Is it true that the Camaro is considered a pony car???
I always thought it was a muscle car, but I just read somewhere that it is a pony car?

It is referred to as a "pony" car simply because of it's size. The Camaro was built to compete with the Ford Mustang. Mustangs had an optional "pony" interior. I would assume the illiteration just kind of took off from there.

I always thought that "pony car" was what they called the group of cars with a short wheel-base. Which is Camaro, Mustang, Trans Am.....
these would all be in the "pony" class when racing together.
and a MUSCLE CAR is any car with "BIG MUSCLE" under the hood.

I think calling any of the GM's a "Pony Car" is just wrong. This terminology should only be used for a Ford Mustang. Mid-size Muscle Car would be a better designation.
