Sure you can buy a "decent" steak (Chevy) at Golden Corral and the condiments like ketchup or A1 (Intakes, Headers, Cams) are cheap too, but if you want a real premium steak (Mopar) you go to Morton's. Yes the steak at Morton's is more expensive, but you get what you pay for. Same with the condiments at Morton's like blue cheese, grilled onions, red wine sauce.
Not many people can eat at Morton's any time they want to, but we all want to be that guy who can, so we settle for Golden Corral. Same goes with muscle cars, not many of us can buy/build Mopars so we settle for Chevys.
If you want to use your steak analogy perhaps look at it like this...Hemi Cuda's, challenger's Roadrunners etc., LS6 Chevelles, COPO Camaro's, Nova's, GTO Judges etc., Shelby Mustangs, Boss Mustangs, etc. I don't feel that Chrysler was the top of the Morton Food Chain. Every Manufacturer even AMC produced Muscle Cars that deserve respect...they all built Golden Coral variety cars as well, slant 6 and 318 Cuda's and Challenger's, 6 cyl Chevelles, Camaro's, Nova's and OHC 6cyl Firebirds, 6 cyl. Mustangs and 6cy Javelin's.
I think that analogy holds a bit more water than suggesting Mopar has the market cornered on good steak.
