I suggest you do your own research on this. Is oil really from plants and animals? Does oil renew itself? Have scientists observed the how oil is created in the ocean? Research these questions and come to your own conclusions but the facts might surprise you.

I hate all camaros after 1970. They are ugly as hell. Mustangs have been good looking (except 73-79 those are ugly) never want to own a camaro. But corvettes are a different story

Re: mustang vs. camaro

Lord have mercy..

I dont know anyone who would trade their Stallion in for a heavy slug.
The only respect i have for the camaro is the first generation.

Ahem, points as to why i love Mustangs better than Camaros. (With MLA citations..)

- when comparing the 2011 Mustang 5.0 conv. to the 2011 camaro ss conv. "The problem for Chevy is that we Can't think of a single thing the camaro does better than the Mustang."
"Evans and i liked how the Mustang handled better, as did our entire testing crew.."
" 1st place Mustang GT Convertable, a lovable and affordable performance car, top or no top, it's hard to over state how wonderful the new 5.0 is. 2nd place, camaro ss convertible, while we prefer the conv. to the coupe, the camaro is just too flawed to challenge the Mustang's American performance Hegemony." (pg. 84 Lieberman).
- Ford Mustang came out in 1964 (1/2). A hungry market was in search of a car and Ford created this beast, the first pony car of its class. Two years later Chevy/GM was swamped by Ford, they didn't have a pony in their stable and they were left in the dust. So they came out with the chevy camaro or they would fail. ( take note chevy knew this car was coming out a year before it did)
- "My question, then, is does GM's CEO (who is it this week, Akerson?) lie awake at night wondering why his company sells the worst steering wheel and shift knob in the modern history of the automobile? And if he doesn't lose sleep over this fact, why not? Same goes for GM's North American president and reputed car guy Mark Reuss. How can he let this stand? Why doesn't "New GM" fix this? It's inexplicable, especially considering how long GM's had the Camaro Convertible in the pipeline. I first stood next to the concept in May of 2007. How was such a vital, fatal flaw allowed to come to market, twice? Also, the A-pillar is still as thick as my thigh (and I'm fat), so left turns are acts of blind (get it?) faith. Right turns aren't as bad, but are still compromised by all the OnStar garbage surrounding the rearview mirror. That's actually ironic, Alanis, as OnStar is supposed to be about safety. The lack of visibility still rattles your confidence. All that said, Evans and I both dug how much less tomb-like the convertible feels compared to the coupe.

Then there's the folding soft top. It leaked. At first Evans noticed a small, insubstantial leak on the passenger side. Nothing major, just a few drops on the A-pillar, and after all, we were living through the Storm of the Decade. Maybe it wasn't even leaking? Maybe somehow water just got in? Then I took the Camaro home for the evening and the next soggy morning I was greeted to a small downpour all over my right knee when I shut the door. Next, during our waterlogged, go-for-broke photo shoot the rear window popped out of the fabric. This was maybe the fourth time we lowered the top. We had to use black tape to hide the gap. We called GM, eager for an explanation about why the roof of its brand-new convertible was leaking. The excuse we got back was that this particular car is an "early build" and that the glue wasn't given enough time to cure. Subsequent cars will have better roofs. Um...okay" (pg. 82 Lieberman)
- from April 17, 1964, through April 16, 1965, a record number of sales for a single vehicle model during one production year.[/FONT] During the first two years of Mustang sales, Ford generated net profits of $1.1 billion on Mustang sales alone." (pg. 1 Ford Introduces the Mustang).
- The Ford Mustang generated the class of Pony cars, the camaro is in that class, it is a "pony car" therefore, it will always bow down to the 'Stang in its name.
- "Our choice of the Mustang GT conv. as the winner comes as no shock. By no means a bad car, the 2011 Camaro Convertible's flaws run too deep. Now, we're well aware of the fact that for many (if not most) of the people out there buying Camaros and Mustangs, the decision is ultimately a religious one." "The Camaro, on the other hand, is only half-baked."
-the camaro is heavier than the Mustang and has to make up in hp for it, it is not more powerful than the Mustang.
- THE CAMARO DIED OUT IN 2002, THE MUSTANG HAS GONE ON FOR ALMOST 50 YEARS.
-"Plus there's the fact that the Camaro is based on an Australian sedan -- not a sports car chassis -- whereas the Mustang is purpose-built. There's also the fact that Ford has been continuously improving the S-197 since 2005."
- 4th Generation of camaro was completely designed for looks, not performance.
-The Mustang's a different story. "(Mustang) This car makes me want to do bad things. Dangerously bad things." Evans' voice crackled over the radio after driving the Mustang about 140 feet. While the Chevy is much improved, it's still not competitive with the Ford.
- i race camaros daily, I have never been beaten.
- in a local shop where two 2011 camaro owners work, they wont race Mustangs because they know the limits of their "friends" (heads up camaro means friend) and they know they will loose.
-This list goes on and on but if i keep writing, i'll slow down the site.

Take note i do have respect for the camaro, i have driven and raced a 2011 myself, i have rode in the classics, i know how they compare to each other.

Dont eat me alive, ive raced both, buying a new cam will be the worst choice of this poor man's driving career when i could pull up hundreds of articles and videos on Mustangs vs. Camaros and Mustang has won Every. single. one.

Lieberman, Johnny. "Rain Dance - Rode Hard and Put Away Wet Camaro Vs. Mustang: Topless in the Rain." Motor Trend Vol. 63, No. 4 Apr. 2011: 78-84. Print. 2011 Chevrolet Camaro SS Convertible vs 2011 Ford Mustang GT Convertible Comparison - Motor Trend

- Ford Mustang came out in 1964 (1/2). A hungry market was in search of a car and Ford created this beast, the first pony car of its class. Two years later Chevy/GM was swamped by Ford, they didn't have a pony in their stable and they were left in the dust. So they came out with the chevy camaro or they would fail. ( take note chevy knew this car was coming out a year before it did)

Technically the first pony car came in 62. It was the plymouth barracuda. Ford took the idea of the small car with a lot of motor & ran with it. The mustang gained popularity & ruled the market. If the barracuda would have taken off like the stang did they all probably would have been known as fish cars & not pony cars. Believe me when I say I am no fan of chrysler at all. You know what MOPAR stands for, Made Of Parts Already Rusted.
I'm pretty sure the mustang was originally built on the falcon chassis, which I don't think was a sports car.

True - I just tried to keep my rant as short as possible, I forgot to add that in there thanks. I have an article that explains the pony car class vs. Cuda but im on my phone and don't have it on here.

And don't think im a camaro hater I really do love the car - I just get so riled up when people say its better than the Mustang! Okay. Rant is over.

Carry on

Personally I like the way the new SS looks!... But if I had to pick just one... It would be the new 5.0!.. It performs just as good if not better and for a couple thousand less then the SS!!!

+1

I have never owned either before i bought my GT...i really wanted the Camaro more but when it came down to it, i couldn't pay that much more for a car that was outperformed in every way...

Now that i look back it was a GREAT decision, as i love my Mustang more and more each day!
