Yep I think I will keep my Bastardized 350 and hope it blows sky high to keep the percentages up ...
This post made me chuckle! Makes no sense. Have another buddy.I have excellent taste in things(lol right?), others that also have great taste know what I mean. So i can say with utmost confidence that obviously the gt350 is in a completely different league than the Mach 1. Looks, sound, and performance-feel all go unanimously to the gt350. What else is there to judge a hotrod by except for those three things?
The Mach 1 is literally a gt with shelby parts on it, they should have called it a GT-R instead of sullying the Mach name. Actually saw one today, i recognized it from afar as being a Mach 1 and not a gt cause it had stickers. As i approached, it struck me as unremarkable, and the driver furiously vaping out the window didnt help. Sounded like a gt with a borla cat back, a sound I know well since I owned one.
The reality is they simply would not have put SO many stickers and those HUGE gt500 exhaust tips if they werent needed to give owners a feeling of "hey this isnt just a gt." But it unfortunately is.
Admittedly, Mach 1 owners had/have no other purchase option since they cancelled the gt350 and with no other choice then yes it was/is the top purchase option in terms of new, high-performance oriented, warranteed, stick-shift mustangs...so I understand why people buy it. But I'd bet the farm that if they made the Mach 1 AND continued with the gt350 then people would be buying the gt350 90% of the time, obviously, no contest.
LOL this has been going on for almost 2 years... so many people would rather look for as many reasons as they can to put the Mach down, rather than acknowledge that it's a very capable car.it was 18, I think some people may have deleted lol.
you know I am glad Mach 1 gets all this criticism, everyone hates the hot new girl in town.
I love pizza too, but steak is way better.Any Pizza I’d have IMHO really would be better than steak. I LOVE pizza.
I agree with the sentiment "war on customers".SNIP
Ford will almost certainly continue their war on customers by choking supply numbers of the Darkhorse allowing dealers to continue the asinine markups. I'm betting after the initial models hit, the car is still more toward $75k+.
Engine and brakes are the main differences. Oh, and styling. GT350 gets the cool hood and fender vents whereas Mach 1 gets a plastic lip around the fender.Really, the engine is the only thing that sets them apart. Some like Voodoo more, some like Coyote more. Otherwise they are very comparable. With historical names and badges too. Why not leave it at that?
The Mach 1 is a great car. As is the base GT. There's nothing wrong with them at all.LOL this has been going on for almost 2 years... so many people would rather look for as many reasons as they can to put the Mach down, rather than acknowledge that it's a very capable car.
I honestly like them both… they’re both gorgeous cars to me, I’m just prejudiced to a small extent.LOL this has been going on for almost 2 years... so many people would rather look for as many reasons as they can to put the Mach down, rather than acknowledge that it's a very capable car.
