I like my v6, but..

So, I'm at a muffler shop today having my exhaust worked on. Brought in my own parts, then the mechanic comes inside with a question.

"Hey, did you know this is just a v6?" Well, yeah, I had noticed that actually. And yes, the parts I bought are for a v6, not the SS v8.

FFS. This is my daily driver, looks amazing, drives anazing, and is a practical buy. Ive put 10,000 miles on in 4 months for work. So while I like the v8, people need to acknowledge that the v6 is a strong car in itself.

/end rant

You should have told that mechanic that the V6 has more hp per liter than the SS V8.

I would have responded back with "And it only took you how long to realize that?"

Don't feel bad the reality is The mechanic probably drives a 82 ford fairmont .99% of people who ridicule a guy for having only a 323 hp v6 don't drive anything even close to the power styling or good looks of a newer camaro .

V8? Really just an unpopular option.
