The Mustang carries 2 more passengers and Ford will never kill off the Mustang. Japanese car companies have a frequent tendency to stop producing sports cars for years at a time (R.I.P. Supra, 300ZX, RX-7 ). This makes them fragile in the sense that finding aftermarket or O.E. replacement parts is an excercise in patience. Anyone whom has owned a Nissan knows that this is painfully true.
Also, the new DEW Mustang chassis that is coming out will provide a strong rebuttal against the current Nissan chassis.

Go Nissan.....Go Ford....Damn, I cannot make up my mind

Really it comes down to the individual. What one person will like about the Nissan, someone else will hate.

They are different cars for a reason, to be given a choice when in the market for buying a new car. Either would be an excellent choice, there is no reason to knock either of them.

If you want one of them, drive them both and you choose. Cars are not just ment to be chosen on its 0-60 or 1/4 mile times. There is a lot more going on when a manufacture builds a car.

You go drive them, then tell us what you think.

Sorry for being overly nationalistic in my previous post. Skyline is correct. He's a lucky British bloke. We Yankees usually get the left overs from Japan and Germany.

Eh, that's not quite how it is. The US import car Nazi's tell Japan to stop sending over high-horsepower ozone killing machines. At least according to the US smog officials.

That's more of the right idea.

The 3rd Gen RX-7 died in 1999 over in Japan, I think. And they got the RX-8 in 2003. So that's not as big as a gap and 1993 - 2004.
Jerks.

Besides the pollution Factor most of the Japenese/European versions of cars don't meet the U.S.'s higher crash rating standards which tend to make the car heavier.

Well.

I would take any American car in any condition and NOT sell it but fix it and drive it, but i would never take a japaneese car and keep it (Except a Nissan Skyline, GO SKYLINEUSA!!!)

So it's a better car because your "saleen" is faster in a drag race?

Yo guys, I really need more backup in my struggle with the forum i am arguing in right now. I am fighting an Army of diehard Nissan Z's by myself while trying to convince them that out of the whole selection of Mustangs, the Stangs have more power and potential. A Z packs in only about 280 horses but thats nothing compared to a Cobra, Saleen, Rousche, or Steeda. Z does 0-60 in about 5.4 seconds. Lol not even close with the stangs. Any Mustang fan who wants to help me with this forum be my guest. Write a comment or two on your thoughts.
This is the forum, it might not be the latest page.

not tru there are tons of parts for the Supras 300ZX's and RX--7. but i agree w/ u that they die off easy. they were overpriced. and y buy them when u can have a cheaper mustang or a honda for a fraction of the cost and could still make them fast. thats y new car like the Z, EVO and STi are a lil cheaper than the older japenese cars and still come loaded w/ alot of features.

but of course svtcobra the rouche and saleen and cobra are better they cost a hell of alot more an they are already tweaked out of the box. im not sayin the Z is better but its hard to compare the to. and the new VQ series engine which the 350z has is a pretty amazing engine for a V6.
