3 Modern Muscle Cars

I just saw this on MSN.

The strange part is there are reviews on it already.....Only one "hater" is the good part...so far.

IMO, they should be comparing the 2010 GT rather than the 2009.

I don't think any of these sites should let people review vehicles until they are actually available to the public. Good reviews or not, those comments should be removed.

How about the guy saying how great it is, but spells it Camero. Then there is another who is concerned it's not really made in America. I love these enthusiasts who really don't know wtf they are talking about. Yay for the internetszz.

EDIT: I attempted to spell Camaro wrong, but I couldn't even do that!

True, but either way i think the mustang's little engine is out-gunned. Sorry ford. Better bring out that 5.0 quick.

1998 White Buick Regal GS
2002 Electron Blue Corvette Coupe
2007 Honda Accord Coupe
2009 Silver Metallic Chevy Tahoe
2011 Convertible Camaro SS comming soon!

Except that everything today blows all of them out of the water in every aspect besides personality.

Yes, no need to beg here. We will prove you wrong just as quick.

As a GENERAL rule, todays car's are:

Safer
Faster
Better handling
More fuel efficient
More comfortable

Styling is an opinion, so I will not start arguing semantics.

2005 CTSV BLACK LS7 Clutch/Flywheel/Slave, Tick Speed Bleeder, Tilton Clutch MC, RevShift Bushings, Domestic V8 Solutions (shifter, 8.8 Diff conversion, srut tower braces, sub-frame connectors), SLP cats, no cags, xpipe, bullet mufflers, Volante, iPod dock, G-force tune; 379hp 381tq.

Killing 5th gens like it is my job.

Fuel Efficient and more comfortable yes. The original muscle cars were much faster and powerful. Depending on what type of classic car you have some of them were built like tanks. I say better handling is right down the middle depending on what you have.

ANY chance you can back that up with something beyond empirical evidence? Like, oh, I don't know, GROSS HP numbers? Dear God dude. Comfort, fuel efficiency, climate control, braking, rust protection,etc. etc.
