First time Mustang/domestic owner here...where to begin?
When I was 5, my grandpa took me "Dukes of Hazarding" in his '66 Coupe. From that point forward I loved cars and especially Mustangs.
I grew up in the Nissan plant in TN (dad is an engineer), and I worked there as a tester through high school. After a few years of Nissan only, this winter I decided to pick up a Honda for a winter beater. Then I came across a dream come true...
2011 Ford Mustang V6 Base Automatic
1 owner (former lease)
Certified used (7yr/100K)
$12,000 until I negotiated a bit. $10,000 w/tax, title, plate transfer.
Bye bye rusty Honda!

The Frontier is staying stock minus the Nismo intake. Once the warranty expires I'll consider heavy modification.
The Mustang will be a mild build. My focus in primarily getting the most out of the V6 with a tune and bolt-ons. The suspension and drivetrain will get a little more modification. The goal being weight reduction and improved handling. The guy's at Horsepower Techs are helping me with this build, and I'm sure they will pester me to supercharge it. We'll see...
