2007 Ford Mustang GT Premium 2dr Coupe (4.6L 8cyl 5M)
Your a little late for your appointment and you must change freeways..entering the inside lane and then must crossover four lanes to make the first exit 3/4 mile on the right (the exit you hate). As you come down entrance in 3rd gear there are three trucks abreast in the right lanes. A white Camry is ahead of you with a gnarly mess of traffic behind the trucks.. but a break ahead of them. The Camry immediately moves to the freeway leaving you the rest of the entrance ramp.. You nail it quickly openning up 4-5 car lengths before you move over and hit 4th. Catching the break in traffic, you slide over the remaining lanes easily making the exit. That's when you know why you bought it!
Nasty snarl in 3rd! Going on a Saturday night double date with your friends or being able to pick up a few supplies for your kid's soccer team after work. Let's face it, it's not the fastest thing out there (Vet?, Viper?,911GT3?), but for a practical sporty V8 car it stands alone.
Needs Home Link, a place for sun glasses, and could use a plusher interior but for the price it's not bad. (Ford might think of doing a plusher stretched four passenger version of this vehicle with four doors (of course) and call it the "Thunder Bird".)
