I was a huge Camaro fan just based on the exterior styling before driving the two, but after driving both, the Mustang won me over.

The Mrs. loves the way the Challenger looks over all of the three, but it is so heavy and slow...plus, my boss drives one; so, that was an instant disqualifier

Congrats on your new ride!
Isn't next years model basically the same, but it's getting a interior upgrade? If the pics of it I have seen on the net are right, it will still look like crap compared to the Mustang.

I decided life was too short to drive around with a roof over my head so started looking at a convertible. The Mustang Verts have been out longer and I had heard nothing but good things about them. The Camaro has just came out and one comparison I've read say they were leaking.

Plus I've always been a Mustang guy so I returned to the fold.

Not sure. I know basically the only change between 2010 and 2011 was the HUD. And even though I've owned Boston Acoustics speakers and subs before, I thought the sound of the Shaker 500 was better than the upgraded BA system in the Camaro.

Ford made some fantastic jumps in the 2010 (interior) and 2011 (powertrain) model years. At this point, I almost don't care about what Chevy is planning...I want to see what the 2014 and 2015 Mustangs will be

I drove a Camaro SS convertible AFTER my Mustang was ordered just to see what it was like. I really like the exterior of the Camaro although the dimensions are too big. It's a big car! I really did not like the interior of the Camaro at all and it actually seemed smaller inside versus the Mustang. It was comfortable to drive but just looked a lot cheaper inside than the Mustang. Also, the visibility was not good at all, even with the top down. Looking thru the rear view mirror with the top down all I could see was the rear deck basically and I'm 6'0". The powertrain was impressive though and it was a fun car. I had an '03 Mustang GT convertible before and I was set on the Mustang but there was no comparison on the interior and Camaro was also too big, IMO. The Camaro and Challenger are both nice cars, but their size is not conducive to being a 'pony' car. I think GM is getting ready to change platforms with the Camaro and hopefully that will help. And they really need help redesigning the interior. I did like the HUD though.

Sad that they never did anything about the Camaro's visibility. I remember test driving a mid 80's model (1985-1989) and feeling like the little old blue-haired lady with the dash board at eye level. I HATED that feeling! Like the peep-hole in a tank. Standing outside the vehicle, it was nothing but windshield. Strange that they still do that.
