still, both cars are pretty nice and fun to drive
I find that crazy. To me the Z has a much more muscular stance, but I will admit the stang is beyond strong. To me the Z is a bodybuilder where as the mustang is a power lifter if that makes any sense.

Both cars are really nice. Different spectrums though. The 370 is more of a "nimble" car. It handles better than the mustang and brakes a little better as well. It has a "nicer interior" (depends on who's looking at it I guess) and supposedly feels more "sporty"

I say this all in quotes because its all how you see things yourself. I personally, as stated here a couple times, think the Z-Car is too much of a chick car now-a-days. I had a choice before I bought my Mustang and I simply didn't even consider the 350/370z. I used to own an Acura NSX with the C30B and the 5-spd and loved it...so I'm not "afraid" of imports as some of those people will suggest about us Mustang guys.

I guess Ill just have to go in and see what Ford can offer me. My biggest worry is that there will be mustangs all over the place like the new camaro where I live. I see the occasional 350z where I live, but there are hardly any z period let alone 370s. I also like the exclusivity, but i guess that could come with customizing a stang if i get one.

Because the 5.0 will walk a 370z with room for two extra passengers.

and honestly...i would choose the 370 for that fact cuz the only way you're gonna know the 2011 from the 2010 is cuz of the 5.0 badge...but granted that badge carries some swag with it.

Build and price your Mustang <--- Follow that link and you can check out all the options and pricing while building a new Mustang. There are tons of options to choose from and $36K will get you a lot of toys. SYNC comes standard with GT Premium package the only other must have option as far as I'm concerned is the 3.73:1 rear gear for $395.
