Cool video but the older host sounded fruity. All the macho stuff he said sounded forced. Male banter should flow freely. I kept thinking the next comparison between the two cars was gonna be which would hold the most groceries. Cup holders Pffff!! Oh and im so glad they finally solved the mystery of why my drink spills while im trying to bang shift. Lmao!!!! Bang shift i just had to say that again.

Dude! Did you have to show us you spilling soda all over in my Camaro? What a dumb ass! Looks like the Ford needs a better tranny. That would piss me off! I love the Tremec! Both cars look and sound awesome although the ZL1 is off the charts SEXY!

I believe he's the head editor for Hot Rod magazine. I think the drink thing was done "quite" tongue n cheek.

Because of cup holders... LOL... they make good change holders too.

I for one think they are perfect. I don't go around with 44 oz cups in my car either...

LOVED the video. the guys are hillarious.
The cupholder review was pretty dead on. If I have a cup in the holder it's always in the way of my arm.

What is proven is when you are in a real time lock with the other car, whoever punches its first wins. Both cars lay down the power! Point being, PUNCH it FIRST!

So true about the cup holder. Absoluetly in the way with anything more than a 12 oz bottle.

I wouldn't allow drinks in my ZL1 Camaro if I had one though, so it becomes very academic for me.

I know there is better places to run and other drivers on this site are faster. But I'm surprised they had a 60ft of 2.3 That was my average at bandimere with half bald tires.

Agree with the cup holder thing for large cups. However, a regular coffee cup fits well and I put the 20oz bottles in the rear holder and have plenty of room.

If only every review could be this objective and fun. Better yet if politics could. Great video.

I like those videos, they once drove an old ElCamino that was only running on 7 cylinders to Reno Nevada to summit racing and did an engine swap right in the parking lot. They had a dog with them that got car sick. It snowed on them during the swap. It was on their series called Road Kill.

+1 I love Road Kill.

Actually, the whole Motor Trend youtube channel has had a lot of great content on it since it was redesigned. Road Kill and Ignition are my favourites.

That was so awesome! I'd love to drive my car like that even though it's just a 45th anniversary SS. I'd never do that to my baby.

Dang....someone else buys the cars, the gas and the tires and all they have to do is beat the crap out of them...it must be nice! That's really the way I would WANT to drive them but I'm always concerned about tire wear, breakage, tickets or even gas mileage. Great video!
