how about this question as a follow-up! Why is the V8 called a GT, and the V6 called...well, just a V6? How come we can't get two names too!?
Didn't the V6s have an "LX" designation, at least in the 80s and 90s? Or did that stand for something else?

You can't get two names because we only have one. No GT owner calls their car a V8 GT.[X(]OK, I'll give you a two namer. Six Banger. There. End of story.

I prefer "cost effective".

That's one way to look at it. Cheaper on gas, cheaper on insurance, cheaper sticker, etc. I wasn't looking for economy when we got the GT, but we were pleasantly surprised with the 27 mpg that we are currently getting. My old 67 only got 16 mpg. I had it jetted way down so that it would run at 10,200' and even then, it ran rich.
