'These Two Pony Car Titans Have Been Duking It Out For Decades'

Seeing as how it's National Donut Day and all, it seems only fitting that we highlight a MotorWeek video that pits the 1998 versions of the Chevrolet Camaro Z28 SS and Ford Mustang SVT Cobra against one another. Because 'Merica!

Back in 1998, Chevrolet was threatening to cancel the Camaro due to declining sales, so John Davis opines that this test could sadly be the last time these motoring icons faced off. Thankfully, 15 years later, we know that not to be the case. I wouldn't want to live in that world.


Unfortunately, the audio is a bit off on this one, so when John Davis talks, it's a bit like watching an old Godzilla movie. But hey! It's great fun anyway. Take a gander and see if your favorite pony car comes out on top.

MotorWeek Theater is our showcase of some of our favorite classic reviews from public television's finest motoring program. How does this video only have 5,308 views on YouTube? Why do you hate America so much?
