search ebay for this item #220357080347. its a nice silver one and he's asking for 43.9k but i'll bet he'll settle for 40k. If you look at the c6 z06 history on ebay, you'll see that they do sell for 40k and sometimes a little less. There are other c6's on there now that will probably sell for about 40k. And believe me by the time the camaro comes out, the price might drop another grand or so for an 06 z06.

my mistake, thats still not within 5k. I didnt realize they were selling them for 31k; i thought they were 35-40k. I'd still rather shell out an extra 9k for a 7.0l

Some good pics of the production SS interior:

I'll be honest, the SS seats rock. But I find the forward instrument cluster to be rather unattractive. What's with the two giant humps for the speedo and tach??? The rest of it is fairly uninspiring....seems quite basic despite how amped up it looked in preproduction photos. Very strange layout.

I like the gauges built into the console. The seats are nice. Radio looks funny, wheel looks cheap, and the gauges look stupid. I also like the shifter.


If I had to choose between the 10' Camaro and 10' Mustang, I would pick the Camaro. I like the way it looks. It actually looks like the classic camaros. The new Mustang looks nothing like the classic mustangs.

Screw all this Camaro vs Mustang talk, GTO pwns all!!!!!!!
































j/k.



Seriously, though- Most buyers of either car are going to be loyalists and wouldn't consider the other regardless of how good it is. Just how it is. Looks are subjective, performance will be no contest, so it's obvious what will bring most customers into Ford showrooms. I personally believe the new Stang is great looking and a step in the right direction, it's just a shame it's still down on power. Excluding the new Camaro, the Mustang will have a lot of cars to compete w/. Price wise, the WRX and Cobalt SS; class wise, the 370Z and upcoming Hyundai Genesis. Me, I'd take a new Camaro over a new Mustang, but it's by a much narrower margin than I'd have guessed. But in reality, the '05-'09 GT's are just as good and much cheaper. And LS2 GTO's are going to be just as fast and much cheaper than the new Camaros. So w/ the new cars, all you're really paying for is being able to have one of the first ones. Once they've been out a little while, the novelty will wear off and the hype will go away. Too many people get caught up in the new car itch imo. I'd keep my GTO over buying either of these cars. And if I were in a position to buy a new Camaro the way I'd want it, I'd buy an E46 M3 instead, or as someone else already mentioned, go all the way and buy a used C6 Z.

the only thing i like about that is the steering wheel and possibly the seats

Honestly, scg.........I'd take an LS2 GTO anyday over the new Camaro. Hell, if I could have found a good deal on one back in 05 I might have one instead of the GT. I compare the Goat with the Camaro, and other than the LS3....the GTO has it hands down. IMO........it looks better and has a nicer interior. Plus.....it's actually LIGHTER.

I agree that the loyalist are gonna buy their fav no matter what. I do agree that the 2010 GT isn't really worth it unless all you care about is creature comfort. But if Ford does bring the heat with a new quad cam V8 after 2010, I'm gonna have to side with my Mustang loyalist buddies.....and go for the 5.0

I enjoy the fact that both my cars are paid off. I think none of the cars coming out right now are worth getting a new car payment.IMO Next month I will be taking a year long vaction and will see what the economy has to offer when I come back.

Anyone have some pics of the production 2010 GT interior so we can compare them to the SS interior shots on the last page? And I'm not talking about press release photos.

wow the interior of the camaro looks so cheap and ugly, just like the old ones always looked cheap.

The seats are nice, but aside from that no bueno.

lol, i'm with you! I think we think about this question hypothetically but in reality even someone gave me one or the other i would rather trade it in and get something better like an 07 escalade or an 06 z06. The new designs from car manufacturers are getting uglier and uglier and i never thought i'd say it but imo, dodge is making the most attractive cars on ratio than the other manufacturers. I like their charger, challenger, and their 300. I'm not a big fan of anything chevy makes now except the vette and ford lost me with the new 2010 design of their mustang.

No offense but thats a stupid argument. It has taken 10 years to barly compete against the LS1. 2000 LS1 would be even if not a tad bit better than the new 2010 mustang in the 1/4. Age has nothing to do with it.

Had been looking into getting either an 09 Mustang GT premium ( I like the exterior better than the 2010) or the new camaro ss. I like the exterior of both vehicles. I liked the interior of the Mustang much better ( based on online research for the camaro). Like I said I liked both cars but the Mustang just did it for me. I love the ride and the sound of the engine. I'm sure the ss will be just as exciting a drive. I am fully awary the ss can do 0-60 in 4.6 and the GT (stock) can only do it in about 5.2. I hardly concider that blowing the doors off maybe I'm missing something I make no claim to be a mechanical wizard. I'm in my mid 30's and have no plans on drag racing at every street light or bringing my car to the track. I got the vehicle cause its fun to drive, has more than enough power, and gave me the most bang for the buck. I think the future owners of both Mustangs and Camaros will be extremely happy. I know I am!

Being a ragtop man this was a really easy thing for me, especially since I like the 2005-2009 body incredibly more than the new one. But it came down to these requirements

Need ragtop
Need 5 or 6 speed stick
Need 4 seats
Need Rear wheel drive
Less than 40k.

If you aren't even looking at the cars, this really limits your selection, I think you're down to one. The fact that the Mustang looks and performs as well as it does is all bonus stuff. If I never had to deal with a dealer in purchasing or service, it would be perfect, anyway NOTHING comes close.

I've got a couple of the GT500 () and one or two of a cloth V6 (). Lemme upload them. They're not the best shots but they're decent enough.

Both of them felt and looked MUCH better than the 05-09s, made me a fan. I still don't like the rear end all that much but it does look better in person.

I love the way when it comes to the article they compare the prices of a V6 Mustang to a V6 Camaro, but when it comes to performance they compare the V8 Mustang and V6 Camaro....real fair.
