Well, it's been a while since I've joined a forum so bear with me and my wall of text.
Now I must confess, as my handle suggests, I am indeed a convert. I grew up surrounded by GM. My uncle got a 64 Corvette when I was 10 which prompted by love for all things Chevy. My first car was an 88 Camaro, and second was an 85 Z28 with around 400hp. Those cars eventually fell apart and up until last March, I was driving an 86 MR2 with a 5spd. After 3 years (and 500k miles) of fun and faithful servitude, it finally started acting out. It was replaced by an automatic 2012 Jetta SE.
After less than 10 months, I was fed up. I missed the sound and feel of a rear wheel drive V8. I didn't want to get a new Camaro, because I don't like hitting things while backing up. I didn't want to get a Challenger, because I like being able to turn. All that was left was my teenage nemesis: the Mustang.
Now knowing that I was a few grand upside-down in my Jetta, I hesitantly called a dealer about a trade appraisal. Next thing I know, I'm at the dealership behind the wheel of a 2013 GT with a salesman riding shotgun. There was no hiding the grin that tore across my face when I did a 2nd gear pull right out of the parking lot. After about 2 hours of double-talk, smoke, mirrors, and negotiating, I apparently had purchased a 2014 Mustang
GT in Oxford White. The only thing saving me was the X-Plan pricing through my employer, along with being 24 years old and telling them I go through cars like Kardashian marriages.
I am still waiting on delivery, so I have no pictures to post yet. However, I have already ordered a new shift knob, tint for the tail lights and marker signals, and some black vinyl for the hood vents from American Muscle.
I very much look forward to spending some time on the forums getting to know all of you fine gentlemen/women, and learning more about the best Mustang to come out of Ford since the early 70s.
