2011 Ford Mustang GT 5.0: Good Times

December 17, 2011

You know life is good when you end up with the Mustang GT 5.0 two weekends in a row. I don't know how it happened, but I'm certainly not complaining about it. I love driving this car.

I think it has to do with that 412-horsepower V8. And the six-speed manual. Oh, and rear-wheel drive, fairly stiff suspension, Michelin Pilot Sport PS2s and Brembo brakes.

And, of course, the 5.0 sounds fantastic anytime you get hard into the throttle.

This car makes even mundane drives/errands, well, a whole lot less mundane and errand-like.

Yep, life is good when you're driving a 2011 Mustang GT 5.0.
