    Wow, the Autobahn? That's really cool! When the first generation late model Shelby GT500 came out, Ford had a commercial where an American owner brought his supercharged 5.4 to Germany not because Germany didn't have a car he liked but because the USA didn't have a speed limit he liked. I bet driving your 5.0 on the Autobahn would be a blast! What kind of gas mileage do you get on the Autobahn? 15mpg?

    When you are in Germany and fuel is sold by the liter and its like 1.70 a liter 80 is a :nice: But its hard to do it and really hard to stay off that skinny pedal.

    James- I loved that commercial! :D

    2lane- Congrats on the new car, glad to hear you get to wind it out! I have my fun with track days on a road course. ;)

    As for the Love of a vehicle, here's a great quote from "Serenity":
    Capt. Malcolm Reynolds: "Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse... but you take a boat in the air that you don't love... she'll shake you off just as sure as the turn of the worlds. Love keeps her in the air when she ought to fall down... tells you she's hurting before she keels. Makes her a home." :nice:

    Congrats! Jealous of the Autobahn; not jealous of the fuel prices. Did enjoy the old Shelby commercial; can kinda relate...
