agree'd. most donni car on the planet. rather drive a station wagon.
thats just my opinion
you arent understanding the concept of the pony car my friend. Torque + attractive looks + reliability + appeal + inexpense. Sure your moms acura grocery getter may come with a 250 hp v6, but horsepower sells cars and torque wins races. You have to inspect the power curve across the rpm range. The mustang 5.0 makes tons of power under the curve, this gives it alot of grunt off idle to about 5300 rpms, this is your fun factor. alot of people poke fun at supras because they have a shitty peaky powerband and only run well at high speed/rpm. Torquey V8s give that neck snapping kick around town, we arent no fast n the furious douchebags who cruise the highway at 150kph waiting for someone to "roll race" with. Real cars race from a dig, and thats where powerband comes into play. http://img239.imageshack.us/img239/2495/213445np.jpg
Also, try finding a used supra for under 10 grand. Mustangs have always had the bang for your buck factor, and thats why they are so successful. And just to clarify.. 300 GOOD rwhp is a good number for the street, want more? Stroke your block out to a 347 and play around with 380 horses naturally aspirated, or throw on a vortech and tune for the 400s. More yet? Start kicking in the money... dart block stroked with forged internals, kenne bell blower/turbo setup, 800-1000 horsepower (mind you, it will still be alot cheaper than a new vette). I could go on for awhile on this topic.. but I just remembered im on newschoolers right now not the corral ;) Imports are cool too if thats your thing, but you just cant argue with physics.
