"I could care less what type of post you like to see. The Mustang outsold the F bodies, will far outsell the Holden Heap and will probably be around when the replacement F-bodies again fade from the theater due to low sales volumes yet again." And the GTO and Camaro will perform better than the Mustang. And the GTO isn't even a performance vehicle. Keep on bragging about your huge sales. Sales and styling must be what you care about. If your top criteria was performance, you would obviously prefer a GTO, even though it is the 2 door version of an Australian family car. Feel the might of GM. They can release a family car from an car company out in the middle of nowhere to the American people, and beat the Mustang in performance. That is because they are one of the premiere engine companies in the world (along with companies such as Honda, Mazda, BMW, and Daimler-Benz) whereas Ford is a B quality engine company (unless you include their Mazda division.) See GM and now Chrysler went back to what they know--huge displacement, highly compact and efficient, pushrod engines. Mazda has their rotaries. Honda has their high revving capabilities. BMW has their inlines... The point is, all these companies come out with original engine designs... Ford tries to COPY Japanse ideology whereas GM and now Chrysler (who recently went back to the drawing board) figured out how to make more technologically efficient, American-style pushrod engines. Ford OTOH will always be a B-quality engine company until they stop copying other designs and innovations and come up with their own. (Even their "new" three-valve set up is a rip-off of Mercedes...) They need something original about their engines so that they will develop a passion. Until then, your Muscle cars will have the least unique and worst performing engines out of the Americans... Wait a second... I take that back.. I just noticed that Ford is the only company to make super-charged, high displacement engines... I am willing to bet that the Mustang SVT will be a Hell of a vehicle. But you Mustang GT guys will still be getting beat by the 2 door GM family car known is Australia as the Holden Monaro. I don't care.. I realized after posting here that the Mustang is a really immature car that will be filling up high school parking lots in no time... Hell, the car will be selling for $16-17K new (V6 version) in a few years. It will have a stigma associated with it that I don't want. You guys don't mind the stigma. Enjoy your Mustang.
