I got my registration on Friday the 6/11/10, the tag Monday 6/14/10 and 800+ miles by Sunday 6/20/10. What a thrill. I had no problems to date and it is received well by most.
The 4.6 DOCH is a GREAT engine for how most of us use these cars. I get 22-24 MPG all day (with some goofing off). It is quite enough to leave the neighborhood early without rattling the neighbors windows yet hit 3000 RPM or above and you can scare women and children. I am running an iPod through a cheap amp and 4 cheap speakers and can hear it at both idle and 70 mph.
Man, can these things "scoot" .
Milk? WE NEED MILK!? I'LL GET IT, HONEY.

FYI, If you plan a 4 hour trip in a open top car on a sunny 90* day, WEAR SUNSCREEN!

Congrats on getting to the point that makes it all worth it!
X2 on the sunscreen. And bring it with you. You'll want to re-apply a couple times on a four hour trip!

Congrats, Tony! After seeing how well your car showed at Carlisle, it's great to see you aren't treating it like a trailer queen. Glad to hear the many benefits of the DOHC. Great job! It's going to be an unforgettable summer for you.

Here ya go David. That is my yard. I own a modest 1 acer. I takes me 1.5 hours to mow "give or take".





I still need to align the exhaust but I can't stop driving it long enough. :D
