I even took off with heavy wheel spin too. In less than 1000' I had about 12 car lengths on them and they were by no means catching up.
I want my newest Bonneville to be a testament to the world what these GM 3800'* are capable of (powerful, reliable, unsurpassable).
Enough bandwidth wasted here.
The V-6 stang is a dog, I'll admit. But last I heard I drive a V-8
Regarding the Dodge Daytona and other stuff, yeah I can see that, if you want to do it, more power to ya. I prefer the look of the Mustang personally, and the rumble of a V-8, nothin can replace that, you have to admit
I guess whatever floats your boat regarding fast cars, go for it, it'* your money, your car, you're the one that gets the enjoyment out of it. Mustnags float my boat, so thats my car
I'm not here to bash GM or say that the Mustang is God'* personal car (LS1 F-body owners will tell you that about their cars though
) I'm just saying that its my personal preference, and I'm relating to you a kill story about a bonny on the free-way /shrug. I'd seriously love to meet all you guys and talk car stuff someday, I think it would be a blast. Just keep an open mind to Ford, we're all in the same boat of ricer-killing
Edit: As a side-note, I love the V6 mustang, without it this vehicle line would have gone teh way of the Camaro as well. The V6 sells most of the cars, leaving the performance options open for the GT and Cobra. Even though its a dog, its a loved dog :p
