they weren't very nice to our car.

In fact, at one point, he called the interior "American."

Yeah seriously. They had the wrong guy test drive the car, the taller guy at the end loves Mustangs and would have said nicer things about it.

And come on, when he says how it's for a 4.6L but only 300 HP because it's American made, well **** why do you think it's 25 grand? If it was higher, the price gets higher and it no longer becomes a car for everyone to purchase, just another Cobra. And the whole point of muscle cars is you'd get a car, put parts and mods into it, and beef up the muscle. If the car was already at top performance, what's the point of having any fun with your car to put some of your soul into it?

what pissed me off is how he kept bashing the solid rear axle saying it was stone age and **** like that. Doesn't he understand that the whole point of the muscle car was drag racing and style. That is what the Stang is all about. its not a ****in luxury car. They shouldnt have even had those stupid bastards test it.

Well they're right.

In America, more ppl wanna go fast in a straight line than want to go quickly around turns.

At least that is what drag vs. autocross is showing us.

Oh, another thing, he said it was like a pony or something. Umm... ponycar, pony...

Dude, over here the Cobra is an import, that means it cost more than yours 31K. And class and price range wise the European cars starts at 450-500hp.

Ok, which ones. I don't know much about european cars. So which ones come from a dealer with 450+ hp for 31K (and remember they will cost more to import here that is why I am comparing base price in the country of origin)

Over in Europe the Mustang is an IMPORT, that means it will cost more than it will in the US. Just like European cars will cost more in the US than it will in Europe.
Depending on what country you live in, the '03 Cobra cost arouns $100K over here. So class / price range is totally different over here, and it will be underpowered (stock).


I don't want to start anything, but I just want to tell you how it is over here.
