Mustangs are girl cars. Give me a hemi any day. <br>A Mustang wagon?!? Say it ain't so<br>"Brad Bowling, a Mustang expert who has written several books on the car including the Standard Catalog of Mustang, told CNNMoney.com he was not particularly bothered by the idea.<br><br>Bowling himself recently parted with one of his Mustangs, a 2001 model, because he needed something with more room, he said. He bought a Hemi-powered Dodge Magnum wagon."<br><br>oh yeah, that's going in the blog
<blockquote><font size=1>In reply to:</font><hr><p>Mustangs are girl cars.<p><hr></blockquote><p>Hey now! I have a Mustang and a Vette and both have kept up just fine with the Dodge Hemis. However I do want one of those Challengers...saweeet!<br><br><br><br>Now these Mustangs had a Hemi...<br><br><br><br>My '69 Mach 1 has a 460 Police Interceptor engine which isn't a Hemi like the Boss 429. But it is much more managable in the real world. 600 HP with an extra 150 HP NOS boost can handle just about anything. But it's temperamental. That's were Dodge has done it right by building a Hemi that can haul ass as well as haul groceries without having to retune it everytime you stomp on it.<br><br>I don't like the Camaro concept car at all. But I still think the small block Chevy V8 (283-350-400) is the most reliable, tough, cheap to hot rod engines ever built. I used to have a hot rod Monte Carlo that would scare most Viper and Porsche drivers to death. The new Vettes are insanely fast and sophisticated and IMO the only good car Chevy builds. I like Chevys but Chevrolet has lost their way.<br><br>No Hemis here either but I wouldn't mind a new Shelby GT 500...<br><br><br><br>Man I love cars!<br><br><br><br>

The more people post these types of pics, the faster it's going to drive me to the Ford Dealer this weekend...<br><br>Where does one go to look at a Shelby? Are they just at regular Ford dealers, or are there Shelby dealers as well?<br><br>Not that I'm spending 50 grand on a car, but it might be nice to scout it out in the event of a lottery win.<br><br>
My first car was a Ford and and I had a 20th Anniversary edition Mercury Cougar. I've sworn off American cars until the quality improves but, I'm sure that car is much better built (at least for it's price it better be). I love that look of that car. I would rather have one of those than cars 3X the cost.<br><br><object width="425" height="350"><param name="movie" value="http://www.youtube.com/v/FAuoOjUKk_U"></param><param name="wmode" value="transparent"></param><embed src="http://www.youtube.com/v/FAuoOjUKk_U" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" wmode="transparent" width="425" height="350"></embed></object><br><br>
I think they are built-to-order at the dealership. Although there is one at the massive Ford dealership near my house. It is reasonably priced at $37,500. Not bad for 500 HP and all the other goodies Shelby adds plus a warranty.<br><br>
<blockquote><font size=1>In reply to:</font><hr><p>I've sworn off American cars until the quality improves<p><hr></blockquote><p>Ditto! That's why I drive a Nissan Xterra as my daily driver. <br><br>American manufacturers still build great muscle cars like Mustangs, Corvettes, Chargers, GTOs, etc. I have driven most and they are as good as it gets. But it seems that the everyday cars are all junk. My wife's 02 Pontiac Bonneville has been in the shop a lot since the 75,000 mi warranty expired. <br><br>Everyone I know with a European car have had the same problems American cars have but it costs twice as much to fix. I have driven a few BMWs and Mercedes and the experience is unparelled but they are nortorious for having expensive break downs. <br><br>Japanese is the only way to go. I had a Honda Civic in the 90s before the Nissan and it went for 250,000 miles and I probably spent about $500 on it in 5 years. The Nissan is much more comfortable than my Corvette and has 265 HP which is plenty in the nasty crosstown traffic I endure everyday. Plus, Corvettes hate just sitting in 110 degree summer heat in bumper to bumper traffic, I almost fried it a couple of times. I have a 60 mile round trip everyday and gas mileage was also becoming a factor. The Xterra gets twice the gas milage the Vette did and I can use regular unleaded. The Vette, my Mustang or almost any performance car usually requires 93 octane premium or it runs like sh!t.<br><br><br><br>
