    -constantly challenged on the street by every douchebag in a pickup, old man in a caddy, and various four cylinder driving wannabee types

    -people see you rollin and they be hatin every ****ing time

    -not being able to drive the speed limit, ever! no matter how hard you try

    -righteous kills always blocked by having family in car

    -having to drive the other slow car

    -people coming up to you and saying stupid shit about Mustangs ALL THE TIME

    -if you are over 30 the judgmental attitude of your friends, family, and coworkers; "Oh man is that a mid life crisis or are you compensating for something? That thing looks expensive..." Yeah it costs a lot less than the MINIVAN that YOU roll in bitches... :rollseyes

    -everyone in your neighborhood recognizes you from a mile away cops included

    - Overall weight and weight distribution
    - Tight Piston clearance
    - Lack of creature comforts (HIDS, Factory NAV, Homelink, Memory, Heated Seats)
    - Poor traction system

    I really don't have any. I guess where I live I don't have to deal with a lot of imports trying crap. occassionally they do, but not excessive.

    I hate living here because I can't drive it year round.

    other than that, really don't have anything least favorite....well, maybe still having a lien on it. lol

    +1 on that.

    Sometime I hate the attention and then sometimes I like it.
    I hate when people hear what you have you always get the well I know someone or I am related to someone that has this and this and its such much faster.

    my youngest son said that this car no can qualify me for mid life crisis car, gotta be a convertible miata or some piece of crap like that. i can never seem to get it right, guess i'll have to skip mid life crisis and move right onto retirement. who wants to pay taxes anymore and have to come up with trillions to pay for the governments bailouts to all the greedy scumbags. count me out

    only thing I dislike about driving my vert are having to crawl over railroad crossings, and avoiding bottoming out on speedbumps and steep driveways. My car sits so freaking low....but it looks so damn good, so it's worth it!

    The only thing that really bugs me is that the interior was 9/10 yrs. old when it was new. Love the seats but the interior is old and boring...but I didn't buy it for the luxury...it's all muscle contained in a semi-sleeper package in stock form.

    Too many noises: clunks, clinks and thuds! Luckily the exhaust covers it up most of the time.
