Strange Request

Hey you guys this is kinda a strange request but I figured you guys could help me out better than anyone else, I am writing a paper for my college class tonight its a compare contrast essay and obviously I headed straight to mustang vs camaro. Heres the catch though, the paper has to show the two subjects in a different light or in a new perspective and since the topic has been done in every which way possible it's impossible for me to write on it. So I am asking you guys if there is any ideas you can come up with that have a new take or perspective on cars in general doesnt have to necessarily be about mustangs but it helps since I know a little bit about them.

What about comparing and contrasting modern manufacturing with how financial exchanges (like the stock exchange) work?

Pick 2 and just write it in YOUR view. Might help if you also sat in a camaro or driven one. I suggest you pick 2 new topic, with which you have had experience with the 2 items in question. Cant do a compare and contrast if you have experience with both.

There's all the things listed here, or you can talk about brand loyalty and how it was affected by the government bailout. I was a die hard Mopar guy til that. I was also looking at Camaro prior to my Mustang(s).

Writing about the bailout would be a good idea. Also the whole brand loyalty topic. For example: I grew up on a Chevy house, but I love fords/for brands. I have owned oldsmobles, Pontiacs, chevys, but I always had a ford also. A ranger, explorer, mustang and etc... Talk too some people you know who only buys certain brands. Ask why, they do, what made them pick that brand to begin with. My reason was simple, my father had a Z28. I wanted too be different but similar, and the mustang is what I wanted. Even too this day we have out digs about the cars.

just a Strange suggestion (not easy to write) try to see if the V6 guys get more respect with Chevy or Ford

2012 V6 traded in for a 2017 VW GTI.

Bingo! Beat me to it. Why not do a comparison in terms of which one is more American. Take into account part production and assembly.
