My previous comment didn't post...

I was thinking of getting a ZL1 or a GT500 but I just got a 2011 Corvette with 1600 miles on it for 45k OTD after taxes and license etc. I test drove a Challenger after I got the vette and now think that if I was ever going to get a "pony" car that is what I would get.

I like this. I have absolutely nothing to back that up. It's probably worse than every other car in every measurable respect.

But I just like it.

tacos813: Ford went all out with the airbags, damn.

Dual front, front side, f/r side, front head, f/r head, front curtain, f/r curtain, front side/head; f/r side/head, front knee, driver knee, passenger knee, pedestrian


So, it turns into a giant cannoli?

Axel_Gear: Mustang: Faster on the strip, faster on the track, The better "performance" car, Cheaper.
Camaro: Better everyday driver, Effectively close enough to the mustang in performance that most people will never notice.


What sort of bonehead would buy either of these cars at $55k if it was their everyday driver? I could see buying something like these if it was a second car just for fun, but when every other car in the price range is infinitely superior to live with every day, why on earth would you buy either of these as your daily?

I had a Mustang when it was fun and cheap. It was the best car I ever owned. But I'd have to cut out about 90% of my braincells before I thought it was a good idea to drive one as my daily car for the price they're asking for these types of cars now.

I need to drive to work on the highway in traffic, not the left lane on the drag strip. That's just a crazy thing to buy for anybody with a normal commute...

The Camaro reminds me of those terrible Transformers movies. Advantage: Mustang.

I will sum up the article

"The mustang gets better gas mileage, was faster in the 1/4, faster on the track even after "serious (brake) fade" and easy to drive without computer assistance, but we expected the car to be worse and the ride was bumpy sometimes, so the camaro wins!"

Both are too heavy. Let me bring up a relevant discussion from "The Restaurant At the End of the Universe" by Douglas Adams:

The next one was a big one and thirty yards long - a coach built limoship and obviously designed with one aim in mind, that of making the beholder sick with envy. The paintwork and accessory detail clearly said "Not only am I rich enough to afford this ship, I am also rich enough not to take it seriously." It was wonderfully hideous.

"Just look at it," said Zaphod, "multi-cluster quark drive, perspulex running boards. Got to be a Lazlar Lyricon custom job."

He examined every inch.

"Yes," he said, "look, the infra-pink lizard emblem on the neutrino cowling. Lazlar's trade mark. The man has no shame."

"I was passed by one of these mothers once, out by the Axel Nebula," said Ford, "I was going flat out and this thing just strolled past me, star drive hardly ticking over. Just incredible."

Zaphod whistled appreciatively.

"Ten seconds later", said Ford, "it smashed straight into the third moon of Jaglan Beta."

"Yeah, right?"

"Amazing looking ship though. Looks like a fish, moves like a fish, steers like a cow."
