Would You Trade a Jar Of Nickles For A Non GT?

NO! I wouldn't. I wouldn't trade any GT for the nicest and newest non GT. That's it! Love my 99, it's a riot!

I would take an Ecoboost in a heart beat. Tune, intake, exhaust and you are looking at 320+ to wheels and a solid torque curve..along with a great interior and a much improved chassis.

Although, I must say, I should be known as the "bitter-old-dude-who-hates-his-New-Edge" guy right now lol...If I could, my New Edge would be traded in for an S550 in a blink of an eye.

My cars are like my dogs. I could have another dog, but I wouldn't trade one I currently have for another.

Yes sir I would and I did. Not every situation is the same. If I could afford a weekend toy I would get a GT in a heart beat but can only afford 1 vehicle and I spend 2 hours every day in stop and go traffic. The ecoboost is still fun, looks great and practical for long daily commute.

When you can only afford 1 car per spouse and have an 80 mile commute...a New Edge GT is not practical. With that said, I cna't affod a car payment so my car is what it is and it ain't going anywhere anyway.

If I could, I would be in a 13-14 Coyote or a brand new Ecoboost S550. Wouldn't think twice about it ...all the while planning a build for my car. Our next vehicle will be a mini van so I will be driving a 2009 Malibu and the stang will finally be a weekend warrior which means I'll enjoy it more than I do now.

nope, not my thing at all. I don't mine 4 or 6 cylinder engines in my DD's at all, but when it comes to American sports & muscle cars a V8 is a must (regardless if it is faster/slower), it's a heritage thing for me.
