Nice review other than confusing the white shifter of the GT500 with the black one in the Boss. At least he made the right decision on which is the better car. ;)
I think he's right about the "highway drone".
the drone usually never bothers me, except when i got people in the car and a conversation is going... and I'm driving in a civilized manner lol.


Zaino, I put that $hit on everything
Are you restrictor plates out? I have the 3/4's and I don't notice a drone. Then again I may have it and not notice it over the rear axle whine!

Some may call it a drone,but to me,its a 'race car' for the street,and I love the sound, going slow or going fast. Its all part of a HIGH Performance car. The plates are out and the red key installed. Brings me back to my old 70 Boss 302 days.....Only better. Enjoy the car guys!
I hear that "drone" as sweet music! One of the main reasons that I bought my Boss was the sound. Restrictor plates have been out since the day I brought it home. I only use the Track key, and never use that silver valet key.

Is anyone thinking about the mpg diff, with red key, I get 17.7 mpg, my car at miller was 7 mpg. Not actually my car, but same yr. & color.
