oh yeah. i got paid $25 once (by the dealer) to go romp on a new 08 Mustang GT
it was actually a bit of a let-down because i'd just got done beating on a 97 trans am right before it

have you tried the new 5.0 yet? it's pretty stout. the brakes - notsomuch, but it handles nice

i almost drove an SRT challenger this spring but didn't have enough of my lunch break left :(

Grass Rooster ?

From where we were (a nice high vantage point) it looked like 3 drag boats running on green/brown water

Nah, I really have no interest. Test drove a '10 and I know there's no chance I'd buy one so I don't wanna waste my time trying to find a dealer who'll let one go for a ride. (the Ford dealers here are REALLY stick-up-the-butt-ish)

Ok Set to take 22 in for some warranty work...

I'm headed to the same dealer Speedster bought his camaro from....

I've told them the whole deal on my car, and they seem to be cool with doing non powertrain warranty repairs..

I have a lug nut that's probably cross threaded and I need a new PDIM...

so we'll see if they give me the runaround when I get there.

Hoping for the best.

Tell us how it goes. They were really great to work with up front. Let's see how they do on the service side.
