Reality does not agree with you.

No outright winner was declared, though reading between the lines, the Camaro seemed the favorite. Car and Driver compared the Trans-Am-racing homologation versions of each and gave the nod to the Camaro Z/28, which outperformed the Tunnel-Port Mustang in acceleration (13.8 versus 14.0 in the quarter) and braking (1.02 g versus 0.86 g). Road & Track chose a 289-powered Mustang over its 327-cube Camaro competitor, judging the soft-riding Camaro to be "frankly, a disappointment."

Literally the top of google for 'vintage mustang vs camaro' or something like that.

Do you desire to see more? Is it more important that the more mainstream ones performed better? Or that the high performance ones did? Can we talk about Shelby?

Your bias shows.

I would say it's more important to me which high performance ones performed better, mainly because we're talking about muscle cars. And yea we could talk about Shelby if we can talk about yenko or Baldwin motion too
Of course my bias always shows lol I just get a kick out of praising gm on a ford forum

Eh, I guess we all gotta get our kicks somewhere. I don't go on Harley forums and praise Honda's, but that is just me...

Interesting. It's all mustangs, camaros, and chargers around here. There's maybe 4 people that own them in the town in which I live. I know for a fact that at least 2 of them are a v6.

It's the internet after all, I don't take any of this serious. I also don't care what people like, or what they do with their time and money. But if you ask, I will be honest.

Hard to tell in that picture but possible. Could also be a Tesla Roadster. Same body, don't know if the Roadster came in orange or not.

what stood out to me is the side scoop towards the rear wheel in the picture he posted. Tesla roadsters don't have any side scoops like that
