The new platform is much much better.
People really liked the S197 when it came out because it kind of had that "outdated" feel to it...or retro as most people would put it. The new bodystyle has too many curves on it. I think the new Camaros are eyesores. The only other latemodel muscle car I like is the SRT8 Challenger. Everybody is welcome to their own opinion though. But you are right, Ford did upgrade the powertrain and they did a good job doing it. It was just a little late forthcoming.

Too much to list and nothing really that great. If interested check out my profile.
Numbers are just that...numbers.
