Do you think Mustang or Challenger owners get the same attention as the Camaro?

There isn't near the attention to my car that there was back in 2009. I literally couldn't go any where that someone didn't want to talk about the car. It actually got to the point of being annoying. I still get an occasional compliment which is nice and no longer annoying.

I wonder if the owners of the new Mustang or Challenger's get the kind of attention that the Camaro's get? I really like the Challenger and would like to own one, not so much the Mustang.

Problem with the Challenger's is that they are dead slow.

The 2015 Mustang will probably attract alot of attention just as it did when they released the retro style in 2005...

Yup mustangs i see very often dont think they get much attention since theres so many unless its pretty modded, i would say challengers get a bit more attention than camaros considering theres less of them on the road than camaros and mustangs

The fact that there are MILLIONS of V6 Mustangs around, driven by HS kids kinda ruins the mustang being special...

Only car people like us will notice a GT500, Boss, Mach 1, etc, etc.....

I never liked any of the Saleen or Roush cars....thought they looked like the spent too much time on the autozone accessory isle....lol

Yep I agree I think the V6's in any of these cars like Camaro, Mustang or Challenger kinda ruins what they are, which is Muscle Cars however the V6's keep the models afloat because more people can afford a V6 than V8. I never liked the Roush or Saleen's either....

The mustang doesnt really seem to get much attention because there are soo many of them on the roads. Challengers get a lot of attention from my experience, more so than the camaros I would guess simply because I see a lot of them here in california. Chrysler has a lot of bright colors for the challengers also. There are less challenger on the road than mustangs and camaros so that is probably a big determining factor.

It should for $50k, a SRT8 should be matched with a ZL1 or a GT500 and then contest is over.

It wasnt meant to put down V6 owners, in fact read my post. V6's keep the models afloat because a V6 is more affordable than a V8...

There are more people than one might imagine that own a V6 Camaro not just because that's what they could afford. Trust me.

To answer your question, yes. It kind of gets annoying sometimes but a lot of the times people talk about the cars they had and how my car brings back memories of when they were younger. Although, a lot of times people think I did everything to the car myself and when they find out that it is all stock and done by Ford that's when you peak their interests and the questions start flying.

Around here, Camaros are a dime a dozen. V6's galore, I know of 2 1LE's areound, 3 ZL1s and a handful of SS's

Even though we have no shortage of fellow members chiming in every chance they get slamming the taillights of the redesigned 2014's - I have had my 14 SS since December and have had a lot of folks compliment the redesign and ask me plenty of questions...now it seems the compliments have doubled since I added the gloss black ZL1 replica rims.

The V6 always was in the muscle cars! So no your statement about the v6 ruining what they are, is just plain idiotic! I think a lot of v6 owners could afford a SS, I know that I could! I barely drive it ! Because it's just a weekend car but I don't go nowhere! Just to the store LOL.....

The V6 is part of the muscle car history! Ppl need to read about muscle cars and pony cars!

Mustangs, camaros, and challengers get attention...who gets more doesnt really matter. They all look good. Where I live 5.0 Mustangs (not as many believe it) get the most because there are TONS of 5th gen camaros. Only the 392 challengers stand out.
