    Default Periodic Table of Sports Cars --- Repost

    This deserves a repost, the link in the original is SNAFU.

    The omission of the pony cars, Camaros / Mustangs seems glaring....

    If you actually go back to original Car and Driver issues from release dates, the Pony cars were not originally developed or reviewed as sports cars, they were sporty, compact cars, could be the reason.
    A Z is beautiful from any angle, I just happen to prefer to view from the drivers' seat!

    Don't tell the Mustang, Honda, or BMW owners that. They think they are driving sportscars. According to Wikipedia, Mustangs are still pony cars, Hondas are compacts, and BMWs are classified as "executive cars."
