This is more due to the fact that historically mustang and camaro owners drive around on high performance all seasons, or summers, and wonder why their cars suck. (Or they drive an old mustang with bald tires.) My friends 2008 GT/CS mustang is better in the snow on blizzaks than either of my Foci were with the same blizzaks.

Assuming you are basing this on most dumb mustang owners? Heavier car with 2 wheels pushing it, vs a Focus with 1 wheel pulling it?
