By the way, I'm sure there's someone out there wondering, "How does my build get featured?" Share a cool build of a cool car, and you might be the next one.

You guys are posting some really cool builds. This is just another way that we're shining the spotlight back on you.

Thanks for making this community so awesome.

That was the first generation of V6 Mustang that didn't totally suck. Surprisingly, though, i think the 05-09 generation of v6 gets even less enthusiasm vs its actual performance.

To paraphrase an old Porsche truism: "Race the car you have...not the car you wish you had."

My 94 was an appliance that looked sporty.

Yes, the s197 seems to get a bad rap, but everything from a spec standpoint looks competitive with other 6-cylinder tourers of the time. Not sure what it's like to drive, but I've had my eye on a few since I'll be needing a new DD pretty soon.

I'm not sure how much fun 05 and up were to drive but I believe they were successful SCCA showroom stock racers.
