1985 Pony Car Comparison Chevrolet Camaro vs Pontiac Firebird vs Ford Mustang

Pony cars, coined in the 60’s with the introduction of the original Ford Mustang and its equestrian namesake, describing an affordable, compact, highly styled car with a sporty or performance-oriented image. Retaliated by GM’s Chevrolet Camaro in 1967, and later with Pontiac’s 1969 Firebird. The group had other spokesman from other manufacturers like Dodge, Plymouth and AMC, but the Ford vs GM battle survived much longer than the others one, maybe two iterations. Regardless of engine size, output, or how their respective performance figures are translated from rubber to pavement, lloyalty, and or Fanboyism’, is what the typical buyer of these equine will utilize as their actual, primary explanation for their acquisition! Either way, it’s always been a fun encounter.

      Awesome vid! I have an 86 Trans Am with the same paint job as the one in the video.(minus the bird on the hood) Only mine has the TPI 5.0 that the camaro has in this video. I think if the Trans Am in this video had the same drivetrain as mine, the Trans Am would have done way better. Either way with this video we all win. More please.

    I’m amazed how far technology has come. I can go out and order a Ford Focus ST with a 250HP 2.0L 4 cylinder that with a little bit of tuning would make well over 300BHP and still get great MPG. I LOVE technology!

    Would have been interesting if the Camaro had a 5 speed.
    Would have iced the mustang ( the lower case ‘m’ is deliberate)

    And the mustang looks like the shipping carton for the Camaro & Firebird. Angular, tall, frumpy & just plain.

    And which one is best in the real world -where one has corners. The Camaro- the fuel injection is going to give you so much more driveabiliyt than a carby.
