    Mustang is the better all-around car, and always has been, which is why it destroyed the fbody in sales.

    the only thing the F-body cars have over the mustang is straight line speed. and now with the new cobra. they dont even have that.

    I have no idea how the Mustang is winning.

    In recent years:
    LS1 > LT1 >>>>>> 4.6

    Mustang looks? meh. Especially the curvy-look generation after the fox-body and prior to the current one.

    LIke i said, aside from straight line speed the Mustang tops the f-body in every catagory. but now with the supercharged Cobra, the mustang is running 12's off the showroom floor. dare I say. in Z06 territory.

    Considering the Mustang was 4 times as popular...I'd have to say Mustang.
