He is going to buy an Evo, Mustang, Camaro or Challenger?

Those are all pretty cool cars so I don't see what the problem is here. :P

If he wants the Mustang tell him to wait for the 2011 model with the 5.0 engine.

That should be quite a performer.

Bottom line...support your brother.

EVO = Fugly

No amount of power or handeling can fix that.

Also if he is now considering the Challenger than I would get that over a Mustang but still the Camaro is the current star.

His choice, not yours. Let him do what he wants. Then, go buy a Camaro and turn him into smoked texas bbq on the 1320'

Yup, I'm with Dave on this. Nothing wrong with the Mustang, IMO...to each his own. I will take a good, close look at the 2011 Mustang GT with the 5.0 6 speed myself....I am still toying with the idea of a Challenger, as well. As much as I like the SS, the inside is a bit small for me....yeah I will get used to it, but maybe next year an R/T in b5 will be in the garage next to our RJT 2SS.

It is all good, they are all fun cars.

It sounds like he likes the Mustang more. His money, his car. Be happy for him.

Small inside? I'm 5'11, have long arms, and I can't touch the passenger side door or the windscreen when I'm in mine! You must be huge!

Make sure and alert him that if he tries to park a Stang next to a Camaro overnight, it will be m.i.a. in the morning (it will cower and run in fear) and remind him that those Mitsus are the most overrated and uncomfortable cars on the road today. Plus they're ugly.

One more time
Mustang =
Evo V, VIII, and VXIIXVI12 =

Nothing wrong with any one of those cars, they are all awesome, and they all have huge potential (some more than others....)

I say, let him get what HE wants, and roll with him when you get your camaro.

Is your brother single? If so, and unless he has an aversion to getting more T&A than he can handle, he'd do better to get the Camaro. I own a GT500 vert and the Camaro, and hands down the Camaro gets more looks and calls than the GT500. I'm a married man, but if I weren't it'd be babes and burn-outs with the Camaro!
