It's interesting how tunes change (see the comments) when someone loses a bet.

Well, Bodyblue, my boy, you have officially lost. The Mustang rolled through 20K without any fanfare at all this weekend. It's still breaking its tires loose at every opportunity and doesn't give two rips about the way it's been driven over the last 20K miles. It's a durable machine, but probably no more so than most any modern car. Its tranny and clutch are fine -- they feel just as stout as they did on day one and I've experienced none (Zero. Nada. Zilch.) of the noise reported by some.

Tomorrow we'll have a little fun with all this, don't worry. Meanwhile, since I'm certain Bodyblue is a man of his word, I'll be awaiting his resignation from the Fun Police. And we expect to hear no more criticism of burnouts from him. Ever. Again.
