There is a bill before Congress to outlaw all Mustangs with less than 260 cubic inches. Any Mustangs found in possession of a six cylinder will be forced to surrender it's grill ornament and serve no less than 2 consecutive weekends at a maximum security drag event. *G*
Just remember, Mustangs are the most popular car EVER because they offer features and configurations for everyone, from drag racers with big blocks to sissies with 6 cylinders. *LOL*
sure there acceptable at shows..but they park in the Camaro lanes..*LOL*

Yeah know if the powers that be of the time (Iaccoca) didn't sell the Mustang 6 cylinder to the upper Ford brass as a small compact car we would have never gotten what followed. The evolution of the pony to stallion is part of nature. Its rare that a car company wants a road killer right out of the box like Chrysler did with the Viper. Even the Vette had a wimpy engine in the beginning.
I mean really....You don't have a nice V 8 badge on the fender or anything like that....Of course, what's worse is having you steering wheel on the wrong side of the car, that MUST be some kind of aberration...!....lol
Dang! Just when I got used to being "strange", I became a "newbie", then a "tire-kicker". Now I'm a "beginner"?.....hmmmmmm...where do I start?
Yes, those 6-cylinders are OK for the shows. For us, Mustangs are a family thing. We've got the 289 in one of our '65s, and the 200 six in the other. They've both got their places. My favorite is my red 65 coupe with the 200 and manual three-speed. It's snappy, cruises great down the Interstate, and doesn't eat a ton of gas. It's the original engine to the car (I've got the original window sticker) so yes, it's definitely a Mustang, despite any comments by V-8'ers who don't get it!
The 6 cylinder (170 or 200) is what brought the Mustang to market. My daughter's went 289,000 with a rebuild at 220,000 before a lamp post jumped out and hit it on a rainy morning in San Diego. I kept the engine and everything else that could be removed. I may again rebuild the 200 and put it in a 65 289 chassis for my grandson. I would hope it would get him thru high school and college just like his mom. Maybe by then the engine will only have 500,000 total on the block. Mustang? damn right.
