I'm a fan of American muscle period, so I appreciate Camaro's, Challengers, and Mustangs equally. I've always been a GM guy though (until recently (too good of a deal to pass up)) so even though I liked all 3 pony cars it was definitely a Camaro for me.

I have seen the challenger and the new Mustang and they are not to bad. I think the Camaro is so much more to look at then those but that is my opinion. Gamaro girl all the way forever and allways!

I appreciate all great looking cars. Although I strongly favor the American over the foreign. Except for the exotics of course.

The only difference for me is the stripes. I have not decided if I want orange or black rally stripes so I'm going to keep it stripe free from the factory until I get her... I like these rims but they are heavy.



I'd prefer some forged black ones over these though but they would be at least 3 times more expensive.

This needed to be said, and you've said it perfectly and nicely. When I read comments like his, I'm thinking that somebody is getting a really big head and it makes me want to . I just hope he knows that it's not him turning heads..........IT'S THE CAR!! And anyone can buy one, but he'll never be able to buy any class that should go along with it.....I'm just sayin...

I don't want to be mean but a plain Challenger SE and a plain Camaro LS are not to fancy of a car to turn heads , well maybe a micro second if any ..
But if you were to compared it to the Challenger's R/T,SRT & 8 and then to any of the Camaro's LT's & SS's / RS , then i think the turning of the heads would be at both , but then the heads would turn back and stare at the Camaro's ...

Guess you should have been to the Adirondak Nationals this weekend. Only a few thousand people there. My LS got as much head turning as did the older cars,customs etc..

So you dont think 100,000 to 120,000 cars per year is mass produced?

Hell, Camaros are outselling even Mustangs right now.

I am VERY surprised to hear that your Challenger turns more heads than your Camaro!! I gets looks and pictures are taken of mine everywhere I go and I have had her for 3 months now. I had my ABM 1SS in a huge car show yesterday and took 1st place in the 1990-present category. I beat a very pretty blue Challenger, Ford GT, orange charger...just to name a few.

What's the point of this thread? I don't understand why Camaro owners talk about head turns so much. Does the 05+ Mustang turn heads? The Camaro will be right up there with it in a few months.

I don't really see this thread going anywhere but becoming a place to bicker.

"no"

"yes"

"no"

"I was kidding"

"liar"

"bs"

"prove it"

and so on...




Please keep this thread as productive as possible.

thanks,

ummm yes it is.

mass production is making a lot of a product, at lower costs, using an assembly line to do so, allowing quality control to be easily regulated.

if 120,000 a year isnt mass produced, what is?

get over yourself (or your car). yes the camaro looks good, but the challenger is one sweet looking car as well.

i see more 2010 camaros around here than i do challengers already.

and its a good thing you dont roll around this area revving at everything you see, you'd get your ass handed to you a lot. hell by 3 v6 mustangs that i know of lol.

my victory red 2SS RS is turning so many heads it unreal. And I have put over 8,000 miles on it and been in several states and everywhere I go I draw small crowds. It is slowing down some, I have had mine since July. I love my car! I did get flipped off for no reason by a stang in oncoming traffic. He was a hatter. It was probbly because I had passed him on the highway a few days earlier. 150 MPH feels great!

What do you call 100k per year? A factory custom?
