Does anyone hold any sentimental value to their stang that would stop them from trading it in for New Tech for like the new 5.0 or 5.0 Hi-Po (Boss 302)

Yup.. That's why I like my v6.. Dual exhausts and you cannot even tell it's not a GT. AHHA Bring on the ricers!

Re: is it just me....

You can't beat the low end power of a true 5.0 though...

These new cars feel tame compared to the cars in our stable. You won't see us trading up anytime soon.

Same reason I wasn't impressed with the GT500. Sure...they make more power stock for stock. It's not a raw power....more tame.

Plus, the 5.0 pushrod sound is forever etched in my mind.

When they start making the v6 sound like a 8 that's when I will be interested in one.

Re: is it just me....

And by the way these car companies can inflate or deflate thier numbers.

I know my dads 69 427 ss l36 was a lower number than what it actually made so the insurance wouldn't be so high back in those days.

I don't want a newer body style cuz i don't like them. And the money seems like a waste since i'm gonna swap the engine anyways.

they used to rate hp/tq differently back in the day its not the same as they do it today so the numbers dont compare evenly, but even with that said you are correct, they dropped number for insurance reasons

Re: is it just me....

I'm glad they came back with the 5.0, but I've been saying for years that they should bring it back. Of course my luck, I finally get my first stang and a year later they come out with the 5.0!!! Now I have to see young punks with cars that daddy got for them driving around in a V6 that can beat my V8?!? WTF!!! Still, I like my style stang, they can keep the new 5.0 in that no so nice style.

I wouldnt give up my car for a new 5.0. I enjoy my car to much and I dont plan to sell it if I dont have to. I would love to have a new GT next to it for a fun car but I wouldnt trade mine for one... plus I dont want a car payment lol.

I would not, it took me 36 years to get the one I have now. I am not about ready to trade it in now.... I have worked so hard with so many hours to get this muscle car of my childhood dreams. I would just have to finance the new one, but could not trade in my 99 GT.....

Re: is it just me....

not ridiculous. technology improves vastly.

look at computers, cell phones, etc.

i would be concerned if it wasn't more powerful than 90s v8.

I find it extremely sad that it took until 2011 to get the mustang much over 300hp in the GT...

Yea the only thing is not having a Mustang over 300HP until now is probably why they still exist.

Re: is it just me....

the 05 model should have received 350hp and the 2010 the 5.0 motor~

the v6 was fine how it was and got a good upgrade at the right time for 2011

Re: is it just me....

Let's see here... $22k for a 2011 V6? Or 22k into the mustang I have now?
I don't mean to have a biased opinion, but these newer cars with their little "eco" packages and "look at our electronically controlled EVERYTHING" really piss me off because there's almost no room for aftermarket upgrading. It seems they don't want you doing anything in your front yard anymore. I love the older cars because they have so much extra space in the engine bay to play with. Plus it seems like everything now is trying to be a foreign sports car with their raspy exhaust sounds and christmas tree light interiors.

well the new more fancy options at times can help performance as well, it might be harder to work on your own car but you can figure it out if you determined enough.
