Hmmm. Ford website says 11 models. Looks like that's bogus. Go check for yourself. As for women, love them but they typically have different priorities then men. Generally they go for looks over performance. Are you an interior decorator or florist?
In this case "model" refers to optional features on the base chassis. Don't you know what a chassis is?

As far as my career choice, no, not quite. I use advanced technical knowledge to design stuff. Big stuff that people spend much of their lives working to pay for. Stuff that if failed, would likely kill the folks that are paying for it along with their families and friends. Since you don't know much about cars, I wouldn't expect you to comprehend what I do.

Re: Advice needed.. V6 or V8?

No, I'm a financial guy with an aerospace engineering background. Have done frame off restorations on classic muscle cars, owned mustangs, corvettes, etc. been part of several car clubs, and have modified everything, was a professional car electronics installer for 4 years for a top end shop, and years ago was a friend of John Delorean so I guess I know nothing about cars, and I know they use the same chassis to make all the models of the mustang, and in the past have used the same chassis to make several different cars and even from several different makers. Chassis is not a model. And Ford lists on the site I just posted they have 11 different models of mustang, all based on the same chassis. A good example is in the mid 80s you could get 3 models of the camaro, Berlinetta, Z28, and IROC in '85 for example, and the Firebird or Trans Am from pontiac, all using the same chassis. Give me a break clueless. What you are saying then is the Pontiac Trans Am and the Chevy Berlinetta were the same model because they used the same chassis. I'm sick of the ignorance. A chassis is the basic frame. The model dictates the body and drivetrain. Options are the frills you put on the model like leather seats or stereo upgrades. Occasionally a motor is an option on a model like on the GC but your mustang is the secretary version, which is what Ford originally marketed the V6 mustang as when it was introduced in '64. Looks pretty and putters down the road.

Re: Advice needed.. V6 or V8?

So you flunked out of engineering? I'm not surprised.

Re: Advice needed.. V6 or V8?

I only know GM so am used to "platforms" and "bodies" (e.g. Trans-Am/Camaro are F-Bodies but have been on several platforms. Then there are models vs option groups. A model is refelected in the front of the VIN and an option is not. Some years a GTO was an option, others a model so is that also.

Looks like Chrysler-Jeep-FLAT uses Assembler (Jeep) Line (Grand Cherokee), Series (Laredo), then Style (4 dr SUV). Just terminology

Now have never had a F*rd so do not know what they use could be "chassis" for all I know. Do know that Marketeers say anything they want.

ps had an Iron Duke Fiero once (secretary car), prefer a GT V-6 5-speed.

Yeah, unibodies replaced the classic 'chassis' which had a frame and now they are called bodies or platforms. As for flunking out I was smart enough to know that financial guys make more then engineers so I changed.

I would challenge that statement on the whole. I think in the financial sector there is a greater earning potential for the top echelon, but I think overall Engineering is a field where one is more sure to earn a great living than the financial sector. Much more stable, less volatility.

I see a lot of people's incomes in my line of work and Engineers are VERY well paid.

Re: Advice needed.. V6 or V8?

Wow, this went downhill fast.

I think the V8 is a better, that's why I bought one.
Although honestly, the Diesel would have probably been a more "practical" choice....

don't be bringing that diesel BS talk in here. Real engines have spark plugs and 8 cylinders, anything else is lame.

My brother is a mining engineer and makes a lot of money and I have a few friends who do financial work who make a lot of money. If you are good at what you do, the field doesn't really matter. You will make your money. I work on computers on a help desk and make as much as my brother who is an engineer and have no college or formal training past high school.
