I certainly hope so. I would hope that the American public can recognize the difference between sexy and ugly...

For example:
Sexy


Ugly

I would like to think so the only thing the Mustang has going for it is the cheaper price it always has nothing would make me feel better (besides a 2SS/RS RJT, Sunrood, polished 20's in my driveway now) to see the Camaro outsell the Mustang

The Mustang will probably outsell it based on cost. I see ads for V6 Mustangs for like $16k. The V8 GT can be had for cheaper than a V6 Camaro.

The front end actually isn't bad on the Mustang, but the new rear end is hideous.

That's probably true, unfortunately.

+1 on the rear, but in my opinion, Ford only did one thing right on the 2010 model, and that's the side view of the headlights.

I can understand this is a camaro forum, and you guys are pretty obsessed with your new toys, (i would be too).

but you can't really say the mustang is "UGLY" , it's not that bad of a looking car..

Nope, sorry. I can and I did. It's all a matter of opinion. And that's just it. In my opinion, the new Mustang make me want to vomit.

Camaro is not going to outsell anything if they are being held hostage

Yup - I don't want to agree but I do. It usually comes down to the $$$ and the Mustang has that. In terms of actual value, I don't think that's the case - but I think more people look at what is cheaper, and not what they can actually do with that money. If that's the case, I think Camaro has a better chance than I'm giving it, and I hope I'm wrong

With an a-ok economy, I think that the Camaro will sell better over time assuming the Mustang never gets a revision to match the V6 Camaro.

With over 4K votes at this point, the camaro is ahead by almost 5%. Hopefully that's accurate and not just because of the link in this thread!

No.

There are too many Mustangs for people to buy, and not nearly enough Camaros.

It's a step up from the last generation and it's better than, say, the first Scions, but I just don't find it appealing.
