1:21 Camaro to Mustang ratio -.-

Im not dogging on Mustangs but they need to take a break on production lol. I was bored and figured I would drive through the local shopping hot spots to see if I can recruit some C5 members with my C5 business cards. Well that didn't work. I found 1 RS Camaro, 3 Challengers, and 21 Mustangs. Ugh. I tried guys. Will try again later.

I pass a ridiculous amount of Mustangs on a daily basis (the 2005+ models). Granted they have about 5 years more production on the 5th gen Camaros right now.

However, last night I went out to town for a couple hours and spotted four 5th gen Camaros. Two yellow, two black.

Saw my first 2013 mustang the other day... it's an improvement, but still blends in with the many many many that are out there.

I personally like the fact that my car stands out in the crowd I love when people are like how come you didn't buy a mustang and simply for me the camaro is sexier and more unique

I like Mustangs, but I like the Camaro even more. That's the foremost reason why I bought one over the Mustang. But one of the factors that led me to buying a Camaro was that there are so freaking many mustangs on the road. I like the 1:21 ratio.

These threads make no sense. It just goes to show you how popular that car really is. Every time someone starts one of these threads they don't realize that they are just giving Ford a Compliment. Besides Camaro are starting to show up everywhere too. That's why they are mass produced. They want to sell a lot of them.

If you want to be rare buy something exotic or old.

Yeah, they really are everywhere. I'm sure this might be a problem (good thing?) for Chevy in a couple of years with the Camaro as it has begun to catch on fire in the automobile world once more, but for now, the Mustang market is quite saturated and as sales continue to increase for the Camaro, so will the amount you see around you on a daily basis.

Camaros have been out selling Mustangs for 3 years. Our best hope for remaining unique is the Camaro having a noticable model redesign. Fortunately the 2016 Camaro will be on different platform, saving us from a 15 year FOX platform situation.

Yup, basically. Thats where making your ride unique and catered toward you plays in the most I believe, as the Camaro continues to outsell its competition.

You know, I bet if Mustang brought back the Mustang II they may make a come back.

it used to be like that here but is has started to change, you still see alot more Rustangs but used to see one Camaro a week the first six months I owned it back in 2010. but the last year it has really exploded here. now on a trip to the local small city near me I see any where from 3-6 on one round trip. slowly but surely we are taking over

Mustang is a damn fine car. And Ford even knows how to make a convertible with a top that doesn't self destruct. Something GM can't do. So don't rag on them too much.

It's not just Gen5 Camaros that are scarce. It's all Camaros. If you take note, you really don't see that many anywhere of any style. I wonder why.....

I rarely see 98-02 Ss/Z28s/Trans Ams etc.. But when I do I think it's cool. Same for clean 3rd gens (had I liked them more than the 5.0 mustangs, I'd have a zl1 on order instead of my GT500, just got luck I guess )

I will disagree about the '10 and up Mustang/Camaro ratio in my area.

I see at least as many Camaros as Mustangs. But, that could just be me seeing the same 6-7 cars over and over.
