On The Booth Babe’s last article, TTAC commentator, LALoser, stated that he originally thought that I was the Booth Babe! He based this theory “because of the just below the surface Anti-Americanism.” So to address this accusation, I decided to blog the following…
Consumer Reports pitted the Ford Mustang against the Chevrolet Camaro to find out which of the poster children for American muscle cars is the best. In the comparison, Consumer Reports puts the Ford Mustang V6 Premium against the Chevrolet Camaro 2LT. The first round was price. The Ford Mustang costs $28,660 whereas the Chevrolet Camaro costs $28,195. 1-0 to the Oshawa built bad-boy. Then it all went downhill for the Camaro. Consumer Reports said that the Ford’s V6 engine was more refined than the Camaro’s, had stronger acceleration and better fuel economy. Oh dear. But that wasn’t to say that the Camaro didn’t have good acceleration, because it did, but the Camaro weighs 300 pounds more than the Mustang.
4-1 to the Mustang.
Result? Mustang won. Says Consumer Reports: “Only the Ford is recommended. The Mustang has an excellent reliability record with the old V6; we expect this one to be similar. The Camaro is too new for us to have reliability data. “
David Champion, senior director of Consumer Reports’ test center said that “the Mustang is the more agile and enjoyable car to drive of the two,”. But what say you, B&B? Do you agree? Or do you think that the Camaro kick’s arse more than the Mustang?
