    Mustang Gt. The Gto looks to much like a Grand Prix.

    What Mustang GT costs $35K?? A loaded GT Premium is only stickers for around $30K.

    you forgot some of these car noobs dont know that the mustang is the best value for cost:hp ratio so they compare it to cars that cost $10,000 more

    GTO has better build quality, better interior, better engine, better exhaust note, better acceleration, better ride comfort, better technology, more features, more subtlety, more exclusitivity, more refinement, bigger modding community, bigger brakes, bigger towing capacity, bigger engine, bigger interior, bigger top speed, bigger backed globally (HSV, Holden, Vauxhall, GM) and for the best part.... American and Australian interfused muscle heritage for t3h win.

    And for the record, the GTO is beautiful:

    For a little extra you can transform a subtle GTO into this:

    Mustang = cheaper and cheapness is what you'll get. :o

    Even GTO owners dont like being compared to Mustangs.
    They like to be viewed in a similar class as a BMW or Mercedes.
    Aussie muscle cars are influenced by European designs unlike American designed POS cars. :fawk:

    03 Cobra > GTO.

    dollar for dollar for mods, no comparison.

    03 Cobra turns too :hs:

    03 Cobra = T56

    03 Cobra = not quite as heavy as a goat either

    03 Cobra = Less Expensive

    03 Cobra = motherfucking win.

    Neither is ride or practicality.

    I'd get the GTO as it's simply the better driving car, fastest doesn't really matter to me.

    the two cars really shouldn be compared to each other as they are for different interests

    if you want a refined daily driver that is fast and handles pretty well, get a GTO

    if you want to save a few dollars and an extensively expandible muscle car esp if its for taking to the drag strip, get a Mustang, though with a couple mods they handle insanely well

    get what you like, i liked the mustang and i love my decision, i like the 05 GTOs too tho

    Still a 3 year old car, probably with little to no warrantee for when things do go wrong.
