2011 Ford Mustang GT 5.0: Golfer Alert

If you're a golfer, no doubt you watched South African Charl Schwartzel come out of nowhere to shoot a 66 on Sunday to win an exciting Masters golf tournament. But if you're a golfer that's also interested in a Mustang GT 5.0, you need to be aware.

Our 2011 Ford Mustang GT 5.0 is equipped with the optional Shaker 1000 audio system ($1295) which bumps out an impressive 1000W (must be peak power.) The Shaker 1000 has two door-mounted subwoofers and two additional 500W subs in the trunk.

But forget about fitting two sets of golf bags in there if you check off the Shaker 1000 option box: only one regular stand carry-bag will fit.

I need to be able to carry at least two golf bags in my car; it's a Go/No Go criterion for me.

And you? Is there something that must fit in your daily driver? (Yeah, I know: with Monticello it's the bike.)
