    The only problem I have with Ford is they need to offer a check box for Suspension. It would be nice to pick if you want a Solid Rearend or a Independant Rear and some choices in gear ratio and spring settings. It is not like we are going to see these cars on the lot and ordered cars are going to be the norm so why not offer the buyer these choices. I like the looks of the car but for the price I would purchase a Vette again.

    purchase a vette again? the car is going to be under 40usd for the hard top and add 4k ffor the vert

    IRS would have added at least 7k to the price tag.

    but I agree with the idea of optional gear ratios a set of 4.10's off the bat would be money

    We purchased my wife a Vette used and payed $29.5k for a 2003 Z06 and that is a lot of car for the money. I like my Mustangs when the purpose was cheap transportation and cheap parts and easy to service. I will stay with the Fox but do like the looks of the new car but will never purchase. My Fox has over 150k miles and never had or has had a problem since new and reading these boards the new car has minor issues that are causing the customers major concerns.
