2012 New York Auto Show

What a nice day to see the cars in New York!

After a quick ferry ride across the hudson, my son and I went to the 2012 New York auto who, an annual pilgrimage since my dad took me back in the day.

Knowing the terrain, we went in by the Ford section and was surprised to see NO mustangs at all. I asked and they were downstairs (where the trucks are) in a display.

A few notes about the show, Ford has used (over used) the black wheel with machine finish. On the new sport edition of the Focus, Fusion, Taurus as well as the Raptor, Super Duty Platinum, explorer Sport and an edge model as well.

And of course the Mustang!

The new Taurus SHO is a stunning beast as is the new Lincoln MKZ.

When we got down stairs we found seven (yes 7) mustangs in a group.

There was a Gotta have it green Boss, a Yellow(ish) Laguna Seca Boss, a blue Shelby GT, Red GT coupe, White GT/CS Convertible and a Deep impact blue V6 convertible.

Yes, thats six, the seventh a black Boss 302 was on its side, showing off its undercarriage.

A great showing of the Pony car, and quite honestly, one of the best looking cars there.

I asked about the 2015, and got no where.

Up at the Shelby display, they had the very first cobra, and a plethora of GT350 and 500's plus the super shame and of course the Shelby 1000.

When I initially saw the Gotta have it green, i was thinking MEH!, but its metallic and honestly, stunning!

I have added some photos for your enjoyment!

Re: 2012 New York Auto Show

Sorry, one more note, the Shelby 1000 was a 5.4 with a Kenne Bell liquid cooled supercharger, it produced 950BHP!!!

its a $150k (yes thats $150,000.00) package, you send shelby your GT500 and for a few measly bucks, you get a Shelby 1000!

The photo below is a Super Snake!

Re: 2012 New York Auto Show

To each his own on Color, My Raptor is Molten Orange, and I love it.

I do think that "Gotta Have it Green" (probably thought of at Coldstone Ice Cream) is a color you can wake up one day and say "Oh No!, What did I do?"

---------- Post added at 07:57 PM ---------- Previous post was at 07:57 PM ----------

But, while I'm thinking of it, is there a BAD color for a mustang?

Just got out of auto show, eating dinner now. It was pretty awesome, I got a thing to test drive a new ford and they give you $50. I figure I'll go and see but I have a feeling I'm going to walk into a new 2013 5.0 lol.

Re: 2012 New York Auto Show
