How advanced of them to do this... a 5.0 Liter Mustang? Oh wait, you mean like my 1991 Mustang LX was?

It sounds so great to go up to 5.0 liters, but not when you think that 15 years ago they were already there, and then made it smaller in the next model.

I found $80 in my jeans pocket. The kid in me said "buy nerf guns and candy!" But then the adult in me said "buy vodka, nerf guns and candy!"

Woot! So I can go back to using my ages-old term "5-point-SLOW" right?

Honestly, I hope this is accurate for Ford's sake.
The Mustang GT is sure gonna need a power boost when the Camaro hits the streets in the spring.

5.0 used to be a big deal to the Mustang crowd. When Ford threw in the 4.6 the Ford fanatics moaned and groaned to no end.

The 5.0 will give them something to be happy about, 400hp and better mileage. I like the idea that there could be a HP and a fuel mileage war happening simultaneously.
