I think you read my reply wrong - I was kinda of agreeing with you on this - I often have the pedal to the floor on some on ramps here. I love the feeling of this car, which is why I think mine appears fine. It's never been babied - from day one it's been driven hard.

Sure, the mileage suffers - but still getting 10 MPG more then the Mustang it replaced.
