TCC’s Bottom Line
After what felt like an eternity of waiting, the 2010 Chevy Camaro is here—and it's good. Let the burnouts begin! The Ford Mustang finally has another domestic competitor. The 2009 Ford Mustang is a sport coupe that won’t appeal to everyone, but some will appreciate its retro style and power-over-poise attitude.
