So the market hasn't expanded. It's a really competitive market that has to be fought over. Fortunately the Camaro is simply the best looking car of the three.

That is an interesting point. It is possbile that people were buying Mustangs simply becase there was nothing else to buy during the Camaro/Trans Am/Chally "void" period, unless of course you wanted to pick up a Vette.
