Ok here's my rant. Hemi? Now how in the world could could i put Hemi and Mustang in the same sentence. Think back 4-5 years ago and this commercial came on with two guys in duster pulling up to a stoplight. A nice shiny black ram pulls up next to it and they look over and go WOW does that thing got a Hemi?!?!?!?!?!?!?! I remember thinking oh cool they brought the Hemi back, sweet. But then more commericals came out, and I remember telling my friends, you watch there gonna drop that damn Hemi in everything under the sun and play it out. Sadly they did, Hemi V6 PT cruiser? no thanks, Hemi Jeep? No thanks. So that brings me to where I'm at today as I look at the main page and see yet ANOTHER special edition stang. I think they have taken the S197 body style over the edge with all these damn variations. GT, GTR, GTKR, Roush,1, or 2 or 3 or Shelby 350, 500, Saleen, Bullitt, ETC... And anything else i may have missed. I think it takes away from being special edition when theres 20 different kinds of special edition.

This in no way is a knock to anyone with a S197 at all, I like em, just a personal opinion.

Rant Over :D

You also have to realize that almost all motors are hemis now. Back then it was something special, now its standard. So they brought the name back. Thats it.
I know, its just a lil rant :D 7mm, its more like 4.5 :)
How many of any of those "special" addition stangs do you ever see? Not a whole heck of alot.
Come to the Puget Sound area in WA and you will see ALOT of them.
they keep making them because YOU keep buying them :crazy
I know this man, LOL They keep making more b/c they sell, its good business. But for ME, personally i think its too many "special editions". Just personal opinion, its not a knock against anyone or thier cars. THe nice thing about oipinons is you are free to disagree and think im a retard. And im ok with that. :D
i meant that in general; not YOU personally :lol
Its all good. Just trying to spark some banter and talk on here other than what gears are better threads and threads asking if i put lowerering springs on my car will it lower it. HA HA
I think they should just make the mustang nicer in general so there doesnt need to be so many special editions. Put a real engine in it, get rid of the gay fake plastic scoops, put decent suspension on it.
HOLY ****!!!!!! i agree 100% I think the V6 offering makes that hard to do. Ford has gotten away with doing very little to these cars and still selling the piss out of them. NO OFFENSE TO V6 OWNERS!!

Oh BTW, im puttin 4:10's in my car, it hurt my feelings when you called me a pussy so im gonna man up. :D
