I've seen and heard a 2015 GT350 up close and personal (from the outside). Nothing fake about that.

Same for the Ecoboost. It purrs at idle, but put your foot in it and you hear the horsepower.

Don't know where these people are getting their information but they've not actually been in the car I bet.

When it comes to these kinds of organizations, approval delayed is the same as approval denied. They cannot begin any meaning fund raising until their tax status is determined.

What the IRS essentially did was to put them in limbo. That means they couldn't represent themselves to potential donors as a bonafide tax exempt organization.

And how long were they delayed? Almost all were delayed until after the 2012 elections.

For Lois, it is mission accomplished.
