That reminds me. Drove one of the now off-sale V6 variants of the current Mustang when I was out in the US earlier this year. I actually really enjoyed it. I'm a big fan of the GT and I've heard all the stories and preconceptions about V6 Mustangs, and this one was also automatic of all things, but it was still great fun. Sounded good, handled at least as well as the V8 (I'm sure with lighter weight up front it may even be better in some situations) and felt plenty quick. I've heard good things about those Camaro V6s too. They get a bad rap for not being the "proper" versions but they seem like pretty good cars in their own right. I think I mentioned elsewhere, but my old Panda (similar platform) was problem-free for the couple of years I owned it. Didn't spend a penny on it other than basic servicing, which is more than can be said for my MX-5s... And tyre wear, given the above When I had to ride in the back of a 991 for 25 minutes it almost crippled me for life.
