Which car is the best deal in the V6 version? I prefer coupes or 4 doors
and G6 makes the coupe but the profile of the coupe is abit annoying to me.
The Fusion only comes in the 4 door but the body looks better. The engine
in the Ford is also more advanced supposedly. The fusion looks decent from
the back with the dual exhaust. Anybody tested both cars or have opinions?
Mike, the Zephyr and Lincoln names have been inexorably linked for
many, many years. I've seen a couple of Zephyrs on the street but
haven't yet tried one out. They look really nice. What are your
impressions of your wife's car?
I don't particularly like FWD, but it is a nice all-around vehicle as far
as size, handling, power, comfort and luxury for a 27K vehicle. What
surprised me is the fuel mileage. The EPA highway rating is 28 MPG. The
fuel computer shows 33 MPG on the interstates at 75 MPH. We took it on a
320 trip and averaged 31.7, based on refills, at speeds up to 80 mph,
That would be your 'Stang, I presume. I'm an older model RWD V8
aficionado, in the form of a '63 Vette roadster. But I only drive mine
in summer weather. I'm presently suffering from major withdrawal! <lol>
My daily driver is a Bonneville, but I'll be having a close look at the
retro Mustang in the spring. It's one sweet looking ride!
I assume that would be your 'Stang which you speak of. My preference is
even older high powered RWD V8 vehicles, such as my '63 Vette. But
probably unlike your 'Stang, my Vette spends too many winter months in
the garage. I'm feeling withdrawal symptoms as we speak! *LOL*
My daily driver is a Bonneville, but I've really been eyeing up the
'Stang. I really like the retro look and I may be paying a visit to the
local Ford Dealer in the spring.
I love my '05 GTO. More powerful and quicker than the Mousetang,
comfortable, great acceleration (especially with the traction control
turned off), very decent gas mileage, and it was about the same price
as the '97 Firebird convertible that it replaced. I did install a
skip shift eliminator.
I hope the redesign in a few years is retro '66-'67, the prettiest
GTOs ever, but we will just have to see.
Well let's hope that it's retro sized as well as styled. We don't
want another round of Mustang II type interpretations of the past.
At the moment it appears that GM thinks that Opel = Cadillac Seeming
to forget that top line 1950's Cadillac's which sold well enough were
more money than a Rolls Royce.
Be proud to be American !
Quit importing old Australian and European crap and calling it new
Sorry for the rant but I want a Cadillac not an Opel, a Fairlane 500
not a Focus.
Canada and America's roads aren't paved over goat paths, they are
roads built for big, safe, fast cars.
Our cars should reflect that.
No question the GTO is quicker, it is a smaller car with a bigger engine.
However I wanted a convertible. In addition I can take a vacation, pay for
my insurance and buy all of my gas for the two years that I will own the
Mustang, with the money I saved on difference in purchase price, between the
