2007 Ford Mustang GT Premium 2dr Coupe (4.6L 8cyl 5M)
For us older baby-boomers Mustangs are well known as an iconic class of car. Until 2005 Mustangs had been gradually & pathetically compromised by quality and design beginning in the mid seventies. Now we have the best of both worlds, new age technology, cutting edge performance and classic design. Yes, they have cut a few corners, big deal. This particular design window and the features available has made this one of the new generation of collector cars. Somebody at Ford finally got "it." From the growl of the engine, to the stereo system, to the custom wheels and all the technology in between, it is everything we could never of dreamed up in the 60's. The most FUN! car I have ever owned.
Exterior design is a compelling retro style-flawlessly melds the 60's with the 21st century. Very rapid stop to 60 acceleration and cruises at 80mph. 5 speed shifts very smoothly. Interior seating is sports car comfortable and the leather is smooth and tight. This car is an absolute joy to drive.
The cabin is space capsule tight and might be a challenge for a taller person. Center console drink holders do not work well with the 5 speed. Glove compartment too small. No interior trunk release latch and light switch has no automatic features. Overall, these are very minor inconveniences.
