    Mustang vs. Mazda (my WRX is broken...)

    Long story short my WRX is in the body shop until tomorrow so I've been driving around my old Mustang for the past week. Tonight I was coming home and one of those Mazdaspeed Protege's pulls up beside me at the light. Looks stock other than the fartcan. The guy revs his engine and asks "Dude, is that like the one from Gone in 60 seconds?" I told him no, that one was a '67 and was "supposed" to be a Shelby. Then I can't believe he actually said this..."I'm sorry you have to drive something like that, that old 289 must be slow." Now it's on. When he finally (come on, I had about 8-9 car lengths) pulled up to me at the next light he had his mouth wide open. I looked over and said "Nah, the 289 is in my garage...this is a 5.0. Maybe you should trade your car in on a WRX. Later." I can't wait till next year when that 302 will turn into a 347 stroker. Let the games begin!

    Nice.
    I drove my dads 66 stang convertible all through high school (well, weekends). It had a 289 and the pony interior with the fake wood trim. My bro has it now and it is sweet.

    That is priceless. I'm amazed the kid even knew what a 289 was.
