After comparing Mustang 350 to Corvette Z51 they found:

Vette faster on track
Vette faster on drag strip
Vette with better g force on turns
Vette with more torque
Vette stopping distance much better
Vette yielding better mileage

So guess who won? That's right, the Mustang!
Their driver hit 7th gear when trying to find 5th. How bad do you have to be to make that shift?
Claimed Mustamg was better looking both inside and out. Anybody buy that?
Said steering feel inferior to Mustang.

So who's trading in their C7 fot a Mustang???

We all know the rags have to pass out the good reviews or they get no advertising $$$$$'s. Was the Mustangs turn. Yes even if it is ugly imho.

I am of the opinion that every one has a right to an opinion, including an incorrect one such as the reviewers produced. Reviewing research articles has taught me to look at who funded the research in the first place.

So, I was mistaken when I accused C&D of judging soley by the numbers...see SS vs. GT article, where the GT lost for being a GT (Grand Tourer) and not a numbers generating, more track focused machine like the SS.

When you stop focusing on numbers, there are some unexpectedly fun cars out there.

My 9 year old son read the article and laughed when he read that Car and Driver picked the Mustang....
He found the points given for fun to drive too subjective...
While I share his opinion I enjoyed listening to him tell me about how wrong the article is.
