Why Waste Your Time

Iv been reading threads on this site for almost a year now and i just think its ridiculous when i see arguments and bashing on the Camaro coming from people who are in favor of competitor cars (ford and dodge), why do they even bother joining a site that is supposed to celebrate the 5th gen. why are you wasting your time here this is a site made for people who love Camaro, if you dont im sure there's forums in favor of your ride, just my 2 cents

Just so you know, us Ford and Dodge guys (Ford guy here in case you couldn't notice) aren't bashing the Camaro. On the contrary, my dad and I ordered a 2SS/RS and can't wait for it to get here. Basically, we're just here to provide a balanced view of all muscle cars. Honestly, who wants to be on a forum that just blindly spews hatred of a competitor's car? That's why I'm not on a lot of Mustang forums; all you see is, "THE NEW CAMARO SUCKS, MY STOCK GT WILL RUN OVER THAT TURD BLA BLA BLA!" It's counter-productive. I'm just here to make sure the Mustang isn't getting an unfair rep. Hell, I'll even be the first to talk about its flaws and faults and what can be improved. So before you make another generalization, do some more research.

Yep, and the 2010's styling is atrocious...my 8 year old brother could have done better with a box of crayons. The handling is better than I expected, however.

I was in no way making a generalization and like i said iv been watching this site for a little over a year know so i have been around enough to know what im talking about, im not a member of a mustang site or challenger site, even though i think both cars in their own way are badass, talking about how i dont like their interior or how unoriginal the new model is or how the interior is no different from a 300, iv seen many posts on this site coming from competition car owners about how the interior is "hideous" or the outside "boxy" i just think that its a waste of time to join a camaro website if your gonna say negative things about it to anger the people that truly love it, everyone deserves their opinion but it should be more respectful and not in an attempt to bash another car especially when its a fellow american, im not trying to start any arguments cuz lets be honest they go nowhere on the internet, and to be honest i am a little perturbed it got moved to the off topic discussion section with topics like "what are you doing for mothers day"

I know there is a giant divide between GM and Ford but I choose to ignore it.

If I had enough money to own three or four newer muscle cars, I know for sure one of them would be a Mustang. I have no problem with Mustangs and I'm even a little envious of some of them that I see driving down the street. Some of them are looking strong these days.

Chevy will always be my fav but I'll drive anything that's fast.

Anyone see the West Coast Customs/Shelby Mustang on Street Customs. Who wouldn't want that car. Please.

Agreed, and had the Camaro not come out I too would probably own a Mustang, but it is a little hard to get through some of the post where the host car gets bashed. All 3 Muscle cars are cool, but outside of factual comparisons, personal opinions of the other 2 cars should be kept less in your face and to a minimum. Just my 2 cents.

Yea that's as ridiculous as Mustang GT owners wanting to race me as I put around in my Cobalt, only for the opposite reason lol. Yea you're gonna beat me, why waste the gas? Go race real cars.

Personally, for me, I could never own a Mustang. Period. They are everywhere, and I can't stand seeing them on the road, much less my own driveway.

I like all 3 and like one post said, if I had more cash to spare, I would own all 3. I had started out saving up for the GT500KR in 2005 but then saw the Camaro concept drawing and loved the look so I waited to see if GM would come out with that look and what it had for a drivetrain.... I like it, I ordered it and that is that. As far as the negitive posts go... I'll do my best... (well! I'll try harder0 to ignore them!

This discussion pops up every now and then. Short answer is, most are at least currious about the Camaro. Some are interested in buying one since they couldn't from 2002 till now. Durring that time they had to get something else, and the Mustang was the best choice.
