Wow! How can a thread about V6 hate create so much traffic? Me, I just show up at car shows, compete against GT's, and sometimes Bullitt's, Mach 1's and even a Roush once. Some get an attitude about my car being a 6, but most of the time I take home a trophy. That usually shuts them up. Somebody's always going to be faster at the track no matter what you have.

Heat

This cracks me up!!! I have owned 2 - V6 in the last 2 years... The guys at work always pitched me **** about my V6. The one dude drives two beat up fords, a bronco II with a V6 and a Ford Ranger with a V6... One day in front of a customer I had to go off on him!!!

I was ok with the V6 cause I could not afford to drive a GT but I did some research, the gas milage is not that bad, my insurance was only going to go up $41 every 6 months, and little did I know you can actually buy one for 1k less then MSRP.

I stopped off at a dealer her locally to check out the new grabber orange GT and drove it, fell in love. However I did not want auto or the Shaker 1000 so I opted to pick up my 06 White GT. I am glad I did, its a totally different experience.

Depends... they have the same AC don't they?

PS. When I moved to the US in -96 I knew what university I was attending and that I was getting a 5.0 vert... took me until after it was stolen to realize I prefer AC... had the top down less than 10 times in four years, in Daytona Beach!!

Verts aren't all that they are ment to be, rather have a roadster with a removeable hard top like my '68 Vette Not knocking Verts but to many issues to deal with.....

I'm just still pissed about how Infiniti's V6 engine can create about the same power as a Ford V8 engine.....

Yeah I mean, how do I take the heat? Exactly the same way Mustang GT guys handle the fact that Infiniti's V6 produces about the same power as the Ford V8's.

Come on over to Orange Glen tonight. We're doing the Homecoming thing. There was supposed to be nine of us but one of the guys couldn't get off work. Know anybody with a vert who can stand in? We'll be having dinner at Dalton's around 5:30.

I reckon since there aren't any 5.7Ls running around, we've gotta' form a circular firing squad.

We take the heat about as well as y'all did when the LS-X F-bodys were running around.

Woe to him who builds his palace by unrighteousness,his upper rooms by injustice,making his countrymen work for nothing...Does it make you a king to have more and more cedar?Did not your father have food and drink?He did what was right and just,so all went well with him. He defended the cause of the poor and needy,and so all went well...But your eyes and your heart are set only on dishonest gain,on shedding innocent blood and on oppression and extortion.
