2010 Chevy Camaro SS: I'd Rather Have a Mustang
April 06, 2010
I just spent a week in a new 2011 Ford Mustang GT with new 5.0-liter V8. Then I switched into our long-term 2010 Chevy Camaro SS for a few days.
I'd rather have the Mustang.
And it's not because of one thing the Mustang does better or because of one thing the Camaro doesn't do. I just like the Mustang better overall, from its packaging to its styling to its details to the driving experience it provides.
Hell, it's even hard for me to explain why, but I prefer the Ford. It's the one I would spend my own money on. If money was no object I'd have a GT500. Black with red stripes, just like the one Ford had at the Chicago Auto Show back in February (I included a picture of it on the next page of this blog post.). Then I would lower it just a bit and bolt on a set of hardcore deep dish wheels.
Which of the three new Detroit-bred muscle cars hits your nitrous button?
