Well, let me tell ya...

A couple years back my '87 Monte Carlo SS bit the dust--actually, it bit a stone retaining wall, and lost. I couldn't bring myself to replace it with one of the front wheel drive V6s that Chevy now calls a Monte Carlo SS, so went looking for other options. Whadaya know, GM (Pontiac) decided to bring back the GTO. Rear wheel drive... V8... OK, it's not a Chevy, but it could work. Or so I thought, until I saw one. Ugh. Next.

Even though it's a F*rd, I did have to admit that the Mustang concept looked pretty cool. Certainly better than anything GM was coming out with. And brand loyalty can only go so far. I mean, I can't buy what they aren't making. So I wait to see how the production 'Stang turns out. Well, they do tone it down some from the concept, but it doesn't look anywhere near as much like my father's Oldsmobile as the GTO. (Actually, Dad had a '68 'Stang, and you can see a bit of it in the '05. So, cool.) But wait, there's no independent rear suspension? Not even as an option?! Excuse me, but I thought this was a pony car--the Pony car. I mean, even Dodge's station wagon has IRS, and I don't think anyone's going auto-crossing in that.

OK, don't panic, I'm sure SVT will come out with a Cobra or Bullitt or Mach-1 or something. They discontinued all the other SVT models, and they must've built the GT-R for a reason. So I'll just wait one more year. What's that? It's not going into production until '06 for the '07 model year?! Umm, this is only 2004, right? {sigh}

Ya know, speaking of that Dodge wagon, it might be cool if they made a car version...

So here I am. Hi, all! - Maestro

Actually, we're basically in the 2005 model year now. The 2006 model year is only a short step away. The 2005 Mustang is hitting the showrooms soon, followed by the 2005 300C SRT-8 and 2005 AWD platforms of the 300 and Magnum. The 2006 Charger should be making its autoshow appearance soon as well. From what I've read, the SVT Mustang should appear in the 2006 model year. Your choices are going to be staggering -- it's a great time to be a consumer.
