You want exclusive,buy a Challenger,i think they're only building 30-40K a year as opposed to probably 100K each of Camaros and Mustangs......or don't buy a pony car at all,it's not like anyone couldn't afford them at some point,unless it's a Cobra R or some other rare variant.

Maybe not,i bought a bright red '95 Camaro new and even though it was 2 years since the redesign,that car got an enormous amount of attention. In fact,it's been the only car until our '07 Mazda CX7 to have caused such a stir and we've owned everything from Bimmers to Miatas to Mustangs.
I think the '05-09 Mustang was like that,it still feels new to some people and i think the new Camaro will be like that also.

You know That Gm wants to sell these Camaro's like Hot cakes

and the Camaro is a mass produced car

That's like Buying a Civic and wanting nobody else to have one because you want to be original

All i can say is Get used to seeing alot of Camaro's around It means GM is doing well

I think the mustang will still outsell the camaro but I think the camaro is priced right to take a big chunck of the market from Ford. Sorry guys, but I've always been a mustang guy and currently drive a '99 mustang, but this '10 camaro just looks too good for me to pass up. I'm crossing over to the Camaro, I'm sure I'm not the only mustang guy who has been converted by this camaro.

idk,
The General needs the money.
and i dont think they will have any problem moving camaros,
its obviously the best of the two...
but most stang buyers are ignorant and want a pony car with a low price...imo.
and with the stang still being cheaper, i think it will win.
it doesnt matter to me either way, i will have cammy.
and it will carry a lot more prestige, being the less common of the two reagard less of the sales numbers for the next few years, Ford has flooded the streets with them for 7 years

GM has some awesome products the new Malibu,Traverse,New 2010 Equinox and many many others so we know the have some awesome quailty. Now they just need to get the public to believe in them and with time they will. The Camaro will be the king.

Price and availability get buyers.

Production of the F-Body ceased due to slow sales......Ford dominates the market by building 130-140,000 Mustangs per year.

I hear ya, but I've never seen people check out a car like the Camaro is
getting checked out. I'm telling you this car throws people into a frenzy.
Sometimes the attention I get can be a little overwhelming.

That's a good thing.....You won't see Challengers and Camaros everytime you turn the corner. It's good for those owners that appreciate value with their purchases.

It's a bad thing for GM and Dodge because they loose market share to Ford.

Hmmm you need to consider people being afraid of the brand for what just happen to Pontiac...That is a consideration to look at.

You know there is a reason you see lots and lots of mustangs all the way from fox's to s197s......its because they last. Mustangs are the TRUE pony car and will not be going any where soon...

BTW Welcome back Camero. Come on in and hang around this time

Friend selling me Mustang BS

So I've obviously been talking a lot about the new Camaro and how awesome it is. Of course I have friends that are Ford and Dodge guys, so I've been having the usual arguments of why the Camaro is going to kill them both Well, one guy on my paintball team is either making up some SERIOUS BS about the V6 Mustang, or is being lied to himself and is too stupid to see through it.

Anyway, he's trying to tell me that his dad has a V6 Mustang that is getting 32 MPG on the highway.... Also, he says that the 2010 Mustangs start at $12,000 I immediately stated that wasn't possible, but he seemed pretty strong in his beliefs so I just let it go. Though any story I get from him I'm going to be thinking twice before I accept it now...

Me and another friend kept trying to tell him there was no way that would be possible. I mean, a new FOCUS doesn't even start at 12k lol. But he wouldn't listen, so whatever. I'll let him sound like an idiot
