yea the two vehicles are aimed towards different groups and are not in direct competition with one another. The vette is an actual sports car and the Mustang is not... etc etc. I have noticed that the interior on the Z06 is lacking compared to the 2010 mustangs in quality.

when it comes to someone deciding on which of the two to go with money is usually the primary factor, then year/mileage, then comfort. The mustang is more versatile ~ but I could care less about that... i hate when someone wants to ride in my back seat so a vette would solve that

I agree, I also have noticed the new 2010 and 2011 mustangs have jaw dropping interiors even compared to vettes. You should see the 2010 saleen 281 interiors. I have it as my screensaver.

Oh yeah bro that's exactly what I have as a screensaver. I also like the exterior body kit, hope I can get it when I upgrade to the new body style. Oh bad news by the way, that blizzard in NE has my nice Colorado red stang gt captive at the moment and I am relentless to go outside and shovel approx 12 inches of snow and counting.

Oh and just let me also add that there are now listings of 2011 GT 5.0s on dragtimes.com for 30,000 or less no joke.

Oh dude, I know how you feel! I live in MI. We got another 2" yesterday on top of the 10" we already had. It's been a light year thus far for snow, but never the less my cobra in in hibernation till April or May. Best part of that is upgrades!!!!!!

Lucky you, now I see why it is important to have a home with a garage for your special toy. I almost got an apartment with a garage for my toy and my credit wasn't good enough. This is one advantage those sti and evo owners have over us is with snow, but I love my American V8. Oh I also do like the hot rod cams the dealership installed with a BAMA 93 octane tune, FFRP manifold and other bolt ons. Surprisingly even with 3.55 rear end driveability is still good in bumper to bumper traffic with 19 mpg observed yesterday. The sound midrange is somewhat exotic as well, made me like my car even more.

I need to hear that sound! Let me know if you post on You Tube or whatever. Does it sound like European almost?

That's exactly it and it even has me thinking I should trade my 07 in for a 2010gt with the same engine instead of the 5.0 and then supercharge it and add these FFRP hot rod cams and intake manifold since I don't need more than 500 crank hp. Plus the 2010gt I am looking at only weighs around 3400 pounds, I couldn't believe it, this is an advantage for handling over the 5.0. Will look forward to posting the sound as soon as I get it up. Looking for good recording equipment that really captures the essence of the sound. I haven't even done the headers yet. Funny how people never mentioned that mid range sound before. I think it has something to do with my FFRP intake manifold though, makes it kinda sound like a sound chamber or something. The Blow By Racing stg 1 cams never sounded anything like this period.
