I hate to say it =(

My brother recently got a C class mercedes and I drove it for about an hour today. I have to say that I enjoy the feel of the ride better than my camaro. It is nowhere near as fast as mine but the drive is so much better in my opinion. I have come to notice that the camaro feels like a tank with the windows down even lol. Although it isnt a bad thing i like that tank feeling as well lol. Does anyone else feel this way?

You're comparing a luxury car to a muscle car

I ate an apple the other day, and it wasn't as tasty as the orange I ate last week.

You really compared a Mercedes Benz to a LS camaro?

What were you expecting?

I feel that way. Thats why I own both an Audi and the Camaro. Audi for comfort and Camaro for annihilation. I still prefer the Camaro over the Audi though for daily driving duties.

My brother's Lexus LS rides much better than my Camaro also. Thing is that his car is boring, boring, boring.

Maybe you should just trade over to a Cadillac or something...the Camaro is the sports car. I agree though my 13' 2SS is pretty comfy.

I like the comfort and feel of my Camaro just as much as my ex's Mercedes C300. I thought the C300 was kinda stiff.

For the love of.... The camaro is not a muscle car. its a pony car. Specially the guy's 2ls. Thanks to regulations nowadays the srt8 392 is as close to muscle car as one can get these days. The lack of true muscle cars doesn't bump up the pony car up a notch by default. Doesn't work that way. That being said, comparing the way different cars is crazy. Hell the wife's '13 fusion feels more comfortable than the camaro. Doesn't mean I'm going to trade cars with her anytime soon though...

I had a 09 C300 as my DD, bought it brand new and traded it in January for my SS. Just way different cars. The MB is great at what it does, comfort with some power, good fuel mileage, great handling and ride, etc. The car is just no fun. That being said I loved that MB but wish I would have gotten my SS sooner

curious.. what/who defines which car is a muscle car? what's the criteria? i'm guessing there's a certain line which divides the muscles from the ponies.. this is a serious question.. i'd like to know how people classify them

.:edit:.

The Merriam-Webster dictionary defines muscle cars as "any of a group of American-made 2-door sports coupes with powerful engines designed for high-performance driving."

I went from a 2010 Camaro SS to a 2008 BMW 750I and I honestly cant wait to get into a 2014 Camaro. I HATE this luxury feel and all these useless gadgets! I need my pure muscle back!

I always get a kick when people quite Wikipedia as fact. Anyways the challenger, mustang, firebird and camaro started the pony car class to go with the charger, torino, gto and chevelle ss muscle cars. Like I said, that those cars are gone, charger turned into a 4door sedan, didn't automatically bump the pony cars up a class...

Edit: I forgot the amc javelin to go with the rebel machine. I think Oldsmobile was the only one who didn't make a pony car to go along with the 442. Point is they don't "fall" in the pony car class. They created the class along with the mustang and the others cars mentioned...

if you have a chance, drive a 1930s Packard

very nice ride

Then drive an actual dinosaur-era muscle car from the 1960s and compare that to your Camaro
