So, anyone want to imagine a nice motor trend test run of all these cars.. if they existed...
i see similar cherry red paint on all of them... each numbered and ordered in a race pattern.

2004 Pontiac firebird* (disqualified for lack of hp)
2004 Pontiac trans am
2004 Pontiac GTO
2004 Chevy Camaro
2004 Chevy Corvette
2004 Ford Mustang SVT
2004 Ford GT

100 laps around a test track...

which one would win?
should i add any other cars to this list?

First would be the Gt-40 Second: Vette Third: Mustang Fourth: Trans Am (WS-6) Fifth: Camaro Sixth: GTO Seventh: Firebird (doesn't fit since it's a V-6) The mustang may be able to beat out the vette however and the GTO is just a big ass heavy ass car.

Hmm... Interesting comparo. I'd be curious to see the results.

I would add the Viper to the list though.

how could the Vette beat the GT? It's not possible unless you're talking about a 10 year old racing say mario Andretti

EDIT: Assuming we're talking road course, and not some oval thing.
<font size="2" face="Verdana, Arial">um Omni. i hate to say this, but are you insane?

hes talking about the GT here, you know, the GT40... mid-Engine... 500+ HP... you're saying you think a vette could beat the GT on a road course?

now i cant say i know for sure or anything, but i would bet my left testical that the GT would beat the Vette in a road course challenge.

I wouldn't bet either way, because the GT is a totally unknown quantity in the chassis deparment. I think the Z06 would put up a great fight either way, but until we know what the GT is capable of... same with the new Viper... We need road course numbers on it as well.

joecomputerdude: An oval with twisties IS a road course.


So.. I dunno. I would like to see:
04 Ford GT
04 Dodge Viper
04 Chevrolet Corvette Z06
04 Ford Mustang Cobra
