New Mustang Owner, that's me!

Hi everyone! Just bought my Mustang on Monday and happened upon this site today. This vehicle is the latest and greatest in a string of unique cars I've owned through the years:

'95 - 19882 Jeep CJ-5 (Black, 4-speed manual)
'98 - 1995 Jeep Grand Cherokee (Probably the only "boring" car I owned)
'02 - 2002 Volkswagen New Beetle 1.8T Riviera Blue Limited Edition (auto)
'06 - 2006 Mini Cooper S (Red, Bonnet Stripes, Foglamps, 6-speed manual)

Finally, in '08 graduated to:

2008 Ford Mustang GT Deluxe (Vapor Metallic)

Besides the beauty and sexiness of the '05-'08 Mustangs, there isn't much more special about this vehicle yet, but I do plan on adding black racing stripes to it soon. I also miss the responsiveness of the Mini's supsension (but not it's cargo space!) and so I might look into getting a suspension upgrade as well. I've considered upgrading to 18 inch wheels, but after really looking at the current 17" wheels on my car, I realized that they actually add to the "retro" look of the car.

I would have to say that this is by far my most favorite car yet. The Beetle and Mini were both fun and fast cars, but impractical in many ways. There were times I would choose not to buy something to take home because it would be too big to fit in the car. Also, to maintain about 90Mph (the typical traffic speed on the I-5 south between my home and work) the Mini needed to maintain about 4000 RPM. I've always felt that at that rate, German engineering or not, the engine would end up wearing out prematurely. Finally, front wheel drive cars just don't grip the road when accellerating. I've spun my tires more than a few times in my Beetle and Mini-- and I wasn't trying, believe me.

Anyway, I'll be posting pictures in the garage. Probably tomorrow!
