To me...The Boss 302 is still a Mustang, just like the SS 1LE is still a Camaro. Doesn't really matter though, the more expensive Boss 302 LS still couldn't beat the 1LE, as the VIR times shows.
Embarrassing for Ford!!!
There's only "1" reason that they said that, they (we) knew they would lose. It's funny that they let them get away with that. Didn't they also jack the price of the 1LE way up?
