CTS-V or 5.0 Mustang

In the process of selling my truck and can't decide which one to get. This will replace my truck as the weekend warrior....I plan to do a bunch of mods on either one.....I can get a brand new fully loaded 5.0 for less than a used CTS-V but I think the caddy is more of a sleeper and makes more of a statement....What do you guys think?

Thanks guys, that's what I was leaning toward.....Lingerfelter has a $11K kit that should put it in the 10s and include a 2yr 24K mile warranty.

Get a supersnake

I think I would look around as to what is out for both cars, price's on parts etc.

check on both forums and see what issues the cars have with them.

Yeah I know I can go faster with the 5.0 for less money than the caddy, but.............that's what i'm struggling with....although this won't be a family vehicle, i could take the fam out in the caddy as opposed to 5.0....plus it will haul azz.....

Well to be honest, I don't know.

I can ask some of my mustang friends who run them.

All I can say to be fair to both cars without starting a war Is just find out both pros and cons, and go from there.

both badass cars to start with, so it's just boils down to which one you wanna get
