The battle between the two classic pony cars, the Mustang and the Camaro, started in 1965 when the first mustang was built out of off the shelf parts. Chevy then came out with their own heavier and more powerful camaro in 1967. From that point on, the pony car battle was on. There were always differences between the two cars. The Ford always had better handling and sharper steering while the Camaro had more power. When Ford came out with the Mustang Boss 302, it was the top of the line pony car. No one could beat the mustang. But when Chevy brought back the new and improved Camaro in 2010, it was more sophisticated and was beating the Boss 302 in many categories. In order to get back out on top of the Camaro ZL1, they came out with the new Shelby GT 5oo. This was arguably the best Mustang ever built. It has 5.8 liter turbocharged V8 with 650 horsepower and has been known to hit over 200mph. Although this car has astounding power, professionals have preferred the Camaro over the Mustang because it is simply more sophisticated. Its advanced suspension and quieter muffler makes the Camaro an easy car for around town yet extremely aggressive on the track. It all depends on what you want. Do you want a nicely made car that puts it all together or do you want a car with pure power to try and push it all out.
