I just noticed that this was already posted in the General section. My bad. I figured any comparison tests would be posted in VS.

I'd prefer to see them use the SRT-8. I bet Dodge gave them the RT because they knew if the SRT was used, it would still get an ass-kickin and would lead to poor sales. At least this way they can "say" the SRT would be on par with the Camaro.

I suspect it had more to do with price otherwise Ford could have thrown in the GT500 to steal the show.

This is the first reviewer ive seen where the Camaro didn't come in first. Plus i dont like Car and Driver.

Maybe Ford slipped them a little "persuasion" under the table

OK HERE IT GOES

First I would like to mention that ford has some good vehicles after all i own a 2007 ford fusion sel. The thing I want to point out is that they have NO other car other than the mustang to play with in the sports car world that is affordable to the general public.2nd Chevy has not even tapped into the market with the possible new stingray concept or how about if they made a 60's-70's mix of a chevlle ss. Or a retro 60's-70's Malibu. Or even better how about a 57 chevy moddernized.Or a split window roadster.These are just thoughts. But really what else does ford really have? NOTHING.:happyani m:
