Detroit Muscle

I know you guys hate Detroit but we're talkin' muscle cars here. Who doesn't love muscle cars? It seems Ford has done quite a job with the 2012 Boss 302. Of course, we're all pretty familiar with the other iron coming out of the motor city. Here is a little article you might enjoy.

I love Detroit muscle cars...I had a few back in the day.The newest performance cars from Detoit got it waay over the old iron.A fella in my RC club is a GM engineer & sometimes he drives a ZR1 Corvette to the field.

...this is the first production supercharged Corvette with 620 HP.

..MSRP $111K..I heard the dealers are demanding $125K for 'em.

No question, very cool stuff coming out of the big 3 these days. I was never a FORD man but I really like the new Mustang. I had really high hopes for the Camaro but the new body style doesn't do it for me. The Challanger is Sweet too! And of course the new Vetts are crazy fast. I'll take one of each please.

Camaro, Stang, Vette, and Challenger all look very cool, but why is the Charger so damned ugly? Plus it has 2 doors too many. Stupid Dodge.

Stangs have come a LONG way from the "schoolteacher's sportscar" on a Falcon chassis and the build quality is MUCH better.
