Who's the real boss? 2011 Ford Mustang V6 vs. 1970 Mustang Boss 302

The 1960s and early '70s are remembered by many car enthusiasts as the glory days of the American muscle car—those pavement-ripping, tire-shredding, rumbling V8-powered domestics that could blast screaming from stoplight to stoplight, as long as the road stayed straight. As you might guess, finesse really wasn't part of the formula.
Don't get me wrong: I've got nothing against muscle cars, and in fact I'm part of the generation that grew up with Pontiac GTOs and Plymouth Road Runners on the brain. But a funny thing has happened in the 40-odd years since various hot Chevrolet Camaros, Dodge Challengers, and Ford Mustangs burbled their way to the drive-in on Saturday nights and to the drag strip Sunday mornings: technology, as it tends to do, have marched on.

We just tested a V6-powered Chevrolet Camaro and Ford Mustang for the October issue of Consumer Reports magazine, and found, among other things, that both put out more horsepower than many V8s from the muscle-car era, all the while delivering faster acceleration, better cornering, and much better fuel economy.
