I regret to inform you... But,

I think I may actually kind of respect camaros I was messing around with one weaving through traffic until I finally got next to it, to find out it was an SS(2002ish)... Extremely clean and shiny, he started to rev his engine. I've never felt so slow before. All I could hear above the roar of a massive LS engine was the unmistakable sound of a large s/c.. The light turned green and it was gone. I've never seen a car on the street go that fast. Easily a low 11, 10 second car... And strangely, I kind of respect them.

Well regardless of what he had the SS seems like it took off pretty hard....but you don't know what he's put into it all the time/money/etc maybe he's spent double what it would have made for a mustang to do the same thing

Yes, mine is a v6... But that ss was ridiculously fast. And I've been next a friends 550hp 04 SVT cobra... This thing would've killed it. Easily 700hp.

You're also married to a guy who works for GM if I'm not mistaken. You're kinda biased now.

Re: I regret to inform you... But,

What's wrong with having respect for a car that has been driven, modded, and loved by enthusiasts for years? They perform well, it's one reason the mustang/camaro rivalry is so fun.

I respect American muscle. Not so much love for dodge though. They build their cars too cheaply.

Well it seams the dodges fall apart the fastest and it's usually the cosmetic parts that break so your ride looks like trash.

You make it sound like a speedometer in a Dodge is important man. If you're car is constantly broken down, what really is the need for a speedometer?

Dodge's interiors are plain and boring. And really the new 392 hemi can probably float.

Along with the Challenger needing a minimum of an 18 Point U-Turn?

Lol, that means it can't turn at all... You have to keep backing out and going forward to change direction.
