    here we go again..... the Corvette definately has much better suspension work over the 350Z... your not just paying for looks and straight line performance afterall
    (atleast we are in the right thread now)

    oh and btw i may be blind, but im assuming thats a Turbo in your avatar?

    dude, the Corvette is notorious for its crappy suspension, why do you think the previous Z51 package even existed? because the suspension was crap. It uses leaf springs for god's sake. those are so bad. they are running into the same problems that Ferrari and Lambo ran into 20 years ago. how to make a V8 in a light car handle.

    the c6 is a much smaller and lighter and the suspension is a huge upgrade over the older c5.. I dont see how a Z will outhandle it or be equal... the Z's are around the same weight as the new c6, 3100-3200lbs i beleive

    no, thats GM marketing in your head. the thing is the same. Engine is difference and interior has a facelit. ditto for the exterior but the chassis is the same! so will the suspension!

    Sorry, no.

    Pantera not made anymore, and it wasnt even Ford it was Lambo, and those cost a bit more than 60k

    and the 351 HELLNO, if you read the entire thread, i said V8's that can handle.

    that Ford wont handle for anything.

    Lambo? Dude, do your homework before you make such retarded comments.

    Detomaso made the car...Ford made the engine...

    how am i "retarted"?

    it is a LAmbo "The last Pantera design-- the fourth generation so to speak--was the Nuevo 200, redesigned from front to back by the famous Lamborghini Miura and Countach designer, Marcello Gandini, who created an exciting up-date, while still retaining some of the unique forms Tom Tjaarda’s original design had in 1971." designed by Lambo with a Ford V8.

    watch your-self. you dealing with the Car nut.

    Detomaso is completely seperate from Lambo...the last pantera generation was DESIGNED by the lambo designers...which I think didn't even make it to the US...just because Lambo people made ONE MODEL doesn't make the thing a lambo...they just probably brought them in to design the body...

    now your doing damage control.

    you mention the Demataso Pantera.

    the Pantera was the model.
    the Demataso was the company.

    the only model which was any good was teh last-gen Pantera, which had a Ford V-8, and a Lambo designed Chassis, and body.
