Get what makes you happy but if you get one remember how cool everyone is at this site and don't act like a azz that most mustange owners are! Never figured that out. I tell them they have nice ride and all they can say my 1st vette was crap and now my 2SS is crap! Heck there both American muscle. We should all be proud to keep money in America and not sending it to Germany or japan! Good luck at whatever you get.

This statement made me chuckle. Have you not read some of the posts here on Cam5 ? It's littered with comments when someone disagrees with a Camaro statements and people go berserk. This site is actually infamous for it.

Its not the car, but people. SOME owners, for any brand they promote, are azzes. Not all.

You can modify all of your other complaints with a little work. The HIDs could run with floods with a few wiring changes. I'm sure a kit will become available for this. In fact, I'm certain that there is a kit somewhere to swap your fog lights with HIDs that could probably be wired to go with your other HIDs. Be creative. Custom parts are the difference between a car and your car.

I'd hate to see you get in the inferior alternative because it is more high-tech inside, but I can't make the decision for you. If that is your choice, we'll be seeing you in our rearview mirrors. It would be different if you were committed to the Mustang brand, but your loyalty is with GM. Buy what you love and do what you need to make it right for you.
Well said, sir!

My interior is fine, but I've only owned 1 ford in my lifetime (first and last) so I'm not the best one to ask.

The ford I owned was so bad, my 3 YO (at the time) would go get his boots and gloves when he went out with his mom because he was afraid it would leave him sitting along the road (again).

I finally gave my wife my Chevy truck and I drove the Tempo so it wouldn't cause her any problems, what a pile of junk!

Also, I hate how the HID's won't run in harmony with the flood lamps, why not? What's wrong with that GM?

I haven't fully made up my mind, and maybe I'll wait until the 2011 Camaro comes out to see what GM can bring, but for now, I'm not buyin.

GM is my favorite American car company, and I love Chevy, but I may take Ford's side on this one.


Convince me otherwise?

Nobody on Mustang sites does that when Camaro guys come on there?

Actually no. The mods will not stand for it. There are Camaro guys on TMS, Modular Mustang, Stangnet...some of the more notable stang sites. We welcome all car enthusiast, no matter what you drive.

Now the ones that come and go Rustang rustang blah blah you suck, CAMARO RULZES....well they just get the ban stick. There is a difference between supporting your brand, and acting like a 5 year old.

What I said is true. Peruse a few other sites and you will see the convo come up. One of the reasons I found out about this site is because a topic was going on about some of the things said here on Cam5. IS it as bad as it is made out to be ? Well not AS bad, but boy, this place has its moments.

If you've gotta have a stang at least wait until they get the 5.0 back in it...

I don't know if this is the case or not, but it sounds like the mustang is currently available and, like we all kno, the camaro has a wait list. It just seems like the reasons you listed for considering the Mustang(hid's with fogs and interior) are kind of minor. If you like the Camaro's exterior, horsepower, and various other little features, like remote start and tap shift this shouldnt be a hard decision...I would think it would be easier, not to mention more cost effective, to purchase a 1SS and customize the interior, not only would it be cheaper but you could make it exactly what you want.

I'll admit that i don't know what's included in the GT's premium or comfort packages but i personally think the 2010 facelift is a downgrade from the 05-09's. also, like others have said if you do decide on the mustang, at least wait til the 5.0. it would suck to drop nearly $40k on a car and have the next model year completely spank it performance wise.

Anyways, the decision is ultimately yours, i don't think anyone here is telling you the GT is a bad car, nor am i, but whichever one you end up choosing make sure your not settling either way due to availability

The Mustang is a good car, but with nearly 7 more years of recent production since the last Camaro rolled off the line, there are about 1,000,000 more of them on the road. The Camaro may not be low-volume production, but you won't see parking lots littered with them like the Mustang!

Why on Earth would anyone considering a Mustang GT not be waiting for the 2011's with the 5.0L? I mean would you really want to be yesterday’s news in about a year and still upside down on your payments when the new engine comes out in the same car you already have. Just seems silly to me if you’re going to go out and spend all that money on a Mustang GT already knowing a better one is on the way. You've already got the internet insight so you can't say you didn't know.

To the OP, tell me again why you are sorry? Both are fine cars and if you end up wanting a Camaro down the road, I'm sure it will be easy to pick one up at a good price.

Infamous for it. What a load of crap. News flash. This happens on all car forums, members defending their cars on their home site. It is nothing new.

Its not a load of crap actually. Go to some other forums and you will see Camaro5 name come up in many things, and 90% of the time its not positive. Heck, that's how I found out about this site.

Also there is a difference between defending and bashing. When you defend you are correcting a incorrect fact about a car you own. Bashing is, well that should not need to be explain. On the Mustang sites that are more notable, you do not have that going on simply because the mods do not allow it.

Like it or not, this is the reputation for Camaro5. I came to this site myself to see, and yes, I have found the rumors to be bloated a bit. But take one look at the close Hennessy vs GT500 thread, look at the person there, then follow his exploits to other forums, you tube, ect.....then you understand why people say what they say.

The Mustang sites I have been to have some of the same mindless idiots that bash anything not Ford or Mustang. The Mustang sites are not superior or worse in that respect than Camaro5 of any other sites. Idiots are everywhere.
