    Just a thought

    I sure do love the sound of the GT and those Shelby's and Roush just sound down right Bad A$$. I can only image being a Teenager or in my "Early" 20's and having a car that sounded like the GT, Shelby or Roush

    With a six speed or whatever they come with now a days, just going through the gears would be pure enjoyment. Hell old Rare with her Flow Master 40's gets my blood pressure up, even if Abby is a bit faster (Abby is ok a WOT)

    Just my thoughts, Ford or not those Mustang GT's sure do make me look as they go through the gears

    Well said ARKvette02.

    Bud, I'd admit that those GTs and the Roush sound pretty good. But those kids are spoiled brats. None of those kids have had to work for one red cent....sorry I'll get off the soapbox.

    Default Adding my 2 cents...

    Here-in lies my situation...Son # 1 wishes he had a muscle car, Son # 2 has a C6 ('07 vintage), Son #3 has an '02 Mustang GT. Dad here, has a Y2K C5. Son #1 just dreams, Son #2 brags he can blow me off, Son # 3 (and my youngest, at that), never challenges me (knows better!).

    However, Son #3 will soon retire his GT and will be replacing it with a snake known as a Viper. Son# 2 doesn't know it yet...! Dad smiles !!!

Even this morning I was driving my daily driver (Toyota) and I saw a yellow C4 going down the road and sure enough, there was a Mustang trying to challenge him. The only other car that tried to take me on was one Porsche....all the rest were Mustangs. I have a very clean driving record and desire to keep it that way, plus I'm at an age that I'm over all that. I just wave the Mustangs on, but it is annoying! Have any of you guys noticed this behavior from Mustang drivers too?
    It's the same with the rice burners with the fart cans on the back. I don't even give them the time of day. I had a 240sx with a can right on my butt in 3 lane congestion. I was waiting for him to be a passenger. Boy that really me off. If you ignore them they will go away.

    That is one sick ride. I don't thing anyone driving a car like that would act stupid on the road.
    Having said that I think most people that are driving serious performance cars don't act irresponsible when sharing a road with others. It's mostly, but not exclusively, young drivers who are attempting to earn their place or bragging wright. Truthfully we all have been there. I also think lots of the older Vette drivers tend to over react when they see a sporty car drive along and feel as they are challenged, it may be that the mustang driver is admiring your car and wont's to take a better look at it. I got many of thumbs up from other drivers after what appeared to be a challenge or so what I thought, they were just looking at the car. I gave many thumbs up to so called ricers and mustangs, to be honest I got more waves from them than I get from Corvette drivers. Patric started a thread while back called "Be Cool: common pitfalls for the C5 owner, and how to avoid them" that thread should be required reading when buying new Corvette.

    I have owned 5 corvettes and 2 supercharged mustangs. My mustangs had 400 horse and the other one 1200 horse. When I would go to the corvette shows all over the country, bloomington 3 times, williamsburg ncrs meet and ncrs meets everywhere, the crowds were older and much more established family oriented people. the mustang shows were loaded with young boppers, hip hop jive turkeys just very young inmature crowd. You could not compare the two types of crowds each make of car would attract. with mustang guys it's all about racing,,drag racing and they do and can go very fast but they just have no class. my fox mustang would run high 8's and over 150 mph and it would rip your heart out. after a while, i stopped racing and just wanted a great all a round car and nothing but nothing beats a corvette. I love the people associated with corvettes and the car themselves are far superior to even the most exotic stang. Yeah my stang could rip apart almost any vette around in the quarter but the vette would just have to show up and it won in class and handling hands down.. looks too. edram454

    The one thing I've discoverd during my 46 years of street driving and many passes down the strip and some autocrossing...there will always be a car faster and more manueverable than your car.

    The maturity of the Mustang enthusiast, I believe, is on the low end, mentally and chronologicaly. Corvette owners, are typically more mature chronologically and mentally. However, those Mustang enthusiasts are passionate, and you can't take that away from them. Same thing applies to those old codgers driving Lincoln Town Cars. The average age of an owner is 68. When I bought one, my youngest son told me I jumped 15 years in age. Funny kid. I needed a big car. That fit the need. Sooooo--we have to put up with the "yuts" as Vinny would say approaching us at traffic lights and on the highway. Some of those high end Mustangs will beat out a top end Corvette. And, that will be bragging rights for the Stang owner. Such is life. But it doesn't happen often.

    I have to agree that overall, the Corvette has the looks, sex appeal, straight line and handling performance at a fair price. Its a thrill every time I'm behind the wheel. Why? Because Corvette's are just plain cool!

    Reaction time.......Yada Yada Yada...sick of hearing the drag racers talking about how tough is "really is"
    ...I have more respect for the "drifter crowd" who turn and balance a car...more "real world" performance driving....

    Corvettes are about HANDLING...Mustangs arent....just look at rational for using the solid rear axle on the new mustangs....they dont CARE if their tires are moving at different speeds in a turn since they for the most part dont LIKE to turn.

    Of course, I WOULD still buy a Mustang...LOVE the new ones!

    Default Not Just Mustangs...

    Two days ago I gave the thumbs up to a new Challenger when the car pulled alongside of me. The car looked terrific. However, I could not see the driver because of the excessively dark window tint on all the windows, so I couldn't tell if it was male or female or how many people were in the car.

    When the Challenger just edged past me the passenger window zipped down and I could see for a moment a 20 something male passenger. For the next 600 feet, the driver revved his engine, punched it several times, egging me on or at least pounding his chest over his car. The funny thing about this display of testosterone was that it was done in bumper to bumper traffic.

    Beautiful muscle car though.

    It's always nice to try blow the doors off a Mustang. But trying living with me and going to the local shows. The Wife has 01 GT with little improvements and tries to beat me out of the driveway. The is true close road racing.
