Hello all. My name is Kevin and this is mustang #5 for me. I just picked up a 2011 premium GT in Konig blue. You can see picks of it in my garage. It only has 600 miles on it so far since I just picked it up on 1/26/2011. Like I said, this is the fifth one. I no longer own the previous ones though.. I miss #4 the most. I had a black 1999 cobra. It was #55 off the line. Still have the free leather jacket that all of us '99 owners got from Ford that year though. I parted with it when it developed a rod knock at 70 thousand miles. I never ragged on it or modded the motor either. It had been using too much oil between oil changes, over 2 quarts, but Ford said that it wasn't excessive. I didn't have a place at the time to fix the motor myself so I traded it off and got out of sports cars for a while. The new ones brought me back with their body lines throwback to the old 68-69 models and of course with the new 5.0 as well. First planned mod is probably going to be a k&n filter with a new ffrp flash to boost the hp and get rid of thus skip shift.

Thanks I do to. It is great fun to drive. I took my two neighbors for a ride this afternoon to go bowling. One of them asked what does the 5.0 on the side mean so I showed him. He is now properly educated. No better teacher than a 5.0 with 3.73s

Welcome! Also, most manufactures allow for 1000 miles to burn 1 qt of oil. Crazy, I know, but we don't get to make the rules. Sometimes I have to look at customer's and give that discription. It's pretty hard to keep a straight face. The new cars are beautiful and I hope to have one eventually.

It is crazy. That is what they told me. 1 qt per thousand miles was "normal". I used to be a mechanic before I got into engineering so I knew it was bs. That kind of oil usage is not normal for the mileage I had. Oh well, I have my new one now and I love it. I plan on keeping this one for a long, long time. I love the body lines of these new ones.
