Hey yall, from south Arkansas.
Over the years iv had some V8's; 64 El Camino, 78 Camaro Z28, Chevy truck, ect...the usual chevy guy rides
(sorry to the chevy haters) Before the lil civic i had a lifted JK jeep but had nothing but problems and was commuting alot at the time, so when its trans lost 2nd and reverse, the engine started knocking, the front carrier broke, and the winch went out, i was sooo fed up with that guzzler i bought a Civic SI 6spd....and liked it
. It was the fastest thing i had owned and handled like nothing else.
Saturday my wife sent me into town for groceries, so i of course took the back roads, and had a great time of understeer and moderate speed. I passed the tiny chevy dealer as usual and in the place of the Raptor i always check out was a gorgeous black mustang. i whipped in and parked beside it, just to check it out. Its lines were perfect, it looked mean, mad, or maybe constipated, but in a good way, as though relief was on the way.
As i opened the door the window lowered slightly, saying "please come in, its an oven in here". There wasn't the screen i was used to, no cameras on the rear views, and no back up camera, I WOULD HAVE TO SWIVEL MY HEAD!, but it was still pretty. The LUND programmer in the A/C vent, which is needed in Arkansas, was unsettling.
Once it rumbled to life i was wanting it and after the test drive i was scared, slightly soiled, and needing it
. My buddy happened to call and told me the previous owner's name and number so i could ask questions, who happens to be a FORD mechanic.
On his advice i once again asked for a test drive, this time with the manager in the car. I had found out the the phone and sirius XM buttons dont work on this base model, so i told the man it was going to need repairing so he knocked the price from 22k to 21k. Then on the owners advice i accelerated quickly in 2nd and tried going straight into 3rd quickly, only to be locked out, and after seeing that the trans was "going out" he knocked it down to 18,900.
I ended up paying only 15 more per month than the civic, and insurance went down after shopping around.
I now own a beautiful14' FORD Mustang 6spd GT.
LUND Racing programmer
Custom horribly painted center console
American Muscle wheels
I love this car. Its amazing.
i love the look of it, but my supervisor said i cant go look at it as much anymore, and my wife said that moving all the kid's play stuff to park it in front of the bedroom window and leaving the proch light on at night isn't going to work.
The power is incredible, and i know to most of yall its still a tame lil 5.0, but to me its the ride of a lifetime. It's the first car i havent been able to find the floor with the gas pedal....yes i'm going to be a chicken for a few months
The gears are clunky, and feel stout.
The interior is muscle car
The sound is incredible
The color is perfect
The Car is a dream come true.
A man drove up my driveway just to find out what sounds so nice when i was letting her idle while reading a book.
People were taking pictures at 2 diff gas stations.
I have other drivers wanting to race and wanting to ride in it
Girls want to ride in it
Im considering hood pins, cuz i know ill be wearing out this latch with all the times i have to pop the hood for people
I love it, and its so amazing that i have 2 friends at dealers trying to get mustangs.
Thank yall, cuz all the years i was buying chevy parts and keeping them on the road yall were making sure that FORD kept producing and improving this car so that i could have the time of my life.
