I want a Mustang, or one of those new Chevy Camaros.

I've always liked 'stangs, and the original Capri.

I'd like my Ranchero to be nice and fixed. Also repainted white with black stripes.

Hah, you should have seen my Ranchero when I first got it.

Yeah, I guess sitting in one place in Washington for (time measurement in multiple years) will do that to a car.

I don't like most mustangs, unless it is a Cobra, Roush, or Shelby. Otherwise they are generally over rated. GT's can't touch an SS, stock for stock. GM muscle ftw.

@Sentinal: I think I'm winning the clean department so far :9 And I haven't bought a clay bar yet. X)

I shouldn't even be touching this, but:

Mustang GT 5.0l: 420 hp, 390 lb·ft

Camaro SS 6.2l: 426 hp, 420 lb·ft

Alright, you win this round, however in comparison to size, the GT is more powerful. Also, that's using the LS3, as I recall the L99 is used when the Camaro is equipped with an automatic, which is a weaker engine, while the Mustang retains the same 5.0 with an automatic. The Mustang also has a higher redline, probably due to the DOHC design as opposed to SOHC in the Camaro engines. I won't disagree that, in some cases, the Mustang is overrated though.

I think I'm doing pretty well for having a 37 year old car.

What's that do?

@sentinal: Ooh, you got a flat tire there buddy.

@Bio: I just like the whole muscle car design, I don't really care what it is.

Oh there's a lot more than one. Like I said, that's a picture of when we first pulled/pushed it off the trailer, not that the tire situation has changed, but it's far cleaner now. It also mostly runs, just need to install the last few parts. Just like I have for the past month.

Don't worry I'm a generally friendly guy when it comes to cars :9

However, through the years, comparing SS to GT, the Camaro is consistently faster than the mustang. In '02, the last year for the camaro for a while, the SS had the 5.7L LS1 which made an under rated 325hp, and 350lb of torque. The GT had a much smaller 4.6 with about 260hp and 300lbs of torque. The Camaro also weighed more.
Plus the LS1 is an LS1, you can go find a 98 LS1 and the parts will fit a 2002 LS1. The ford 4.6 Modular engine isn't the same way, they were constantly upgrading it and changing things like the cams and heads.

What's that do?

It's a detailing tool, it gets rid of all the fine dust, dirt, scratches, particles, everything. Makes it super smooth. I got a clay bar kit yesterday and did my car.
It ended up taking me about 5 hours, including washing, drying, clay barring, and waxing. Didn't have a polisher, or I probably could've added another hour of work.

I guess washing your car by yourself is cheaper than going to a carwash. And you feel more satisfied once you're done.

There's also the fact that you could have two of the earlier GTs from that generation identical in every way except that their engines came from different plants, which would make most parts interchangeability impossible. All the more reason to dislike the '94-'04 Mustang.

Not to mention car washes can't scrub things like lichen off. Less risk of tetanus though.
