New Camaro vs Imports vs Mustangs

Hello everyone I've been over the road for the last couple of months so its nice to talk to you guys again.I was just wondering what do you guys hate worse Mustangs and Challengers or the imports you see running around personally Im an american car guy all the way I could never buy an import it just wouldnt feel right let me know what you guys think p.s. I just saw the new transformers movie Bumblebee looked awesome I cant wait till I see the real thing

I don't hate any of them, since I have owned/toyed with just abotu every car genre imaginable.

That being said, people who trick out Neons (sans SRT4), Lumina/Cavaliers, Sunfires, Escorts (sans the badass Euro ones), and any domestic V6 could all use a lesson in common sense.

Anythign else is fair game to me. They all have their pros and cons, and it boils down to preference.

BUT, for the sake of discussion, of the three choices you offered, I'd much rather see Mustangs go down...though watching the Challengers get pommeled by the Camaros will be fun.

Yeah good point I actually used to own a 06 Mustang gt dont get me wrong it was a nice car but performance wise I think it came up a little short I think the challenger should be a better performance car than the mustang as long as it doesnt weigh as much as a dodge ram as far as the imports go I guess I have always been biased towards american muscle my dad,granddad,uncle are all retired gm employees so I get that gm employee discount WOO-HOO actually the Import guys are usually pretty friendly when they see a pony car Im just not into that whole fast and furious scene but to each his own

I dont necessarily hate the cars. I just dont get the emotion or the feeling i do from the Camaro.

Then you have the 1865468462 different editions of the Mustang, that also drives me crazy. They just wont stop, the brand image of the Mustang and Ford is getting so broad, and diluted that i would never own one.

And as far as the Challenger goes, I always live by the saying.

Dodge builds Challengers, Chevy builds winners...

LOL I know I broke the golden rule but I was looking for a sporty car but didnt have the cash for a new vette and never really liked the new charger so it seemed like a good idea at the time so now all I have to do is wait for the new camaro it cant get here soon enough then all we need is a new firebird

Import four bangers and their freakin annoying fart can exhausts, piss me off to no end . I love nothing more then to rip them apart with some good ole american muscle. now if your talking imports such as lambos, ferrari's, bugatti's, koenigsegg's, ect. then those are just some sweet rides!! (none of which most of us could afford). I am GM loyal for sure but I would much rather see the Stangs and Challengers on the road. Its good for pricing and performance competition as well as rivalry and bragging rights.


~Cheers!!

You do mean Stangs and Challengers and Camaro's on the road, right? That sounded a little funny if you know what I mean.

As long as people love some sort of car, then I can't be mad. That said, I really don't like those fwd tuner cars. Not necessarily imports, as I like Supras, RX-7's, Z cars, Bimmers, Skyline GTRs, and Evos. The Mustang is a good car and the Camaro benefits from the competition

Well... I guess you hate me then. I like them all.... but sense Iam currently into auto-x and road racing (NOT STREET RACING!!!) I'd take my STi with its fart can.

Iam all about american muscle, been playing with them all my life but its fun jumping ship and learning about imports. Personally the only imports I'll ever own are STi's, Evo's, Supra's, and skyline's but thats me.
