You're still tall AF...

I just measured and I'm 11" away from the steering wheel. So it's not bad as I thought :) I thought it was worse than that since I look super short from the outside. In general too of course.

My wife looks comically small driving the Charger, but normal in the Mustang. If you want to feel small, take a test drive in one of the Dodge land boats.

Im torn between the 2020 Mustang GT and the 2020 Camaro SS both in A10 variants. And both seem to be very close in many aspects. I plan on asking this question on a camaro forum, but the other way around. But Im curious about those that shopped both seriously and chose the Mustang in the end. Lets not use the "visibility" argument though. I've driven both extensively and that isnt a problem in the camaro, at least not for me. What else prevented you from getting the camaro? Was it price, availability or was it options?? Lets have a real conversation without a flame war starting. Thanks.
My perception of this rivalry is that Mustang got more famous/iconic with Camaro being in the shadow but often excelling in many areas.

Think of cognac vs brandy.

I admit modern Camaro is better sports platform.

Design wise Mustang is just better for me. More classic references to the legacy. It is also more practical, I like its high revving engine more.

If I was younger I might preffer a Camaro.

If I had to rank modern 4 seats muscle platforms it would be:
Mustang
Camaro
Challenger
Charger

Last two cars do appeal to me externally, but once I'm inside I just loose the feel of where I'm in.

For me, it was all about history. Both of my parents had Foxes back in the day and the 5.0 Capri we had is what ignited my automotive obsession. While the Camaro is a great car, to me, it just doesn't provide that same "feeling" if you get my drift. I get my balls busted all the time by friends who own GM's ... but I don't care, lol.

Better looking convertible with a useable trunk for my musical instruments. I have always liked Mustangs more than Camaros (with a few exceptions, Z28.

From time to time I worry about the air bag deploying too if I ever get into an accident. Like will it just deploy and knock the shh out of me because I'm so close?
unfortunately yes. The explosion assumes a certain amount of "free air" during inflation. Some longer bolts and some standoffs to move the pedal off the floor might be a good idea. It may be possible to also retrofit the F150's adjustable brake/gas assembly to the Mustang. You won't have the convenience of the push-button to push it back and forth but once it's set for you, no need to touch it again.

Probably posted on the Dodge sights also. I’ve never been concerned about what or why other people buy certain things. They earn their money. They spend it on what they want. GM line workers need to eat the same as Ford line workers.
Well, if yall notice, people on THIS thread asked him to post the same thing on the camaro side, so he did.

No I didnt. I had a 2017 Challenger Scat for two years. Its been gone for about a year. And I said to myself I wouldn't get another Challenger unless it was an A8 Hellcat. And currently the new ones are out of my budget. At $65k+ I'd rather have a ZL1 anyway for that money. So a challenger/charger is out of the running. I did enjoy my scat, but that was more suited for daily duty and Im searching for a purely fun car weekends only.

I didn’t ask shit. I know the answer already! Who gives a f#$k why C6 didn’t buy a Mustang? And if you can’t figure out the answer. They liked the Camaro better.:facepalm:
