There’s a muscle-car war brewing in Detroit these days. Right as the handling-champion Z/28 goes out of production, Ford delivers a Shelby-badged suckerpunch with a flat-plane-crank V8, MR dampers, and carbon fiber wheels. Head 2 Head host Jason Cammisa takes the two through a series of challenges: first, some canyon carving to see which car is better on the road. Then, a dyno shootout: can the GT350R’s 5.2-liter Voodoo make more power than the venerable 7.0-liter LS7? And then, it’s onto Chuckwalla Valley Raceway where Jason and racecar driver Randy Pobst find out not only which one is faster around the track, but which car handles best. No muscle-car comparison test would be complete without a drag race, of course, so Cammisa lines up the cars with the help of his cousin Bob from West Virginia. This episode of Head 2 Head, presented by Tire Rack (www.tirerack.com), is the one-stop shop for everything you need to know about the latest Detroit muscle-car rivalry.

      And I can't stop giggling!!! I used to own an 86 Mustang with a 351C and a Borg-Warner t45. I only got pulled over for speeding once. Officer asked me if I knew how fast I was going, and I said no, because the speedo only went to 85. He had me clocked at 137, but only gave me a warning.

      One thing I don't believe you addressed is drivability on the road, but if you buy one of these you really are buying it for the track I suppose.

      The mustang is going after the Corvette (no comparison​) as far as styling and performance. Still has a long way to go. While the Camaro looks like a muscle car the mustang have morfed into a sports car. Both have awesome power and handling but for a few bucks more I'll take a Corvette.

      If you're looking for a car that you like, its voice and driving you crave to run every morning it’s a mustang shelby 350 and And I think 526 horses are very good, even if you get 1000 horse, someone on the street will be stronger than you 👍

      All my life I have been a Ford Mustang person. This puts a smile on my face that even as a kid, it was my car of choice, it has the looks, the sound, and the power! Respect to Chevy Camaro though, I am not hating on it. It's an amazing car as well!

      HELLO to all the Ford Geeks...before ya'll loose it in your pants... facts are the Camaro is heavier, and the wheel base is over 5"s longer, than the mustang. The engine has much more torque than the Mustang, but the weight is killing the torque. With that being said, GM has to correct this problem, and I'm told they will.

      +Vernon Price Wait... are you still here? Brother, I get it. you drive a Camaro and you've gotten your feelings hurt and you're one of those pedants that just NEEDS to as you say "set people straight". You've made a ton of suppositions that have required GREAT leaps to conclusion never asserted. You're just arguing with points that only you've made and asserted. You're raging behind a screen, son. Semper Fi, Yut, Er, Kill, Stay Motivated and all that good stuff. "Knowaddaymean, Vern?"

      Aaron Thomas "I like that you're mad about this without reason."

      Oh there's totally a reason. The reason is that I enjoy setting idiots straight.

      "You're behaving like a little girl."

      You're attempting to insult me by calling me a little girl. Who's actually acting like a little girl here?

      " You care so much about something that matters so little"

      Wrong again, this is not about the cars, this is about your ignorance of the cars. Did you seriously not understand that? You're not the sharpest knife in the drawer, are you?

      "'I'm going to just have fun with you all day as long as you keep up this nonsense"

      That's what I like to hear; the hypocrisy of you telling me how dumb I am for caring so much about this, then immediately afterward saying how you're going to keep doing it all day. It's like you can't hear yourself speaking. No, go ahead. Show me how little you care about this by replying to me ALL DAY. THAT will show me. 😂😂😂😂😂

      "Yes, I... as an organic chemist working on an Alzheimer's disease cure, am stupid."

      You used the words "gapplebees" and "gaptized". Overwhelming evidence that confirms your stupidity. And that's in addition to not knowing what year it is and not knowing what generation Camaro the 2015 Z/28 is, or even what the differences are between the gen 5 and the gen 6. It's not like I have to build a case to prove that you're stupid. All that plus all your blatant contradictions as outlined above pretty much says it all.

      Now reply to me again to show me how much you don't care, because it matters so little. You know, like you just told me. 😂😂😂😂

      Aaron Thomas "but that’s not what happened this day."

      Because this was a FIFTH GENERATION CAMARO. Are you stupid or something?

      "my comment stands."

      Your comment was referencing a FIFTH GEN CAMARO.

      "Also I couldn’t care less about the infantile obsession with brand rivalry amongst consumers"

      You're literally displaying an infantile obsession with brand rivalry right now.

      "I’m all about American muscle irrespective of who makes it"

      If you respected the Camaro, would you really be making infantile jokes about being gapped? Really? Think about it.

      "And yes I understand the concept of time"

      Do you, though? Would your comments hold up today, with a current day Mustang and a current day Z/28 equivalent, i.e. the ZL1 1LE?

      this really does not say anything, just a talking mustang fan, and for sure paid. Jaja

      every lap or race the car and the driver can behave in different ways, there are so many things.
      Now, I have two camaros a V6 320 HP 2015 Convertible Red, and a V8 659 HP ZL1 automatic 10 change.

      but let's not talk about it, let's talk about this better, CAMARO # 14 of the fastest cars in the world, see the tests, besides Chevrolet and Ford are Brothers NOT enemies.

      What a joke they obviously upgraded the mustang whereas they didn’t upgrade the camaro. You can clearly see the way they drove the car around the circuit. The traction control has so much difference. The camaro is so much better in many different ways

      I just watched motorweek compare the 1982 mustang and Camaro. Interesting to hear the announcer talk about how awesome they were - both cars were in the 15.5 sec range. Crazy what these new versions are and what they can do now. Love the 50ish year old rivalry!
