Making Mustang Owners Jealous

Started up the ZEE today just to hear that wonderful exhaust note, and the neighbor across the street came buy to check it out.

Now this guy LOVES Mustangs. He has a GT, and just the other day bought a GT500. He had never heard of the ZL1, but was in with it.

I took him for a ride, and he could NOT stop . He said it was WAY faster than the GT500!! He LOVED EVERYTHING about the ZEE!

The ZL1 is changing people............

I want real world times not what the magazines supposidly get. (I feel they are inaccurate and 12's is a little slow and should run better) I am like a little kid getting excited right before opening christmas presents I just wanna see some times lol.

Probably referring to Cars and Coffee Denver. Saturday morning car show. If so then I might have to go check it out too.

Come on. The 2 cars are 2/10 a second different 0-60. There is no way you could feel the difference.

Having owned a 650 rwhp C5 I rather drive my 12 gt500 any day. I am a lover of all muscle cars do do not think I am bashing Chevy.

Just saying....

Oh and for the record, we Mustang guys aren't jealous. We just love great cars. For too long the Gen5 Camaro was all pants and no trousers. We are as thrilled to see a real hipo Camaro as you guys. After all, if the Boss helped push the ZL1 even a little bit and resulted in the new GT500 can you imagine what the ZL1 is doing for the '15 Mustang? Gotta love the Pony car war, just wish Mopar had a real player. Love the Challenger's look's and all but it needs to match the weight of a Mustang or the technology of the ZL1.

Well the reason I bought a 2012 GT500 last week is because for $800 I can get a tune and a pulley change and have the same horsepower. I also think the new open grill is fugly. Also dealers are charging premium for them.

The 13 GT500 is not going to be mod friendly since they removed the piston sleeves in the engine. You will see 11/12's with mods spanking the new 13's wait and see......

The only real advantage I can see is the 200mph.... But me for one have no desire to travel at 200 mph unless in a plane. :0)

FYI... "C5" is a 1997 to 2004 Corvette. C1, C2, C3, C4, C5, C6... Up until now, becuase most of the "5th gen" owners seem to want to disassociate themselves with the "other gens"... the Camaro was ALWAYS referred to as "gen"... 1st gen, 2nd gen, 3rd gen, 4th gen.... Lets keep it that way. Really avoids confussion.

OK... your point? You can be a wise a$$ about it all want. Its confussing. I read your post and IMMEDIATLY thought you had a 650 HP C5 Corvette. Sorry. Maybe I am the idiot becuase I now realize no one on a Camaro board would ever have owned a Corvette.

Enjoy your 500GT dude.

The title of this thread should have been "Making Mustang owners jealous since 1967".

You were the wise ass first... Let me ask if I had not mentioned anything ford related would you have called me out? I didn't think so.

As I said, I love Chevy, Ford and Dodge. I have owned a Vette, Camaro and a GT500 in the last 2 years.... I loved one just as much as the other.
