    I have worked on plenty of the Camaro models, 2010 and newer. They have plenty of power. And nice style. Not everyone likes the same thing. If they did, we would all drive identical cars.

    Of course while I did vote for the Camaro in this age-old thread, If I had my choice of anything it would be a tie between a 69 Camaro SS with a worked 383 Stroker, and a 1969 Mach1 428SCJ.

    Shelby is a mustang I guess, but that's apples to oranges when you talk about N/a vs forced induction

    SS camaro of these choices, although I think all muscle cars should be convertibles with manual transmissions.

    That Pontiac thing doesn't appeal to me at all even if it breaks the sound barrier. Blech

    I said mustang because it's in the poll, actually it says rustang. I don't think people who own one and I don't think shelby considers it a mustang, there is no mustang badging on it I don't think.

    While the Shelby does not have the Mustang badging, it is still a Mustang. Just like the ZL1 is still a Camaro. It is just a modified version.

    I still would much rather have an original Muscle car. Dream car is '69 Charger or '70 Challenger.

    Although I wish they've have this for the Zeta platform.

    I'd go muscle when they didn't have a computer running the show. Nothing that cuts 4 cylinders out when cruising. Just raw power and bad gas mileage. That's true muscle to me.

    Seat covers, weather tech digi fit, bug deflector, plasti dip wheels, magnaflow muffler, and many more to come!.. as soon as i get money. Ill probably go broke typing this...

    I would literally kill for a 69 mach 1 with a 428. But the daddy of them all is the BOSS 429.

    Now ad this to your poll and you might see some folks that UNDERSTAND horsepower and torque speak up...:thumbsup:

    And YES, when I retire I would LOVE to rebuild one of these and pull an RV with it....just to pi$$ off young Tacoma drivers in the left lane :)
