That was a great read.

I don't get into "Car Wars" (I hate Fords in general, not just Mustangs), but that was a nice read.

The Camaro wins overall. Many more like this will follow!

Read this, then saw the "FURD QUALITY IZ GUD" thing on CBS Early Show and just..fell off my couch laughing.

Yeah..and the whole "I can fit a half dollar into those trunk gaps" just.. Well, I guess it makes the "lolblandplastic" Camaro and "oosquishyvinylandpanelgaps" Mustang equals.

Surprised about the Camaro tranny comment

I was surprised about the negative comment about the manual tranny. Might make some people switch to an auto.

could you translate that to english all i read was couch and camaro.

if your talking about plastic interiors you have that too.
if your talking about panel gaps you have that too.

thats what i got from it.. but if you can clarify that would be great.

What i dont get, why is it alwasy the R/T... is it because the 09 SRT isnt out yet? or because the SRT is priced out of competition?

thecamaroguy 03-23-2009 08:32 AM

Did they mess up on the comparisons on the last page...

I thought the Challenger was the heaviest of the three...

Krobar 03-23-2009 08:44 AM

I think they left out the SRT8 because it is embarassing that it costs 44k and the RT is about as fast.

SRT8 is $15,000 more than either the Camaro or the Mustang GT. You could just about get a Camaro and a Cobalt for the price of an SRT8.

You know, I was SURE they were going to figure out a way to give it to the Mustang until the end.

:word: Dodge should give the R/T the same suspension and brakes as the SRT8. Maybe then this would be more of a fair fight.

I dont think he was talking about plastic interiors or panel gaps specifically, he was making note of how the testers made comments about the mustang's poor build quality (could've been a one in a million mistake), but nonetheless not too positive response regarding those details for the Ford
