=93The Camaro 1LE concept is all about the track,=94 said Al Oppenheiser,
chief engineer for the Camaro. =93It=92s an all-out race car package that

"The Mustang LX is all about kicking Camaro ass and doing it for less
money," says Patrick NoOption, chief engineer for the Mustang. "Its
about delivering a low-profile, stripped down, plain-Jane, late-night
street prowler. A Mustang only the enthusiast will recognize and the
competition only after they've lost. We wanted best bang-for-buck;
this one delivers in mega-tons."
(Note: 1LE is for real, LX is not. Oh, but we can dream...)
