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.

hahahah awesome. I'll make a reservation at Morton's then.

Kind of Seems that way with mustangs as well-the guys who can't afford corvettes settle for mustangs.

There was a book I read recently the author said gm's were out of the box horsepower, mopars involved tuning and wrenching work and had cheap like taxi cab interior. But bottom line they also turned the fastest times out of all the cars reviewed in the book. I think the author was incomptent as well when it came to driving. Chevy biased obviously, one of those guys who didn't like what he couldn't understand.

Hmmmm

Chevy----1st to get 1:1 HP/CI at 283 with the 57 model year Fuel Injection

Chrysler---first to hit 300 HP late 1955 Full size Chrysler later to become known as the B-300, followed by the 300-B

Enter 1957 for Chrysler-----390 HP in the FI 392----nothing to scoff at--- only available in the Chrysler 300C

Enter 1958---Chrysler, Andy Granatelli drove a fresh of the showroom 300-D
to a screaming 148mph in the flying mile---in both directions.

Those "Letter Series" cars were great. (ended in 65 with the 300-L)
Had a 58 300-D growing up
Was later the owner of a 300-F with the Cross Rams and 4 bucket seats.
But as a teen---could not afford to keep it and restore it properly,.
