    This is the WEAKEST argument of all time. I have said this with every argument comparing new vs used cars. I will give you $68K, it is going to take all of that to make a car that still wont be as nice as a new Vette. No warrenty, you plan to toss in heated seats, navigation, and one of the best front to rear weight ratios of any car out there? Your going to knock a fox down to 3100 lbs, and be quiet and comfortable yet still run 130+ mph (figuring a few mods on the Vette)? Your going to do all this, get mid to upper 20 mpg in the highway, and have the resale value.

    NOPE, I think you don't actually understand there is a LOT more to a new Z06 than just a 1/4 mile time, and that is what the money buys you, and some of that stuff can't be had in a fox body.

    I am sure you have never actually tried to price out building a 130 mph trap, stock ideling, mid to upper 20 mpg, with all brand new warranty parts. Now remember your tranny and rear have to have all of the best stuff out there, all brand new, and your car CAN'T be a drag only car, has to handle like a dream, ride like a new car (yes the Vette although somewhat harsh does ride like a new car) and do it all without getting your hands dirty. :D

    See what I mean. New vs Old never compares right, you can sway it either way. We build cars to put our own blood swet and tears in them, Vette owners buy these cars to have the fastest, best car their $75000 can buy!

    PLEASE post more. you are making yourself look like more of an idiot with every post you make. like I said before, you are comparing apples to oranges. a corvette z06 is the best car you can buy for the money. period.

    if you think any corvette is a POS, let alone a procharged one, you are on some kind of drug, and you need mental help. go back to studying for your geometry test, maybe your parents will let you drive next year.

    All you guys talk about road races and top speed and what you can trap. A slick is a mod no matter how you look at it. As far as best car for the money that is the funniest damn thing I have ever heard. All I care about is 1/4 is the vette doesnt show up with slicks on it then guess what idiot? that his loss NOT MINE. I dont give a **** what you think or anyone else on here that would rather a vette than a mustang. I will stick by mine. I have outran MANY MANY corvettes with a N/A 5.0 so WHATEVER. I am not posting anymore in this stupid thread to **** faces that dont know what you are talking about...PEACE OUT STUPID ****S:flag:

    I think it could be done if you've got the cash. Any motor that's built to run 8 seconds at the track mounted up to a 6 speed with 3.08 gears in the rear end...a full road race suspension and you shouldn't have a problem. Yeah, you're not going to run with it at 180mph but you should keep up at least to 130 or mayb 150 but then the aerodynamics are really gonna hurt the Mustang. Sure, you won't get as nice of a ride but you could still have AC and you could build it up with some Dynamat to kill some noise and make it more civil. If you stick to a speed matching competition then it just takes money...once you go beyond that then you start asking a car to be and do something that it was never meant to do or be.

    It's guys like you that make give mustang owners a bad name.
    As far as i'm concerned the C6 z06 being the best bang for buck car is a fact, not an opinion.

    Read back through your posts, you brag about your own car in every single one of them. You sound like a ricer trapped in a mustang owners body.
    As far as your concerned you own the fastest car on the planet.
    When you are done smoking z06's, what's your next target, the Bugatti?

    I've got the holeshot on more than one Vette but past about 65mph it's no contest with even a bolt on N/A 5.0 unless it's just built like a monster and can run 8k RPM on the street and make at least 400rwhp on all motor.

    someone with a brain :nice:

    it's pretty sad that someone can't respect the better car.

    when did I ever say it's impossible for a mustang to beat a Z06, you are only reading what you want to read. You are missing the point. Calm down for a second and just realize that you are wrong. I know it hurts to eat your words, but it needs to be done. really. and you may have outrun many corvettes with an N/A 5.0, but it doesn't really count if it's a C4 or a LS1 C5. sorry.


    that's really too bad that it wasn't a joke. porsches ARE less reliable than vettes, i've heard it from people that OWN them, AND a friend of mine that works at a porsche dealer. Porsches are not worth the extra $70k unless you just have money to blow. oh yeah, and you really think the porsche that is running in the lemans is identical to the production model porsche? right. I could also say that a chevy cavalier with the ecotec platform rules pro FWD drag racing, does that mean that everyone should go buy a cavalier? your brother may see warranty sheets, every car goes in for warranties, it doesn't make the car "junk". have you ever owned a corvette? no. quit talking out your ass please just because you have an ingrained hate for chevrolet cars. OH NO!!! ITS NOT A FORD!!! ITS JUNK!!!

    someone lock this thread, i'm tired of this ignorant BS.

    You will come to learn one day there is a LOT more to a car than a 1/4 mile number, and take that from someone who likes his 1/4 mile number (afterall my E7 stock cammed car ran better than the 12.6 or 12.7 that you ran :D).

    :lol: The guy most filled with the BS is tired of it. If a Chevrolet engineer told you at a Kentucky service meeting regarding the all new Z06 Corvette to expect a lot of warrantee issues with the upcoming product, that you'd get to deal with because the company wanted the product on the street on schedule, as opposed to curing them before they left their factory because it was cheaper to do it that way for said company, what can you think? Aforementioned engineer also said all the best things you could hear about the C6, they didn't want a repeat of the problems on the Z06. Says junk to me. The GT class at LeMans is a factory car with the exhaust and interior removed. Do I need a Vette? Uh, no. Do you want a Cavalier? Don't care. The 69 427 Corvette is an amazing beast, so I guess I don't hate Chevrolets, just junk. The Toyota and Durango in my garage aren't Fords, and they surely haven't proved to be warrantee problems Z06's are. All you want to hear is how you've right, you've converted us, so we can all leg hump the wonderous and butt ass ugly Z06. You just didn't leave enough room for us behind you.:lock: Please!
