There is a lot more to see than those places! I'd bet a ton of quid that you will absolutely love Seattle in the summer time. Nice & cool & still rains all of the time to give you a nice reminder of good ole jolly England.

Thankfully you didn't stay a huge fan of GM (IE Firebird from Knight Rider) or you wouldn't have appreciated your Mustang as much as you do today! I too watched Knight Rider A LOT growing up and although I never got into cars, I've always appreciated them.

I think Euro cars are a class of their own but imported Euro & Japanese cars here lack the raw HP & loudness that Americans are known for I think. I'm confident that the perception by people outside of the US see us as a nation that likes to butt it's way around quite a bit & I think that bleeds over into domestic auto manufacturing. Euro styling is just so pretty & fragile that you can look great seeing the car's appearance, but it just doesn't rumble and can't be heard from miles away like the good ole American Muscle.

Sadly my ole lady wants a BMW & I just cannot shake her from that.

BMW are ok but remind me of sitting on an old park bench. What about a mercedes? Much more refined. Euro cars are ok as you say but the styling of the mustang, corvette, camaro, challenger way overpower the looks of a Honda!! Haha an like you say the rumble and the looks just does it. American cars are also soooo rare here. So it really stands out!!

Well I did have quite a few trans and after watching knight rider. I think the only thing that could sway me from the Bullitt is a camaro 2ss or a newer stang

I've said it before and I'll say it again, the ONLY Mercedes I would think about purchasing is the McLaren. Mercedes just reminds me of an old person in motion (kind of like the people who invest in Corvettes here ) and being a 30 year old man, I just don't see the point in owning one. I'm a bigger fan of classic lines & a throaty V8 sound, I want you to see me flying by as you're hearing my motor revving with throaty madness. Simply put, I just do not hear that from Euro or Japanese cars, period.

Your's can sound better if you're able to modify the headers & exhaust. I'd bet serious quid on that.

This is why you need another Mustang GT so you're able to modify it. What you have there is a collector's item not meant to be used as a daily driver. Now if you could get a GT that you could dump an obscene amount of modifications into, that could potentially round off your mustang experience.
