    New model Mustangs

    So I've killed two of them in the past month or so.

    The first went from a 40mph roll to 85, and it was dead even until the latter half of the race when I pulled roughly a car-length. We went again from a 20mph roll, and I ripped him up that time, pulling 2 cars on him by 60 and letting off.

    Just like I remembered them from the earlier models, they seem to catch a good gear at 40mph.

    The 2nd one was one of those body-kit decked out ones, black, and sounded mean. We went from 50-100, and I SLOWLY pulled all the way through, and had about 3/4 of a car-length on him when we had to let off due to upcoming traffic.

    I'm new here, so I don't know what you guys think about those cars, but I really like'm myself, and am proud that Ford kept them rolling of the assembly line while the idiots at GM let our F-body die.

    In the 80's and 90's I absolutely hated those cars, but now, as we find ourselves in a world surrounded by riced-out Hondas and Hyundai Tiburons, I kinda consider them allies... you know what I mean?

    Well maybe not allies, but you get the picture.

    BTW, my car's a 2000 Trans Am, A4, with Borla Catback and Y-pipe, and SLP Lid.

    Only 41,000 miles, and I only drive it on nice days, otherwise she sits in the garage. Love it!

    hm... I agree... one of my best friends has a 03 Mach1 Stang... we help each other out in everything... even IF...we do have the usual Ford vs Chevy Arguments...

    but then again, around here... Muscle needs to stick together cause there's just too much Rice on the road...


    Nice Kills Btw!...

    I wouldn't necessarily say Ally... I believe it falls under keep your friends close and your enemies closer, sort of thing...

    Ricers don't fall under either category, but lets me honest, Ford is our rival...

    I agree they are one of the few lasting American Muscle cars... But, till the end of time, they will be our competition...

    It's kind of like Alien VS. Predator, where they Predators come down, get the queen to shoot out a whole bunch of aliens, and then kill them all... We are the Predators...

    P.S. - Nice Kills...

    The new Mustangs are so generic. Every midlife crisis guy/woman has one with alll the "retro" accesories like the stripes and loovers. There so expensive too, I saw a used 05 in the paper today for $20K. A mid to high 13 second car for that much? No thanks. I can pick up a used LS1 for around $10k and spank new Mustangs all day with it.

    Oh, I agree that bang for the buck, we've got them beat hands down, but I still think they're a good looking car with a lot of tradition.

    I also love that Alien vs. Predator analogy. I guess the average people that are running around getting killed in the middle of the fight, when they have no business being there (If you have seen AVP-R, wow I lost track of how many people died in that one), they would be the representation of the ricers.
