    02 WRX vs. Older Mustang

    Hey fellas, so my friend Anthony has a beautiful mustang. I have no idea what year or model so I took a picture for you mustang experts. Its a beautiful car and shines like it's new. I don't know what has been done performance wise, so I'm assuming it's stock. My mods in in my profile, I have no EM yet. What do you think the outcome of a few races would be:
    1) 1/4
    2) Dig
    3) Roll
    Just to be clear, I am not trying to beat him, put his car down or anything in anyway. Its one of the prettiest mustangs I've ever seen. Just curious what you guys think the outcome would be. Thanks guys.

    John

    Looks like about a 66 like one of my friends has. You'll murder it from any angle if its not modded and the stock engine. Without looking it up, I'd say its a ford 289.

    Fairly certain that is a '68. If its a gt then it most likely has a 289, unless someone dropped a 302 or 351 in it. With a well built motor the car will keep up from a roll. Never be able to get out of a dead stop like a rex though.

    A friend of mine in high school had a mustang like that with a 351 (I think) in it and a bunch of suspension work that was one mean car. I think it would have taken my WRX but I never raced him or anything, but it sure felt like it. That was a really heavily modded mustang though.

    It's beautiful. The Mustang that is...

    Looks like some fairly modern aftermarket wheels and tires... but I would agree with the others and say it would probably lose in a race.

    But it would win in a looks contest... that is a classic machine... very very nice.

    It has the potential to be really fast, but the likelyhood of it having a swapped motor and making enough power to take down a rex is pretty low.

    I mark it as proof that speed is not king... there is nothing that a rex owner can do to make thier car be as classic as that Stang.

    Most likely

    Most likely your friends stang is a '66 or '67, 289 CID is an accurate guess and is it is stock.... well as beautiful as it is... it would not have a snow balls chance in hell of beating your subie..

    I never found those 60s mustangs to be very good looking, but thats my opinion, besides the mach I.

    You will win, unless the stang is modded, then it is up in the air. But you should have the advantage, especially if it is the opriginal motor (it's only 40 or so years old).

    That is a pretty good looking stang. I saw a bunch of sweet ones this weekend in AC.

    Looks like a '67 or '68, and it is absolutely beautiful. I can't wait until I can afford to have a car like that. Ooh, someday...
