Cool Like a CHAMP!

Well... im not sure how many have pulled this off... but i must say, she performed beautifully!

6 months ago, i took my '07 GT half way across the US going from Abilene, TX to Burbank, CA. Not even a hiccup was made on that trip. Last Tuesday, due to unforeseeable circumstances, I had to drive from West Covina (yep, moved in the interim) to Clearwater, FL. Not only did the drive go smoothly, but I was seeing 32+ MPG in gas mileage through parts of the trip!

Needless to say, my ever increasing love affair with my mustang is ever growing!!! As well as watching all the heads turn as I cruise down the highways!

Such a beautiful sight!!!!

Sorry... Ill shut it now lol

I drove my 06gt from Barstow, ca to Lincoln, Nebraska and back no problems and got good gas mileage, considering I was doin about 80 the whole way. My foot is a lil heavy so I had to be carefull driving through the snow. Ha
