out turn many cars. What it lacks in power it makes up with top notch agility and brakes as good as a vete.


My toy is of course a '69 Camaro. So I have to be partial to the sexy of sexy muscle cars. But I drool all over all makes and models of cars at car shows.

I know, I know...I should have cleaned the car before I made this.

Sorry it's actually my yellow and black. I just turned my car black and white and left the panties colored. I call it SexAppeal.

However, I have some silver and black pictures for your enjoyment.
