I could not make it past page 2. 1) The Mustang has always been one of the best bang for buck sports cars out there. They can handle. Anyone who thinks otherwise is just a domestic hater. When they get a new chasis in 05, watch out, it will be amazing. 2) The 300ZX vs the 96 Cobra is a decent contest, I will be on the 300ZX personaly, but its a close race anyway you cut it. No Stock 300ZX or any stock Z car for that matter can take the 03 Cobra. It handles well, it's got about 425 at the crank, never mind what Ford claims, and it puts it down effectively even with IRS. But there is no 03 300Z, so its not really a fair comparo. Those of you who judge cars based on what your freinds tell you and where the machine is from are fools.
