    98 Camaro Z28 vs. 96 Cobra - both stock

    Hi guys

    Sorry for title, but the Cobra is a little bit modified the owner said on the phone.

    here are the 2 offers (remember i'm from Switzerland and there are just a few of these cars):

    a 1998 Camaro Z28, M6 without T-Tops - 310HP ~ 13000 USD
    a 1996 Ford Cobra, M5, lowered, wheel spacing, 305HP, K&N Intake (will give 5-10HP i think) ~ 14000USD

    Both have same miles & will cost me the same money. It's a fair fight i think, the Camaro should win because of the top speed. But will it handle as quick as the Cobra will?

    What do you think?

    Are you kidding me.. 22K for a 98.. and even more for an older cobra.. WOW!!! Your geting riped big time. If you want to spend that kind of money get the LS1. Lots more potential.

    I would go with the Z28. You would be saving a thousand dollars, it's two years newer, and it has a 6-speed over the 5-speed. With the extra thousand dollars saved, you can buy some goodies for the Z.

    A GTO cost around 50'000USD... we have some GTO's but they all are sepcial imports... like Mustangs (except the new ones), Camaros and all other of your great cars.

    How many Z28? I don't know. in the biggest national sellers markt are less than 5 with a manual trans and 2 of them are LT1 Camaros. Then there are some high mileage A4's but i will not drive a Camaro/T/A or Mustang with an Auto!!!!

    Here is the Link of all Camaros from 1993 with the 5.7L (LT1 and LS1). The Prices are in CHF. To get the USD divide the "Preis" wit 1.3 and you get the dollar price.

    There is no minimum wage... not really. The law in Switzerland (just my country not europe) is around 2300USD in a month. But there high taxey, high living costs (food, flat and you have to be in a health insurance company - LAW!) and you really go "under" if you have the minimum... and some people have. I have a higher wage. But you see... here live is expensive.

    Well my swiss buddy. I would go with a camaro. It looks better. And here in the U.S. every duche bag had a mustang. Its a better engine and you will be owning real american muscle.
