Default wtf is fords problem. this angers me

Ilove mustangs and everythingbut fordtheir starting to **** me off.I feel like ford is so far behind chevy i mean think about it 99-04 gt 260hp 05+ gt 300hp 03-04 cobra 390hp with blower whats it without the blower. The new gt500 has a blower which gives you 500hp. The new vettes dont and if they did it would be pushing over 600hp. The 95 camaro would kill the 95 gt the 2002 ls1 maro will beat the new gt th 01 cobra and the 04 gt. And they stopped making them almost 5 years ago if they were still in production bet you they would be pushing over 400 hp. And ford down graded from a 5.0 to a 4.6 and went with 5.4 with the gt500 and roush. Chevys using like 5.7, 6.0 lt i feel like fords loosing it does any else feel this way. It kind of pisses me off i mean i hear the new camaro will have 6.0 and the new vettes if not already will have 7.0 and ford is still making a little 4.6 for some of their cars.I dont know maybe its just me.

Mustangs were not built to be the fastest cars out there. They maybe a second slower in the 1/4 then the camaro but at least they will still be running aferwards. Performance comes at a price and that is what killed the f bodys. Everyone knows that the mustang gt may have been fords flagship model but it is the v6 mustang that makes them money.

it's for when you run out of red ink in your printer, you can use a period to fill it up again. [:'(]

I second that on the longevity, anyone remember the origanal Calloway Vette? certified 200 mph from the factory, but 201 mph and the engine blew. And the Fords will always be easier to work on, Find all 8 plugs on a camaro with the naked eye.

yeah how are those Camaro's and Firebirds selling...oh thats right they aren't!!! They have great engines but the rest of the car is a POS....thats why they didn't sell. With the Mustang you get a much better car at a lower price that can be made fast. Maybe GM will make a better quality product this time around and they will stick around, i personally hope so because i would buy i new Camaro with a 6.0 LSx making 400-500hp NA but only if the rest of the car is as nice as the engine.

The Mustang has had no direct competition for the past 5 years. That's why we've got puny engines (compared to what modern technology allows). However, you can hardly call an 05+ or even a stock New Edge slow. Wait until the Challenger and the new Camaro are out, that will be the only way we get 5.4L GT's.

this girl I know that is one of my good friends has a 96 or 97 Camaro 'vert. She brags and brags about how great her car is, so i went for a ride with her in it. Every little thing in it rattles, the seats are uncomfortable as hell, it's hard to see over the dash/hood (i'm 6'1 and had problems). I took her for a ride in my car and she was thoroughly impressed. We ran em and I took her (she's not the best driver, hah). Thats one chevy owner who respects fords now.

My first stick car was a 95 camaro when I was 15.. (6 speed) I learned how to drive on that car.. black Z28 ragtop man chicks loved that car.... but the stang looks to much better!!! The Maro got with it though thats for sure!! The only thing I really didnt like about the car is the fact the dash is so freaking big and you cant see anything after the gauge cluster.. and I am 6'2..

How many years has the mustang been out???? Even with that short year break in with the Probe..... The mustang pretty much has been in Fords History for just about Half a Century..... Very little cars out there can claim that long of a run.... Look at Camaro, Trans Ams, The Challenger, the Charger..... They take breaks and bring them back out a few years later to boost the sales and anticipation factor..... Ford doesn't need to do that with the Mustang.....

The Mustang unless your talking about the Saleens, Mach 1s, Cobras, etc.... Has always been the cheap mans muscle car. Afforadable and with great looks. With the money you can make that Mustang FLY!!!! You can't kill this legend. If Ford were to ever get rid of the mustang....... All the F-150s, 250s, 350s, Focuses.... I don't care, they wont be able to recover from a loss like that. The Mustang is here to stay all the way up to the point were cars will be able to fly and we have sky highways like in the movie "Back to the Future" I can't wait to get my Jet engine by then.

GM's ride like **** ... crappy trannys... horrible safety rating ... huge blind spots... ugly (except for TA and vette)... you cant mod them visually or they look like duky....crappy gas mileage... low resale value (only the dealers get those high prices for those cars, indiviuals do not come close)

only problem with 2v GT is that its slow... other than that its great!

Lotta people missing the real point here. Ford may have made the Mustang slower, but it also made it affordable and a reason why you have one now. In 2002, MSRP on a optioned GT was around 24-26,000~. GMs Z28s and SS were pushing out the MSRP door at 31,500+. The average Joe would ratehr be a little slower and be able to afford his car payment then throw down another 7,500 bucks towards a 1 second faster car. Z28s and SS cars came standard with Monsoon 500 audio systems and ALL had leather,nice rims,and like 99% had glass T-tops, those are forced "standard" options that shoot the price way up, while Mustang GTs could be had with Windstar van rims, cloth seats and a tape deck/single CD.You could grab a low option GT stang for almost the price of a Camaro V6. If the Mustang GT had some biug 6.0 Triton kill machine under the hood you could expect the MSRP to jump over 4,000 atleast.
