Good morning.....well, after years and years away from anything that could be considered a high performance car, we are back in a Guard (anyone know why they called dark green metallic "Guard???") GT Premium Convertible, 6 speed auto.
I have owned many 'Stangs through the years.....starting with a Lime Gold '67 coupe 200 cubic inch 3 speed (brand new, and inherited from my brother when he left for the service), a 1979 5.0 Pace Car, 2 Cobras.....and others.
All I can say is that, right now, the new 2015 is a beaut! The exhaust tone is nearly perfect, and a very good reason to keep the top down......

I've been busy getting it all shined up with my favorite wax....Collinite 845...... When I get some good pics in the sun that will show this color off the best, you can bet that I'll be posting lots of pics.....thanks for the welcome too.

Thanks! It is the prettiest car I've ever owned, by far................but that dark color is going to be hard to take care of -- I can see that already.

More and more the more I drive it. The only things that surprise me a bit are the cowl shake that it has and the lack of nav in a car with a retail price within shooting distance of 50 K. As for the rest, the car is perfect. I love the exhaust tone....loud when you are on it, and only a quiet burble when cruising....idle volume is nice too.
The seats are supremely comfortable, the top's operation is silent and fast -- up or down in about 7 seconds.

Thanks!.........to me this color looks almost like a completely different car than the bright yellows, oranges or reds. And nothing against any of those colors, as they are very sharp!
I hate to say this, but to me the Guard looks more Audi-like........just sayin'

so in the real world it's gray/green? From the pics I'll back you on more of a refined color.

In the garage, in the half light there, the car looks really dusty even when it is freshly washed, so there are definitely some gray highlights to this color. There is blue in it as well, and gold metal flake when it is reflecting direct sun.
Very different color than I've ever had. I've always said that owning a black car is not a color, it's a career choice.....and this dark of a "green" is not going to be much different....but so far, I love it more and more each time I see it in a different light.
