2011 Ford Mustang GT 5.0: Brawler

June 11, 2012


It's funny, living here in L.A. doing what I do for a living, I use a lot of the same locations as most production companies. Just about every commercial, movie and tv show that uses cars on location I know exactly where it was shot.

I took our Mustang to a location just north of L.A. to do a little hiking. When I got back, I watched the movie "Drive"for the first time. Holy crap! There it was, Templin Highway! I just drive down part of that road. I wasn't driving the way "Driver"did, nor was I being chased. But you do feel you can unleash that beast of a Mustang any time you wish.

Unlike Ryan Gosling, I only had one reverse gear. Must have been a special edition movie magic Mustang.
