Camaro 1SS starts at $30,995 w/ dest. charge.


Should we compare it to the 2009 GT-500 that costs $46,325 w/o dest. charge instead?

It's called Camaro V8 = most bang for your buck $30K will buy for a new car.

http://www.chevrolet.com/allnewcamar...car-comparison

I showed this to my friend who recently ordered a new, um, "car", and he is PISSED OFF... not just because he's car is slower, but because the Ford dealer told him that the Camaro's will never be faster, better, or have more horsepower than Mustangs. (He didn't shop much).

I can't wait to get mine... !


tell your friend that camaros have nearly ALWAYS been faster, better, and more powerful than the mustang. save for the Cobras and GT500's. and a few instances back in the 80's when the fox body first came about

The poor Mustang boys and girls need a $45K GT500 to compete. No thanks. No sane person pays $45K for a Mustang.

Your comments are ridiculous but extremely entertaining.
It's good to know that the blue oval boys are already working on their excuses.

If I invest the 12k less I paid on my 2SS into the performance of my vehicle, I will GLADLY take on your "Top Model"

Even on the low side of pricing it's only about a $2K difference. I guess if you'd rather not spend the xtra $2K for more power and a better looking car that's your personal preference.

Last I heard dealers were still marking up the GT-500s. Good bang, but for a LOT of bucks! You can buy the much lighter 436 horse Vette coupe for that money, which is a lot more fun to drive.

That's most of our points as well.
I could care less about the whole Mustang-Camaro thing.
I typically am a Corvette guy but I love the new retro style.

Be realistic with your comparisons and you will not have any issues on this site. However, attempting to compare the GT500 to the 1SS, while a much closer comparison in performance vice the GT, is not a comparison at all in pricing - totally different market.

The ford comparison tool is interesting. Like how many errors it has about the Camaro, lol. They really should get that price, hp, mpg updated instead of giving misinformation.
