Flyer Posted February 14, 2004 Report Share Posted February 14, 2004 Now I have been told by some people, who swear up and down that GT's don't stand a chance against Northstar powered Caddy's. But I strongly suspected that they were dreaming of a different outcome, than what would really result from a head to head match up of the cars... Of course the Mustang has a big advantage with the manual 5 speed vs. an antiquated (only in gear offerings), 4 speed? (common!! a "state of the art" luxury sedan should be sporting no less than 5 speeds in an automatic, and preferrably 6!! These cars cost $45-55K new!!) Anyway, my friend and coworker was so kind as to test my theory after we left work the other day, both of our cars are bone stock, and we punched it from a rolling stop, and right off the bat I jumped ahead about a car length until he caught some good traction, and by mid second gear (for me) he was right with me, and before I was at the top of second gear, he was pulling away strong. Ah, I love these cars, but as I theorized, they indeed are not steed killers. --Flyer '99 'Vert 'Vette 45k '97 SLS 55k Deceased: <'68 Mustang 200+k>, <'86 GMC S-10 180+k>, <'86 VW GTI 180+k>, <'86 Seville 195+k>, <'93 Seville 175+k> Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
