They'll never compare to a Porsche or anything, but it's not like they handle like trucks.

In those days those were mid-sized cars here. LTD's, Bonnevilles, Caprices, etc. were full-size cars. Nowdays I get a rental and their idea of a full-size car is a Toyota Camry. Wasn't many years ago in the US it would have been considered a compact.

Do you guys have any rear-wheel-drive V8 family cars? We have several.




In God, we trust; all others must provide data.

That ticks me off too, er, well, it used to a few years back... Then again, the Toyota Tundra is considered a "full" sized truck, IMO, BARELY. My F150 belittles it.

Plus, the Mustang had out sold Camaro like 4 to 1. Mostly due to the V6 model too. Thing is, HP is vogue again, new Cobra's are running like 390HP at the rear wheels closing the gap on the 'Vette.

IMO, what drove Mustangs is the name, and more importantly, the idea behind it. The modern day man and his horse...

I think what drove the mustang is the bang for the buck. Its a pretty descent sportscar thats is dirt cheap.
Camaros are slower (And I believe more expansive) while the vette is slightly faster but much more expansive.

Talking about late 90's mustangs here.

Probably the most popular cars in Australia are:

Ford Falcon...



...and Holden Commodore. (Holden is a GM subsid.)



Both come in ute and station wagon versions also. Standard they're both 6 cyl (Ford is Inline, Holden is V), but sports models have V8's. There are also luxury cars built by these companies that are based on the longer, station wagon wheelbase.

In Australia, you're either a Ford or Holden person, even if you don't drive one. There's no middle ground.
