That's most of our points as well.
I could care less about the whole Mustang-Camaro thing.
I typically am a Corvette guy but I love the new retro style.

Be realistic with your comparisons and you will not have any issues on this site. However, attempting to compare the GT500 to the 1SS, while a much closer comparison in performance vice the GT, is not a comparison at all in pricing - totally different market.

The ford comparison tool is interesting. Like how many errors it has about the Camaro, lol. They really should get that price, hp, mpg updated instead of giving misinformation.

I was just trying to point out that the model has nothing to do with the Mustang/Camaro because they put them in at different price points. You can compare similar priced models to each other and make it a fair way of comparing what you get.

MotorTrend numbers for Camaro being advertised tomorrow and it's not 4.7

Try 4.5 (4.7 was GM's conservative estimate for average driver)

The F-body has been faster then the Mustang since 1993 and I don't see that changing anytime soon. At the end of the day, Ford still sells more Mustangs and didn't have to stop producing their slower car for 8 years.

I'm a pretty die hard GM guy, but I'm pretty realistic about the products they put out and at the end of they day Ford does a better job marketing and selling a "slower car". I will agree that the GT500KR is a joke though. Your literally paying 35k for a cold air kit and tune. At least the 35k sticker price increase from a Z06 to ZR1 actually gives you a net benifit.

Nah, they're just kids mostly wantin' to race anything, win or lose.

They used to pull up to my ZO6 and want a race.
Not worth the fuel was my take most of the time.

I did, however, hand out a few whoopins to the GT500 and Cobra guys a few times.

No kidding, I showed some interest in the GT500 a few months back and the dealer called a few weeks ago to sell their GT500KR for 15 under MSRP. I told him it still wasn't worth it. They can't give that dang car away.

I bet the ones you didnt race went on to tell their buddies they whooped your ass too.

are you even going to be getting yourself a camaro? because you seem to really love your car(as you should its yours) and it seems like you will never part ways with your car. so if your not why did you even come to a camaro forum, just to talk about how much you love your car cuz thats what most of your post are about. go to a mustang forum to do that.

but i will say i do think your post are funny to us camaro guys

I'm sure they did; well, at least to anyone that would actually believe them???????

No worries here, rice burners try too.

This is my main concern with being the first on the block with my 2SS - - every dang knucklhead out there is going to try to push my buttons.

I think he adds a good point of view. He doesn't seem to take things too seriously and hasn't bashed anyone

And besides....I can piss farther than him so he should stay

Last time i checked teh requirements for this site weren't YOU MUST OWN OR HAVE ORDERED A CAMARO
doesn't matter if he is or isn't i REEEEAAALLY want a Camaro but idk if i can get one until maybe next year, does that mean i shouldn't be here ?
He wants to be here maybe bcuz he likes the Camaro but likes his car more
I've loved Camaro since i was a kid (thnx to my dad) but he also taught me to respect other people's cars and appreciate all cars in general

and before anyone says it, i drive a mustang but Ive always been a Bowtie guy, but i bought a mustang last year bcuz my car crapped out and the mustang was SOOOO cheap (private/motivated seller)

Hey fd, just curious if you have dyno'd your car at all. Got any stock baseline and after mod results? What do those stock GT's usually put down to the wheels? 260ish?
