Default Mustang 3.8L V6

Had some fun with a late 90'* Mustang V6 convertible on the hwy last night. Some woman and her daughter...musta thought they were to big and important in their wimpy Mustang. She was ridin my tail for a quite a while in rush hour traffic (lots of volume but moving), I was in the left lane and moved to the right to allow them to pass. She chose not to....whatever move I made...she was staying behind me

Finally after tryin to let her pass about 3 times....she FINALLY got into the middle lane and had this sneer on her face. And her daughter looks over. She decided to punch it...in traffic...stupid stupid stupid. She didnt get to far...we both moved into the clearer Collector lanes...neck and neck, about 100 kph, well, I had enough of daughter staring at my car ....and opened up the 4.0 on em....it was over...she tried...sorry ladies...eat V8 :P

Jousting is fun...it makes the drive home more interesting

the 94-98 v6s are rated at 145-150hp. the 99-03s are like 192 or something retarded like that. it is a waste of the name IMO. but, they do have good high speed acceleration, like from 100 until they're done at 118. thats mph by the way
my friend ran his 00 v6 at the track once, get ready for this one: [email protected] mph

Ryan, you're damn right. I'm NOT a mustang enthusiast, but I have to agree that the V6'* may destroy the reputation the Mustang had, and might have had in the future. Too damn many of them, and they're all under-achievers.

Chicks in Mustangs.

3.8 Mustang should be renamed the Slowstang.
