Since the mid-1960s, Ford and Chevrolet have been racing each other to build faster and better muscle cars. Ford, of course, started this power feud with its iconic Mustang, the first pony car ever made in the United States. Chevy followed with its ever-popular Camaro. In our Mustang versus Camaro quiz, we’ll see if you really know anything about the specs and stats that make these cars so fast. Do you think you can beat us to the checkered flag?

Sure, the Model A was one of Ford’s most successful cars ever. But its performance was, shall we say, rather lacking in testosterone. With the introduction of the 1965 Mustang, Ford threw down the gauntlet in the muscle car wars. Chevy followed with its 1966 Camaro, a vehicle that, well, did not exactly live up to the hype. Do you know the speeds of these famous vehicles?

From horsepower to torque ratings, muscle cars like the Mustang and Camaro rely on grippy tires and low weight to provide faster, better performance. Some variants have neck-snapping 0-60 mph times, while others might as well be Yugos. Do you know the fastest stock Mustangs and Camaros in history?

Kick the tires of our Mustang vs. Camaro quiz now! Maybe you’ll blow through the quarter-mile at a breathless pace. Or perhaps this tough muscle car quiz will leave you in the dust!
