2005 Ford Mustang GT Premium 2dr Coupe (4.6L 8cyl 5M)
What an incredible car! Mine is a torch red GT with red leather interior and now 1,000 miles, and what fun to drive. Also have an '03 Corvette convertible with 50th Anniversary package, and while I still love it, the Mustang is more immediate fun to drive - fast, sure-handling, great visibility and big fun! Not for the timid - gets a lot of attention everywhere it goes - on the road, at stoplights, in parking lots, etc. Ford got it right this time - drives like the true cousin of my 44K mi, '68 Mercury Cougar XR7 with 390. The sounds & overall feel are much more similiar than I ever would have expected. BIG FUN!
Big Fun Power, retro interior & exterior design, dash design & details, aluminum trim, build quality, comfortable sport seats, excellent visibility, great Shaker 500 stereo, responsive & positive shifting automatic, tossable-controlled handling, & confidence inspiring brakes
Maybe add auto-dimming mirrors, heated seats & Sirius satellite radio as factory options (ya ya I know, it's a Mustang, but it's also the 21st century!).
