It’s an american classic. The Ford Mustang GT. Even better as a convertible, which is exactly what we had a chance to recently drive. With 420-horsepower and a lime green paint job, how well does the original pony car hold up in 2014?

Chrysler’s SRT sub-brand is at it again. Taking what should be run-of-the-mill, comfortable, family focused, full-size vehicles and turning them into raging speed-demons.

They fixed everything that was wrong, re-vamped the exterior, designed a new interior, and poured on a lot more horsepower. Did it work?
