We dont' live in 1970 anymore. Even "tiny" cars weigh over 3000 lbs. I mean, BMW can't seem to get it's SMALLEST car to weigh less than my old big block musclecars...

This is the reality of modern crash standards.

The SHO is a big car, and it's damn fast for the money. We had a Ford engineer here the other day in one. I didn't get a chance to ride in it, but the interior was pretty well put together, and well laid out. It's still not on par with the luxury market, but it's as good or better than most of the stuff in its price range.

Ford's got a pretty decent mainstream lineup these days, and the sales numbers are showing it.
