Menage a trois...
Whoops, I did it again...yeah, could not resist the 0% deal. Many hours of conversations with the wife, going back and forth about it, actually feeling a little guilty...like, how much is enough here? In the end, the justification/excuse was that this is gonna be the show car, the one I hope to keep as close to mint as possible, maybe 2K miles a year max, hand down to my son if he's ready to take care of it when I pass...
Ahh, who knows. Wifey drove it back from Richmond -- we went down there again, just like with Dixi, as it was the only place left with a Limer as far as I could tell from FordDirect -- and she had a smile on her face the whole ride. First comment when we got back home: "Wow." I did take it on about a 2 mile test drive and goosed it several times...and just like that other guy said in one of the other threads...now I know why you GTers are so puzzled by the V6 crew. It's just a totally 'nother vehicle, with a different (WAY more confident) sound, surer feel even stock, faster off the line and plain fearsome once you get up a head of steam. It is an awesome piece of machinery.
So now it's the menage a trois I've always dreamed of...
