Yeah I could deal with a Hemi in a two-door coupe ala Duster or Dart.
However, it seems that all of the other domestic manufacturers have
decided to let Ford have the Pony Car market all to themselves. I
wouldn't mind seeing a retro `67 Camaro with the LS-2 in it either.
Seems as if you want a Pony Car nowadays you got to stick with the
Stang. There just isn't any other choice. Until the 300 & the new
Charger the domestic manufacturers also left the RWD sedan market to
Ford as well. I don't get either decision, but hey I don't run an

because I'll be damned if I ever change..."
