My wish: Ford would post their GT500 or Boss 302 videos of their "Ring" times. I'm betting they exist. That would really be amusing in a side by side comparison.
Amusing is probably a good word to use. Around the Milford road course, the Boss 302 Laguna Seca is the fastest Mustang Ford has produced...Camaro starts faster with the 1LE/SS...gets faster with the ZL1....and finishes even faster than that in the Z/28...
Team Camaro, and Al Oppenheiser have taken to track performance engineering with a vengeance. Look at the Z/28...a car that nobody honestly thought could
exist in modern car-making...a production car bred to do one thing alone: race.
And now...they've got all that experience under their belts moving into the 6th generation car. I would be very interested to see what Ford tries to do to usurp sales......or if they even try to fight at the track. They could try to lean on looks and value and give up the track/performance fight....
Doubt it though...this rivalry has never seen much "giving up".
