    If I liked big cars with lazy V8s I would have bought a Challenger. It's way more comfortable than the Mustang on a daily drive. I can sure understand why a lot of people buy them. In 2015 Ford redesigned the Mustang seats making them too narrow for me. It's one of the few things I don't like about the Mustang - crappy seats. IMO it's also too big of a car as well.

    Although I've had about enough of FCA quality with the Jeeps I own (and have owned), I'd love to have a Scat Pack Challenger in the garage next to the Mustang if I had the room. Ordered to my specs, of course.

    A buddy had a nice R/T a couple of years ago (until my '15 prompted him to buy a '16 GT/CS), and I understand the appeal.

    I haven't see any Mustang commercials in a very long time. If Ford would advertise the Mustang like FCA does Challenger then Ford would sell a hellva lot more Mustangs

    Ford is cutting most of their car lineup, isn’t that even funnier?

    Sales are fine you troll. ATP is what matters. GM is making huge money on each Camaro while Ford is scraping for pennies with the petty fleet sales. Mustang owners got scammed paying more for less performance hahahahahahaha

    Did you pay over MSRP? We need to get ATP up so we can win the forum wars.

    It is more satisfying to drive a well engineered car than a noisy advertising campaign.
    Every time a challenger or charger spots me it rushes up and does something stupid.
    Kiss M A. There is a certain species of driver in this state, identified by scientists,
    as "buffunomissourianus". Most of them drive challengers. When I wrote I understand
    the appeal of the big body big horse challenger i did not write that i admire they who
    challenger appeals to. If you make a taxi cab fast all you have is a fast taxi cab.
    OMG challenger sucks!

    I heard today that GM is planning to lay off ~15,000 North American workers and cut some cars out of their lineup. Yes - I think you are 100% right with using the word embarrassing.

    I do hope they don't cut the Camaro or Corvette.

    I don't have a feel for GM keeping or axing the Camaro. I suspect that Camaro is not a profit center for GM.
    C5G rolled out May 2009. C6G rolled out Winter '15/'16. Come May '19 the Camaro bring-back is ten years old. GM tooled two plants for a decade of production. Since the top seller C5G sales years there is a downward curve on Camaro sales.. Ford tooled Flat Rock for 10 years of S197. C5G led sales for the second half of S197, but S197 sales were strong at 92% of C5G. That is a success for the live axle S197 tooling. Probably the S550 Flat Rock retool was more efficient than pouring new concrete on virgin ground. S550 delivered winning sales for Mustang and I suspect has paid off the tooling. Muscle/Pony car sales are depressed right now. Ford can carry Mustang and realize a marginal profit. Camaro is a red ink stain on the GM books. Only corporate pride in the badge will save Camaro.

    In the last year of S197 production it out sold the c5g and as far as corporate pride goes there is none only high profits and high stock prices mean anything.

    If auto companies are going to make massive layoffs in the US the government needs to remove all there tax breaks and levy heavy import taxes on all car they import into the US.
