    Nobody will know our cars in a few more years, and I like it that way. Mustangs are rarely seen and they are a dime a dozen compared to ours.
    When I bought my Mustang I originally wanted Grabber Orange. Nobody had any, but one of the dealerships told me they had one coming in with the 2.7. I said, "you mean 3.7?", he said "No, it's a new 4-cyl Turbo". I said "You mean the 2.3 Ecoboost?", He said "No, it's a brand new engine". Didn't buy my 5.0 from him

    Trying to figure out the train of thought on that one... I'm thinking he must have gotten it confused with the newer 2.7 Ecoboost in the 15+ F150s
