Regal, Grand Prix, etc, though i was able to change them on my GTP with a lot of hassle LOL, also the braces under the hood had to be removed to change the battery, and even worse, the battery on my parents 96 Lumina was located behind the motor under the wiper cowl, PITA.

The Camaro is a whole new idea, not just some regugitated makeover of a tired idea.. The Ford faithful will gobble up anything that the MOCO throws at them but not this Chevy guy...
Really? Are you serious?

The car comes with upgraded road course worthy suspension and brakes, lighter than the GT, plus a forged rotating assembly..

Trade my camaro for a Ford. You must be smoking something to even ponder an idea.

I think the story goes if you dont watch what your drinking could end up with unplanned kids or a ford.


Humor folks dont take to seriously

It's probably the other way around here, everyday I see more and more new Camaro's and less and less new Mustangs...I just don't like Ford, the company. I don't care what they make. Life is seldom lived on a 1/4 mile track.

I'm sure it's all top of the line too. : /

Don't forget Ford does not have any upper echelon like we do with the ZO6,ZO8 or Z1R, so possibly the Boss and Cobra were made more as contenders for the Vette, which the Vette will kill the Cobra and make the Boss the Boss of defeat. There is no replacement for displacement.

I wouldn't trade it in, I'd consider buying one if I wanted to spend money on another performance car. But all my money is going into my current performance car! It's a respectable car but I think the ZL1 will be a better platform regardless of the cash difference

Actually, I had this talk with my wife. Our solution was to let my buy the Boss302 and when Chevy comes out with the Z/28 she will get that. So there goes me getting my 45th edition, but I will be happy with both of those cars in my garage any day.

The only thing id trade my Camaro in for is a C6 Jet Stream Blue Z06...which I almost did.

You would not catch me trading in my car for a Ford. Unless they wanted to do a straight up trade on a Kona Blue 2011 GT500.

I'm actually looking at getting a Challenger SRT8 in the near future. I love the looks of those cars. Either Plumb Crazy Purple, or Hemi Orange. Still going to keep the Camaro though!

I would rather have a camaro (looks better) over a boss 302. its a better performer on the track, but other than the seats and stripe package it looks like every other mustang out there...I think the gt500 is the only one thats separates the stang...besides you now have the zl1 coming.. JMO

Ford can't touch the Camaro in looks, imo.

Looks is subjective and lately, this is all we seem to fault the Mustang on. That's a pathetic argument IMO. Performance on the other hand is undeniable. I like them all.

You afford that on a Sergeant's salary? Damn.
