    Then you say something like, "oh. Sounds good," because you don't want to be the asshole by telling them that trim doesn't answer the question of size. Clearly, though, they don't know what's going on in their own modified engine bay.
    I grew up working on cars with my dad. One of my first cars was a 1972 Buick GS 455. I knew everything about that motor because I built it with my old man. Now, with my GTO I just take it in to the dealership when a light comes on or something doesn't feel right.

    Thats cool, at least you are still driving something that is a V8 and rear wheel drive.

    If the cars I listed aren't sports cars, what are they?
    Classify them as whatever you want. I will do the same.

    Profound.

    Hi Chris. And thanks for doing the legwork.

    its all corporate politics, thats, why the wont release the actual numbers achieved by the new camaro, think about it, how pissed would ford be that they got stomped on by a full second, and the challenger a second and a half, we all know this is a mid 12 second car. its just if the magazine tells it like it is, next go around dodge and ford wont release them with any test vehicles, plus the mustang probably had a bunch of cash in the glove box.,
