Lovin it...hopefully Toyota will build few F's in '09 and going forward....

And a bit off topic:

Not sure why v8 cars take it in the shorts every time gas mileage comes's just not true in all F gets the same mileage as my '04 4 cylinder mazda 3 on freeway trips...about 27-28 mpg....why? cause the 3 ran at about 3300 rpm at 75 where the F is at 2K a 160HP 4 banger did no better than a 416HP v8 at speeds most people drive on the freeway.

I'm not sure why manufacturers don't embrace this more...overdrive type gearing seems to be the one way to really get mileage increases...keep the last gear (5th, 6th, 7th or whatever) a really tall gear for highway cruising.

Anyway, glad to see the F value holding...
