Ok, alot of people have asked me, "Why do you hate on the V8s? We respect you 6ers." Well, I had the perfect example happen to me today. I was driving down the road minding my own business when a black 03 Cobra coupe turns off of a side road and gets behind me. I'm not paying him any mind, I just keep trucking along minding my own. Well, I come to the stop sign at the end of the street and as I roll up and stop, I hear the Cobra rev at me from behind. Now, I NEVER rev at Stangers b/c, no matter what people say, no one revs to say "Hello.", they rev to say "look what I got..your car is crap." BUT, in this case, I figured I'd give the benefit of the doubt and rev back. So, I slap it in neutral and give a rev. As the sound of my exhaust dies down, I can hear the guys in the Cobra laughing their a$$ off. I'm thinking, "Typical V8 owner." So, I cruise through the stop sign. Well, a truck turns onto the road behind me, so now the Cobra is a car back. We all three come to a red light and as I stop, I can hear the Cobra revving from a car length back. My friend who was with me looks at me and says, "Geez, some people need to grow up." I told him that "according to the V8 guys on Stangnet, V8 owners don't have egos or pick on V6 Stangs." So, when the light goes green, I go across the intersection. The truck behind me turns left and as soon as he does, the Cobra starts riding my back bumper...mind you this is a four lane road, with two lanes going the same direction and no car in the lane beside me. The guy rides my bumper for about a mile until I turn. Then, as I'm turning, he floors it past me in the slow lane. A very nice ricer-esque flyby from someone in a $38k car....no, I guess that doesn't mean the guy has an ego. At any rate, I'm rolling in front of some stores in the little strip center I'm in and out of an alley that's between two of the stores comes that same dang Cobra. As I roll past, I hear "V6s are $hit! Hahaha...." By now, I'm thoroughly annoyed, but, I was willing to leave it at that so I proceed to park in front of the store i was going into. Well, before me and my friend can even get out here comes the dang Cobra AGAIN. Ok, so he's already revved at me about 10 times, done a flyby, and screamed out an insult like a 12 year old kid...and he still doesn't think he's made his point. So, he stops in front of my car and his passenger says, "Hey, you have a V6 man." Wow, I'm glad he told me b/c otherwise, I would not have known that. So I pointed out to him that there is a 3.8 emblem on the rear decklid and I'm running the horses on the side. To which he replied, "You have a V6...V6s are $hit." I'm beginning to think that that is the extent of a V8 owners vocabulary. Now, in another thread on here, DBMStang said that I would never "call a V8 driver an a$$hole to his face." So, I decided to pull this guys punk card. I told him hey, your dad has a Cobra...real impressive. Guess you couldn't afford the Saleen huh? His reply, "I can beat your V6." By this point, I was beginning to feel like the whole situation was just so childish and stupid that I was going to just let it go. So I told him that, even though his dad's car could kick my car's a$$, I could DEFINITLY kick his a$$ and if he didn't believe me, to please get out of his car so I could prove it. Anyone can talk trash while behind the wheel of a fast car that can get your a$$ out of there once you see you're gonna catch a beating. If you're any kind of a man, you would get out and settle the problem. But no, he did the typical V8 thing, shouting "Your car sux" as he drove away. Now, the V8 guys on here are gonna say this is a case that is the exception not the rule, but i get this crap all the time. I'm sick of owning the Stang because of it. If I had a Camaro SS, that guy would have never started anything. That's the way the mind of a V8 owner works....why start trouble with someone who has a chance when you could talk trash to someone who knows they have no chance. It's funny and sad though, because I have had guys with WS-6 Trans Ams come up to me and say, "Nice car man..what's under the hood?" and be completely cool about it. I have NEVER had a fellow Stanger come up and say anything positive. It's either "V6s are $hit." or "You don't have Euro tails? That's dumb...." I don't build my cars to get the approval of others, I could care less about what anyone thinks...but if you think negatively about something, why mention it? If I see a car I think is ugly, I'm not going to start harassing the driver and shouting to him that his car is crap. Everyone has their own thing. But the V8 Stangers have no respect for any V6, no matter how well done it is. I'm only posting this thread because alot of people have asked me why it is I hate V8s so much....this kind of crap is the reason why. This post is NOT a personal attack on anyone. I'm simply answering the question.
