Set your aim a little higher like a 2003 Cobra OOOORRRRR a 351SC Saleen. I like to see someone say a 500+HP Saleen can't do shit.

Most of the people that hate on stangs are the people who drive little rice rockets. They are jealous because their little four cylinder engines can never amount to what a V8 can.

This is a rather generic thread. The same can be said about almost every kind of car. Y'all don't particularly like my choice in cars, but I guarantee when a rice burner pulls up next to you and hit the fart pipe, I know that you want to get out of the car, rip him out of the car through the window, and learn him real good what a true performance car is. That said, there will always be other's out there that don't agree with your tastes. That's what makes competition so great.

Ok, first off I own a 92 Civic with a GSR swap. I have beaten a few Mustangs, from a roll and a stop. My brother owns a 99 GT and I have taken him 3 out of 4 times. Not by much. Then there are other Mustangs that can roast me. It's all fun. Anyway, my opinion is the Mustang is like the measuring stick. They are very popular and take well to mods. Right out of the box they perform good and aren't that expensive (relatively speaking). That's why when someone builds up a car or buys something else they always say "it'll beat a GT" or " almost as quick as a V6 Mustang". Most people know how they perform and use them to compare thier rides.

Most people hate Ford because of their experience with the company. Whether it be problems, or the attitudes of their employees. I've seen quite a few of them be real assholes over minor things. And so they hate the Mustang naturally because it comes from Ford. NOT to say any other company doesn't have assholes or problems in their cars from the factory, but just generally everyone seems to complain about Ford more.

Saleens are awesome, I've seen this really sweet Roush Mustang before. Had some crazy lookin triangular shaped exhaust pipes on the side in front of the tire. That was pretty damn cool. But as for something like a GT or a V6, it just don't feel as powerful as say a, Trans Am or a Z28.

:badass: I just did't like what ford did when they put things smaller than a V8 under the hood. This is suppose to be ford's fast car right?. Anything Cobra or higher can do alot but I just see to many of these little 3.8s driving around my town. Granted they have done some things to it but I think in the legend of the mustang it should be equiped with nothing but the best. My philosophy is If you want to make a car that looks fast it better be fast.

I was mad at the 2.4 mustang. And the mustang II. Other than that, I like mustangs, for formentionened reasons. I dont like some fords, alot of what ford does sometimes bugs me *3.8 with bad head gaskets* but all makers have some problems.

Yeah, my Mustang really sucks. I mean I will only have about 14k in it and it should put well over 500hp to the ground, and should be able to hold over a g on the skid pad. Yeah, Mustangs are huge peices of crap, the nerve of some people to think a mustang is cost effective muscle car.

I have a story relating to BLU CIVIC's post. My mom drives an 89' cutlass calais quad-4 and my dad has a 02' Sierra Z71. My dad was behind my mom on the way home on a 1 lane highway. My dad thought it would be funny to pass my mom leaving her in a cloud of dust, well, this didnt happen. He started to pass her and she hit the throttle, my dad was barely creeping past her at all because she was staying right there with him. She finally hit her brakes a little to let him get by. Moral of the story : V8's arent the gods of engines. I guess it also helped my mom that the guy that had it before her put a turbo on it too
