Ford Mustang GT vs C5 Corvette
This discussion has been closed.
nothing related to the engine, but only in getting fuel into the tank. And by now, Ford
I am sure has it solved. Turning the hose upside down is said to work, though I don't
know about that. You hear strange things on the Web. The gripe about fuel not going
in was pretty common on threads on the Mustang forum.
Which is better, a Stang or a Vette? Well they both have their selling points. Both would be fun to own. If getting in and out of a C5 Vette is not too hard on the back at the time, I may buy one in a few years. I liked the C5 series, and found the entry and exit easier than the C4 by far. Still, it does sit low, so it may be hard on the back. I have found, when I owned the Miata, that in town it is harder to drive do to low seat position, and that other cars do not notice you down there. So advantage to Mustang vs, Corvette in seeing over things and being seen. Other than that, Corvettes look awesome, and I am sure out handle the Stang. I do like'em both. For now, I am just cruisin' for a few years - as in PT Cruiser. Gone is the Miata. If I had a garage, a Miata or a Corvette would have a home. As it is now, the car stays outside. Will also consider an 'o4 or maybe an o6 Stang some day, unless I can no longer stand the high fuel costs. In CA it is now $3 for gas !
And whoever would pay 240,000 for a Ford GT needs to have their head examined (unless, of course, it's one of the original GT40s).
I was initially attracted to the Shelby when I read the price was going to be in the high $30's, but with it inching up closer and closer to $50k, I'm having serious second thoughts.
As noted, the Mustang will not handle as well as the Vette out of the box, so expect to spend more there to get it to handle. Of course 450hp would be nice out of the box ...
As for appreciation, I'm thinking over the long term, as a long-term investment, as a low-mileage vintage car, in, say, 10-15 years. If you buy a Shelby Mustang and put it in the garage, I bet it will be worth at least 3 times what you paid for it, adjusting for inflation, in 10 years. Can that be said for a C 06, a comparably priced and powered car?
I see a hell of lot more '04 and '05 Vettes on the road than even stock GT Premiums, and compared to the Mustang GT Premium, the GT 500 Shelby will be rare as hen's teeth.
Lastly, there are hell of lot more used '05 Vettes for sale in the paper than '05 GT Premiums.
Plus Mustangs are made by ford.
Plus i dont suffer the indignity of driving a chevy or worse an import yikes
This Is My Sister
PS. What is that, a mosquito bite just below yer "sister's" left knee?
I Love this Car, and the Supercharger increased my fun factor.
Somethin about crankin her up and snappin 2nd gear right before a 2 wheeler with "instant-on" turns the corner.
My 12 y/o thinks he's taking it to college....I'm thinkin of re-writing my burial instructions......
engines just needs some TLC and will blow the doors off any Mustang, saleen,cobra. in some cases without The Mods.if imagine if the C5 or C6 was supercharged!! my god. its just fact,
i own a 2001 zo6 and never been taken by any Mustang old or new and its pushing only 455rwhp.480rwtq
without NItro or supercharger.
These cars are made to out perform any Ford Garbage that comes off the Production lines, in fact they are built to compete with the Porsche and Ferrari,s in Lemans and win 9 out of ten in there class. Oh the new Dog The ford GT, and remember they cost about 100k less then the GT and Etc.
Anyway, i have a 95 mustang GT, Its Garbage. 5.0 HO engine,
The best thing is that, when your with your girl friend, there no room for her friends!!! so you have her all to yourself. ya love those 2 seaters
WITH THE MUSTANG GT500 475HP
ALL FORD MOTORS ARE GARBAGE. WITH OUT A SUPERCHARGER!
THERE NO BETTER THAN TUNA IMPORT! ITS JUST NOT IN THE ENGINE! OUT OF THE BOX THE VETTE IS MUCH BETTER. ALL AROUND EXCEPT GROUND CLEARANCE!! BIG WOOP
THE MUSTANGS NEEDA SUPERCHARGER!!!! TO GET ALL THAT HP!
THE GM'S MOTOR DONT NEED IT! AND IF IT HAD IT WE WOULD BE LOOKING AT 600HP+
CAN A MUSTANG PULL A 0.9 TO 1.0 GEE TURN?
GM DID IT RIGHT! AGAIN,
BTW - the GT500 has 500hp, not 475.
Everyone, I'm sure there are grammar/syntax/punctuation forums somewhere on the Internet, but they're not here. Let's stick to discussing cars and not each other. Thanks.

When I opened the door on the C4 Vette I noticed exposed screws holding the door trim on. Is this stock?
By all means, if the planets would realign and my $$$ didn't go for replacing college freshmens totaled cars or 5 figures going to the dentist, I'd look damn good in a ZO6.
