I made an account on the site after lurking for a while and reading through this thread specifically.
I'm one of the "millenials," I suppose, being 24. If I had my way, I'd be behind the wheel a GT with that nice 5.0 V8; however, I'm opting for either the V6 or the Ecoboost for now, with price being the determining factor. After I'm done with school and off into the real world, I'm moving up to the GT for sure. There's nothing like the sound of a V8 opening up, plain and simple.
