--- 370Z ---

Height: 51.8 in
Length: 167.1 in
Width: 72.6 in

--- Mustang ---
Weight: 3501lbs
Height: 55.6 in
Length: 188.5 in
Width: 73.9 in

IMHO, both cars are overweight, with the 370Z being moreso, for its size.

There ya go! Plus a 370z isn't an american muscle v8, like I said in my post. I am pretty confident that power wise, the 5.0 would analrape the 370z. That 170lb difference can be directly attributed to the size difference. Also, look in my eariler post. I said something along the lines of "and if they could keep the backseat". Last time I checked, the 370z has no backseat.
