I like the inside of the Camaro from what I have seen. Still do not like the Mustangs I have sat it. What the heck is up with the speakers coming out over an inch out of the front doors?

Anyway there is black Mustang GT running around and the guy thinks he is so cool. Aways reving the engine and doing burnouts at the lights. We will see what happens when he comes up againt the Tephers!!

Oh yeah Tephers is another nickname of Steph's so I am naming my car that.

It was an original Cobra with the 428 SCJ. That was the first car I ever drove that had me shaking when I got out of it. Kinda like an excited, slightly scared, but wanting to drive it more, uncontrollable shake.
I would have to pretty much agree with that statement...the sound of an aftermarket exhaust with headers on a Mustang is as near perfect IMHO as possible. I also kinda liked the boxy look of the fox body stang' back in the day...other than that, the Camaro/Firebird, at least to me, has always had the edge on the complete package.

As far as interior, I think Chevy got it right...If I didn't see that "ball" shifter in the top picture, I would think I was looking at a Ford Explorer picture. There is just no character there. Functional, asthetically pleasing and reasonably tight, but it doesn't make a statement. So many times when you dare to be different your either the hero or the goat. The more I see the HVAC, the four gauge cluster and the tach/spedo, I like it. It is different, not cookie cutter...its something you've never seen before, its memorable. In a car designed for performance, ergonomics are the big thing anyway, you don't want an interior that may look good, but doesn't function. From what I gather this has been addresses in the Camaro as well. Last thing you want to do is be fiddling around trying to hit the right stereo preset doing 110mph through a tight curve. And the four pack gauges...I mean having a tranny temp and oil temp light is AWESOME...these are parameters that you NEED to know when driving your car hard, aside from adding an aftermarket piece like a dashhawk, there aren't too many cars that have this available as an option...this just goes to show their is FORM AND FUNCTION to this interior.

All my opinion, but I think the interior contest is a wash at best...based on ergonomics, character, quality, and function, at least for my money, the Camaro has the edge.

I happen to like the Mustang interior much better, and I have sat in both! I just am not about the design of the camaro's interior, for me it gets stale real quick, and the inability to change your stereo is reaaaal lame! IMHO

Oh yes he was and I beg to differ.......I have kept up with many. Its way too heavy. And how can you compare a 400hp car to a ricer. Its way faster than a GT and about as fast as a '10 Camaro SS.

Dont really know what the wager could be........Ill start a thread admitting I was wrong if they don't I guess. From the 0-60 numbers and quarter mile times the GT500 doesnt seem like a value for the price.
