Edmond's test of the Mustang GT, RX-8, 350Z (hahaha)

Hopefully not a repost. I thought these cars were supposedly fast.
I know I "gotta have it".

Keep in mind they rate the '04 GTO at 5.5s 0-60 and 14.0s in the 1/4 mile.

I still want to know what the drag coefficient is on the Mustang. Judging by that nose, I'd say it's up there with a barn door.

Saw a six banger today with the factory knock off spinner center caps. Truly a stupid looking car.

I looked at buying an RX-8 when my GTO deal fell through, and while it was a nice, sporty car (the one I was gonna get was fully loaded), it just didn't have the punch and knock-you-silly acceleration of the GTO....and the exhuast not was terrible to my muscle car ears. Power delivery horrible, a real high strung beast. And I love to be able to induce lots of tire-spinning oversteer with the throttle...couldn't do that in teh RX-8. Nice car and all, but nothing like a GTO.
