Shouldn’t it be the Camaro since it is faster?

It's America's longest running continuous production sports-type car. Not even the Corvette can claim that.

There are impossible-dream cars like Lamborghinis and McLarens, then there are possible-dream cars like Mustangs.

The 03/04 Cobra was my dream car. Now my unattainable dream car is a LaFerrari. =D

I think it has to do with being affordable and within reach of most Americans. Also, most of us knew or know someone who had one and have fond memories of the car. For being such a common car, I get compliments just about every time I drive the car, you would think no one's seen a Mustang before by the way they act.

Uh, the Corvette has more than a decade on the Mustang. Missed one year, but that hardly seems important.

Still the Mustangs production is uninterrupted. Ford hasn't skipped one year of making Mustang. Corvette has missed one year and from what I've read about the 83 vette it a very good thing.

Continuous production is the operative phrase. The Corvette ran continually for 49 years from 1953 - 1982. The Mustang is in it's 55th unbroken year counting the 2019 models.

Once Corvette broke the cycle in 1983, the clock stopped.

Continuous production doesn’t mean anything to anyone, so it’s kind of an odd thing to add so the Mustang could “win”.

Why are you arguing this point? I simply pointed out an undeniable truth that adds credence to the growing Mustang lore which ties into the subject of this thread. Whether it's unimportant is simply your opinion, but that's not fact.

Apparently
It matters to some people or you wouldn't be arguing with 3 different people about.
