Default Opinion on this

So i have a 2001 V6 mustang. I love the car to death. But where i work i take a TON of crap for loving the car so much and am always told i should ditch it and get a GT. But i love it like a super snake. i dont know why, i just do. i dont need to go 180 and have 300+ HP (clearly the super snake has more but... just a random number) to be happy, i just need a 5 psd mustang i can love... I mean... Admittedly, i want to make it a bit louder, and throw a few cosmetic elements on her, but im fine with the 6. Its a damn good motor. I mean i just drove 50 miles on $10 of super, she runs great and still has enough to get me to the station tomorrow to fuel up. I guess what im asking is... Anyone else out their love their v6 mustang as much as i do?

I could care less about fools that think a V8 is a must have. They are the only losers in that area. My V6 looks damn sweet, sounds f'n great, and performs amazing....then on top of all that my insurance is $50 a month for full coverage and my mpg is better than theirs.

I get many compliments from men and girls and my wife loves it too. So people who say that are either jealous, dumb, or making up for another 'short' coming they have.

You like your car? Thats the only question that matters.

I prefer my sixxer and 4cyl over my GT.

People ask why I dont drive the GT instead because it has a v8, and I just say its because I dont need the v8 to feel good about myself.

The minute you start making a car based on what someone else wants is the minute that car becomes their dream, not yours.

I agree I think the v6's are the best, I had my 95 Mustang 3.8 v6 for about a week and I love it a few modifications and I have her where I want her. I also own a 2000 Pontiac Grand Prix GTP 3800 Series II Supercharge I get 240 horsepower with 280 torque, and I think I can easly get my v6 Mustang up there with out going with a supercharge or twin turbo

I'm happy to hear you're not swayed by the talk of others. Who are they to say anything anyway. I've had my '03 GT for 10 years, and don't regret a day. Even though yours is a 6Cyl, don't let others dictate to you to change what you already love. It's all you , not anyone else.
