150-200 MPH Winds or Snow over the top of my head??????

I would go hurricanes because they last 2-3 days and maybe 4-5 if they stall, and have a small chance of hitting you every time compared to a front carrying snow.

just my 2 cents...

Did I miss something? Inurok said the 300 was faster than the GTO. I've never seen or heard that claim before.

hmmm, the 300C goes 0-60 in 6.3 sec according to chrysler, GTO does it in 4.7 sec according to pontiac. sounds pretty close...not. I think he got em mixed up accidentally.

Okay is possible I drove the GTO 5.7 not the 6.0 but its 5.7 to 5.7. but then again you can get a 300C with a 6.1 now and yes that will kill a GTO 6.0

Ok...


I have seen no evidence that any stock 300C can be faster than any stock GTO of the same year.

The quickness of your GXP is not in question here.

Mercedes Transmissions are far from bad. That'* what'* in the 300c.

The 5.7 GTO had 350 HP, the 300C had 5-10 less. The 6.1L Hemi also will cost atleast $45k.
