I just posted on another thread a response about congress stopping the mustang. I have been a mustang fan since 1965. i was 12 years old and rode my bike to the ford dealer every saturday to look at them at talk to the mechanics working to get them ready for the new buyers. I love the V8's, however i believe for the V8 Mustang to survive Ford has got to make and economical V6 available. The only way Ford can continue to justify the expense of a production line is to be able to sell enough cars in volume to keep it going. I am convinced that the slight drop in gas prices is only temporary. Our new government does not want you buying V8 cars and or paying less than $5.00 for gas. Times will change. When gas does begin to climb again next year the 4.0 V6 is not going to be what the common person is going to want as a fuel efficient car. The rating on these are only 1 mpg better than my 91 5.0. And I have friends with the V6 to know it does not get any better. Based on what i am reading from Ford and on these forums, Ford is not going to have anything available to sell as a fuel efficient Mustang. Remember the 94-97 3.8's. Those cars got 23 mpg in town and 31 0n the highway. I know because i owned two of them. I only hope the ford brass can get on board, are eles. The future of the mustang will be doomed.
