2011 Mustang + question about V6

Just was thinking, Will it be the same once the 2011 V6 comes available. Will people still say why did you buy the V6 mustang, instead of the GT. When the 2011 V6 will be pushing about the same hp as The 05-10 GT. People will still asked Why you buy the V6 ? What do you guys think ?


Stock for now. Two GT take off muffler, connected to a GT H-pipe.Upgrade instrument cluster. Shorty antenna. GT rear bumper. GT side skirts. GT front and rear sway bars. So many GT parts, and still a V6 engine. Damn. 18 inch Deep Dish Black rims, with polish lip. 255 front, 275 rear, soon changed to 285.

Just tell 'em to shut the hell up. Get what you want and are happy with. I think the new V6 will be pretty impressive. People will want the GT just becuase they can get it, not becuase they need the power or will be able to handle it.

I'll admit, I am eyeing the GT, but the V6 is respectable too.

My mods? I'll tell you once we cross the finish line.

Sure wouldn't worry about it. Cheaper inital cost, lower insurance, cheaper to run. Ask them GT owners who knock the V-6 why they didn't get a GT-500!

+1) The current V6 already has more HP than the older V8 Mustangs.
That didn't stop the bashing.

People will always bust balls.

Most people love the grabber blue I have, but a lot of young guys, mainly teens and early 20's think it's a chicks color.

I don't care, I dig it. I love it. I didn't but the car to impress other people. Love your V6 Mustang...It's still a pony car!
