2006 Ford Mustang GT Premium 2dr Coupe (4.6L 8cyl 5M)
I finally got the car I always wanted and couldn't be happier. This car turns heads wherever it goes and never fails to excite. It is a great daily driver but when you push the go pedal it pushes you back into your seat above 4 grand in a very nice continuous power band up till about 5000rpm before redline; even at 6000 ft in Colorado this car pulls nicely. The $4000 buck premium for the convertible is well worth it - the very well made rag top goes up and down fairly quickly and when up holds out the road noise pretty nicely. I highly recommend this vehicle for people that want a whole heck of a lot of fun for a very reasonable price.
Engine, engine, and the engine. This car has been totally embraced by the aftermarket makers for everything from CAI's to turbos to superchargers. The top is great and fit and finish seem very good for a domestic car.
Fix the darn skipper 500. Add more features for reading MP3's. Do something to liven up the center console that in all black is very very boring to look at. Chop the darn 18,000 foot radio antenna and shorten it.
