For those of you saying this is biased, it's based on an owners survey - it sounds like Camaro and Challenger owners just like their car better.

Is this some kind of joke?? The mustang is a much better performance car then the grossly overweight Challenger and the mustang outsells it 2 to 1, yet they put the Challenger in first place and the mustang doesn't even place?? LMFAO.

Another very real possibility is that the Camaro and Challenger owners have become very insecure about their car purchaces knowing they lost EVERY COMPARISON TEST to the mustang..and thus, scrambled like hell to fill out every survey they could find to try to give creedence that their car was "good"....

Meanwhile mustang onwers looked at the survey, KNEW their car was better then yawned threw it away and went for a drive...

Ok its just a theory but seriously....EVENTS LIKE THESE DO HAPPEN an affect surveys (college level statistics will teach you these types of occurrences do happen..rendering the results fairly useless)

The only types of stats that can be remotely taken seriously are double blind scientific studies using control groups...thats A FACT.

Polls are tradionally less than worthless.

Or.....perhaps John Q. Public filled out the survey and based their opinion strictly on the looks of the car.

The Camaro is cool because of Transformers.
The Chally IS a good looking car.

The Mustang is....well...just a mustang that has been on the streets for 6 years.

It's totally reasonable that the Stang wasn't mentioned....John Q. Public doesn't care about enthusiast test results.

They also teach you that you can make staistics say what ever you want! depending on witch side you favor.

ex: Camaro out sold mustang;
Shows graph of sales of camaro from 2009 to today next to same period sales of Mustangs.
ex2: Mustang out sells Camaro;
Shows graph of all mustangs sold from release date to today next to all camaros sold from its release date to today, including the 10year hiatius of SALEs lol.

edit: that was just an example, Camaro could of made up ten years of being off the market in two years of sales, highly unlikely i think though LOL.

Its all a trick!! gotta watch out for that especially those dirty politicians!! They cleaver!

Is that because most of the people with special orders were finally able to take delivery in june?

I don't get the fascination with the Camaro, but even as a Mustang owner, I have to acknowledge the appeal of the Challenger. Yes it is big, yes it is heavy. But--it is the only muscle car that seems to have been designed with a cohesive theme and commitment to a muscular look. It is gorgeous with its large panels of sheet metal, rich paint, and broad stance. I really like my Mustang, but the Challenger is just one awesome aesthetic design.

Funny, because I don't get the fascination with the Challenger. I guess it's pretty cool looking from most angles but I think the ass-end is pretty ugly, same thing with the camaro. And when you see the Challengers in person they are just so damn big and bulky. Just looks too much like a boat instead of a muscle or sports car.
