Default all show and no go

My part time job while at school is delivery parts for NAPA down here in daytona. While coming back from a delivery today I saw 05 stage 1 roush mustang gt and then a previous gen grand prix gt pulled on and I guess he wanted to start something with the mustang because he immediately engaged in following him. We got stopped at a light and when it turned green the mustang took off close to WOT but he wasn't on it all the way and the GP just stayed with him then we got stopped at another little about a minute later where there was already a buick grand national waiting there... so it the three of them waiting for the light to turn green... on green the mustang and GP go WOT, I know this because the mustang spun the wheels alittle, and the GP just stayed with him for a good 10 seconds.... unfortunately the grand national didn't partake in the festivities... but to bring this long story to an end the new mustangs are all show and no go i'll stick with my corvettes thank you very much.... and my bonneville.

Roush Stage 1'* are just body stuff. No engine work. If that GP was modified, it could keep up.

O.K., if the Grand Prix was a GTP I could see it keeping up with the new Mustang GT V8. But a GP GT!? Must have been modded.
