What I love the most about my V6 Mustang

I like the less expensive insurance.
I like the Less expensive 87 octane gasoline.
I like my Miles per Gallon.
I like the 305 horsepower.
I like the looks of the body shape.
I like it that a million aftermarket parts are available to make it my own.
I like it that there are many,many Mustang shows in my side of America.
I like the sequential turn signals.
I like the very visible tail lights.
I like my 18 inch wheels.

I totaley love the V6 3.7 engine in my car.
I also love the great working Automatic Transmission.


Inside:
I like the whole interior.
I like the use of good old fashioned "KNOBS" on my radio and air conditioning.
I like the storage in the doors.
I like the rear seats fold down for carrying a lot of stuff when needed.
I like the accessory plug on the dash.
I like the storage in the console.
I like the way the controls are laid out for easy use.
I like my Bluetooth.
I like the buttons on the steering wheel.

What I don't like,
Well, I'll be darned- Can't think of a single thing I don't like about My 2012 MCA premium Mustang.--(maybe the ugly calipers and fake gas cap) I did remedy those with all the stuff available to make it my own. I still could have lived with them if I had to.

I thought that California was a Hot Rod state.

Hi Adamp1,
I thought that your state was a Custom car utopia. It seems that a lot of aftermarket parts manufacturers are in California.

I love what you said:

Not much on my car yet since California is filled with Hippies who think HEADERS and a CAI is bad for the air and people but driving a car filled with bong smoke and a medical marijuana card isn't.
Most of the custom car builders are in California and I'm sure they probably don't have any problems getting cars inspected or do they just ship them to Nevada to get tagged?

I'm sure happy I live in Florida. We don't even have car inspection here in my county.

Ronnie

In CA, anything is illegal unless submitted to the CA DoT for approval. It cost manufacturers money and the part is "expendable" and cannot be returned. Very few parts are submitted for this and are thus illegal in CA.

It's only illegal if you get caught. A foul ain't a foul unless the referee blows the whistle. Lol

Thanks ronnie. I get more and more frustrated about our emission laws. Dont get me wrong, its an awesome state but their priorities are not right.

CA is a utopia for aftermarket parts but its one of those "you can look but cant touch" until they so.

I love the fake gas cap. Saw a 65 the other day where the guy took the gas cap off filled it in and you filled up by opening the trunk. Looked like crap and is a stupid idea.

Lol... I bet the old tank rusted and he put a racing fuel cell in it instead of a replacement tank. Cheaper I bet.

Agree,

Love style
Love interior
Love unique 3.7 w/305 HP and 29mpg

Wish I had that 302 quad exhaust though... Maybe one day when I can afford a second car!

Great thread!

Ford put out a customizer app for the Mustangs. Camaros have nada.

I don't even know if I want a Boss 302 now

I know it sounds strange but I really love this 3.7 V6 automatic. I named my car "BOSS 3.7" and after me pulling away from a 2001 SVT Cobra he lives up to his name.

I'll explain,
On the National Parts Depot cruise from Ocala Florida up to Cedar Key one of the cars about ten in front of me stopped to let a dump truck and a few cars out of a jiffy store parking lot. I don't know why because we did have a Police escort and it was a very stupid thing to do. The Dump truck held steady at about 35MPH. A few Mustangs in front of me got to pass everything. When my turn to pass the road was clear as far as you could see so I pulled out and floored it passing about 15 cars and the dump truck. The Cobra in back of me did the same but I really pulled away from him pretty bad. After getting passed the Dump truck I slowed down to about 80 and hoped to catch up to our convoy of Mustangs and Fords. (Finely did in a few miles) I pulled into Cedar Key and parked. A guy came running up to me asking if my car was a modified Boss 302. He was the SVT Cobra owner and did not believe me when I told him my Mustang was a V6. I actually had to pop the hood and show him. I also showed him I had an Automatic Transmission. He said His car was a V8 at 330 Horsepower and he had it floored and I pulled away from him bad.

I'm thinking he did not go down enough gears at the start of passing and when I got going he could not close it up. That is me just guessing but I was sure not going to tell him that. As far as I'm concerned I outran a Cobra.

Now I can call my car "Boss 3.7" and feel good about my car's name.



Matches my side stripe just perfect.
Ronnie
