Can I borrow that as a quote from time to time? If I had to pick one single gripe about the S197, it would be that Ford made it way too easy for folks to go to +3 sizing relative to the 17's that are entirely adequate for the car as far as function is concerned. Thread after thread about 20's in the S197 section. And the 2010's now list 19" OE wheel availability. Grrr .

I never bought a car because it would beat some other car. They only had to be "adequately quick". If I ever decide that I do need to have a car that's way stronger than anything I've already got, I'll build up some mutant hotrod-ey thing based on stuff I've got laying around.

I've always been aware of and liked Corvettes, and I've been around for the introduction of them all. Some years/generations better than others. Sort of like Mustangs, I guess.

Yeah, that makes me sort of old, but not subject to strange fantasies or in need of Vi-whatever it was you mentioned . Not so far, anyway.

Granted, mention of the S197 is not in the thread title, but if the opening post hadn't all but begged for comparisons to be made against Mustangs both earlier and later and asked about the present state of the Mustang . . .

The New Edge Mustang seemed to swoop in and hint at a new chassis trend for the Ford muscle car; the curves had changed. The impression seems to have stuck around even as classic styling resurfaces in successive bodies.

What did you think of the New Edge when it came out? Has your opinion changed? Was it a good or bad era for the Mustang? How is the present state of the Mustang stacking up?
it was almost inevitable that they would have been made anyway.

It is neither possible to compare something against itself nor decide if something is either good or bad in a vacuum.
