    Went to a car show a while back, where my buddy and his little Mustang club were showing their cars. A vendor happened to be selling tin signs a few yards away. After $10 and a bunch of crazy looks from his car club (who didnt know me) this is what I came up with:

    Well Ford is the undisputed winner of the pony car wars. GM gave up and went home crying. I would rather have a Mustang Cobra tham a Lo6 vette
    At least i would get some respect.

    i dunno that 7 liter is bad a$$. the new shelby is pretty bad too went 10s w/ slicks, tune, exhuast ,and a pulley. ford just cant make that much power w/o a supercharger. im not bias though everyone has the pros and cons. i wanna see the new challanger in action

    Yeah the new Challenger looks bad ass.

    This particular Cobra is pretty nice. Kinda overdone on the body kit and everything but he wants to go back to stock on it. Bad thing is he gave away all the stock components. Last dyno run had him at 495hp, 420ish lb/ft at the wheels (not sure on the torque). Its not a slug.

    The Z06 is a far superior vehicle. The Stang can't even dream of carving corners the way the Vette can. The Vette is just plain better bang for the buck.

    Lo6? WTF is that? A ZO6 will kick all the ass a Mustang can bring. Shelby or not....btw why do they always have to have power adders....can't the engine make it on its own?

    Nothing wrong with superchargers....Get a smaller pulley, to bump up the boost and you have quite a bit of power for not much money. I hate the sound of superchargers, but the sound of a big turbo is sexy.

    point is: the 7.0l LS-7 makes the power normally aspirated, the mustang needs power adders to get it.

    there is only one Cobra... and it looks like this:

    calling any Stang with the same name is a bigger automotive injustice than calling those POS 1990's non-fullsize, tall minivans from chebbie "Blazer".
