'The IROC-Z Corners Hard, Brakes Quickly, And Really Hauls The Mail'

Prepare yourselves, fans of MotorWeek. I'm about to show you the greatest thing you will see all week. Let's take a trip back to 1985 for this comparo between a Ford Mustang GT 5.0, a Chevrolet Camaro IROC-Z, and a Pontiac Trans-Am.

This is a tale of leather jackets, absurd mustaches, ancient vehicle technology, horrible Maryland redneck accents ("THREE HUNNER'N TWO CUBIC INCHES"), straight-line speed and extremely questionable handling. It is a tale of American glory. And it will make you want to go out and buy any of these cars for some cheap, disposable speed.

Join us as we look at America's best in 1985. Which one would you pick?

All I can think of is that these three idiots are allowed to vote...

Besides that, I'd go for the Mustang.
