Got room for another?

Hi folks! Been kinda a lurker here. With a 93 2.3 DD, and an 85 SVO. Well his evening I sealed a deal on a 2010 GT Premium. First of anything past the beloved Fox for me to own. Driven a couple early S197's, and all I can say about the '10 is WOW! Waiting for my workers comp settlement to come and I'm going to pick her up. A friends brother bought it new and has only 3000 miles on it, still smells new. He and I shook hands on the deal this evening, he's cool on holding it for me a couple weeks til the funds come. Plus it gives him time to get the oil done, tires rotated, and have a nick on the door handle repaired. I feel like a kid on Xmas eve! Now I have to learn a whole new generation of Mustang, as these are super duper rocket science compared to my old Foxes! LOL!

I don't wanna ruin a great moment or anything but you should have skipped the 4.6 motor! And went right to the new 5.0!

The 10 is still a nice car and it is the best out of the 05-10 model years an is leaps better than the svo and 2.3 your use to. But the new 5.0 is the best in the gt's ever....

Unfortunately that wasn't in my budget for the new 5.0.... Eventhough it would have been sweet. I'm not out there to be the fastest guy around just to have fun, one thing I have learned in my 25+ years of playing with cars is, there's always someone faster and with more money. LOL

I have had a few nice 5.0 Foxes and a 66 too.

Fair enough. And your right there is always someone faster and with something better. And you will have fun with the 2010! I had an 07gt before my 11 and loved it!

Re: Got room for another?

Thanks all! I'm sure I'll have some questions. Yes, he had the sides of the cowl rise painted black. He said he was gonna do the stickers, but had the paint done when he had the quarter louvers done, he's got a buddy who does paint. Same guy who is going to the door handle nick. Already have set of mufflers lined up from a buddy, LOL!

Congrats and !

I'm a 10 owner too and have no regrets on my purchase about 4 months ago! I'm not planning to take it to a track and use it as my DD. It is my first muscle car and will DEFINITELY not be the last.

I purchased mine a little over a month ago and like u it is my DD. I enjoy it for what I brought it for, great power and speed within (and sometimes outside of lol) the speed limit and a great exhaust note.

Yeah, we're definetly the red headed stepchild, with the new body and 4.6... But the way I look at it, the 4.6 and associated mechanicals if the car have had 5 years to get the bugs worked out. I bought a car years ago on a first year redesign and it was a total p.o.s..... Still patiently waiting for my check... Lined up the inspection for it today. With window tint a lot of places won't even touch a vehicle. It's like one shade darker than legal... And already have my 93 LX sold to a neighbor whose gonna put a nasty V8 in it! He asked me tonight when it was ready, he's already got the engine lined up! LOL
