Chevrolet Camaro Bests Ford Mustang In Muscle Car Sales Race

For the first time in 25 years, the Chevrolet Camaro has outsold the Ford Mustang, beating the Blue Oval’s pony car by roughly 8,000 units, with 81,371 Camaros sold.

More surprising is that the Camaro managed to unseat the Mustang despite the lack of a convertible version. A droptop Camaro won’t bow untill mid-2011. Despite Ford’s far superior driving dynamics, build quality, and well…everything…the Camaro has somehow captured the hearts and minds of Americans, and the upcoming ragtop, not to mention the Z28 range-topper will only help keep the streak going. Now if only they would stoop to the 1980’s nostalgia of the 5.0 and introduce an IROC package.

    This news is not surprising! We love our new Camaro and it's FAR sexier than the mustang. Can't wait to get our ragtop!
