Wait until next year, the automotive press will be back to slagging the Mustang, as usual. I read the above mentioned C&D article (vs Camaro and Scat Pack Challenger) and it reminded me how Motor Trend gave such great reviews of the S197 in 2005, and by 2006 was back to using the word "antiquated" in reference to handling and interior.

I am however, amazed to see positive press from Road and Track. That publication tends to have a general disdain for American cars that aren't top of the line Corvettes.

The press just likes whatever's new, while it's new. And next year, that will be the Camaro.

2001 GT Convertible
/1967 Coupe
All the usual bolt-on's /200 I6, C4

And a few Explorers too... 2008 4.0 XLT 4x2, 1996 XLT 5.0 4x2, 2003 Sport Trac XLT 4.0 4x4
