    Of Course, but not by Cushman. Cushman has been sold many times over.

    Racing is like sex. Drag racing is over fast like Shelby guys having sex, were road racing, that takes longer. My 87 year old mother in law can drive in a straight line.

    You guys keep telling me "Yes sir can I have another"

    But since you brought up straight lines

    I know of two worked over Supercharged Mustangs (a Saleen and a Roush) that got an ass whippin' by a ZL1. Both had more cams, boost and valves than me.:pop: Hold on, I need to get another Coke for the rest of my popcorn.

    No Grandpa here. I was afraid if I had any kids they would turn out to be Ford guys.

    Regardless of the time I was a bit surprised to see how well it handles in the vid. I thought it would have been a lot more wiggly.

    Are you really that high Terry? The Fed bought their debt in exchange for stock. The taxpayers are going to probably take a 10 billion dollar hit. Get your facts straight before you spout off.

    how old are you? with these arguments that makes you look really pathetic...

    second depending on the year i fully expect a zl1 to beat a saleen and roush... you give plenty of reason why it shouldn't... here are two that flip it a little: Displacement and horsepower (depending on year and mods). Which the second typically trumps all at the strip (depending on traction of course).

    I have a few friends with the camaros and they always bring up the cam statements while making fun of ford for having a SRA... the question is when did the mustang get more then one cam and when did the camaro get an IRS? which car company is behind the times? I mean imagine if GM was smart enough to bring out a OHC system (valves typically go hand in hand with cams)... who knows if it could actually beat a trinity then :shrug:

    Glad someone posted those links as I was just about to.

    Terry, everyone here realizes the GT500 uses old suspension technology but they stuck with the muscle car formula and look how well it has worked for them. It's the underdog in every comparison regardless of the 662hp, but it still hangs in there and sometimes whoops up on the competition. And now it looks like they just made GM look like fools with their outlandish claims for the ZL1 which never came to fruition. The track times was one of the last things that car had to hang onto but now we know the GT500 is right there with and most likely a little faster depending on the track. Why do you think they even pushed the Z28 to market so quick? So they could make up and take the attention off the performance failure that is the ZL1. The car can perform and is great but Chevy literally killed that cars chances by overhyping it. They doomed that car from the beginning. They need to keep their mouths shut about their cars and let them speak for themselves which is what just about every other automaker does.

    What do you mean? ;-) They sat back and watched the Boss 302 for two years just like they do every other model! The GT500 has been around since 2007 and they FINALLY decided to try and compete sadly it was a day late and a dollar short...

    If Nissan was caught with exaggerated Ring times, it doesn't surprise me that Chevy would.

    Ring times are a bench racers dream anyways. I blame the Gran Turismo generation for putting so much stock into them.

    you're delusional...


    full bolt on 5.0's are turning in better straight line performance than the ZL1.

    FI 5.0's are laying waste to even the most highly built ZL1's that the world has ever seen.

    the ZL1 is a disappointment and your arguments are weak!



    the GT500's are, in every way, a better car.

    The z28 has some next-level street tires. I'm quite confident those tires on the GT500 would make the Ford considerably more dominant. But it doesn't have those tires. And that is why the Z28 is the real winner IMO. That thing is straight up impressive for what it is (and driving through the rain). There really is no loser though - they all looked pretty good out there.
