Good afternoon Ladies and gentilemen,
I'll just get this out of the way first (I love Mustangs), however, the new Camarro is a nice piece that warrents a second look by anyone who is seriously concidering a pony car. I think GM did a great job on this vehicle.. I just hope the buying public pays attention this time. I didnt get to look at production numbers yet for 2008 Mustangs, but I did see how many Shelby GT500's were made (8134), and (1968) GT500KR's were built, I couldnt get totals for Mustang GT's and regular mustangs but they usually do about 130,000 a year and probably about 80,000 to 90,000 during these difficult times. The Dodge produced (6400) 426 bhp 425 lb/ft torque Challenger SRT-8's and will shoot for 30,000 to 40,000 v-6, 5.7 v-8's and SRT-8 for 2009, but I doubt they will make it...
I hope these cars all do well, when they do well it breeds competition and all breeds get improved and grow... I want to see Camarros, Mustangs and Challengers compete/out do each other.. OK... enough politics not the bad news bow-tie-boy
Your not going to want to hear this but... FORD just released official pictures and stats for the revised Shelby GT500... 540bhp 510lb/ft torque 3:55 rear gears and 6speed and just as fast as the outgoing GT500KR but with better handling (for the life of me I have no idea why theres no IRS suspension)... Check (chess!!!)
