2011 Ford Mustang GT: Don't Hate 5.0 Owners, They Can't Help It
June 07, 2011
That is my public service announcement for the day. I felt compelled to write it after driving the GT home last light. You see, I wasn't more than a few feet our of our parking garage before I felt the urge to wind up our GT and lay some rubber. It does that to you, it is inescapable.
So next time you see a 5.0 all twisted up and smoking from the rear, don't look down upon the driver. They are probably a responsible driver just like you. It's the car that's the problem.
If you're prone to such antics, best to steer clear of the 5.0. If you don't, you'll be racking up exhibition of speed tickets faster than you can say "traction control off."
