Because the six has perfect primary and secondary balance, and the four only has primary balance. It shakes.

Also, the six represents heritage and tradition.

With the Mustang discussion, it was about keeping the tradition. But then I owned a Morgan with sliding pillar front suspension and pressurized oil lines from the engine galleries to lubricate that suspension, so the live axle was pretty far advanced by comparison.
