for real guys, i'm sorry if i offended you. i didn't think i came off as that much of an a$$. peace out, and remember, FORD POWER!
I dont think you disrespected me in any way. I just wanted to let you know that I didnt have any problems with mustangs and that I dont think that I could beat them left and right. I just wanted to make sure all you guys didnt think I was just some teenager that comes on here and thinks that I know more than all you guys. I know the "ol' tymers" know what they are talkin about, hell, I dont know a single person that knows as much about cars as my dad does, I am lucky that I have him around to help me out when I have stupid questions. Im just a kid that is trying to learn as much as possible about cars and have fun in the process, so that when I have kids of my own I can teach them just like my Dad has taught me. I plan on going to Wyotech and learning as much as possible. Im a car guy, through and through, no matter what kind..... When you go in my room, car posters..... on my phone, car pictures..... my garage, car parts .

The Machs had the dohc but the Bullitts have the sohc GT engine with a bullitt intake. 265 hp oppose to 260hp the regular gt has. Also the Mach's and Bullitts have no blower, the only Mustang with a supercharger as of now are the 03-04 Cobra's, soon to be the new GT-500 also.

Also some Roush and Saleens come supercharged even the 2005 Saleens I think they are faster than 03-04 Cobras but not sure

Im still trying to figure out where I said that I think that mustang owners are high and mighty.
Look I dont know why you are acting like this...and frankly I dont care anymore. My best friend has a 94 Mustang GT (the last year they made 5.0s) and I love it when he gives me an oppurtunity to drive it. Im particullarly excited to get to drive it after he gets the new gears and supercharger that he is going to put on it. But I digress, I never made a statement about any particular car, merely used broad examples to try to get my point across (Which obviously I didnt). I replied because I was insulted by your comment about young kids who parents buy them these cars...as if every person on this forum under the age of 20 had this car handed to them on a silver platter, with a years worth of prepaid insurance. I dont like being stereotyped...as Im sure you dont either. So show some respect. I love cars. I dont go around acting like my car is the shit...because it is far from it. I bought this car because now that I am in the Navy...and have money...I can finally treat myself to a decent car, not fast, or super high performance,but a fun to drive car with power locks and windows, and that little remote keychain, and leather seats. Because until this point all I had had was a 79 El Camino, which I loved, but face the facts its an old car and not the most practical, and a 94 saturn SC1 with power nothing and an odometer that was well over 200k miles. So I dont drive this car around like its the greatest car on earth..cause its not. Never have I said that...and never will I. Which is where I dont understand you going off about spoiled brats whose parents buy them shit.

Im done guys...I promise...If youd like to continue this conversation...keep it to PMs. I would really like you to enlighten me as to where you are coming from...

Your buddy has a nice Stang... I particularily like the colour of it for some reason!! Not sure if you made a typo though, but 95 was the last year of the 5.0 in the Mustang.

Yeah I love his color...its actually a bit more red in person. Real purdy when he gives it a good wax. And get this...he got that thing with 28k miles on it...and Ill tell you its in PERFECT condition. Kept in a garage its whole life. Oh yeah and the best part...he got it off ebay for about 8k dollars. Talk about a find.

Oh and as for it being a 94....Im just going off what he told me. He knows a fair share about mustangs and Im pretty sure he said that was the last model year they made the 5.0 GT. I however do not know that much about mustangs. I could easily be very wrong on that.
