Because the Chevrolet SS pretty much begs for comparisons to these two competitors I have copied a chart below. If anyone has any of the missing specs let me know. Any thoughts? Obviously since this is an SS forum I expect somewhat of a bias, but is anyone a bigger fan of the 300 or SHO over the SS?

The ford has a east west on the engine meaning its front wheel drive with a rear axle slipped in that barely gets any power and handles like a front drive. It may have a hipo engine but it still drives the fronts not my cup of tea.

On the spare tire front forget it was not available to be ordered when my ss order was placed. For weight reasons don't look to see this happening gas EPA ratings.

i know i'll order it without a spare, i rarely get a nail in my tires, never got a flat.
a tire patch kit will do just fine with a mini air compressor
