They were similar back in the day as well. But similar is as far as it goes, and thats not saying much, alot of cars are similar.

Question



Not to change the subject or anything, but am I the only one here who noticed the "August 2006" date stamp on the article that started this thread?

I'm as psyched about the Camaro's resurrection as anyone, but I am curious why this (and only this) particular media outlet would pick up on the impending "announcement".....

A muscle car is a muscle car - that means the Rustangk too, we must show it what little respect it deserves...it has come a long way in design from 2000, you know, a little credit, maybe?

I just have a special place in my heart for all american cars. Ford's, Dodge's, and Chevy's alike...

i agree 100% dragon, as long as it has over 300hp, 8 pistons, and rear drive and TWO doors, i am a happy guy . I personally LOVE the 2005 up stang it is WORTHY of the name. i like the retro styling, it was if the designers in 1967 said "design the look of the car 40 years from now, go."

FWIW,

The RS was a base model (230 and 250ci I6)

The SS was the performance model (327, 350, and 396)

The Z28 was the Trans/Am race inspired version. (It had a 302 and a good suspension) It was built to get it in the T/A race. It was the middle.

and then there were the combinations
RS/Z28 was an RS with a Z28 engine and suspension
RS/SS was an RS with a 327
there was no SS/Z28 because the SS engine was too powerful for the Z28 suspension. So, adding Z28 components to a SS was a downgrade, adding SS components to a Z28 defeated the purpose of a Z28.

All are great cars, I've owned at least one of each.

I am looking forward to owning one of these new ones.
