Yeah it's frustrating. In the end, when the wait is over, it all pays off. Us ford guys have been waiting for a very very long time. There hasn't been a "regular" production stang this good since the good old days of classic muscle. Finally something that deserves the cobra and mustang badge. We've been seeing f-bod taillights for like ever.

Honda will have there day too. With everybody putting out performance cars (turbo neon, evo, wrx, 300z, rx8, svt focus, etc...) honda will have to do something to hold on to it's market share and loyal followers. But it just might be too late then. They need to snap out of their econo mode and think performance.

we may not have to wait too long. the 04 nsx is said to be coming with a 4.0L ~450hp V8. and a RWD sports coupe idea based on an extended S2000 platform has been thrown around as well. i'm sure honda has something up their sleeves. i just wish they weren't always so damn secretive about what they're doing. with the latest bland civic and the kill-off of their only sports coupe, the prelude, they can't sit the sidelines while nissan, mazda, and toyota are coming out with all these upcoming cars like the 350z, rx8, and even a new supra is supposed to be released.
