I like the front, but the back looks like a Honda Prelude, and all of the modern muscle cars are just too damn fat. Too high off the road, too much plastic, and too tall overall.

Not to me and Peter.

Seriously, I sat in a Camaro and thought the windows were about half as tall as they should be. I felt like I was looking out gun slits.

*Sigh*, the trade offs of style and function.

Are "Gun Slits" an available option on some cars?

I'm carrying around more anger than I should!

Regarding the topic, though: I'd take the 300lbs back for a stereo, A/C and carpet in the trunk.

I agree with youse guys.

Anybody spending the kind of money it's going to take to get that powertrain is probably going to want a stereo. Fer chrissake. I mean, if you're going to go after weight THAT HARD, shouldn't you pull out the rear seat, power windows, power locks, et. al?

And yeah, the rear end is unforgivable.

I like the rear end.

And I'm usually a "leg guy".
