two years ago i bought my truck. i paid like 7 grand for a sunday driver ranger. its completely paid off. why did i do this? did i really want a truck? no, i needed it. i needed it for the insurance costs, functionality, and rugged nature. last year i bought this: thats why i got the truck. it was a plan to eventually get a project and be in a position to take full advantage of it. due to my proper planning (and blessed life) i've been able to get it to this status: i say that to say this. perhaps if you had plan better (and/or plan better in the future) you won't have to settle for ALMOSt there. the V6 is a VERY nice car, dont get me wrong. i like it a lot and i see the appeal it has but obviously in your case you wanted the GT. the dreams to be realized belong to those bold enough to act. in some cases "acting" is really just waiting and planning. or you could just enjoy your nice car and not care what us stick in the muds think.
