I was driving my new Stang GT one day when I spot what looked like a new Shelby going into a parking lot, and since there are test cars driving around Los Angeles sometimes, I thought that I would give it a look. After a quick U-turn, I caught up behind him in the parking lot, turned off the radio to listen to the exhaust...wait a minute, single muffler! No throaty rumble.... Oh no!!!!! Another V6 wannabee!!!! I parked along side the chubby middle aged man, and felt like saying what the f#*%!!!! He had the ducktail spoiler, and even had glue on letters saying SHELBY on it!!!! He admired my car, I said thanks, and I played ignorant and said "is that the new Shelby?" "No, it's just a V6" he said, but he liked the look of the new Shelby. Oh well, I thought that the wannabe V6'ers who make their cars look like GT's were bad!!!!!! This reminds me of the craze sweeping middle eastern men here in LA where they would take a Fiero, and put on a Testerossa body kit on it..... Kind of a Fierorrari!!!!!!! Stop the madness!!!:confused:

Just got my Black GT. Traded in my lovely 05 V6. I had a chance to get the GT and went for it.
There is not a huge difference between the 2 cars. I owned the V6 and now own the GT. The V6 is very close. It does not have the GT rumble, but still has a great sound to it. Also the V6 is much faster than many people give it credit for. I truly love both cars.
The V6 is lighter in the front end and feels a little more nimble on the road. It was a BLAST to drive. The GT has more push you back in the seat power. Both cars have their up side. I do not regret getting the GT. I paid MSRP and feel in the long run it will keep its value better than the V6. But V6 owners are right there with V8 owners. Be happy with the one you have and be happy for anyone else who joined the Mustang club. We are all on the same team. Ford really hit a home run with both of these cars. I truly wish I could have kept both of them.
