Re: Mustang VS Monaro......

Pontiac GTO

Highs: 400 horsepower, M3-grade acceleration???, refined interior, playful chassis.

Lows: High-effort shifter, hopeless pedals, bland styling, costs more than 30K.

The Verdict: A fast and refined player that doesn't inspire coveting or lust

Only milk and juice come in 2 Litres...

Protien, Creatine, and other supplements all below retail, PM me for a price list...

Re: Mustang VS Monaro......

Wow some seriously fast numbers from the goat though.
But damn it's got 100hp more than the Stang !
How much would $29000 US equate to in $AU? 50k?
Both cars are very good bang for ya buck.

Re: Mustang VS Monaro......

Gotta love the look of that Mustang! Retro sixties maybe, but it's awesome. Shows up the Monaros styling when its side by side. Add another hundred or so horsies..and mmmm!
Now theoretically, it being $US5000 cheaper than the GTO in the US, we should have it here at what?....$65,000....

Shame it doesn't work that way....

Yup, couldn't agree more, the Monaro/GTO thing looks cheap and nasty (not to mention blo*dy ugly!) next to the Mustang.

Re: Mustang VS Monaro......

on top gear they reviewed the stang. they said it was an awesome lookin car compared to the euro boxes. the price of it is good to for the GT model. if Ford built them RHD and Aus imported a few for 55k on road (yeah i know dreaming) i would get one.

Truly the deepest kiss one can feel, and the one most sought after, is the one you will not survive....

Thats funny, I always thought it was based on the Commodore, I must admit I feel slightly patriotic towards the GTO as it is based primarily on Aussie know how. That being said I would still take the Mustang anyday, it looks about 10 times better, plus it has Steve McQueen in the ad.
