I have always been a GM guy and Camaro fanatic, but if I was told that I would not be able to buy a New Camaro when they came out.

I would be buying one of these. I almost bought one in the last Mustang body style.

A 2005 Mustang GT with the Cervini "C" series body kit is the epitemy of the newest generation of Mustang. The GT500 styling looks ugly.

It always sounds strange to me to hear someone talk about Cervini's. Especially when they're as far away as California. It's about 15 miles from where I live.

I can tell you that you are wrong. I am an active poster on
many different Mustang forums and am the moderator of one
and I can tell you that I have posted up pictures of the new
Camaro various times so have other users and I can tell you that
they like it and don't have a problem with it. If you go in there with a
good attitude you will be treated nicely if you go in there thinking you
are better it will not be tolerated.

Which is how it should be. It's done here with mustang owners (normally)

you know.. i dont think to much of mustangs outside the 66-70 range. and i do happen to like the 05- present mustangs. even though we've seen so many we could probaly never see one again and be just fine.

and as for old camaros... i would take a 69' camaro SS over any kind of mustang from any year. Doesnt get any better than that.

Even though one day i WILL own a 1969 302 BOSS mustang

Wow no love for Mustangs. Its sad there is love for Camaro's on Mustang forums. I like the 1965-1968 Mustangs a lot. After that I like the 1999-2009 Mustangs.

You wanna see hate for the poor Mustang, go to LS1Tech. They're hardcore over there.

There are a lot of spy photos of the 2010 'Stang refresh, unfortunately the entire car is bagged even moreso than the Camaro was in its "self-doubt" days. The headlights on it are more 1970'ish inspired and the tail lights... eh... I dunno what to make of them. Kinda ugly.

I don't know about the head lights either. I like the current Mustang body style.
I guess I will know weather I like the new look or not when Ford officially reveals the face lifted Mustang.

Hey, Mustang is pretty cool. It's just some innocent joking and competition - partly of jelaousy, because Ford guys got their toy first

Well hopefully the wait for our Camaro will be worth it.

This must be the right place to ask this:

Does anyone out there have a feeling for what the Mustang crowd is saying about all the new Camaro news and rumors floating about? I don't frequent any mustang forums but if anyone does, what are they saying?

I mean, are they sticking their heads in the sand and ignoring the Camaro hoping it's going to go away, or are they lamenting the fact that it puts them to shame, or are they in denial saying that the Camaro is too good to be true, or are they bagging on the Camaro for feeble reasons?

It would be very interesting to see if they are scared and how they are reacting.

Or are they impressed? Animosity isn't the ONLY possible reaction to the car.

(Of course, I don't visit any of those forums either, so......)

Some of the more honest, dignified members are probably impressed by the car... maybe relishing and appreciating the fact that Chevy has heeded the call and is adding another testament to this modern-day muscle car mania. Otherwise, most of them are poking fun at it, similar to how we do to Mustangs. It's all in good rivalry. We should be thankful for the Mustang. If it isn't as powerful and influential as it is, we wouldn't be comparing Camaros to it because there'd BE no comparison... but there is one. Or else, we'd be treating Mustangs like Civics. Camaros and Mustangs are both Pony Cars with V8 engines and both of them are always finding ways to outsmart eachother. Just the way of the world.

I can answer that question for you. Many think the Camaro will pass away again after a five year period probably because of gas prices and weak sales.
Others have doubts that it will even make it into production and if so they think it will be to late because if should have been relased last year with Transformers. Others think that it will be heavy and there will not be many on the road. I have seen many though with their S197's just saying "Bring It". Another thing is the Challenger is almost here so the Mustang has other things to think about. The SRT-8's for 2008 is already sold out and its going around that the full 2009 lineup is taking orders with the V-6 making 250HP and the R/T 5.7L HEMI making 370HP.

The only problem is that he will probably have a few mods under his hood by then.

our neighbor here in San Marcos is a die hard Ford guy... he recently bought a 2006 Stang... he was all talking about how great it feels and the 5spd auto and blah, blah, blah... I brought the SS home the other day for a couple days of driving to keep the battery charged... as Naomi and I were leaving, he was leaving with his wife in the Stang... I pulled up next to him and said, "hey, when you want to race that auto car of yours against our auto car?"... to which he replied, "not until I get my blower" dontcha just love a Mustang owner who knows his position in the world?

As for my take on the Camaro, I think the Bumblebee that I saw in the auto-show trumps the new Mustang in looks every day of the week. It is going to take a spectacular re-designed Mustang to even come close in my opinion...
