2011 Ford Mustang GT 5.0: The Routine
November 30, 2011
Here's how I know I'm becoming you-kids-get-off-my-yard old -- I go through this routine every time I drive our long-term Ford Mustang GT.
Honestly, I cannot understand why this is even a feature in a 412-hp muscle car. I have tried all the various color options for the gauges, and I dislike them all. These white gauge faces are not great, but I dislike them the least.
Worse, with all these color options, they're always getting reset to zany colors and I dread getting into this car like I dreaded sitting down in my high school PC lab when all the backgrounds would be set to hot pink and all the text would be set to red.
I just want to get in our Mustang and think about driving -- shifting, steering, the way the engine sounds. And so if I owned this car, I would never lend it out -- not because I'd fear my friends would do burnouts and dump the clutch (that's a given), but because I couldn't risk they would reset my lighting preferences.
