......no need to downshift when you're already doing 3800 rpm in third gear at 70mph and a modern 392 Charger SRT pulls up beside. Zipped it up to 130 mph and he's way behind. A Charger Hellcat would've been different.....
Still, We gave each other thumbs up and smiles when he caught up.
I swear, just driving my Cougar around here has probably given people more joy than all the good things I've tried to do in my life. Almost every time I drive this old machine people are yelling at me out their windows, getting out of their cars at stoplights to come talk to me, thumbs up, smiles, and open-mouth looks. When I drive this old FE with 3-1/2" exhaust by dogs in their yard, they usually go freaking apeshit. They bark at this car like it's some giant animal invading their territory. Damn it's fun.
Go drive your FE.
