    Wonder when the next auto correction will happen. Year after year sales growth is not sustainable. Yes I do see some big double digits drops but still some auto companies are gonna hit a point of needing a correction.

    Course I think some auto companies with bland boring product lines needs to really shake things up. Course then I am dumb founded by VW becoming the worlds biggest auto company even with Diesel gate.

    http://www.torquenews.com/106/ford-mustang-starts-2017-outselling-camaro-challenger-slow-january

    Why even post this?

    Its January...

    When in Hades has January ever been good to any muscle car sale, ever?

    Is this, like, shocking news or something?

     

    Oh...Mustang is outselling Camaro...THAT is the news you like to point out....

    You know...El Kabong no longer posts in here....

    The rest of us really dont care for that...the rest of us want all 3 pony cars to stick around and evolve into electricity powered muscle cars when the internal combustion engine is laid to rest in the next 20-30-40-50 years and beyond!

    I will give you this:

    Come summer, I think we will finally see the Challenger start losing sales as it really has become out dated and obsolete...the people that bought the first Challys were excited when the updates to the interior happened so they handed over their old Challys and moved into the new ones....but that charade has already happened once and it has become stale to happen again while at the same time, that interior upgrade got  conquest sales too, but...finally, this is the end of the road for the Chally...If 1 seat Demon is true and possibly marketed as a drag only car, Im afraid the time is up for the Chally....maybe the supposed 'Cuda will help...

    The Camaro...is ugly as sin...and the Transformer fanboys have gotten their Bumblee Bee fix with the last generation....this Alpha one was doomed from the get go!

    The great AWD pony car experiment, should be interesting to see if challenger taps a market nerve. Pony cars are toys and that's why their sales are tanking in the age of CUV's

    Gotta make performance SUVs now.  All wheel drive coupes and sedans may slow the Crossover take over rate, but automakers got people convinced that they need AWD and that they need a 40 cubic foot area to haul a gym bag and 2 bags of groceries.   If you have all wheel drive Camaros and Mustangs, maybe that gets buyers in the snow belt to keep buying, but it is hard to stop the crossover.

    I get the feeling it has more to do with what is going on rather the the cars themselves...

     

    I expect if things keep getting crazier out there, sales are going to dive based on fear.

    A few local dealerships are cutting staff around here already...many are afraid to put money out at the moment....

    Mustang and Challenger having their worst January in 3yrs, and Camaro having its worst month of sales since its rebirth is ( sales ) newsworthy.

    If you don't care, don't dont read, don't comment. Pretty simple.

    Well I thought it was interesting information.. Not thread worthy but interesting as it was info about ALL of them doing terrible and not trying to single out any one of them.

    Here is a Fun Fact...

    F- Series - 57,995 ( +12.5% )

    All four GM models ( Silverado, Sierra, Colorado, Canyonero ) - 57,757

     

    http://news.pickuptrucks.com/2017/02/best-selling-pickup-trucks-january-2017.html

     

     

     

    Is this a huge F-Series month or a slow GM month? Or a combination of both? Is this the first time it has happened since the mid-sizers have come out?

    Heres another fun fact. 

    The Suburban had a better January than the Expedition and Navigator combined. We don't even need to mention Tahoe sales, which continues to beat its competitors by a mile.

    2.) Obvious trolling 

    How was it trolling? He posted a link and a quote from the link was about all three. If it was a troll move wouldn't he have used the article title at least that was showing the Camaro in a negative light as opposed to the quote he chose? Also, this is a sales thread.. it was about sales..

     

     

    You guys look really stupid right now.

    No offense ccap41, but I don't need your support to make my point. He does this every month the Mustang comes out on top and then hides under a rock when they don't so so well. There are hundreds of other models to talk about but the fanboy always chooses one make and their models when they are doing well. That's his MO and I have no problem calling him out on in, escpecially after seeing his childish response to Olds. 

    If it happens that often.. ignore it..? Aren't you two supposed to be doing that anyway, yet neither of you can stay away from each other? You two are like the high school crush who isn't allowed to see her boyfriend but she's sooooo in love with him she can't stop seeing him until the parents(mods) find out and put an end to it.

    Yes, enthusiasts tend to want to talk about the enthusiast vehicles. Sports cars and 'manly' trucks.

    Except he is neither. He is a one brand fan who only talks about one brand. The only time he speaks about other brands is when he can talk $h! about him. 

     

    Btw, ignoring is a choice but that does not mean that I have to stay silent and the last time I checked, that's a two way street. 

    I said the two of you. I didn't say just you or just him.

    You two are pretty much in love with each other. You two can't resist the companionship of one another.

    Honestly, I've seen way worse fanboy posts than one that says all 3 of the D3 are down to be calling somebody on that. Had it been something like, "Mustang dominates Camaro" or "Ford eats Chevy's dinner" it would be more understandable but it literally said all three had a terrible January dating back at least a few years.

     I gave you a carrot to chew on...yet this is your response back...

    Check this out, my message to you-hoo-hoo

    If you don't care, don't dont read, don't comment. Pretty simple.

    (that was easy as 1-2-3 as well as a copy and paste response)

    3 little pony cars are not sellin' in January...Dont worry about a thing, 'cause every little thing will be alright...

    Maybe that is why for next year, the Chally gets AWD?

    Hey...I make conversation here...

    Some of us cant handle my heat..too damn bad!

    Many choose to ignore me when the heat gets too hot....they leave the kitchen...I stay and continue cooking!
