Ok, I digress, I do have one issue with my car that "if I had noticed it during the test drive" would have been a "no way in hell am I gonna buy this car" and that is the mere fact that my car came without cruise control... THAT was something that I neglected to notice until it was too late. Aside from that minor issue, my car is exactly what I wanted.

YOUR CAR should be exactly what you want.... want a V8? GO GET ONE!

On a side note: I beat GT's every day... with MPG! Around 24 city, over 30 highway for the past 6,000 miles. I have gotten as high as 36 mph on the 55 mph backroads of Minnesota. Recently though, I will admit that when I went from Watertown to Sioux Falls and back last Saturday I only got 24 mpg highway... I was going 85-90 mph both directions and that killed my mpg, mostly because headed south I was going into a 25-30 mph headwind. Even under those circumstances you have to admit 24 mpg at 85 mph ain't that bad!

Short story: Find the car you want and buy it. Enjoy it for what it is, not what you wish it was. If your goal is to blow away Mustang GT's then buy a Hayabusa.

I was kinda drunk.... just sayin'...........
How do you get that good of mileage? I struggle to manage 17

Oh, no doubt the mach 1. 6 had no balls. The gt was fun but there's nothing like winding out a quadcam. And pulling up beside new maro ss's and the new 5.0 and edging them by a bit is way too much fun.

I agree. I recently got rid of my 2000 V6 I had for 13 years with about 166,000 miles on it and loved it. Even got a nice compliment on it from se teenager the week I let it go. I then purchased my first GT, a 2010 only because I got it at a steal and always wanted a GT for the V8 Rumble. I love it, but wish I still had my V6 too.

Anyone think it's smart to just keep what I have and twin turbo on an 4.3liter ? One on you tube is making 700rwhp










Don't believe???

I seen the video and talked to a v6 turbo owner. It's a great idea but remember you need money to build. Like around 7000-10000 to build I say but in the end a great car
