      Yup...they were pretty weak cars and could not take the abuse that an 'A' body Mopar would take. It took me about 3 years to figure that out and started selling them off and paying more attention to my Mopars.

      I ran into that too and especially so when I joined the Houston Mustang Owners Association. The Shelby club changed a lot of stuff and many of the members left and when to the Mustang club and they were the most arrogant car people I ever met!

        I got to where I do not do any club functions or association on the average. I find the forums a better place for idea and technical information exchange. For the very few times I will venture to a show other than a swap meet it is usually a cruise in where my appointed time of arrival and departure is of my choosing. The only club I ever belonged to that were not stuffy was the Porsche gang. Ihave some 14 British cars...I attend one meet at the request of a friend who was a member..the gang drove to the local pub in late model J-cars and talked about what shop was doing what work to their cars..this I could not identify with in any manner so that shut that door. I am a hands on type...check writing is needed in some instances of expertise..but for every aspect of ownership..sorry...not me..color me out of there.

        Every 69 Z/28 had a 302 small block, engine code DZ. If it was a 396 it wasn't a Z/28. Maybe an SS?

        I had a 99 cobra convertible back in 99 thru 04. I beat the piss out of that car and the only thing I ever replaced on it were the tires. 110000k miles of high speeds, engine braking and tire smoking and when I sold it, it was as strong as the day I bought it. The engine braking was so common for me I never even needed to replace the brakes. LOL

          I've had Both & in many different configurations... if I was to buy another a 67-71 Camaro SS, RS or Z28 with a DZ 302 {67-69 Firebird 400 is better looking & fun too}, or a LT-1, or any BB 396-427... Mustangs 69-70 Boss 302 or maybe a 67-68 Fastback/sport roof BB car, maybe a 69-70 Mach-1 351c or 428scj would all be cool cars to own {I like the 66-67 Fairlane GTA/BB much more thou}... I can't stand the notchbacks or Fox body cars of any year or anything from 71-2003 in the Mustang, but have owned many of those years of Camaros & Trans Ams, they were the only real performance cars from those later years IMHFO anyway, unless your a Vette guy {I have owned a few 62 tube cahssis racecar, 65 396 425hp great cruiser, 68 427 390hp, 70 454 all BB cars}, which I'm really not into gold chains & silk shirts, like most that crowd is...LOL... The Mustang guys were kind of squirrelly dudes, loved blowing them away, they were a strange crowd at-least where I was....

            Just about everyone on this board has sold a car and regretted it later. I've done it a few times over the years. The worst mistake I made was selling a 67 Z28 Camaro back in the early 70s. Back then we didn't think that Z28 was any big deal. My wife was using it for a daily driver. I got tired of constantly fixing it and after our daughter was born we sold it for a few K and bought a more practical family car. Little did we realize that the rarity of this car (only 500+ were built in 67) would drive the price through the roof. Nice examples are rarely for sale and when they are they usually sell for 100K+. Like to have that car back. Live and learn.

                  I would take a Mustang over a Camaro [I hate the retro ones] just plain ugly [jmo]. I'm an all around car lover [not a car bigot] I have owned many brands and my wish list is littered with different makes/models, BUT I prefer Mopars. My and my wife's favorite modern muscle car is a 392 Challenger [she carries a picture in her wallet]!!!!!
