Are there any owners of the five liter V8 Mustang around here? Or has anyone ever driven or been driven in one over a longer period of time? I'm curious as to how suitable it is (or isn't) for longer drives, and by this I mostly mean the noise. Can you drive it for, say, six hundred miles and arrive at the destination as fresh and calm as you would after a drive in a Mondeo? Or will the loud V8 growl annoy and tire the hell out of you, making you feel like your brain were liquefying and leaking through your ears, and making you swear you'll pick a different car next time?
Can you have a normal conversation with your passenger at 85 mph?
I'm sure the V8 is absolutely marvellous when you're in the mood. But will it drive you mad when you're not? Will your neighbours hear you from three blocks away when you come home in the evening?
