    I LOVE muscle cars. I was glad to see that Ford remembered why folks bought Mustangs in the first place. The Mustang (and its derivatives) is a muscle car and not a family sedan (or coupe).

    Bluntly, I find muscle cars ridiculous in todays driving. They sit in traffic using buku fuel, going excactly as fast as a three cylinder Geo.

    Now I like fast cas, and have built a few engines for fun. But it is no fun sitting in stalled traffic with a built engine tearing itself up in a lumpy idle.

    Best to build a car like that for exclusive use on a race track.

    And most American muscle cars handle like shit.

    Ah the joys of rural living...four traffic lights within the 5000 square miles area around my house. :woohoo:

    Funny how Rocks can't even imagine any sort of world outside the one immediately surrounding him where that car would be desirable.

    Muscle all the way. My first car was an '86 Buick Grand National. Loved that car.
