Camaro owner or Vette owner... who wins in a fight.....?

So during our bowling league last night me and Bonnie got into an argument about our cars.

She's talking shit about how much better a vette is and they are trying to say that I'd trade my Camaro in for a Vette if I had the chance straight across.

My Camaro is faster than her Vette so I said I wouldn't. And besides, I'd take a Camaro over a Vette anyway.

Long story short, one of the mentions was when I said that the Camaro is a manlier car than a Vette.

Now this was all in good fun and we were playing around and having fun with the topic and Bonnie told me that having a mullet does not make you tough.

So I said, neither does an office job and a sweater wrapped around your shoulders.

Anyway, it's a typical Vette vs Camaro ribbing that me and Bonnie tend to get into.

My question here, just for the fun of it, is this................

If you was a Camaro and a Vette, both in stock trim of course (because mods can give deductions on the owners) and you had to bet your life on it, who would you pick would be the winner in a fist fight, the Camaro owner or the Vette owner?

Yes, I know it's a stupid question but it's a fun topic. There are many ways to present it but it is what it is in this thread.

Camaro owner FTW, more older men and ladies drive Vettes so in a fist fight I'd normally pick the Camaro owner.

Now in your personal situation I kinda think Bonnie would win a fist fight :p

Camaro owner -
My logic is this. I'm 6'5 280 and absolutely don't fit in a Corvette but do so comfortably in my Camaro. IE leading to larger people in Camaro vs the Corvette.

Yes my logic is flawed Haha

Well, if you follow the typical stereotpyes:

Camaro Owner - Drunken hillbilly redneck

Covette Owner - Older bald man with a tiny wee wee


..... Guess ya gotta go with the redneck.

Coming from a C6 Z06 it really depends. I daily drove my vette and it wasn't comfortable after modding. It would have been nice to have for weekends or track use only but I prefer the camaro for daily driving.

As the owner of both, I'd have to say the Camaro. Most of the Corvette owners (save a few) are pretentious buttheads that would rather settle the argument in court vs. a parking lot throw down. Now, those that would, rather participate in the parking lot throw down, would kick the crap out of 95% of the Camaro owners.

I know of two local Vette guys that are rather large gentlemen and would be very capable of putting someone in the ICU.

I also know of Camaro owners the same way. (I've also seen some really dainty men driving big rigs and jacked up trucks..)

Don't think the car has anything to do with it.

No more so than big boobs and blonde hair makes for a dumb woman or big shoes on a guy makes for a large "(cough)"...

Yup... There has been more than one occasion where a small individual has torn the crap out of someone much larger.

someone email Michael Bay and ask him to knock out a Camaro vs. Corvette transformer movie..

then you will have your answer..

until then, metinks we shouldn't be knocking same brand.. the REAL question is which would win in a fist fight, Camaro or Mustang,


and dammit, if the Camaro didn't open a can of whoop ass on that Mustang:

I'm not gonna judge on this one, that would be awfully pretentious of me. If I had a Corvette, I might make that call. :emoticon7:

OMG................

I started quoting posts to comment on but I'll just say you guys are killing me.

Agree for the most part with all. I've not heard an answer I disagree with yet.

Cept Bonnie kicking my ass.



PS, I forgot to add a poll. ...... Oh, and if you own both then you fall into the Camaro category as my point was that a guy who'd own a Camaro is typically tougher than a Vette guy. I'd bet 75 to 80% of them.

What you mean by TMI?

If it's the language I'll have it changed.

Other than that it's a funny topic.
