I didnt have any history with either camaro or mustang, so when looking for my first piece of american muscle I was very open to either option
I had rental mustangs (V6's) many times when travelling, so last time I travelled I paid to upgrade to a camaro for the week. Again it was the v6 model and auto
I thought this was a good way for getting a feel for the car before I made a purchasing decision, even through I was going to go for the V8 versiosn of either.
I really wanted to like the camaro, it was a newer design, more power etc But having driven one for a week I just didnt get on with, my head was touching the roof (car had sunroof), visibility was really bad on the rear 3/4s and when reversing
When people ask me why I went for the mustang I say the following
The mustang is a reasonably sized car, but when you drive it, it sort of shrinks around you, makes you want to drive it and have fun. The camaro is the opposite, when you drive it, it feels bigger than it really is, and I never felt that I wanted to push on it.
I know some people moan about boot size, that wasnt a consideration for me on either
Interior is a very personal choice, I hated those metalic plastic silver door panels on the camaro V6 (dont know if they are on all of them or not), Personally I wasnt to keen on the rest of it either, but that wasnt the key consideration.
It was the way the car felt large and intimdating when driving it that made the decision easy for me, I didnt even bother to drive an SS a V8, just went and bought the mustang
Obviously I'm biased now, but really wasnt then :-)
