How in the Heck is this even close?! The only thing the 'Stang has going for it is the Track Pack and GT500. The rest is completely subjective. Given this is the first year for Camaro, I'm sure we'll see some more suspension packages and refinement in the future, then what? Track-what?... I won't talk about the GT500 because it's not even in the same price range and I don't believe the it was the target for the SS.

Great find and sticky!
5.0 GTs next year.

Hey, now -- I meant no offense! I just like the delicious irony of such a landslide win on a theoretically non-biased site after we had those threads around here comparing them and settling at "they're equals".

Sorry, no can do on the '06...saving up for a Camaro SS.

It's funny we have guys buying/interested in the Camaro that have never been including a ton of ford guys, but their die hard fan base refuses to see the light. It wins in almost every category on paper and the real world.

There aren't enough modern day "muscle" cars to even fill a bracket like this. its more just reasonably priced performance vehicles.

Voted: I also got to say how I love all them mustang guys who think their base GT will keep up with the Camaro SS, but what most of them dont know is how the mustang got to use their track package when the Camaro and mustang went head to head. I also loved how one guy had to bring up how GM is looking at going bankrupt. But lets face it Ford got 30 billion from the Gov. before the economy went to crap.

Some comments amaze me

I guess people Really care about 0-60 and skid pad times Huh?

I find it amazing that the main thing people bring up is all the performance specs how about Driving the Camaro SS and Mustang GT for a month on public roads... lets see witch one comes out on top

... I personally Could not care less about 0-60 times or skidpad numbers.

All of the Ford people seem to compare only Performance Numbers

like I could give 2 Shi%s how fast your mustang is or how good it handle's

I want a Good looking car with power to pushes me back into my seat and a comfortable Ride,

i think the Mustang is gonna win because the mustang has a bigger fanbase

I Hope with all my heart the camaro wins though

I voted, it looks like this....

Camaro SS

All aluminum engine, 6 speed manual or automatic, 4 wheel independent suspension, huge Brembo disc brakes, 20 inch wheels...it goes on and on. Chevy got this one RIGHT!

Yet another Camaro vote here.. I have to say, it's a shame that they think the new Stang is right on par with the Camaro performance wise. I say just wait till they see what we the people start doing for stock quarter times as oppposed to mag times.

As much as I'm glad to see to Camaro win, the final tally I see is:

Camaro SS - 135
Mustange - 51

Still almost a 3-1 advantage. To the winners go the spoils, and that would be the car itself. VIVA LA CAMARO!!!!!!!!

(Now if I could just get mine!!!)
