Camaro Outsells Mustang

Camaro Outsells Mustang - For the first time since 1985, the Chevy Camaro outsold the Ford Mustang over an entire year, with 81,371 buyers to the Mustang's 73,716. It's a great day not just for muscle cars, but for America. Here's why.

To many people, focusing on which Rust Belt relic sold more two-door sports cars seems as misguided as a mullet-growing contest. Big V8s are an endangered species, and rear-wheel-drive shreds fuel economy. For goodness sake, the 2010 Ford Mustang has the same rear suspension technology as a Conestoga wagon. Who cares?

We all should, because the Camaro and Mustang (and Dodge Challenger) are no longer rolling museums of automotive technology, old bits in shiny packages sold to young men with too much money. They're as advanced as anything GM and Ford build without an electric motor, and they're evolving fast.
