That is not my car in the photo so you can stop your whining (yet again).

Ah, so it was gratuitous pictures of someone else's barge. That's so totally different. My bad.

Nobody's whining, just made an observation is all. So quit your whinin' about whinin'.

You've made that same "observation" about 5 times now. I call it whining. If you don't want to see the photos I post, don't look at them! But accept the fact that some people (those with good taste) enjoy seeing photos of classic cars, like the one I posted. And two pictures is not "bombarding."

BTW, better a barge than an egg-shaped econobox!

I cannot believe we are still putting solid rear axles in cars, sports cars at that.

Well, it's cheaper, it appeals to the sensibilities of Mustang fans (you should hear the complaints about the IRS on the previous Cobras), and Ford manages to make it work. But one has to imagine the solid rear axle accounts for a lot of the difference in handling finesse (or lack thereof) between the Mustang and the M3, or the entire 3-series lineup for that matter.

Just like leaf springs in trucks, even solid rear axles in trucks. Give me an F-350 with the tak 4 suspension off an Oshkosh over the antiquated leaf spring dana 70 setup. Glad the new Camero went with irs b/c it was a key step in allowing the car to take corners.

Don't be so hard on yourself!

The photo I posted was completely appropriate for the thread. I don't post pics of my cars any more than other members here do.

Actually, the Mustang is a pony car. Or it used to be... don't know if it is still classified as one.
