Clearly there is a preference amongst Mustang fans for the GT and I can certainly understand why. However, speaking for myself and possibly many 05 V-6 owners and soon-to-be owners (end of Jan for me...or so they say!) here goes why I chose the 6 over the GT.... I won't be racing anyone...I outgrew that 20 years ago so 200+ hp is fine with me especially since, other than my F-150, pretty much all I've driven for 15 years have been boring, practical Honda Accord's with negative horsepower. Going from something like that to a Stang you can imagine why I find even the 6 quite alluring. I don't need to impress anyone, especially chicky-babes anymore (happily married with a wife who's just as enthused with the 05s as me)...something else I grew out of quite some time back. If you don't like my vehicle I really don't give a rat's ass; I'm buying it for me, not some drooling bug-wit ricer or room temperature-IQ bimbo. I'm far from destitute but a 6 with a real transmission (the stick...automatics are for soccer-moms) gets pretty damned good mileage and with my 100-mile a day round trip commute that's a consideration these days. In addition, insurance on a 6 is considerably less. I don't give a damn about "fog lights". They do look good but on the other hand maybe they clutter up the front end and distract from the otherwise clean lines of the car. With the exception of the additional horsepower and the GT logo (hardly unique to the Mustang..."GT" shows up on some of the most boring vehicles on the road these days...I'm surprised they haven't been slapping them on Geo Metros), the cars are essentially identical so why bother (note the word "essentially" which I included as a qualifier for those who will read this, jerk their knees and jump on me for saying the 6 and the GT ARE identical...not what I'm saying so just cool yer' jets skippy). Whatever....how do other V6 owners and would-be owners feel?
